With every update, tweak, and clarification that YouTube has pushed out in the last 48 hours, they drive more harassment and vitriol against LGBT creators.

They have turned what should have been a clear policy rollout into a fiasco. It's unacceptable.
YouTube refused to communicate anything clearly yesterday. They directed reporters to their Twitter feed where they publicly rolled out update after update, giving more ammunition to the angry far-right creators they didn't actually ban — only demonetized.
Their vague blog post said they'd be "removing hateful and supremacist content." By my count, less than five channels were actually removed (one briefly removed was a history teacher).

Instead, they incensed every bad actor on the platform and whipped them up into a frenzy.
For a company as large as YouTube to put @gaywonk directly in the middle of a policy change — announcing pieces of it in a Twitter thread with him!!! — is insane.

I can't imagine what his mentions look like right now.
