I once saw this crime documentary vid use an actual photo of the body for their thumbnail. Like try having respect for the dead- did someone really sit there staring at a corpse and think "yea this will get clicks"
I guess they wanted to teach you that animal cruelty is wrong.
Or maybe recomendations are random because all that talk about corporations spying on you is pure myth (seariously: I see ads for axes and chainsaws no idea why. I'm not into cutting or woodwork. Last thing I bought online was heart shaped mold for cookies).
Never searhed up anything about dogs or cruelty to animals. The closest animal thing I have is cute videos of cats and baby penguins, stuff like that. I searched up wild close encounters a while ago but I don't think that'd translate to this.
I think it's cool it's on the internet, it proves there's still violence going on in the world, also it helps the feds capture the assholes committing atrocities. Anyways yeah I agree it's better off on Liveleak. Also about that, pornography in the other hand contributes fucking nothing to the world and it's gross.
Out of curiosity what was the name of the video, if you can remember it of course.
I've never had graphic suggestions like that, but I do agree that YT's algorithm is beyond broken. I keep seeing those weird Elsagate-type vids sometimes on the sidebar when I'm checking out cartoon stuff.
YouTube's notoriously broken algorithm and people not having the brains to fix it properly aside, people who make abuse videos belong in one of three places: prison, a mental ward, and under a tombstone
The thing that annoys me about the Internet is the sheer amount of enabling these people get by not condemning their actions
That's the thing, there's no reason they should be giving me that kind of recommendation. The only other animal related video I regularly watch is this channel called Kittisaurus.
The site is odd, it keeps recommending me completely off the cuff things. A month or two ago it recommended me this video of a guy cleaning out a bee hive. I've never searched up anything bee related on YouTube in my life, not even the goddamn Bee Movie.
You know the one I'm talking about? I didn't mind it either (watched it fully even) and didn't think it was animal abuse. That wasn't my point. My point was I've never searched up anything to do with bees yet the algorithm suggests the video. Now it's searching up more horride stuff. Now I'm wondering, what next? Raw footage of a murder? Top Ten Suicides Caught On Tape?
A lot of porn is gore filled too, prolapsed anuses or people whipping their privates till they bleed? I'd say there is a thin line between gore and porn. Both have desensitized us to violence.
As long as there is no line in the sand people will start claiming that abusing animals is their kink and it will start to become normalized just like other categories of porn. Crush porn is a thing where small animals are crushed or killed in some way. Like I said a line needs to be drawn or we might as well not even be civilized anymore.
Yeah, there is messed up porn but I think it's real fringe stuff.
I don't think witnessing real death has decensitised me to violence, not at all. If anything I think I am actually more acutely aware of it.
Not to be mean (I think you fall just short of overly describing it btw) but for example I'm more aware of language. After going through far too many reddit threads of fuckers intimately describing shit I've come to the conclusion that describing violence (real violence that has video footage) in such detail is in some way every bit as bad as actually showing it.
I think you fail to understand that the messed up porn is quickly becoming the norm. A woman can't have sex with a man without him wanting to fuck her in the ass or, slap her around or choke her out, all under the veil of kinks and fetishes.
People are trying to recreate the shit they seen in porn because they've been told vanilla sex is boring and you need to spice it up with violence or you're a prude.
I have been in a relationship with a porn addict and know first hand how fucked up it really is. That's why he is my ex because I left his pathetic ass and found someone porn free thank god. But this porn addict asshole always kept pressuring me into anal and other shit, tried to break my back at one point just because he couldn't keep his erection otherwise.
Society has a porn problem and it needs to change. Many women are refusing to date any man that watches it because they too have gone through the same shit as me. I have read stories about women being in labor giving birth to their husband's child while that asshole is jacking off to a phone screen in the bathroom. It's pathetic and it makes me sick. And since you're on reddit I recommend checking out a sub called Love After Porn so you can see what women have to put up with in their relationships.
It's commonly consumed by ten year olds rn so this wouldn't surprise me. Honestly, we have a horrible porn problem on our hands and it's shaping the sexuality of our youth and it's become an addiction for MANY and yet nothing is done about it, it's terrifying.
It's getting to that point already. Kids younger and younger are discovering porn and becoming addicts. If it weren't for the introduction of internet porn and the constant extreme categories a lot of people today wouldn't have the kinks they do now. Porn is a huge problem in society but nobody wants to talk about it, because being anti porn is seen as being anti sex or sexuality.
No and I have no idea why the algorithm picked it up. I don't even search up dog related content and the animal videos I do watch are of this owner setting up these little obstacle courses for their cats or baby emperor penguin videos.
The thing that really bothers me is why YouTube decided to randomly show me this shit out of the blue. If it had been on LiveLeak, well that's par for the bloody course, but YouTube? Why?
God, that site has such messed up priorities sometimes. This is not the first time I have seen very disturbing violent content on the site. The owner of the video btw is posting it from the perspective of saving the dog but I don't care, that kind of content has no place on a site like YouTube.
I think the algorithm occasionally throws curve balls in an attempt to learn more about your interests. Idk why it thought animal torture would be an appropriate subject to show. Good call on not clicking the video, though. The algorithm would have definitely taken that as a sign to show you more of that shit.
The video says it's about rescuing the dog in question but it doesn't mind showing the image of the dog's torture in all it's awful detail.
One thing that's annoyed me for ages about YouTube is why the service doesn't allow people to block certain terms from coming up in results. For instance if such a service were to exist I'd include "died", "dead", "betrayed" "betrayal", "ending", "end" and so on because the algorithm seems to think that if you show any interest in a series you of course must want to see it's end.
