saygoodnight141 asked: Alright I don't know how long ago you posted that one very long thing about Onision but i would just like to say that all of his videos are JOKES. You don't understand that he isn't serious about these things. Thanks.
Don’t worry, I’ve made a lot of long posts in regards to Greg.
All his videos aren’t jokes. Let’s use his Speaks channel as an example.
On the Onision Speaks channel, Onision discusses vegetarianism, drug-free lifestyles, domestic issues & life in general.
If you’re an Onision fan and want to get to know Onision a little better, this is a great place to start.
This is his about section on his Speaks channel. I know these days he’s changed the format of his videos and he may incorporate some comedy in his videos but I do generally believe the Speaks channel definitely reflects his views on things. The type of comedy he uses in his Speaks videos is mostly that he mocks whatever he’s talking about but even though he conveys his message a bit differently from before I definitely think his videos on that channel reflect his actual views. He is still making videos giving people advice, even if the format is different, and his advice is still awful.
However, most of the videos I use for reference are older Speaks videos, where he definitely still used that channel to discuss topics in a serious matter. Such as his video A Horrible Rebound or Boring In Bed. The latter one is an example of how people would send him questions and he’d give answers or advice.
The first video I mentioned is a video where he basically slanders his ex for 15 minutes. Videos like this on his Speaks channel are everywhere, just like the serious advice videos.
I don’t know what the point is with your ask though. If you just wanted to tell me that all of Greg’s videos are jokes, then I’m sorry to correct you like this but you’re wrong.
If your point was to simply tell me I “don’t understand that he isn’t serious about these things" then I’m sorry to correct you again. I do realize Greg jokes a lot. Especially on his main channel. I couldn’t care less about that. I strongly dislike his comedy but that’s just my opinion. But still, even if he isn’t always serious he still conveys a message that is definitely serious.
So what is the point you want to convey? Am I not allowed to criticize Greg because he cracks a bunch of jokes on his main channel? I don’t know if this was your point, but if it was, I think anyone could spend all day criticizing his comedy if they wanted to. Comedy isn’t immune to criticism. That’s bullshit. Nothing is immune to criticism. In Greg’s little banana kingdom, “comedy!” is what he can shout to rid himself of any responsibility for his actions and words. I don’t share that point of view so I don’t care about that at all. It’s a cheap way for him to not having to take responsibility for anything he does and to manipulate his fans into thinking they can’t criticize what he says and does.
If I would pretend all his Speaks videos didn’t exist though, his comedy still tells me all I need to know about him to know I never want to be anything like him.
No one would sit on their ass and make money off of mocking a young girl’s suicide without somewhere in their messed up thoughts finding that an actually appropriate thing to do.
No on would sit on their ass and make money off of mocking the death of 3000 people and the suffering of all their loved ones without somewhere in their messed up thoughts finding that an acceptable thing to do.
Even though I don’t often talk about his comedy as much as other things, I think his comedy reflects his views and I definitely see it as fair ground for criticism. I have no problem criticizing his comedy if I find I want to. It’s not the act of him cracking jokes I would criticize, it’s the content of his words. I never watch his main channel videos so I rarely actually do criticize them but comedy is subjective and not everyone will find his comedy funny and they have every right to express those thoughts. The “comedy is subjective” argument goes both ways.
Sorry, I’ve wrote yet another long post. If you want to explain what you actually meant with your post, feel free to get back at me. I don’t know if I come off as a bit annoyed, I’m definitely not. At least not at you at all. You were perfectly civil with your ask and I appreciate that you took the time to send it to me, even though I don’t really get what the point was, but I think that’s on me and not you. Also, it’s cool you’re off anon, it’s nice to actually see who I’m talking to :)
