Hell yeah! 2011 throwback. :,)Hey, does anyone remember the Minecraft logo that an Onision fan made of Onision’s shitty logo?
Oh yeah! I remember seeing quite a few…
Just from searching google. I even found a video of one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpBN9Z3Y5J0
Also from his site: http://onision.net/index.php/gallery/image/3352-minecraft-onision-logo-fail/
@onision can you fucking not like stop the fucking hate 😡 #stopthehate #fuckoff #canyounot #stop
Let the next witch hunt of his continue. You can’t preach “Do what you want! I am whatever I wish to be!”
And then shit on the things people like. Let your fans enjoy their mine craft. Stop marginalizing people.
Just because you don’t like something, doesn’t make it “shitty”.
Side note: I used to play minecraft with some OnisionDrama tinychat people back in the day. Omg wait I totally have a picture. I’ll upload it in a sec.
Trigger warning: bullying
About a week ago Greg made a video on his Speaks channel titled “Why Is Bullying Bad?" and I decided to watch it because I was interested in hearing what his answer would be. And I was surprised. And I was surprised that I was surprised because I thought I’d heard it all from this guy already.
"To answer the question, it’s bad in most every single case cause it doesn’t really accomplish anything…"
I’ll get to that in a little while, but first of all, I have to explain to Greg what bullying is, because it’s clear he doesn’t know. In the beginning of the video he says it’s bullying if he cracked a joke at the expense of John Stamos hair. No. That’s not bullying. There are a ton of slightly different definitions of bullying but ultimately they are mostly variations on the same theme. In a resent study I’m going to present soon they go by the definition that bullying is "physical, verbal or psychological attacks and oppression on less powerful youngsters in repeated incidents over a prolonged period of time". So being called a name now and then is not bullying. It’s still wrong, but it isn’t bullying.
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get this started!
The study I mentioned is presented in a report for the BRÅ here in Sweden (the National Council for Crime Prevention) titled "School Bullying, Depression and Offending Behavior Later in Life" which is one of the most recent studies on this topic (2012) and can be found here (in English).
It is a review of globally conducted longitudinal studies (a longitudinal study means it is a study where the researcher repeatedly observe specific matters over a longer period of time) with the purpose of exploring whether bullying affects victims and perpetrators later in life specifically in terms of offending behavior and depression. As it was conducted for the BRÅ the purpose was to answer the question whether preventing bullying would also prevent crimes and mental health problems in the future.
I couldn’t agree less with Greg on why bullying is bad. In my opinion, which surprisingly seem to be backed up by a lot of facts, bullying is bad because of what it accomplishes.
Let’s look at this study. It’s unique and pioneering in the sense that this study controlled for other childhood risk factors to give the most accurate result as to whether it was indeed the bullying that was the cause for mental health issues or offending behavior and not other factors.
I’ll jump to the results immediately. After controlling for other childhood risk factors the results showed that:
Being a bully,
- Increases the risk of becoming an offender later in life by 89%.
- Increases the risk of becoming depressed by 41%.
Being a victim of bullying,
- Increases the risk of becoming depressed later in life by 71%.
- Increases the risk of becoming an offender by 14%.
On a little side note, Two of the authors of this report did another study prior to this one that showed that systematic school programs are proven very effective methods in dealing with and preventing bullying (what a surprise! “Just ignore it” is nowhere to be found in that study).
Back to our study, it also tackles Greg’s idea of "it’s just high school" and "everybody gets called a few names!" as the researchers ask themselves: “could school bullying be viewed as part of a developmental process, ‘one of those school experiences’ that prepare children for the grown-up world as some sceptics may argue?”
Their answer is “no”. If bullying is left alone and not dealt with it can have detrimental consequences on not only the individuals involved but their relatives, friends, future work places etc.
I think I’ll leave the study at that and tackle some of Greg’s quotes.
"When in fact, most the people being bullied that we hear about live in a first world country. They have all if not near all the things they need in life. So of course because we have all this luxury, fresh running water, food, a roof over our heads, sometimes even cable TV, what? We find ourselves looking for something else to feel bad about and in this case bullying".
These kids that are bullied don’t have to go “looking for something else to feel bad about”. They are subjected to it constantly. Closing your eyes and not “look for it” doesn’t make it go away. It’s a constant personal attack on you and there’s no way to hide from it, especially with the internet and the ability we now have to even anonymously harass others. Don’t limit victims of bullying and their experiences to “looking for pity” or whatever you’re trying to convey. It doesn’t matter that they have a roof over their head because even in the comfort of their own home, with a roof over their head, bullies can still reach them through the internet, through their phones, computers and so on. It doesn’t matter if they have food to eat when their bullies target their weight with their insults day and night. How can you make connections where there aren’t any? The fact that I have a TV has nothing to do with my anemia, to give an example outside of the bullying theme. You’re being irrational, shallow, simplistic and incredibly dense.
How can you be so utterly wrong about everything? I feel bad for you really.
"What do these words mean? Nothing! They only have the power that you give them."
No. They have the power our society give them. Words that are wrongfully used as insults such as “gay” or “retard” and words like “fat” or “stick” and whatever it may be, they are loaded with what our society has drowned them in and far more damaging than you seem to be able to comprehend. I’m once again surprised with the simplicity of your mind and your inability to see correlating factors and to look deeper into issues and try to understand them.
Greg thinks we should teach kinds how “trivial” of a problem it is to be called names constantly and he then mocks the idea of everyone seeing a naked pictures of someone’s boobs which I find pretty scary since he’s talking about school bullying and that would be considered child pornography.
I can agree with him on one point and it is that he says we should teach our children to be strong however I wouldn’t use the word strong as it sort of suggests that being affected by bullying has to do with the victim being weak and don’t agree with that idea. But I think that’s one part of combating bullying because I would think increased confidence in children would lead to less perpetrators as I know often times bullies bully out of insecurity (not all the time though) and it would surely also help victims to ask for help and such things. However that can never be our only focus, to only focusing on “changing” the bullied as if them being subjected to bullying is somehow rooted in something being wrong with the victims themselves. No, we need to focus on both the perpetrators and the victims and never with the premise that it’s the victims that are the problem.
Sure Greg, let the jerks be jerks and we’ll see where that gets us. According to studies like this one, it’ll only create more offenders and more sufferers of depression. Bullying is a multifaceted issue and needs to be tackled as such, reaching both perpetrators and victims.
The numbers speak for themselves, bullying increases the risk of becoming an offender and the risk of suffering with depression later in life. That is how it is. Combating and preventing bullying isn’t about telling someone to stick it out or to stop being a jerk. It’s a societal problem that affects the future well being and safety of a generation.
So why is bullying bad?
Bullying is bad because of what it accomplishes.
Let Toku get this straight. Oderpfuck makes a video about “Cutters”. He says fuck off cause “children in Africa are starving” the whole damn time.
Starvation =/= mental illness. Both are terrible and are different.
The dumbass just made a video where he wasted food called “EPIC baby food challenge (Eating Like A Baby).” He pretends to eat and spits up food, and then he dumps all kind of food all over himself.
I’ll let that sink in.
1. Yes, he did use baby food. It is still food. Babies eat as well, and if you were hungry enough you’d eat it too.
2. A lot is part of a meal or used to bake with… IT COULD STILL BE USED.
I’m just going to sneak in and drop these here.

Also in the baby food challenge he goes on his fun racist “ching chong ching chong ching chong” shit. He sure is funny! Huh huh huh
Just a fun little thing I found while looking at some Anime Expo pictures.
This cosplayer was the Death Note and his cosplay allows you to actually open the book and write the name of a person/thing/whatever.. and there I found Onision’s name.-fan submission
I often see fans praise Greg for how much he has grown as a person over the years, a progress that I fail to see. Let’s examine that thought in one specific area: sexism.
Greg in July 2011:
"The people who post videos with thumbnails specifically focusing on the sexual areas of the female body - should I be working with those individuals? Or should I take the moral high ground and say ‘you know what, if you put female body parts in your thumbnails and your videos as a focal point and you use that to gain profit, if you make a living off of degrading the female gender, I’m not going to work with you’ (…) Is objectification of the female body ok? (…) When it comes to men taking advantage of that, the stupidity of individuals who are willing to do that… *sigh*… and taking their entire gender down with them, I don’t know, I see that as a problem and something I don’t want to be a part of."
Greg in July 2014:
In my opinion, Greg is just getting worse and worse with time when it comes to respecting other individuals, accepting differing opinions, willingness to learn where he’s ignorant and his treatment of minority groups and vulnerable individuals etc. I’m willing to admit though that there might be some areas where he has improved, even though I can’t see it. In my eyes, it’s as if instead of maturing as he ages he is becoming more and more immature in every aspect of his persona and in his views and opinions.
I have a question for Greg though, why did you change your opinion about using the female body to fish for views? Because this is one of those rare moments where I would actually agree with you otherwise (that being your quote from 2011). Would you admit to your “stupidity” (to use your own words) in degrading the female body to make profit off of it? Or do you no longer think that there is anything wrong with doing so?
It seems to me that the only progress you’re making is in your desperation to get views and attention.
It seems to grow at the rate your name drops in the ranking system.
just-the-awkward-llama asked: Okay, so first off, I have a legitimate question: Why do you have a blog dedicated to someone you don't even like, and post things that are basically "hating" on him? It doesn't really make sense. If you don't like something, move on and ignore it, instead of dragging it out. I'm not running a hate blog for Hitler am I? No. Because there was nothing I can do about it. So instead of dedicating a hate blog to someone, why not just blog about something else? (I'm not on anon so I can prove a point)
I wouldn’t call this blog’s posts’ “hate”, more critiques and criticisms.
The difference between making a blog about Hitler and a blog about Onision is that, you’re right, we can’t change what Hitler did. We can make a difference with Onision.
One reason I run this blog is because I find his videos and opinions to be particularly harmful to his viewers considering their age range. Once in a while I will see ex-bananas coming forward thanking one of the Anti-onision blogs or YouTubers for helping them see the truth… and those are just the ones brave enough to admit it. It might not seem like a lot, but to them we are making a difference. As for the big picture, when I started this blog Onision was in the top 100 YouTubers. Now, his rank plummeted to number 572. I am not saying that was because of this blog, but I am saying it is in part the combined efforts of everyone that has spoken out against him.
I run this blog because I believe it is important. I dedicate a small amount of time almost each day to posting here because I am making a difference… maybe a small difference, but a difference.
When I was a teenager, I was bulimic for 4 years and I hated every second of it. What kept me from getting help were people telling me to “just stop” “be grateful” “think about all of the children suffering in Africa”. I felt like shit. Embarrassed, stupid, confused. On top of that, I was an Onision fan. Every day I went home from high school straight to my computer. I re-freshed my subscription box over and over until I would see his daily speaks video. I was mesmerized, obsessed. Sometimes I’d go all night watching his skits and advice videos. That was, until he made a video about eating disorders and over weight people. Calling them pathetic, weak. Think about starving children in Africa! I couldn’t stomach it. Not him too! I tried to reason with him, give him a different perspective. I returned to my comment to find out it was deleted along with all others trying to give a different perspective. I unsubscribed and that was it. Luckily for me I did not listen to him. Unfortunately, there are many that do, believing that their issues make them pathetic and selfish. Guilting themselves to act healed. The way I had to to get those people in my life off my back and to stop making me feel like shit.
I did not want to get personal, but whatever. Now you know.
