Add white, or caucasian
I don't really know why it seems like every other race has a tag but Caucasians don't. So you should add it
Double standards in a nut shell. It’s not racist to be white or put white on a stream. Just like it’s okay to put Latino, he/him. Singling out a race and not putting it on there IS racist. 👍
let us search or label streams with terms like white and heterosexual. all other possible groups under the sun are represented
White is not a race.
Should there be a "White" tag? As a white person, personally I don't think so.
While I will not personally use this tag, I did notice the absence of a "white" tag. If we are opening up the tag system to basically everything we can not then be discriminatory in what is excluded.
There is also no "heterosexual" tag, presumably for the same reason there is no "White" tag. As others here have said, if anything it feels like it sends the message that white and heterosexual are "default" states against which all other demographics are defined, which promotes heteronormativity and "whitenormativity," rather than uplifting minority voices and increasing representation as it was intended. I know that the idea is to combat systemic oppression, but by not having these options I think it might feel to some people like you are 1) making white/hetero the "default" and 2) inciting racial/sexuality division by treating different groups differently.
The fact that "man" is a category further complicates the message as I'm sure most viewers who are in favor of this White and heterosexual social invisibility would also be of the opinion that "man" should not be a category for the same reasons. If Twitch is adamant that "heterosexual" and "White" should not be categories (which I think is a huge mistake and as a decision will age poorly), then I think the "man" category should be removed too as many feminists will interpret this as a subtle way of saying "POC and queer people are oppressed but women aren't." The way you are doing it, with a foot on both sides of the line, feels more like a loss for both sides of identity politics than a compromise.
I assume "man" is here so that transgender/androgynous streamers can use the tag and avoid being misgendered, but I think the masculine tag can fulfill that role either way if that is the concern.
By not having white there effectively saying that white is the default and that's pretty rude
Just another example of systemic racism against white people. The signs are EVERYWHERE if you pay attention.
Seems like White is being excluded from this initiative for inclusion.
I feel oppressed I'm not able to put the correct tag on my streams.
Ya not having a white tag is oppressive.
There are only a bit more white (caucasian) people in the world, than black people and there are significantly more asian and even middle-eastern people, and they have their own tags. The world we live in today... you are almost expected to be ashamed of your race if your caucasian. At least, that is what the American social media movement wants you to think, but as an American company, they don't see the world from outside America.
We now have tags for all genders, a tag for most countries, a tag for ****** orientation. But strangely we don't have a tag for the White community?
This is not equality.
please add a White tag! i feel very left out of the current tag system...
