    2nd the description.

    In the past, disabled streamers have been told by Twitch, that a disabled tag doesn’t exist, because it would lead to targeted harassment. As if the LGBTQIA+ hasn’t lead to targeted harassment for years.

    Denying disabled creators the ability to identify and tag their content as such is not just paternalism, it’s ableist.

    Disabled creators as capable of making their own decisions, and doesn’t need Twitch to parent them.

    There is a disabled community on Twitch. There are disabled viewers on Twitch. And it’s not small either. It’s estimated that 20% of the population is disabled. And they deserve the ability to find this community on Twitch.

    Streamers, more than ever, are adding captions which benefit d/Deaf viewers, HoH viewers, and those with auditory processing challenges. The Twitch community is already acknowledging and accommodating disabled folks. Why hasn’t Twitch followed the community’s lead?

    Blocking someone as a user, is not the same as blocking a channel. As it stands, only viewers can block. This isn’t equal. Allow users to block channels. This feature is needed, because the recommendation feedback tool isn’t listened too. Those channels can still be recommended. Further, if I’m lurking, I can get pulled into a raid. But there are some creators I never want to support. Because sometimes, one can go down the rabbit hole of a few raids and end up in a stream that says the n word.

    If someone is blocked by a channel, only the chat is locked. That user still gets notifications and recommendations for a channel they’re not welcome in. That isn’t a good UX. When blocked, the user should get a notification, and have that channel unfollowed, and hidden. The current system leads to creators receiving harassment on other platforms.

    The Trans community on Twitch is large enough, and unique enough to solicit a tag. Trans viewers, who are seeking their community, should have a tag to make that search easier. The LGBTQIA+ is too broad for this. To deny this tag, out of concern for the streamer and their community is paternalism.
