Female streamer claims one big Twitch star is encouraging sexism

Twitch streamer Peachachoo has slammed the “sexism and misogyny” she believes exists on the platform, claiming that one large creator actively encourages it.

Issues surrounding female streamers have long been a point of contention with Twitch, especially regarding their treatment by viewers and grey areas surrounding Terms of Service and what is and isn’t acceptable while live.

Now, Peachachoo has clearly had enough and spoken out on the issue, saying that one popular streamer has helped breed sexism, saying it’s “extremely disheartening.”

Instagram: PeachachooPeachachoo usually does ASMR or Just Chatting streams, as well as playing the occasional indie game.

In a livestream on January 5, Peachachoo was chatting with her audience when one viewer asked her opinion on the rise of ‘incels’ (involuntary celibates) on Twitch.

Responding to the question, she replied: “I think that we call them incels, but what we really mean to call them are sexists and misogynists, and I think that it’s really disheartening. I think that there’s a very large creator on the platform that advocates for and condones, and lets misogyny and sexism slide.”

Continuing on, Peachachoo explained how it feels to see said creator have such a large following: “It’s extremely disheartening to see a person with those really strong sexist opinions being followed by so many people. I think that’s really sad.”

The streamer didn’t stop there, though. She went on to call the issue “problematic,” claiming that it’s “accepted within that sphere [of people].”

Despite claiming that a major content creator on the site encourages this behaviour, Peachachoo didn’t implicitly name which streamer she was talking about.

The content creator currently has just under 16,000 followers on the platform which, while impressive, is likely trumped by that of the “very large creator.”

Peachachoo isn’t the first female streamer to claim that sexism is an issue on the platform, and she likely won’t be the last. It has been a widely-reported issue in many areas of gaming and entertainment – just days prior to this stream, a Luminosity Fortnite pro was called out for sexism against a female opponent.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
