Twitch streamer Annarf hammered home a point about “simping” and treating women differently because they’re women during a March 15 broadcast.

The Canadian streamer was playing Diablo 3 when her chat started joking about how all women are “queens,” something that Annarf disagreed profusely with.

“Women don’t need to be praised based on the fact that we’re women,” she explained. “Just treat women like you treat men. Respect them.”

She then turned her attention to the concept of “simping.” Simps are basically men who overvalue women and do or say things they may not agree with because they believe a woman would want them to.

“I dislike this odd need to put women on a pedestal. I think it creates really bad mentalities in women and women start becoming c**ts because they’re so entitled because men treat them differently. Stop treating women differently,” Annarf urged.

“She’s a b**ch? Treat her like a b**ch. She’s a good person? Treat her like a good person,” the streamer continued. “Stop making a big deal over women being women. It’s pathetic and it only makes us worse as people.”

According to Annarf, women become entitled when “simps” treat them like queens for no reason other than the fact that they’re women.

“She becomes under the impression that it’s normal,” the Canadian added. “When it doesn’t become normal for her, she’s pissed off. And then you guys are pissed off because she’s acting entitled.”

Basically, the moral and point Annarf was getting at was for men to stop treating women differently so that they’ll stop thinking they’re special. According to the streamer, the men who treat women differently are responsible for certain “entitled” attitudes.

Annarf isn’t the first personality to rally against so-called simps. As Dexerto previously reported, PewDiePie joking called out viewers who donated to streamers such as Pokimane and BadBunny.

Meanwhile, rising streamer and TikToker neekolul claimed that there was nothing wrong with simping and “worshipping” girls. “Simping isn’t bad. Simping is king s**t,” she said in a viral clip.

It would seem like there are many different opinions on the topic, and this debate isn’t going to end any time soon.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
