POKIMANE BACKS UP MIZKIF’S CLAIM WOMEN CAN GET STARTED ON TWITCH “EASIER”

WHAT HAPPENED?

Pokimane had a surprising agreement with Mizkif, who notably argued that female Twitch streamers have an “easier” time breaking 100-200 viewers than men on the platform.

“It is way easier for women to get to that 100, 200, or even 300 viewer count point. Women have it so much easier than men, and it’s just the truth,” he said during a March 5 stream.

However, Mizkif also admitted that women have a harder time surpassing 600 – 1,000 viewers, claiming they are “hard capped,” while men on the platform have an “infinite ceiling.”

I would say, from what I’ve seen, I don’t think he’s wrong. When you have 100 viewers or less, there are so many channels that when you’re a girl, you stand out because there’s just less girls than guys on this platform.

At the end of the day, Twitch has been and continues to be a male-dominated field, and when it comes to content, it tends to be easier to watch people you relate to. Until there’s more of an even demographic on Twitch, you’re still going to have these issues.

However, she did call out Mizkif for specifically saying that “women have it way easier than men,” claiming that he “likes saying polarizing things” to “farm the incels a little bit.”
