“This list is a disrespect to every woman” – Streamer criticizes the current Twitch charts

The latest “Female Streamer of the Week” rankings are causing outrage in the Twitch community, particularly because of the placement of female streamers’ content in the category Pools, hot tubs and beaches to produce. MeinMMO shows you what the opinions are.

What kind of list is this? Weekly rankings cause a stir on the “StreamAwards” Twitter account. But the most recent ranking, “Streamer of the Week”, from November 13, 2023, is met with considerable controversy in the Twitch community.

The top 5 list of German-speaking streamers consists of Mellooow_, HoneyPuu, xFibii, Vansessy and Mahluna. However, many are not happy with it, especially when it comes to Mellooow_ and Vansessy.

Twitch as an advertising platform for adult paid content

Why is the community upset? The outrage arises because both streamers have “Pools, Hot Tubs and Beaches” listed in the top 3 of their stream categories (via Twitchtracker for Mellooow_ and Vansessy).

This category predominantly shows women in bikinis or skimpy clothing in pools or hot tubs.

Streamers are accused of using a business tactic that is also used by international streamers like Amouranth.

S! for socials

Slightly suggestive but free content is shown on platforms such as Twitter, Instagram or Twitch, while more explicit content is moved to paid platforms such as OnlyFans. Twitch only serves as an advertising platform.

The “code” for this tactic is a phrase like “S! for Socials”: ​​This is an invitation to take a look at Onlyfans.

Amouranth also uses a similar business tactic:

Amouranth wants to enable her fans to be more close – artificial intelligence should achieve this

What are the comments? The Twitch community reacts indignantly to this list, with numerous negative comments underlining the dissatisfaction.

Even the prominent German Twitch streamer MckyTV, who had previously expressed his concerns about such streams, is clear about this. In a comment under the Twitter post he writes:

This list is a disrespect to every woman who sits down for hours every day and thinks about content. We can’t do anything about Twitch, but at least removing these streams from the list would be a start.

The unanimous opinion in the community is that such content should not appear in the rankings:

  • “AZPECT-CUSTOMZ” writes: “Stream Awards for what? Shoot your ass into the camera in leggings? There are streamers who agonize over content and try to promote entertainment in their community, while others simply stick their butts in the cam. THEIR chat alone is disgusting. How can you condone something like that… real L take.”
  • “Polish Priest” writes: “Indication of poverty for Twitch Germany”
  • “Terranwolf” writes: “So this list cannot be surpassed in terms of disrespect. Why are Mellow and Vansessy on this list? The streams violate the community guidelines in every stream because the buttocks are in the foreground of the stream. Read the guidelines. Get them both out.”
  • “Ninjang” writes: “With all love, streamers who violate the ToS really shouldn’t be featured here!”
  • “PleX” writes: “And who watches this stuff? Precisely pubescent and adolescent ones. It is generally forbidden because minors are always involved. […] Finally do something, Twitch”
  • “ZeViBear” writes: “There are many streamers who deserve so much more to be on the list who produce decent and elaborate content. If a woman wants to make money with her body, go for it. But not Twitch. I think it’s a shame that you support this.”
  • “Mirii” writes: “I don’t understand why there are women on there who don’t do ANY CONTENT…. I mean, showing ass isn’t content for me & Twitch is the wrong platform for that!”
  • The heated reactions in the community are leading to calls for a revision of the criteria for these rankings. Many are calling for streamers who specialize in sexually suggestive content to be removed from these lists. The aim is to strengthen recognition for other content creators and ensure more diversity in the official rankings.
