    Sure, ban someone for wearing Gym Clothes or a dress. But Alinity is okay? That's a really weird and unhealthy double standard.

      Yeah I'm fine with Twitch as porn site, and I'm fine with Twitch as child-friendly site. But it's getting pretty hard to be a "fan" of twitch given how they just randomly ban people. A streamer last week flashed her vagina and was banned for less than a day. There's clearly politics going on behind the scenes. It's a bold move on Twitch's part, because gamers are a notoriously demanding consumer. I assume that the more popular "titty streamers" bring in a lot of revenue in the form of subs and bits. But I'm pretty skeptical that it's enough money to cover all the bad press that's been brewing against them. There hasn't been a huge story yet, but it seems like only a matter of time.

        You are absolutely right. If twitch would allow porn then sure, y not. Of not then okay. But they will need to do something, being in the middle and not deciding which route to go is just bad.
