Ninja explains his choice not to stream with female gamers

‘The only way to avoid [the rumors] is to not play with them at all’

1014171136.jpg.0.jpg

“I don’t play with female gamers,” says Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Twitch’s biggest streamer and one of the faces of the Fortnite fandom. This edict may be surprising to hear, especially as emphatically as Blevins said it when we spoke at a recent Samsung event.

Though Blevins isn’t shy about being married, and his more than 10 million subscribersinclude people of every gender identity, the internet’s love of gossip has convinced the Twitch star not to invite women to participate in his Fortnite Battle Royale livestreams. With fame comes scrutiny of every thing you say or do, he suggested, and that can sometimes lead to questions about who you’re sleeping or flirting with on the sly.

“If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we’re playing with one another, and even if there’s a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever,” Blevins told Polygon.

There’s some truth to idea that flirting can lead to YouTube clickbait and invasive questions — Blevins has asked some himself when playing with other well-known (male) streamers. Take the clip below, from a Twitch stream with Fortnite star Ali “Myth” Kabbani.

Imane “Pokimane” Anys is another big name on Twitch whose popularity grew rapidly over the last year, and when she started playing Fortnite on streams with Kabbani, viewers began to ask: Are they dating? Fans assume Twitch streamers are in a relationship just as often as they speculate on their marital status. And that apparently includes Blevins, who used his mega-platform to further perpetuate that rumor.

Whether or not it’s true that Anys and Kabbani are together is, obviously, their business. But when it comes to his relationship with streamer Jessica “Jghosty” Blevins, who often appears on her husband’s channel, Blevins is happy to open up about his devotion.

“[Not being connected to other women online,] that was something I made 100-percent sure,” he said. It was his decision alone to keep his streaming partners men-only. “That was not even her. She had nothing to do with it. That was me being, ‘I love our relationship,’ and, ‘No — I’m not even gonna put you through that.’”

A growing Twitch means a diminishing sense of privacy, especially for women on the platform. Female streamers have opened up before about the difficulty in maintaining a separation between their Twitch personas and who they are offline — often at the behest of viewers who demand answers, lest they assume what’s going on for themselves.

Respect is a major part of playing Fortnite and other games. Yet women often are the receiving end of anything but: “Twitch thots,” harassment, warding off obsessive or judgmental viewers are all serious concerns for well-known female streamers. In contrast to the reality of being a woman on Twitch, Blevins’ choice to draw a line feels like a conservative gesture — even a familiar, divisive one.

“There hasn’t been a single female gamer or streamer on Twitch or anything like that who’s been upset about that,” he said of possible pushback. “I honestly think that […] it’s just kinda like a respect thing.”

Ninja may not hear criticism of his decision, but similar gender-based views have received pushback in the political sphere — think of the outcry surrounding Vice President Mike Pence’s supposed marital boundaries. Still, the Twitch streamer is sticking to his absolute, which he believes is the only choice.

“The only way to avoid that [gossip] is to not play with them at all.”

Happy Fourth of July!

Not just that today is Independence Day which in other words Freedom. But look at the spiritual. Where ever you are in the world, you not be in the USA so July 4th isn’t anything to you. Well it can be, look at it as a day of freedom in Christ Jesus. We celebrate His birth (Christmas) & is Resurrection (Easter) so why not celebrate the freedom we have in Him.

Get It Through Your Head

fds

How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to Your word. I seek You with all my heart, do not let me stray from Your commands. I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against you…

With my lips I recount all the laws that come from Your mouth. I rejoice in following Your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on Your precepts and consider Your ways. I delight in Your decrees, I will not neglect Your word… Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge. In the night I remember Your name, O Lord, and I will keep your law.  …If Your law had not been  my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. I will never  forget Your precepts, for by them You have preserved my life. Save me, for I am Yours, I have sought out Your precepts. …Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and Your servant loves them. …Trouble and distress have come upon me, but Your commands are my delight. – Psalm 119:9-11, 13-16, 54-55, 92-94, 140 & 143.

Everybody thinks that memorizing Bible verses is too hard for them, too much trouble. Forget that.

original

You’re going to be memorizing something. Either it’s song lyrics, or Oscar nominations, or how many baskets Stephen Curry makes this season. You’re going to be paying enough attention to some interesting aspect of life that the minutest details will become common knowledge to you.

Know what, though? This time next year, you’ll have a hard time remembering who even played in the last 3 Super Bowls, though at the time they seemed so important. You’ll forget who your state senator beat in the previous election, though at the time you devoured every article on the race. You’ll lose track of the TV story line that used to keep you awake nights trying to figure out what was going to happen next week.

“But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” – John 14:26

If, instead of filling your mind with forgettable facts, you load up on the words of life, you place within constant retrieval the right word for every situation.

“One of the primary reasons for studying the Bible is to provide Him with the Word to bring to our remembrance- when we need it” – Evelyn Christenson

Don’t just read the Bible, Study it! There’s a difference.

 

Next up:

Right along with letting the Bible become a staple in your daily diet, prayer will open your life to ongoing fellowship with God. And keep you going all day long.

Happy Father’s Day

To all the fathers, father figures, mentors & even future fathers. Happy Father’s Day! But remember, God is our Father in Heaven. We encourage to spend at least 30 minutes or more with Jesus today. If you have a father, call him up & bless him. If you don’t talk to your father for any reason. We encourage you to change & call your father & tell him sorry & that you love him.
