The popular streamer Pokimane recently spoke out against hating on “simps,” noting that doing so tends to reinforce a culture of misogyny and sexism.

The content creator described how the negative connotation associated with the term has led many of her friends and followers to hold back from defending her in the face of what often amounts to uncalled for criticism.

This comes in the context of a ban from Twitch affecting a user on the platform who apparently was going through a “simp hunting phase.” Twitch banned the term back in 2020, claiming the rule would only be enforced if the term was used to insult or otherwise attack another user.

In this particular case, the banned user was clearly being pejorative, attracting a lot of ire from Pokimane. RELATED: Interview: How Jessica Blevins Turned Ninja Into A Professional Brand “Isn’t it weird young boys are being told simping is so terrible?
