You know that classic sitcom story where a character gets obsessed with being part of a group and becomes a poser of sort for it in record time (Since, sitcom, gotta get back to the starting point within 30 minutes), hamming it up and putting it at the forefront of their identity despite obviously lacking the experience/knowledge to really back all of that up ? Obviously in those sitcoms the character inevitably goes back to normal, usually after some colossal blunder, but let's keep it about that sudden poser-ness - for now.

Jim's "me and my people" really makes me think of that, 'cause, reminder, it's not even been a year, if I'm following the timeline of events; In some countries, that's not even enough to qualify for many transgender procedures (Name change, surgeries - sometimes even hormones if they're not the Land of the Free). And on top of that he's a pretty damned privileged person, both financially and socially; He's definitely not one of those transgender prostitutes who regularly get stabbed.

Point being for someone talking about "muh people", he barely even belongs to that people in the first place (For now, admittedly, that could change) and certainly cannot possibly represent it with such a tiny, limited experience, which on top of that really doesn't include the worst aspects of it.

Reminds me of those early teenage LGBT kids who just came out as whatever-the-fuck, so the first things they do is lord their new identities to everyone around them and show how "in" they are by over-representing the LGBT community.

No one likes those kinds of people. No one wants someone whose come out as gay/lesbian/trans come at them at 100 miles per hour because they see it as being so cool to them. They forget that the people around them (especially loved ones) need time to process the change and become more accepting of it. Jim pulling this shit just looks like he's trying to hard.

You trooned out, Jim. Congrats to you, or whatever. Now shut the fuck up.

His arms also look super thin. Think he's still crash dieting?
The wife just took one look at the thumbnail on @Neko GF's archive video and asked me "did he start calling himself female because he wanted to lose weight and needed to get ahead of the saggy manboob jokes?".

I laughed, but she may be on to something.

I've just noticed he's gone back to the old format. Completely. Single issue for the video, no cutaways to incongruent 90s adverts. The overall message is 'Don't waste your money on this shit, Nintendo is not your friend'. I agree. He did roll into 'muh billionaires' for a moment but otherwise, yeah don't put microtransactions into games for children.

How has he managed to improve like this so quickly?

Oh christ she made a good point, Jim's crash dieting is gonna result in a lot of excess skin sagging, and that's going to be uncomfortable as fuck until he gets it surgically removed. Also, how is his face still so fat and old looking? Honestly if he'd kept a bit of the weight he could've gone for the overly harsh boarding school principal look at least.

The time to complain about Pokemon Company and Nintendo ruining that franchise was back when you were calling the fans upset with Dexit, obsessive nerds who needed to move on, when it was clear Sword and Shield was being released as an obvious Wii U era tech demo.

So, uh, enjoy your continued shitty Pokemon franchise you dumb faggots. Its for kids, right?

Not to say he isn't visibly thinner by quite the margin, but I suspect part of the "thin arms" effect might be the sheer size of his hands.

No, seriously, look at this, compare the size of his hand to that of his head - which is already probably wider than most because there's still some fat in there.

I can concede some possible camera trickery with some short focal length and his hand being closer, but this hand still registers as huge to me.

And between that and the "Is he really somehow even bigger than 6'1 ?" thing, he really looks to be a damn ogre.

Because he seems to be coming out of a manic episode that was likely prolonged by Twitter asspats. I’ll admit I haven’t watched the video, but his sudden urge to tone everything down is often what happens when someone breaks free of mania and is forced to reckon with everything they’ve ruined. In his case, a nigh-unwatchable jimquisition and bleeding sub count.

He can’t walk everything back, of course, and he may not even want to. Once you’re in bed with the troon cult leaving makes you an enemy. But I’m not surprised he’s trying a return to form, at least as much as he can.

If he managed to get in shape and stay healthy years (decades) ago he probably could have been an athlete or an actually respected professional wrestler or some shit with his build and height. Instead we get this.

I have a much more cynical take: He realised, despite his posturing about 'muh transphobia' that all his histrionic bullshit that had nothing to do with games and the unfunny skits were what was actually killing his channel, so he's going back to format.

And it's working: His sub bleed has slowed significantly with the last few JQs that have been much more like 'classic' Jim content, even though the topics are the same overplayed bullshit he's been retreading for years. I don't think it's going to drive his subs back up, but it will probably stem the bleed for the foreseeable future. I also don't think he'll drop the troon schtick: I think most people just listen to stuff like the Jimquisition in the background; there's very rarely any vital info conveyed visually so you can easily ignore Jim's clown get-up.

Although I've noticed he seems to be appearing less frequently in recent videos anyway --from what I've seen it's just the intro and outro now-- so he even seems to be dialling back his visual presence.

And with that, Jim has another thing in common with large corporations. Selling pandering LGBTQ merch for massive markups.
18 dollars for a shirt isn't much of a mark-up tbh.
These are horrific though:
