Like the only reason they even have the so-called kids content in the first place is because careless idiot parents just plop their babies on tablets all day.They're legitimately between a rock and a hard place with the "kids" content. It's pretty fucked that a website that requires users to be over age 13 is still held legally responsible for kids sneaking onto their service. Nobody under 13 should be let loose on the internet, Jesus fuck. Indulging these people will just gut the internet even more.
Maybe if they restricted the age limit to 13 and above, or if these also so-called adults didn't go around being careless with their kids, this shit wouldn't be happening in the first place. Or at least not to this same extreme.
While I can't say for sure what'll happen in the short term, this is definitely going to bite their collective asses in the long term because this always affects them just as much as it does the YouTubers and (eventually) the advertisers the site attempts to pander to.
