I mean if you really believe that analogy is even remotely close to accurate than i dont feel like exerting the energy to explain why youre wrong because its quite obvious youve already made up your mind.

youtube is a perfect example, since you brought it up

popularity is somewhat arbitrary and practically all revenue goes to a very small number of uploaders

I guess I'd be interested in seeing the exact numbers but afaik it's an incredibly small amount of uploaders that even make a return large enough to replace having a job

this is without considering which percentage of those that upload content are not doing a job like any other whereby they upload by the demand of their viewers rather than any implicit individuality

lottery ticket is in fact an apt analogy

women don’t care much about a man’s bald spot so it’s uniquely a male bitch move calling out a dude for losing his hair

take that to your pc gender bank

Your idea of individuality seems to parallel the argument people make against sandbox video games that constrain them to hardcoded mechanics. Yes minecraft has sheep, no sorry you cant stick your dick in them.

Existing requires doing things we dont want to do to continue existing. That doesnt make you a sellout or a whore. Innerspaceboy would not lose his individuality purchasing a mainsream product he happened to like.
