I know this may be hard to believe but a recent study conducted by researchers at Indiana University found that people act different towards female booby streamers compared to male streamers. Whoddathunkit?

The difference was starkest between popular women’s and men’s Twitch channels. In those channels, viewers spam words like "boobs," "pussy," "hot," "cute" and "smile," which if you are a person who has ever been on the website, might not give you cardiac arrest or anything. Asked about his findings, one author of the study, Giovanni Ciampaglia, told VICE Motherboard "Viewers on women’s stream spoke in more objectifying terms. . . which confirms that anecdotal evidence."
