Actually I never said a woman in a bikini is pr0n. What I was saying was the act of splashing water on herself and some of the other things these bimbo's do to make it look like something that it isn't, looks to me like it is a pr0n scene.
Where does it say that she splashes water on herself? All it says is that she's in a jacuzzi and chats from there. I went back to see the original picture and... she's dry up top. I checked the article again and nowhere does it describe what you just said. Is there another source for this information (like have you personally seen her do it or another article about this that says she does) or are you just making up this idea that she splashes water on herself?
I mean lets be honest here. If they could get away with stripping off on the camera for money they would and if they could get away with more raunch then they would.
They'd also be on Chaturbate because that kind of behaviour wouldn't last a day on Twitch. It's not worth doing something so unsustainable.
Make no mistake. They know what they are trying to portray and to think otherwise is insulting an intelligent persons intelligence and I still believe this kind of behavior shouldn't be permitted on Twitch.
Regardless of what you read into it, she has never crossed the line into what is considered "adult content" under the laws of non-authoritarian countries. What's next, if a woman is sunbathing in a bikini and has her legs not completely together, we're going to accuse her of portraying something as well? I mean, I'm sure that some of them do (especially in my hometown of Montreal), but I would never go so far as to make a fuss over it because I don't write the laws in Canada and more importantly, because I don't accuse people of thing based on assumptions. That's a great way to get sued and rightfully so.
I am no prude so to speak. I am just saying there are other places on the internet in which they can behave like this. So in my opinion they should go there and leave Twitch to the serious streamers.
Ok... I'll bite. Which other places specialise in women streaming live in bikinis that aren't full-blown stripper sites?

I completely agree that it doesn't change the validity, but it does render it irrelevant. We're not discussing soft porn here, we're discussing a woman
in a bikini.
It does not, because my point was about how this woman in a bikini is directly competing with what used to be the reason that Twitch exists in the first place: gameplay content. Just because what she does is not specifically "porn" or "soft porn", it is certainly intentionally sexually provocative in order to get attention. You are simply arguing about what we call it, I'm talking about the effect and real world implications of their actions (which is relevant), regardless of what label we give it (which is not particularly relevant).

Twitch is not just for gaming. There are several YouTubers who also post videos on Twitch that cover politics and science. Should they also be removed? Should The Rational National be banned from Twitch? How about Joe Scott? Maybe The Young Turks?

If you want to ban everything that isn't gaming, then alright, your point is valid and relevant. If not, then it isn't because it means that you just don't like women in bikinis chatting online from a Jacuzzi and that isn't valid.

I don't neccesarily think anything should be banned. Just don't pretend that something is not sexually provocative (which is prohibited on Twitch according to it's own guidelines) when it clearly is. If they want to have an "adult" category I'm fine with that.
I don't think discussing science and politics is in any way comparable to hot tub streamers. Again, one is using overt, intentional sexual provocation to get attention, the other is not. Unless I missed Cenk Uygur presenting the Young Turks in a bikini (if I did, thank god).

I never said that it wasn't sexually provocative and I never pretended that it was so what exactly are you imagining? Go back and read every post I've made and you'll find nothing of the sort. How you got something so stupid in your head as me saying that it's not sexually provocative is completely beyond me.

Yes it's sexually provocative, so is a low-cut top, so are ultra low-rise jeans, so are high-heeled shoes. The fact is that you think it's ok to force your "personal standards" on everyone even though what you're attacking is perfectly legal in EVERY country that isn't an authoritarian state (and even some that are).

I'm sorry that this violates your personal Victorian sensibilities, especially since you're not also arguing to ban live streaming of DOOM because of how horrifically graphic it is. Protect the kiddies from titties but not watching a creature being cut in half with a chainsaw, eh? Ridiculous.

Ok, I didn't meant to imply that YOU said that. But it was argued by some of the streamers in question.
