Clothing and nudity has always been a controversial topic for Twitch.tv, with its policies and Terms of Service (TOS) acting as strict rules to follow, lest a streamer wants their account to be banned or reported. However, the website''s Nudity Policy has always been unfair to certain groups of streamers, especially as it''s unforgiving of different body types and mostly targeted at clothing. Furthermore, the Nudity and Attire policy has long lacked clarity regarding what is OK to wear in streams but a revision to Twitch''s TOS aims to change that.With the revision, Twitch hopes to lessen the gender disparity in its Nudity and Attire Policy, as well as lessen confusion and create a fairer streaming platform for all. This is a positive step forward to make the platform safer, more professional, and fair for streamers and viewers especially younger viewers. The platform also promises to keep revising the policy as needed for its ever growing community.

xQc Felix lsquo;xQc ' Lengyel has apologized to his fans as the Twitch streamer ''s appeal for his February 29 nudity and adult content ban was unsuccessful, keeping the French Canadian off the platform for another couple of days.
There has even been a trend going on named "unbanxQc" in hopes of reaching Twitch and pressuring them to bring back the famous Overwatch star. This has been quite a topic of controversy since other streamers are able to show nudity but have gone unpunished, but when xQc did this stint, he received the full wrath of Twitch. This move, according to fans and xQc himself, is unfair, and it seems like Twitch is selective with the people they ban from their community instead of offering a fair platform for all.The problem with this move by Twitch is that it is unfair for other games such as Witcher 3, which even includes full frontal nudity, and even xQc himself has been able to play this game without even being punished despite the visual obscurity. Other streams include nude body painting, which is right on the line of both suggestive content, and artistic material has also been a topic being raised since there is no clear definition between the two.

These streamers are the bane of Twitch s existence and have no place on a gaming platform, especially one fraught with children. Twitch does nothing about them, and they are easily found just by hitting Discover. The particular stream in question did not feature any intentional nudity or sexuality, however. Macaiyla has been known for this behavior, and shamelessly too. A simple Google search reveals a huge history of toxic content, even positing that she should Bomb Twitch Con. It is fitting that she s with the most toxic man in the world, Tyler1. The funny part about all of this was that she was banned for the bomb threat, yet here she is working around it. Twitch guidelines do mention that circumventing a ban is grounds for yet another ban, but here we stand. Twitch may be the most lax streaming platform out there, and it is absolutely for the worst. Maybe she appealed, but we don t know. These kinds of things need to be kept in check, especially with children on the platform. Please, Twitch, enforce your rules with some kind of regularity.
