The Tea On Shane Dawson's New Series

Here's the latest on Shane's new Documentary 'The Mind of Jake Paul'.

The Tea On Shane Dawson's New Series

Unless you live under a rock, you have seen the current controversy of Shane Dawson's new series on Jake Paul as well as the rest of the Paul family. In case you haven't, I'll give you some background information.

Jake Paul and Logan Paul are two famous brothers who got their start on an app called Vine. When Vine shut down, their content moved to Youtube, and this is where things kinda took a turn. Over the past few years, both the Paul brothers have been involved in major controversies and scandals. The most famous controversy, including Logan Paul, was Logan creating a YouTube video showing a dead body him and his friends inside of the Suicide Forest, and well, making the whole thing a joke.

Since the start, the Paul brothers have made many apology videos, have been in the news, have both been involved in boxing matches, the list goes on. Overall, everyone has questioned the general mental state of the brothers and the Paul's in general. This is where Shane Dawson comes in. Shane Dawson decided to make an 8 part series documentary on his Youtube channel answering the main question everyone is asking:

What is going through the Paul brother's heads?

So far, when writing this, the full series has not yet been released but a few parts have so far. However, not even halfway through, and the videos have gotten an endless response from people including the Paul brothers.

In the first video, Shane spends around 40 minutes setting up the entirety of the series. The video talks about why Shane decides to take up this project as well as his intentions coming out of it. We hear Jake agree to the video, feeling as though the only person who can make this video fairly would be Shane Dawson himself. Shane talks about wanting to genuinely get to the bottoms of what the Paul brother's lives are about and how much is real and how much is all for the camera.

In the second video, Shane sits down with therapist Kati Morton to talk about and discuss terms surrounding Jake Paul and his brother. The two focus on one specific term that they hint the Paul brothers being associated with. This term is Sociopath.

In the video, they describe Sociopath as someone lacking empathy, meaning they do not understand feelings or experience any emotions. They explore the idea of needing to be a sociopath to be a Youtube personal. They dive in further detail about this topic, but that's something I'll let you watch on your own because this definitely a series everyone should check out.

While more parts have been released, these two parts in specific, and arguably the third, created a lot of controversy and response from everyone from fans to Logan Paul, who actually made a video response about the series.

Logan Paul, along with many other views talk about how insensitive it is to claim Jake is a sociopath and to label individuals as either a sociopath or not. Watching multiple reaction videos from fans and Logan, I have to say I do not agree with what Logan is saying.

In the past, the brothers have done a series of very cruel and dangerous actions that have overall affected the lives of many many other people. These people include Alissa Violet, citizens of Japan, individuals dealing with mental illness involving suicide, and many more. So why is it 'okay' for the brothers do hurt so many people but it's not okay for Shane to bring light to it?

Shane has gotten a lot of backlash from his series, calling him insensitive and many other names when Shane is just trying to explain why these brothers do what they do. In a way, it's almost saying, 'These brothers have REALLY messed up, here's why they can't really help it'.

So, my overall opinion on the matter is that Shane is creating this series about two famous brothers in the YouTube world who have upset countless amount of people and bringing light to why the Paul brothers are the way they are.

So, stop hating Shane for small things and start listening to what Dawson has to say for the big picture.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

The Ultimate Guide To Being A Latinx And Hispanic Community Ally

Educate and celebrate their culture to lift the community up.


It's well known that the Gen-Z and millennial generations are more passionate about social justice and conscious about their decisions as consumers as any other generation to come before us.

For these generations, making mindful decisions about where we like to allocate our money, who we choose to follow on Instagram, and even the books we like to read are extremely important to us. With the rise of the digital age, we are constantly consuming media and content, and so there's no longer an excuse for being uneducated if we want to be educated on a wide range of cultures.

It was a day we all knew would possibly come but hoped it never would. The day the outbreak hit.

I remember, back in March, I was just about to return home from a socially distanced vacation in my Florida home with my mom and grandpa, when my dad called to tell us he was feeling sick. At the time, President Trump hadn't closed the borders, my school was still going back after Easter, and sheer panic hadn't yet flooded our news outlets. We were meant to return home on Saturday, but when the borders closed on Thursday, things got a little more serious.
