The video contains no inappropriate content, yet has been age restricted

As the row over how much control YouTube has over it's own platform continues, the site has made yet another inexplicable move.

YouTube has age restricted the Senate campaign video of activist Chelsea Manning, despite the video featuring no sensitive footage and not violating a single one of the site's terms of service. Seriously, the video is just Chelsea walking and talking.

Restricting a harmful video from one of the world's most well known trans figures will do little to assuage fears that YouTube has a problem with LGBTQ+ content.
