    What bothers me is when people say that they’re not feminists because of this bs, instead of saying that the bs is not true feminism. Calling yourself not a feminism is just sad

    I agree with most of what you said, including how the popularity of feminism means that now it encompasses so many different points of view but... A lot of the garbage within feminism is coming from academia and critical theory, then it trickles to society at large. You cannot brush over that.
    P. S. Although I often disagree with you, I hate that the cancel culture mob has come for you. You are possibly the most creative youtuber I know after ze frank

    I love "props for saying ugly girls instead of saying 'everyone is beautiful' unfortunately that idea still finds its way into a lot of good feminist activism even when we're appropriately criticising white patriarchal beauty standards, "everyone is beautiful" is still a pretty gaslighty endgame

    feminism is the empowerment of women so as to balance the disempowerment of patriarchy. education, autonomy and equality - and the vote, ownership of property and personal liberty. feminism is neither dead nor irrelevant... but there seem to be many who stretch the concept way to far in various directions, diluting and obfuscating the fundamental need for feminist concepts to be applied, still.

    Just to critique something at 1:40, it’s not that everyone’s jumping on the feminism bandwagon, it’s that feminism is claiming a monopoly on equality and suddenly anyone who wishes to refer to themselves as ‘egalitarian’ rather than ‘feminist’ is in the wrong.

    Tears are powerful only when drunk republicans cries publicly over their alleged boot straps success when they retire into a a bottle of stupor,
    Or can't have their license to kill anymore
    When they lose twitter followers
    Or blames everyone else for their misery
    Specially brown people or someone not in their cult

    Anyone remember John Bohner?
    I hear he's had his drunken Chernobyl,
    And went for weed
    In a state of greed
    On the legalized Devil's seed
    He turned into a stoner
    To repair his shrinking brain
    And growing liver

    We, the bleeding heart libs
    Applaud the masquerade
    Of contrived Machismo
    of whining ammosexuals
    and flag grabbing fetishists
    With daddy issues.
    You all remind me of Justin Bieber

    Where's the love, honey? Thinking that almost everything in our lives is trash is kinda like the opposite to making ourselves to love others, to understand their love for stuff we don't like, to put ourselves in their shoes. As one of your latest videos said, we need to be more empathetic and try to stop thinking that almost everything is trash and shit.

    Italo Calvino wrote "... seek and learn to recognize who and what, in the midst of inferno, are not inferno, then make them endure, give them space."
    Contrapoints does this so well. These videos are among my favorite pieces of not-inferno right now.

    I agree with the idea of turning men into women :D I'm a very feminine bisexual feminist and I simply love the natural beauty of being a woman exudes. That's one big reason why when it comes to sexuality, I'd rather be with a transgender woman than a transgender man.

    The fact that earth is 95% shit is so extremely depressing. Its not inaccurate at all. most of Earth is molten lava, and then a small percentage of matter that exists on our planet actually exists in the livable parts, but then, of those livable parts there's another small percentage of space the we humans can actually live on! But then, its an even smaller percentage of living space that we as individuals can actually relate to and be a part of a small community. Oh well, i guess i can always go make youtube videos if I get depressed enough.
