    The video of her(/his/its?) cringiest moments is cringy itself.

    But I do find myself in agreement with some of the stuff she says:
    - Communist (good on you! But I doubt she knows what it actually means or implies...)
    - All cis-genders are transphobic, all whites are racist (I don't totally agree, but many more people are -phobic than would admit it, especially in the States, where her accent suggests that she is from)

    I couldn't watch much further than that, because I knocked myself out with my facepalm.

    I think it's a mistake to react at all to Youtubers, unless you directly support them. It's their lifeblood both financially and conceptually.

    Even by sharing them to criticise them, you're indirectly helping their cause.

    Just like the really inane nonsense ones like Zoola or Alfred Days - they just drone on day after day, regardless of how many people love/hate them.

    I think calling people like this out helps to quash the SJW cause overall though.

    I used to think that - but I don't really anymore.

    I personally think that a lot of these issues are predetermined. It's not a "tough" argument like gay marriage or grammar schools- it's something that I think you are either for or against and nothing is going to change your mind on it. Not unlike Israel/Palestine or Class War.

    From this point of view, all you're really doing by "calling out" such people is publicising them, and in a sense funding them - regardless of how you think you might be discrediting them in the process.

    Hmm, I dunno, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the girl in video changed her mind in years to come. To me it seems more like a religious belief. Given that it isn't based on reason or evidence, one has to make a leapnof faith. It's really common for people her age to get led into believing crap like this. Some maintain their beliefs, but plenty of them get real when they get older.
