When the left sends their trannies they're not sending their best.
—Blaire White, who thinks the Left is somewhere in Mexico[1]

Blaire White (September 14, 1993–) is a YouTube talker who self-identifies as a "transgender conservative commentator".[2] In her own words, White "create[s] videos making fun of ideologues and cultural marxism".[3] In practice, White's videos either attack "SJW" YouTubers or defend antifeminist talking points or rightist positions on trans issues. In short: Blaire White is the Milo Yiannopoulos of trans issues.

As of January 4th 2018, White's YouTube channel had over 366k subscribers and 36.7m views.[3] In contrast, her website had virtually no traffic.[4][5]

Trans issues[edit]

Pseudoscience[edit]

I lost subscribers today for saying that children shouldn't be sterilized. Imagine that.
—Blaire White, discussing trans children[6]

White is a trans woman undergoing transition. As a result, her views on GSM issues often get extra respect despite being contradicted by science. Indeed, White routinely holds views contrary to those of scientific professionals on trans issues:

  • Mental disorder: White asserts that "transgenderism is a mental disorder,"[7] which is false according to the American Psychological Association,[8] American Psychiatric Association,[9] and the World Health Organization.[10][11]
  • Transitioning: In the same video, she states her belief that transitioning is a "faulty" response to gender dysphoria and "not for everyone", and that there should be a "cure for transgenderism", which is again denied by the American Psychological Association.[12]
  • Gender binary: White firmly believes that there are only two genders[13][14] and calls non-binary gender identities "trans-retarded".[15] This has no basis in any academic field of study, whether you want to look at biology, psychiatry,[note 1] or anthropology.Wikipedia's W.svg There is no definition of gender under which it is true. It is first-grade bullshit that merely appeals to the worldview of right-wingers in the United States.
  • Childhood transition: Ironically for someone who denounces "transtrenders," a term that is usually a snarl word for people who reject transmedicalism, White believes that childhood transition is literally "child abuse".[16] Replace transgender with any other medical condition and the contradiction becomes obvious; this is, however, resolved when you view her not as making reasonable arguments but as pandering to a conservative audience that is looking for every pseudo-rational reason to justify their transphobia. Also, despite grabbing her a lot of attention the term "child abuse" for childhood transition is, again, rejected by the American Psychological Association, which extensively discusses trans youth, though it does conclude "consensus does not exist regarding best practice with prepubertal children." [8] In addition, trans YouTuber Zinnia Jones has two citation-heavy response blogs.[17][18]
  • Politics: White also believes that "the left is fighting a fight transgender people don’t want",[19] apparently unaware of modern polling.[note 2]

Bigotry[edit]

Respect is earned, and the transgender community does very little in the public eye that deserves respect.[20]

White "doesn't like the LGBT community".[21] In her video series "Triggering Trannies" (later renamed to "Upset Trans People"[22]) White freely admits that the LGBT community opposes her views, though she blows it off as "just the SJW branch".[23][24][25] Fittingly, White also holds numerous views that appear to be based not on reason but bigotry:

  • White only supports straight trans women (i.e. those attracted exclusively to men). She believes that trans lesbians are really just straight men, taking the liberty to call one "he" and "heterosexual." Despite (at the time) being a non-op herself, Blaire criticizes said lesbian for still having a penis.[26]
  • White thinks that trans women who don't pass shouldn't use the bathroom of their preferred gender.[27]
  • White doesn't care much about preferred pronouns, referring to it as "policing someone's behavior" and "being sensitive".[28]
  • White describes the label "queer" as "brainwashing children".[29]

In short: White is against youth transition and simultaneously makes fun of people for not passing. She has also "not bullied" several specific leftist trans YouTubers:

  • White dedicates five videos solely to attacking Riley Dennis, a trans female YouTuber.[30][31][32][33][34] She also misgenders Dennis,[26][35][36][37] perhaps because she doesn't think Dennis is truly trans.[38] However, she has since apologized for said misgendering, when Riley Dennis revealed that she had been receiving hormones and laser hair removal.[39]
  • White writes that "I DONT WANT TO BE A BULLY but Milo Stewart is actually transitioning into a lawn gnome now, as I predicted. :X [image of Milo Stewart as lawn gnome]"[40]

Gender issues[edit]

So now that we're all in agreement that feminism is indeed cancer, let's look at the ways feminism is like a virus.
—Blaire White, prominent biologist[41]
I can't explain why I don't need feminism, I'm too busy prospering without it. 💋
—Blaire White, cringe queen[42]

White is an antifeminist.[43][44] White frequently creates clickbait content of the "REKT FEMINIST" type.[30][32][33][45][46]

  • White thinks rape culture doesn't exist.[47] Fittingly, she describes the feminist view of rape as follows:[48]
Rape: Anything. No, seriously, like, they've butchered the definition so bad anything can be rape now.
The wage gap is in great part due to women taking more time off than men.
What will the Women's March do to help? They'll refuse to go to work. Amazing.
  • White believes female privilege exists and is a strong argument for antifeminism.[43]

In short: White is indistinguishable from your typical YouTube "anti-SJW" clickbait producer.

Other stances[edit]

I recently tried a tanning lotion out and I really regret it, it's not a good look. But on the bright side, I'm only a cornrowsWikipedia's W.svg away from being able to demand reparations from you guys.[51]
I tried on self tanner that I mistook for lotion in the store and my left hand has been African American for the past 4 days.[52]

General nuttery[edit]

Clickbaiter[edit]

I'm not "throwing shade", I'm simply proud that I sustain myself without selling my body unlike most trans women. It's sad.[74]

White's videos have typical clickbait features. For example, many of her video titles are full of ALL-CAPS, playground insults, or political buzzwords:

  • "Triggering Trannies" (Pt. 1,[23] Pt. 2[24], Pt. 3[25])
  • "The Worst SJW Yet: Brainwashing Children"[29]
  • "RILEY DENNIS KEEPS GETTING DUMBER"[30]
  • "WORST RILEY DENNIS FAIL SO FAR"[32]
  • "The Dumbest Riley Dennis Video So Far"[33]
  • "Sensitive Tranny Thinks Words Are Violent"[34]
  • "Feminism: The Biggest Joke (Women's March)"[45]
  • "My Feminist Roommate Attacked Me"[46]
  • "Triggered to Death By Milo Yiannopoulos"[75]

Worth noting is that virtually all of White's social media profiles and video thumbnails prominently feature her cleavage. This tactic may be aimed at her mostly-male audience.[76]

Useful idiot[edit]

"Look! We have Milo! HE MARRIED A BLACK GUY! And Blaire, she's trans! We can't possibly be racist, or homophobic, or transphobic! WE WIN!"
Destiny[77]

White has been interviewed by far-right individuals such as Alex Jones,[78] Paul Elam,[79] Paul Joseph Watson,[80] and Steven Crowder.[81]

Fake news[edit]

In December 2017, White unironically tweeted a screenshot of a fake news article from neonnettle.com with the headline "Eminem: Being White is So Embarrassing, I Want To Kill Myself", commenting "Being white isn't embarrassing, but white guilt sure the fuck is."[82]

Transphobia[edit]

White has herself been the victim of transphobia. For example, YouTuber No Bullshit described her as a "ditzy" "valley girl" because of her transgender identity.[83]

Notes[edit]

  1. See, for example, the DSM-V definitions of gender dysphoria in both children (302.6) and adults (302.85), which merely require that a person have a strong desire to be "some alternative gender different from one's assigned gender" to qualify as having gender dysphoria.
  2. The 2015 National Transgender Discrimination Survey showed that seventy-nine percent lean Democrat, fifty percent identify as Democrats, and only two percent identify as Republicans. The most popular independent affiliations for transgender people were socialist, social democrat, and Green Party.
