Hunter Avallone (b. November 11, 1996) is a formerly Christian conservative blogger and YouTube commentator turned atheist. He is best known for his video "The Truth About Transgenders[sic]";[1] and his video-responses to various liberal YouTube commentators.

Views on LGBT groups[edit]

Avallone gained national recognition with his video "The Truth about Transgenders". As of 21 September 2016, it had over 390,000 views. Several LGBT websites criticized his transphobia.[2][3] In the video, he quotes professor Paul R. McHughWikipedia's W.svg, a prominent opponent of sex transition surgery,[4] despite the fact that much of the research McHugh references is outdated or misrepresented.[5][6]

Avallone's video on the Target bathroom boycott has also gained notoriety. Avallone claims that allowing transgender individuals to use the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity affects the rights of others, and will risk the safety of children. However, he clarified that he doesn't hate transgender groups, and believes that "they should have equality and equal rights just like everyone else".[7]

In a podcast, he stated that he initially believed that same-sex marriage was a sin, but changed his mind about it.[8]

Political views[edit]

Hunter Avallone supported Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election.[9] He is pro-life,[10] and supports moderate gun control.[11]

On June 25th 2017, Avallone expressed his intention to attend a "Freedom of Speech Rally" being held the next day in Washington DC, which featured Alt-Right leader and white nationalist Richard Spencer as the headlining speaker.[12]

Creationism[edit]

Back in the day, he used to make creationist videos, which sometimes resulted in Jaclyn Glenn making response videos. However, in a video about fat-shaming, he made an evolutionary argument as to why fat people are overall less attractive, implying that he has dropped his creationist beliefs.

Atheism[edit]

Per June 11th of 2017: Hunter made an Instagram post, announcing that he's no longer religiously affiliated.[13] A month later, he announced on Facebook that he is an atheist.
