Is she a Trump supporter?[edit]

When I was looking through her stuff, I saw that the little she brings him up, she's talking out both sides of her face, but seems to be supporting him overall. I know that we can't do anything with her silence on Mike Pence (despite claiming pro-LGBT) because of the lack of evidence, but is there enough to work with on her Trump double speak, of should we sit on that for a while?— Unsigned, by: SonataBlack / talk / contribs


"As of January 4th 2018, White's YouTube channel had over 366k subscribers and 36.7m views.[3] By contrast, her website had virtually no traffic.[4][5]" Sometimes I forget just how awesomely petty and vindictive you people are, and it just makes me smile... Do you guys seriously still consider this website to be anything other than the far-left's answer to conservapedia anymore? It's like you actually think having a left-wing circle jerk is synonymous with reason... — Unsigned, by: 67.193.133.228 / talk

Blaire White tweets fake news[edit]

Being white isn't embarrassing, but white guilt sure the fuck is.[a w] Herr FuzzyKatzenPotato (talk/stalk) 19:28, 21 December 2017 (UTC)

Transphobia section[edit]

I don't really get why it's relevant that White has been the victim of transphobia. That's normal for every trans person. What isn't normal is her contribution to transphobia. I'm trans, I've been a victim of plenty of transphobia, and I still don't feel the need to harm the rest of society because of it. It sounds like your typical sociopath complaining about what a difficult life they've had. Cat A. Lonia (talk) 20:19, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

To clarify, were White merely a victim of transphobia, she would not have an article on RationalWiki. She is notable for her contribution to transphobia. Cat A. Lonia (talk) 20:20, 4 April 2018 (UTC)

You have a point. Maybe we should revise that section to say that no matter how horrible one particular trans person is, it's never okay to be transphobic. —ClickerClock (talk) 03:51, 5 April 2018 (UTC)
I just made an addition to that section somewhat along those lines. Feel free to revise of course.--Yisfidri (talk) 13:26, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Calling someone a "ditzy girl" is an example of sexism/misogny, not transphobia/transmisogyny/cissexism. That is an attack on her gender not specifically on the fact that she is transgender. What I think could be relevant about that particular source is the fact that the commentator says "girl" with the little pause before it and intonation people use when doing scare quotes.115.189.93.167 (talk) 00:08, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Suicide(?)[edit]

Blaire White has just deleted her account and her last tweet was talking about killing herself. https://mobile.twitter.com/Dashiell_Qwerty/status/1016561546032377856 LuodiWang (talk) 18:58, 10 July 2018 (UTC)

Oh... we have to wait and see if she really did follow through or not. Does anyone know any of her friends/acquaintances? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:02, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Joey Sarson is her fiancé. Shoe0nHead is one of her closest friends. Shane Dawson is another one of her close friends. Onision has recently befriended Blaire White. Eden the Doll has also become friends with Blaire White. LuodiWang (talk) 19:04, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Okay, we'll see what they'll have to say about Blaire White. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:07, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Is there any way we can contact them through Twitter? LuodiWang (talk) 19:11, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Errr, I don't know, that's the thing. I was expecting other people to ask eventually, though. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:12, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
What about DMs? LuodiWang (talk) 19:15, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Btw, Jaclyn Glenn is also friends with Blaire. LuodiWang (talk) 19:17, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
I have just tried contacting Joey Sarson. https://mobile.twitter.com/TheProgressiv15/status/1016797673351974913 He hasn’t responded yet. LuodiWang (talk) 21:43, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
One person responded that "@shoe0nhead said that she's fine and she's taking a break. I am so happy she's okay." --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 23:31, 10 July 2018 (UTC)
Oh, ok. I think I might have overreacted a bit. LuodiWang (talk) 00:39, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Blaire White's latest video[edit]

Does anybody know which people Blaire White was talking about in her latest video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7Ft2E_ibxQ LuodiWang (talk) 22:45, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

Blackface[edit]

Blaire White is now trying to argue that her use of blackface was not racist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNG3IQ2HSXw LuodiWang (talk) 19:12, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Because it wasn’t? That’s not blackface nor is it racist... that’s a fucking facial mask. That’s why it doesn’t get near her eyes. I get you guys are obsessed with her but damn. This is a bit much no? Reading this page has me laughing. Like one person actually wanted the fact that she was attacked for being trans removed from the page because heaven forbid someone you dislike gets viewed with pity. This shit is like Kiwifarms for lefties. It’s sad.TheBigPompa (talk) 21:48, 5 April 2019 (UTC)
Concern Troll — Unsigned, by: CogitoNotStirred / talk / contribs

@CogitoNotStirred It's a facemask on a post that references Black Lives Matter... Are you actually so daft as to not understand that the context of wearing a black facemask becomes racial when it's posted in reference to a racial topic...? BoomerButter (talk) 03:14, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

It's not me you ought to be pinging here. Read the thread a little more carefully, please. The concern troll is TheBigPompa. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 03:29, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

Not alt-right[edit]

Merely associating with those on the alt-right doesn't make Blaire White alt-right. Her views are more moderate than people such as Lauren Southern, Ben Shapiro, and Tim Pool, and since they are only consider alt-lite, I don't see why it's correct to label White as alt-right.YXTQWFclimbTheStairs 01:32, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

"Alt-lite" is just the more polished and "respectable" version of the alt-right. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 02:19, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
This is not guilt by association, Stairs. A YouTuber known for transphobic, homophobic, misogynistic, racist, and genocidal comments is "alt-right." CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 02:52, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
Not necessarily. Other conservatives a lot farther to the right of Blaire White aren't considered "alt-right" on RationalWiki. Also, when has she made comments that are misogynistic or genocidal?YXTQWFclimbTheStairs 05:51, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
Did you read the article, and did you read the RW definition of alt-right? "Y is more conservative than X on some issues" does not refute the premise "X is alt-right." Angela Merkel was not personally pro-same sex marriage and Milo Yiannopoulos (presumably) is, but one of them is an odious alt-right arsewipe and the other is a moderate conservative German politician. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 12:58, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
So which of Blaire White's views would classify her as alt-right? She is more progressive on trans issues compared to most conservatives. She isn't particularly racist; generally, the alt-right supports "race realism", believes in white genocide, supports an ethnostate—none of that is true for White.YXTQWFclimbTheStairs 09:54, 1 October 2019 (UTC)
You seem to have a bit of difficulty wrapping your head around this, but Ms White is of interest to RW because she represents alt-right viewpoints. Not every YouTuber gets a write-up here. The article itself gives ample reason why she ought to be regarded as such. Accordingly I am going to roll back to @GrammarCommie's last edit. If you wish to make a case that she is not alt-right, the burden of proof is on you here. CogitoNotStirred (via telepathy) (talk) 03:42, 18 October 2019 (UTC)

More material[edit]

I have compiled quite a bit of up-to-date material on Blaire, including an expansion on her specific transmedicalist views and her behaviour toward other trans/nonbinary people, including some references to left-wing response videos (featuring her footage) rather than her original videos (so as to not send views her way). I would like to go ahead and add all this material to the article if I may. Vermilion (talk) 05:36, 7 February 2020 (UTC)

  • OK, I've added the stuff I have, with references. There may still be more room for expansion of some points. Hope you like it. Vermilion (talk) 06:28, 8 February 2020 (UTC)

Is the point of this wiki to list all youtube nobodies, who have offended someone?[edit]

There used to be debunking pseudoscience in here few years ago, but nowdays it's all about cataloguing internet drama. This site is becoming an unfunny version of ED Filtered Walrus (talk) 14:04, 10 February 2020 (UTC)

@Filtered Walrus It's not our fault if your understanding of pseudoscience is stunted. Perhaps you should try reading the relevant literature? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:08, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
I wouldn't classify someone with 800k+ subscribers as a "nobody", and this article is absolutely about counteracting both the pseudoscience and the harmful, transphobic ideas that White promotes to her large audience. Vermilion (talk) 23:54, 10 February 2020 (UTC)
You shouldn't let articles like these bother you to the point of defacing them. Kinda dilutes the point of your complaint. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 02:11, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
Wow, an idiot I put in the bin actually came back for more. That doesn’t happen often; they usually take the hint and fuck off. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 02:18, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
