Top 10 Favourite YouTubers

The Amazing Atheist. I love this guy because he is funny, outspoken, sardonic and cynical. He has a tell-it-how-it-is, unapologetic attitude. He is direct and unafraid to address any issue. I don't agree with everything he says, but I like how he says it. (Now goes by his real name TJ Kirk).

Jaclyn Glenn. A little more laid back and less sardonic than TJ, Jaclyn also addresses issues concerning religion, politics, mental illness, young people and the like. She uses humour and logic and discusses women's issues without being a feminist. She is open-minded and critical and seems like a down-to-earth person.

Hunter Avallone. Like the other two, he is direct and unapologetic. I think he's a lot more stringent and has a slight cockiness that suits his style. I also have a bit of a crush on him, haha.

Laci Green. There are a lot of things I disagree with nowadays, but I've watched her vids for a few years and do think she has plenty of good stuff to say. She's very positive and has a good attitude, and wants to promote sex positivity and goodness for men and women. I don't agree with her feminism anymore, but I do think she has good intentions.

Latoya Forever. I used to watch this girl religiously, and unlike the others she's a comedic YouTuber whereas the others discuss current affairs and embed humour in that. I stopped watching her a year or two ago because I got bored of her vlog channel where all she does is film her life. However, I loved her comedy skits and still like to look back at them from time to time. Her videos would always cheer me up when I felt down and she inspired me to make my own comedy-based videos when I was 16.

DarkMatter2525. Part of the 'atheist youtuber' gang, he makes anti-theist cartoons that are hilarious and well written. Good for a general laugh and to learn something.

Shoe0nhead. She's got a great sense of humour and doesn't take herself too seriously. I like that she speaks out against modern feminism and outlines the problems with it, and talks about men's issues too such as male birth control.

BradDoesBanter. This guy is hilarious and the only British guy on this list (because I clearly adore the USA. The entertainment aspect anyway). He's another anti-SJW youtuber but his videos are done in a piss-taking super funny way that makes it hard to eat whilst watching else I'll choke on my food. He's just fucking jokes.

Blaire White. She is great, and she is beautiful. When I first saw some of her videos I wouldn't have guessed she was trans, besides the weird sounding voice. I think she's very rational and blunt which is great.

JayLove47. The only guy on the list that isn't a 'big' youtuber with a large following. I love his videos because they're so down-to-earth and humble and honest. Also they're always quite long and sometimes it's nice to sink in to a good long video. He says amazing things about people and life and I truly think he could be a motivational speaker. I do think he has a habit of repeating himself ALOT and often repeats the same topics. However, it's his outlet.

So there are my top 10 favourite YouTubers. I picked these guys because I watch them regularly - some of whom I've been watching for years, others for not as long - and they all inspire me in some way. They inspire me with my blog and my own YouTube channel which nowadays I only really use to post music stuff onto. They've shown me that you can be honest and blunt about issues. Jaclyn has discussed countless times about how her family disagree with her videos due to her being atheist and them being very conservative Christians. They all talk about dealing with hate mail and criticism. I think the most important thing is sticking to your guns. That's why TJ is my favourite; he truly says how he feels, and doesn't care, and I respect him a lot for that. Same with Hunter and Blaire and most of these guys. I think you have to be truthful when you're out in the Internet, otherwise you'll lose yourself. TJ has said that in person he's very meek and passive and shy. You can't be like that if you're trying to discuss Trump or Islam or Feminist Comics. People will walk all over you. In my day-to-day life I'm not permanently 'fired up' and loudmouthed; when dealing with others I'm pretty passive and chilled out. Everything is about context, and knowing how to voice your opinions. These guys have taught me a lot and I'm still learning.
