Now they just look insane

Translation: "My parents suggested that I lose weight a long time ago. How dare they try to prevent me from becoming morbidly obese ... Like I am now. I see no point whatsoever in what they were trying to do."

The lack of self-awareness is amazing. And if she thinks she knows how to style herself now, then ... Wow.

Also, Lindsay is taking Vox's side? Where's the "no duh" reaction when you need it?

Well if she was going for the Peter Griffin look...

Eh I guess but I prefer her Nostalgia Chick days before we learned how miserable she was playing the characer. I'm not afraid to admit that I much preferred her over Doug and she just seemed like a chill person that you wouldn't mind watching movies with. And then we saw who she really is and you can only imagine how annoying it'd be to watch things with her company.



Pretty much. She just seemed really chill. Her, Nella, and Eliza seemed like just a chill posse and were much more likeable than Doug, Tamara, and Malcolm. It always felt like Tamara and Malcolm were just there for the paycheck but with Lindsay and her two friends, it felt like they were geniuine friends which made the Nostalgia Chick videos fun at the time.
Eliza's politics are a little cringe-y, but I still tolerate her. I think it's because she's not as whiny as Nella or as try-hard pseudo-intellectual as Lindsey.

She knows that what she likes is goofy and campy and acknowledges it. I'll take that over Lindsey's need to turn everything into a deep sociopolitical diatribe any day. Yeah, she brings up the LGBT stuff sometimes, but I don't find it obtrusive, since vampires are historically pretty gay. I don't say that as an insult, by the way- I'm being literal. Same-gender romance is really common in vampire fiction.

I also just have a soft-spot for vampires. If Eliza's channel wasn't vampire themed, I probably wouldn't be watching her videos.

Lindsay was briefly interviewed for this Contrapoints blowfile https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/la-et-st-transgender-youtuber-contrapoints-cultural-divide-20190612-story.html
Wynn’s ideas are layered in empathy, says Lindsay Ellis, a media and film critic with 645,000 YouTube subscribers. She met Wynn after donating to ContraPoints’ Patreon crowdfunding page. She was impressed that Wynn realized that shaming people might feel righteous but doesn’t change minds, especially if you’re trying to alter the thinking of right-wing and other extremists groups.

“Natalie speaks their language,” Ellis says. “That’s something a lot of leftists can’t do. They can’t reach these borderline edgelord communities because they don’t speak the language of memes or why these people tend to fall down reactionary alt-right rabbit holes. [She] has found a way to get them to reconsider their positions and in this increasingly polarized discourse is becoming like the unicorn of skills. It’s extremely rare.”

You dont get more boomer than this. Making your own side look like Christian Camp attractting the kids with "post-modern culture" to convert them to your cause.
Besides, only people who like Contra think she knows about meme culture. Y´know, classic memes such as "fuck centrists" and "socialist catgirls". A fucking advice from a zoomer, stop sniffing your ass and get some oxygen, its good for your brain.

"right-wing and other extremist groups"

Just being right-wing means that you're part of an extremist group now I guess.

" [She] has found a way to get them to reconsider their positions"

Is there any evidence that literally anyone who wasn't already a leftist watches this deranged tranny? Linking a right-wing person to one of this freakshow's videos isn't going to convince them of anything other than that they're right to be suspicious of leftists.

I'm just surprised she didn't call out those stinking extremist moderates and neutrals.

I love that she doesn't realize that "leftist" means someone on the extreme left. And it's telling that she (and other leftists) think opinions and beliefs are reached through indoctrination. They need to alter the thinking of right-wing and other extremists groups. And obviously these people are right-wing and extremists is because they saw the wrong memes and fell down alt-right rabbit holes.

"The unicorn of skills. It's extremely rare". Either she doesn't know what a unicorn is, or she doesn't know what "rare" means. Regardless, talking to someone you disagree with isn't a rare skill. As a matter of fact, it's pretty fucking common. Like literally all the way up to just a few years ago, people were doing it. You know who created this environment where you can't talk to people? I'll give you a hint: They start with the letter "L", use violence to shut down speeches, pressure tech companies to censor or out right ban people, and think shaming feels righteous.

The only way leftists can convince or get people to reconsider their positions is the same way the mafia convinces and get people to reconsider their position. They sure are shit can get people to do that through discussion or reason, because every time they open their mouth, they sound like an insane person that people constantly want to distance themselves from.

As a general rule, if you think people opposite your platform are automatically evil extremists, you need to reevaluate your point of view. Or at the very least take the time out to understand that even your political opponents are human beings with feelings, not robots who exist to make your life miserable.

The only people that are objectively evil in today's political society are Neo-nazis, white supremacists, ISIS, and other actively violent groups in that vein. And even then, the argument could be made that those people are actually just extremely misanthropic and profoundly fucked in the head, and not necessarily evil. There are actually studies out there that have found correlations between head trauma and religious/political extremism. Internet cultures exacerbate the problem, because it causes people to gravitate towards cult-like echo-chambers.

Being in an echo chamber with no legitimate counter-arguments helps too.

If everyone you talk to supports your beliefs 100% you're only going to be more convinced your side is right and everyone else is objectively evil and not even really human.

Oh I can understand and I've seen a few of Eliza's videos. They aren't that bad I must admit and I do like vampires as well so I think it's cool that she puts so much effort into her videos and you can see she really enjoys them. I agree though that if she wasn't a vampire themed channel, I wouldn't have watched her videos neither and out of the three, she definitely seems the most chill.
