Republican transgender YouTuber takes on notions of identity -- both political and sexual

•, WITW Staff

Unabashedly antagonistic — her first video was titled "Female Privilege | Antifeminism," and she has since followed it with others such as "Fat Acceptance is Stupid" and "Trump IS Your President, Get Over It" — the now 24-year-old has accumulated a following of 450,000 subscribers on YouTube, some of whom, she says, are shocked or even appalled to discover that she is trans.

"If you mix being trans with having a few right-wing opinions … it's a shit show," says White. "I'll be scrolling through my tweets and my notifications, and I'll see a comment saying, 'Fuck Blaire White. She is a gatekeeper for the trans community. She hates trans people. She's a bigot' … Then I'll keep scrolling, and I'll see one from someone more so on the right saying, "Fuck Blaire White. She's a delusional man and she deserves to die.'" As she once put it in a tweet that has since been deleted, "Coming out as transgender was infinitely easier for me than coming out as a conservative."
