About ContraPoints

Just Who the Hell Do You Think You Are?

I’m a PhD dropout who makes YouTube videos, mostly discussing Internet culture, politics, and LGBT issues. My main political goal is to counterbalance the hatred toward progressive movements that is so common online, though I'm not afraid to criticize "my own side" either. Stylistically, I try to appeal to a wide audience and avoid merely preaching to the choir. I try to make the videos I'd want to watch: well-produced, informative, funny, and entertaining.

And What Are You Going To Do with My Money?

Your support enables me to buy costumes, makeup, props, software, and audio/video equipment. It also now enables me to do this as a full-time job, writing, recording, editing and publishing high-quality videos.

Okay, I’m Sold. But What’s in It for Me?

Depending on their reward level, patrons get updates about what I’m working on, access to outtake/behind-the-scenes videos, participation in AMA live streams, and recognition in my video credits.

How Often Should I Expect New Videos?

Good question! It used to be one 20 minute video per month, then it was one 40 minute video every two months. Now it's become one 100 minute video every six months. But I'm trying to go back to shorter-form, more frequent content, so I intend to post more frequently than I have forthe last year.
