->''I mean, here you are, at a rally for the expressed purpose of denying your fellow citizens their equal rights, and all of a sudden these ''people'' show up. And they're just ''standing'' there, in front of you. And they actually have the nerve to ''disagree'' with you. Who could have seen '''that''' coming? I can only imagine the deep and enduring anguish of being confronted by people who don't share your "views".''
->- From [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_72nVAlm58 I'm sorry, NOM]].

A social/political commentary Internet show, written and hosted by the titular Zinnia Jones and distributed through her [[http://www.youtube.com/ZJemptv YouTube channel]]. Zinnia usually speaks about issues that connect to religion, politics ''and'' homophobia, but one of those three is enough and sometimes entirely different issues pop up as well.

Zinnia Jones identified as a gay man when she began the show, but since at least 2011 has identified as a gay woman and is on the path to matching her sex and gender through HRT.

Now, on to tropes.
----
!!Has examples of
* AbominationAccusationAttack: Used for satire in the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvcuRVbZMUU Conservative Christians Are Rapists And Pedophiles]].
* ActivistFundamentalistAntics: There are at least two episodes on this: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWOQGhhrIpE MassResistance]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EwlT5KzeRE Westbro Babtist Church]].
* AgreeToDisagree: The premise of the episode "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yAo4SoYOCE In Defense of Drawing Muhammad]]".
* AllGaysArePedophiles: Played with in the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lvcuRVbZMUU Conservative Christians Are Rapists And Pedophiles]].
* AmbiguousGender: Early on, Zinnia had a very ambiguous look that could be seen either way, and ignored questions about whether she was a boy or girl, and saying that you could use either 'he' or 'she' for pronouns, as she simply didn't care. She has since revealed that she was born male and "assigned" that gender at birth, but still doesn't really care, and seems to be at least somewhat amused by others frustrations over her appearance. Now she prefers feminine pronouns and has since gone though HRT to transition.
* AmbiguousSituation: Invoked in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v59b0iTRIs4 this episode]] about how different Christians interpret Literature/TheBible differently.

* ComingOutStory: The episode "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9_xsFId_eI Coming Out]]".
** Had an episode where she came out as a lesbian transwoman, called (funnily enough) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1gukLnbAIY&list=PLE764A630E498EB0C&index=59&feature=plpp_video "Coming out...again!"]].
* CoolShades: Wears a pair in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yAo4SoYOCE&feature=relmfu some]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehLC0y3K8ZY&feature=plcp videos]].
* DeadpanSnarker: In many episodes, especially episodes such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_5fZEUePvk Atheists Are So Arrogant!]]
* DoWrongRight: This admittedly slightly [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ZJemptv#p/u/1/3LXFtFlkUOI confusing video ]]
* {{Doublethink}}: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNcWdV0LYG4 The episode on Pascal's Wager]], briefly arguing the potential benefits of believing in different religions separately from each other but simultaneously.

* {{Eagleland}}: Type 1 played straight as finale of the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khtMufkEMUM Prop 8 overturned as unconstitutional!]]
* FeelingOppressedByTheirExistence: Discussed in the episode [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PlL-edhMILw 'Re: "Can't Even Go to the Park"']] regarding the blog post [[http://www.acceptingabundance.com/2011/08/cant-even-go-to-park.html "Can't Even Go to the Park"]] which gained international infamy for suggesting that the concepts of "freedom" and "Not outlawing the existence of gay people" are mutually exclusive.
* FinalSolution: Invoked in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yK02Lqky2U Jason "Molotov" Mitchell: Cheerleader for genocide]] as well as [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ZJemptv#p/u/0/Km0Au3Mmvtg Why Not Immortality?]]
* GodIsFlawed: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGiCuFQM2Vo One episode]] portrays God as a victim of peer pressure, with horrible consequences such as going along with barbaric cultural patterns until Jesus came along.

With "known unknowns", we are least know what kind of answer we are looking for. That something is an unknown unknown, however, means that we are even ignorant of our own ignorance. Zinnia argues that we should always listen to people's experiences: If nothing else, it can still alert us to questions we didn't yet know we needed an answer for.
* {{Immortality}}: Debated in episodes such as [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ZJemptv#p/u/1/ea5J1Dw8648 The pursuit of technological immortality]] and the follow-up [[http://www.youtube.com/user/ZJemptv#p/u/0/Km0Au3Mmvtg Why Not Immortality?]].
* InternalizedCategorism: Zinnia Jones talks about InternalizedHomophobia in several episodes, especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9_xsFId_eI ''coming out'']], which is based on the concept that HeteronormativeCrusader antics are designed to 'make'' gay people hate themselves.

* ReverseCerebusSyndrome: The serious elements were there from the beginning, but the attitude that gives it comedy value was added later. It started out as a regular video blog, without any style and with a very unrefined theme.
