YMMV / Laci Green

  • Broken Base: After several years of being a staunch feminist, Laci took a more centrist position in 2017, claiming to want to create a dialogue between those inside and outside the movement. The result was an instant three way division in her fanbase. Some fans weren't affected, appreciating the acknowledgement that hypocrisy can exist on both sides and that Laci was not putting blind adherence to ideology before common decency. Some deserted her on the spot, seeing her as a "collaborator" with trolls and harassers and concerned that empathizing with racists would prevent her from putting common decency (IE non-racism) before ideology. And she gained some new fans who had experienced how nasty some on the Left can be towards people with differing opinions.
  • Cargo Ship: Used as a Visual Pun for her video on pansexuality.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Her open letter to fellow YouTuber Sam Pepper requesting that he take down and apologize for a video where he gropes women sparked a tidal wave of condemnation that essentially ended Pepper's YouTube career, which was impressive enough on its own. Then a slew of women came to Laci with stories of Pepper sexually assaulting them, landing her in the middle of a complicated situation that she handled responsibly and compassionately.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: This Valentine's Day video.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The Onion posted a joke article about a feminist woman taking a break from feminism to watch TV. Laci runs with it and talks about doing just that in this video.
  • Internet Backdraft: Her video on false rape accusations has... not been received very well by the internet, with by far the most common criticism, apart from claims of faulty data, incorrect statements and loaded terminology, being that her argument that false accusations almost never happen and that the possibility generally isn't worth considering is encouraging a court of public opinion before any actual evidence comes in. Not helped at all by her saying that courts aren't "arbiters of truth."
    • Her "Taking the Red Pill" video was not well received by a lot of viewers, mainly because "Taking the Red Pill" is a phrase commonly used as a rallying cry by people whose goals are explicitly anti-feminist. Dating Chris Raygun at the time has not helped...
  • Tearjerker: Her TRUMPOCALYPSE video. She barely keeps her composure while talking about health insurance, climate science and the like may be damaged by the new government. The fact that she looks a little dishevelled hints that maybe she'd been venting pretty hard before making the video.
