About ContraPoints

ContraPoints is one of the most unique channels out there, created and powered by Natalie Wynn, an "ex-philosopher" who hasn’t stopped philosophizing. Viewers of this channel enjoy deep dives into issues exploring politics, gender, race and social justice. Her videos are longer than most on YouTube, often coming in at over 45 minutes long, allowing Natalie to really explore topics like "Transtrenders" and "Men." Her lengthy, carefully and thoughtfully made videos rack in the views, with her most popular video, "Gender Critical," receiving 1.5M+ views. Natalie continues to find engaging ways to explore new topics, as 2020 will surely include some dramatic and educational lessons.
