CONTENT
1   Not related just to this time slot, but I've noticed the timing of Contrapoints' video is very easy to organise. That is, her sentences and sections are concisely structure, and (probably coincidentally) easy to sort to the second. Her punctuated segments have been neatly lasting 4, 5 or 6 seconds each, all with a clear intentions, so that I can usually mark exactly where a sentence is beginning without the previous sentence bleeding in or missing the start.
2   I had to look up the usage of 'sour grapes', which I learned is the act of describing something to be of less value once one learns they can't obtain it. These few seconds are heavily weighted, implying the terminology designed to dehumanise women is a kind of coping mechanism for bitter men who have not had sexual experiences, that these men refuse to admit they crave intimacy with promiscuous women, and Contrapoints implying her high regard of promiscuous women, emphasised by the snideness in her enunciation of 'sour grapes', then nonchalantly eating a grape, likely as a taunt. There is an odd juxtaposition recurrent to Contrapoints where she both tries to address the subjects of her videos in a way they can relate to, while also underhanding them, usually with sexually suggestive taunts.
3   Contrapoints, though expressing discomfort in some instances, has explained at length the different perspectives, convictions and targets of of incels, with some examples shown on screen from the incel community. The depth of her explanations, and her ability to express the sentiments from the perspective of the group she's explaining, demonstrate her thorough investigation and appreciation of the community. There is a balance of disgust and fascination expressed in her critique, allowing the group to be humanised even if she is framing their behaviour as worthy of repulsion.
4   This is a demonstration that Contrapoints truly understands the concerns of the group she's discussing, since she can fluently adopt their language habits and describe their rationale from their perspective, rather than from the perspective of an outsider. This is masked by sarcasm, occasional deliberate exaggeration, and, naturally, a scripted and rehearsed speech, but the arguments she presents give enough depth to the community that we can assume the representations are founded at least in the reality perceived by the group members. Screenshots of Reddit posts and memes by that community confirm she has delved into their spaces.
5   In some instances as this one, there is no source offered of where the term is being referenced from, how valid this definition is, and how accepted the theory is as a whole. Contrapoints tends to include references to individuals or sources that are directly relevant to the topic she is discussing, and even some philosophers that may have appropriate insights, but it's unclear why she chooses not to do this for some concepts. She is clearly capable of researching and articulating ideas that add depth to her inquiry, and presenting these references on-screen or with direct quotes, but for more general ideas the audience does not always see where she is drawing her knowledge from. Her content is closer to an offering of organised speculations than it is an insistence of truth, but that does not dismiss these occasions where suggested readings could help her audience understand her reasoning.
6   This is a recurring joke on her channel, she comes out in most videos where it's relevant acting as if it's the first time, which may not be obvious to the newest viewers who have no prior experience with Contrapoints, but it can be recognised as a joke after regular viewing. This runs the risk of distancing viewers that do not appreciate her satire of creators or influencers who extend 'vulnerable moments' to their audience, since it assumes a lack of authenticity in those moments. On the other hand, her subtle and multitudinal in-jokes and references create a sense of community, since only dedicated viewers will notice all of them and be able to laugh with her. While I noticed this was an odd practice since she was openly male, later genderqueer, and later again female-presenting in videos on available on her channel, I did not recognise it as a recurring joke until this study, since her latest video makes the same joke.
7   This may be an interesting point to revisit in Molyneux's videos, since I did find some occasions where he alluded to his anticipation of how a certain idea was received, but perhaps didn't identify enough instances to consider it seriously. Even upon further coding of Contrapoints, I may find more examples where she is answering a question she presumes the audience will have, a possible demonstration in relatability by preparing answers.
8   Another reference to what's likely her most accredited quote, 'why is no one talking about the mouthfeel', expressing her frustration with a lack of discourse on the distinction between cis- and transgendered genitalia in terms of fellatio. The joke can be interpreted as a satire of something that could become a legitimate term or point of discussion, but is too absurd or lewd to be taken seriously.
9   Nearing the end of my focused coding, I've used the term 'logical' a lot in both videos a lot, and feel the need to clarify that the term should not be understood as meaning rational. The logic she describes is usually in reference to a certain perspective that is derived from a personal experience or observation, but certainly not based on open, thoughtful reflection. Her descriptions of the minds of the bigoted, prejudiced and privileged as exercising logical deductions and scientific methods humanises the people or groups that she's framing - she does not reduce them to a label, instead laying out what brought them to their conclusions, so the audience can understand their position rather than blindly react.
10   There are only a few moments where we see a genuine break from Contrapoints otherwise strictly rehearsed character, here describing a small laugh as she describes the insults she receives about her appearance. Self-mockery and self-satire are a large part of the Contrapoints persona, which can make the creator appear more approachable and relatable, since they enthusiastically acknowledge the oddness of their existence, and assert they are not without flaws. But in the instances where Contrapoints genuinely laughs, we see Natalie rather than Contrapoints, offering the audience a deeper insight to how Natalie is affected by her work. In this segment Contrapoints describes her experience reviewing extremely toxic comments about herself, and her struggle in distancing herself from toxic spaces, so these self-satires could be a sign of how she chooses to cope with the internalisation of that negativity. PT's Art vs Authenticity video could be an interesting elaboration on this point.
11   This was coined by Contrapoints in this video ('what we could call') but it's presented as a philosophical theory. Since she fails to credit sources for the psychological theories she offers, it appears to be another generally accepted theory rather than a proposition. This does not necessarily weaken her justification for its existence - this section of the video is basically designed to frame the prevalence of intentionally toxic engagement as a pursuit of truth - but the audience is left to decide, without directly being instructed to do so, whether or not her proposition is sufficiently evidenced based on the examples presented alone. One could interpret Contrapoints along these lines as a progressive philosophical thinker, sincerely committed to investigating and describing contemporary online behaviours, or as someone who is carelessly inventing terms that inflate a problem that isn't really there. The conclusion reached may depend on pre-existing notions about her personally.
