Jaclyn Glenn

Jaclyn Glenn is an atheist vlogger. As of 2016, she has over 300,000 subscribers to her channel.

Background

Glenn was raised Roman Catholic, and was still a Christian when she started vlogging on YouTube. In her early videos, she generally expressed liberal views on social matters. She apparently began to question Catholicism's stance on divorce, which led to a questioning of her faith more generally. In 2012, she revealed that she was no longer religious, and now identified as an agnostic. She has since come to call herself an atheist.

Richard Dawkins has shown some pretty strong support for Glenn. 

Views

Religion

As an atheist activist, Glenn is critical of religion. She has criticized Christianity, mostly fundamentalism within the religion, as well as Islam, arguing that it promotes violence.

She is opposed to Atheism+, which she describes as "atheism plus radical feminism".[3] Despite this definition being far from the truth, she seems to support a lot of the same values as Atheism+ at times.

LGBT rights

Glenn is an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights, and has made efforts to spread awareness and prevention of suicide among LGBT youth.

Relationship with feminism

Glenn has attracted a fair amount of MRAs to her videos after voicing her opinions against feminism,[4] It seems her main issues with feminism are radical feminists. Some have criticized her for being an "MRA apologist". Some radical feminists have also criticized her for posing for Playboy.

Following the massacre committed by Elliot Rodger, she made a video arguing that Rodger's actions were solely based on mental illness, rather than misogyny. She has even gone as far as to claim feminists were "hijacking" the massacre to make it look like it was influenced by misogyny, when, according to Glenn, it wasn't.[5][6] Glenn's view specifically was endorsed by Dawkins.[7][8] Never mind that Rodger himself, widely considered one of the foremost experts on his motives, pretty explicitly debunked this.
