American YouTuber Laci Green mostly discusses sex education, feminism, gender identity, and sexual orientation in her videos. She goes under the alias GoGreen18 online. Green, who celebrated her tenth anniversary on YouTube in 2017, has 143 million views and 1.5 million subscribers. She had started making movies as a hobby a number of years earlier, and initially, they had been about theology and religion. That changed when she started teaching sex, and her channel started to become more well-known. Since then, she has received numerous honors, including Webby and Steamy awards. She has worked with “Planned Parenthood” and “Discovery News,” and she hosted the first MTV YouTube channel, “Braless.” She was listed by ‘Time’ magazine as one of the 30 most influential persons online in 2016. Green’s biweekly show “Sex Plus” has been a popular source of knowledge for the young adults of the digital age because of how controversial and direct she is while tackling important topics while using humor and her inherent attractiveness. She has a global readership of 5 million people in 196 nations.
Career of Laci Green
Growing up, Laci Green identified as a “nerd”. She adored libraries and thought of them as enchanted fortresses that provided her with cozy refuge from the persistent rain in Portland, where she was raised. She learned about the sex aisle at age ten. She became more curious and looked into it further. She began taking part in numerous social movements in college during her adolescence. She earned certification as a counselor for dating and rape violence. She then started regularly posting for “Sex Plus” on YouTube in order to engage with young adults and provide them with scientific information regarding sex, teen pregnancy, and gender identity.
She collaborated with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England on the “honest, open talk about sexuality” project known as “A Naked Notion.” She was selected as one of the three presenters for the DNews science vlog on Discovery Networks. She worked with MTV to create “Braless” in 2014, which offered a distinctive perspective on politics, history, and popular culture “through the lens of gender, equality, and a little thing called feminism.” Both as a sex educator and a representative of Planned Parenthood, she has lectured at numerous campuses.
Activism of Laci Green
Her understanding of feminism, which is an outgrowth of her secularist, humanist attitude, forms the philosophical foundation of her body of work. In all of her writing, she is a fervent advocate for the sex-positive cause. She explained the distinction between the two to bustle.com, saying, “When it comes to being a sexual subject versus a sexual object, we’re really talking about who you’re being sexual for. A sexual object is performed purely for other people. However, despite the fact that their videos were extremely sexually explicit, I contend that Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj are the sexual topics since they are the ones making the decisions about how they want to be portrayed. Sam Pepper, a fellow YouTuber, posted a video in 2014 in which he grabbed women’s bottoms as a joke. In an open letter, Green begged Pepper to “stop abusing women.” Several more well-known YouTubers also co-signed the document.
Disputes and scandals
Laci Green has endured unrelenting criticism and threats from extremist organizations on all sides since her early days on YouTube. For her vocal opinions on how limited rights are given to women in either faith, she was labeled anti-Mormon and anti-Islam. Her life has been threatened by both far-right and far-left organizations. She received criticism from the former for her unwavering stance on abortion rights and from the latter for occasionally using terminology incorrectly.
For putting Green’s image on a thumbnail for her video, “Roaming Millennial” was sued by Green for violating her copyright in late October 2016. Green was widely criticized for violating copyright rules, even if “Roaming Millennial” had not broken any laws in doing so, and this criticism was practically universal. Even Laci Green’s romantic history is not without controversy!
In April 2017, she started dating political satirist and YouTuber Chris Ray Gun. Given that Gun is, at best, an anti-feminist, it created quite a commotion. Green said in a video titled “Taking the Red Pill” (a reference to the film “Matrix”) that was posted on May 11 that while she still supports feminism, she is open to discussion with those who hold opposing views.
