Here Are Five of Your New “Unproblematic Faves”

September 14, 20175 min read

These days, unproblematic faves are hard to come by. With the current state of the world and political climate, it seems like every time you log on, there seems to be another person being “cancelled” for something or the other. And rightfully so too. Nowadays celebrities and influencers are saying the wrong things about the wrong people at the wrong times, and it’s starting to look as if there is no one left to “stan” anymore. That’s where we come in.

Here are five of your new Unproblematic Faves.

#1: Chase Ross

Chase holds monthly giveaways featuring things like binders, toys, and other trans related goodies. He is known for his hilarious personality, cats, and educational videos including a recently launched series on his channel called “Trans 101” meant for parents and loved ones of trans people.
