Proud transphobe and lesbian YouTuber Arielle Scarcella is ‘leaving the insane progressive left’
Lesbian and transphobic YouTuber Arielle Scarcella has announced, to the surprise of literally no one, that she is “leaving the insane progressive left” and “coming out” as conservative.
Scarcella’s LGBT-centred YouTube channel has more than 630,000 subscribers, but she has long been criticised for her anti-trans views and has even uploaded a video called ‘I Won’t Apologise for Being Transphobic’.
Last week, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG) scrapped a panel featuring the lesbian YouTuber after backlash over her self-identified transphobia.
On Friday, February 21, Scarcella released a new video titled ‘I’m A Lesbian Woman & I’m Leaving The INSANE Progressive Left’, in which she said: “I’m a lesbian, and I don’t think gender is a social construct. I don’t think cis straight white men are evil.
“I don’t believe that genital preferences are transphobic or that there are 97 genders. I don’t think that male sex offenders belong in women’s prisons… This is my coming out video.”
She added: “Some of you have noticed this change coming onto my channel within the past two years, as I’ve gotten what some people would say more conservative.
“And yeah, I have, haven’t I? Since the queer movement right now is obsessed with all these different labels and I am a fan of labels, I wanted to share a new label of mine with you, I’m coming out, I am officially leaving the left.”

Arielle Scarcella said she has been “tortured” by the LGBT+ community.
Arielle Scarcella said that she had been “cancelled, tortured, tormented [and] harassed” by the LGBT+ community, but then also said: “I witnessed literal mentally ill individuals who are latching themselves onto the LGBT+ community without actually being LGBT+ for the sake of oppression points, external validation and sympathy.”
Seemingly confused as to whether she was upset with progressives, left-wing people, the LGBT+ community as a whole, trans people specifically or people with mental illnesses, she squashed them all under the umbrella of “this ridiculously woke cult”.
She continued: “It’s gotten to the point where I can no longer even list LGBT+ or women empowerment in my Instagram and Twitter bios without people thinking I’m part of this ridiculously woke cult… The LGBT+ community has become a safe haven for the mentally unstable, who are not seeking help, and who also aren’t in any sense of the word queer.
“We’ve become so obsessed with validating everybody. How did we not see this coming? This community has become so ridiculously intolerant, while preaching love, that for the first time in a decade, LGBT+ acceptance is down.
“Anyone who goes against the grain and thinks for themselves is immediately outcast. That’s not a community that’s a hive mind cult… I no longer want to be associated with the ridiculously woke left.”

Her “coming out” video has been endorsed by political commentator Dave Rubin, who blamed California’s wildfires on hiring LGBT+ and Black people, columnist Chad Felix Greene, who said “the stigma against my conservative politics is worse than the stigma of being gay”, and Superman star Dean Cain, who has been linked to the anti-LGBT+ hate group Family Research Council which compared gay rights to the holocaust.
