The truth is, the friendly part is a shameless ripoff of The Friendly Atheist (though he’s The Atheist Voice now), who is one of my favorite atheist personalities and whom I’ve been a fan of for a couple years. I love his warm, considerate and thoughtful presentation style, and he’s very easy on the eyes too. I also admire his intelligent and approachable argumentation, and his very thorough yet easily understandable logical analysis. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right? When I was inspired by Amanda’s contest and got the motivation to create my first video, I had to create a channel name. I wanted a name with a little character that would set me apart from the sea of YT channels, while also still defining me as an antinatalist, similar to how Childfree diANe uses the powerful SEO-friendly buzzword ‘childfree’ as part of her channel name. So The Friendly Antinatalist came to mind almost immediately, and voila. Salty Misanthropic Antinatalist Bitch was just too long and honest.
