“Dick Appointment” Beauty Tutorials Pissing off the Alt-Right

 
 
 

A new video trend among sex-positive YouTube beauty bloggers are “dick appointment” makeup tutorials, helpful and hilarious guides on how to nail a glam, low-maintenance look that won’t slide off your face during a hookup (what they deem a ’dick appointment’). Unsurprisingly, this trend is outraging right-wing Twitter. Posts about YouTube banning alt-right content on the site while allowing these dick appointment videos have flooded social media by conservatives. Why is this fun, sex-positive content becoming the scapegoat for the right-wing rage? Since YouTube has been cracking down on hateful content, which happens to quite often be alt-right content, trolls are flocking to the comments section of these dick appointment tutorials and slut-shaming viewers and creators alike. Creators are encouraging their viewers to ignore these haters, and embrace the sex-positive beauty fun to be had in watching and learning from these videos!
