Laugh Your Cry Out with Brit Abney

(Episode 16) Dr. Jordan Peterson, Dave Chappelle, our Transgendered Community, and the Wisdom of Youth.

In my attempt to understand our transgendered community a bit better, I sat down with a young man named Brit Abney to hear what he had to say. My invitation stemmed from our friendship on Facebook, and his prolific and compassionate defense of our transgendered community within his own friends and followers. We talked specifically about Dr. Jordan Peterson and the controversial C-16 Bill, as well as my favorite comedian, Dave Chappelle, and his Netflix special, The Closer. During our dialogue you'll hear us debate (and disagree) on terminology related to pronouns, triggers, and microaggressions, but more importantly, you'll witness the wisdom of youth in its finest form.

I think people should have the freedom to do whatever they want insofar as they are not harming another person. I’m a huge proponent of freedom and autonomy up until the point where you’re harming someone else. And, as soon as you harm someone else then I’m a big proponent of the government...getting in between you and saying, ‘Hey, you gotta stop that.’”
