A Forbidden Conversation about Gender Identity with Colin Wright
In this podcast-style interview, I chat with Colin Wright about one of the topics that probably scares me most to talk about publicly. And that’s exactly why I’m talking about it.
How did we get to a place where it can be so terrifying to speak on certain topics, and especially so when my own point of view isn’t even particularly controversial? What does that mean for society to find ourselves in this place? How does it harm us and the people that this shutting down of discourse purports to be protecting? How do we dig ourselves out of it?
As you may have guessed, in this video, we discuss the various issues around gender identity. The most dangerous topic on the Internet.
My guest happens to be an evolutionary biologist, so he is uniquely qualified to comment. Dr. Wright is also the Founding Editor of Reality's Last Stand, and an academic advisor for the Society for Evidence-Based Gender Medicine.
He also likes Whiskey, as you’ll see in the background.
I don’t want to get cancelled, again, but I do think we should be able to have conversations about challenging topics. In fact, I think it’s crucial. So, let’s the walk the talk, shall we?
Me and Colin agree on some things, probably disagree on a few too, but are more than willing to have a thoughtful and civil conversation. And speaking of, if you have a completely different point of view and would like to share it, please feel free to get in touch.
You can also read some of his writing in the WSJ:
Why do you think that gender ideology is a topic that’s become particularly so difficult to speak on openly, particular in the West? Do you see that changing? What are your thoughts on this interview? Any guests you’d like to see on future episodes? You know the drill, share in the comments.
