Joe Rogan Responds to Spotify Employees
In a recent Joe Rogan Experience episode with Tim Dillon, Joe Rogan finally broke his silence on the recent push amongst some Spotify employees to have his podcast censored.
Here’s what Rogan had to say when questioned by Dillon:
They have literally said nothing to me about it. Zero. It’s never come up.
Now, is there someone at Spotify that’s complaining about the Abigail Shrier episode? I’m sure. I’m sure there’s someone that’s complaining about it.
Is it a transphobic episode? It’s not. They’re wrong. It has nothing to do with that. It has to do with the fact that human beings are actually malleable. We all know that. That’s why cults exist.
There’s a thought process now that if you’re talking about trans people you have to be 100% supportive. You can never question whether or not children should be allowed to transition, babies... hormone blockers for prepubescent children...all of this is madness.
Here’s the question - are there some people who are horribly sad that they transitioned and regret it terribly? The answer is yes.
Are there some people who are very happy that they transitioned and are much more happy in the gender of their choice - how they feel - than the gender of their birth? The answer is also yes, because people vary wildly.
What Abigail is talking about in her book Irreversible Damage is large clusters of kids, who are mostly kids that are socially awkward, many of them are autistic, many of them have never had any praise at all in their life and they transition and they get all this praise from people because right now it is in vogue, it is a thing.
This is the problem.
They look at this and they say it is openly transphobic.
It is not transphobic.
