UConn Cancels On Comedian Over Criticism Of Trans Hormone Treatment

Milo:

Due to Owen Benjamin’s “increasingly negative” remarks on hormone replacement treatment for young ‘transgender’ children, the University of Connecticut has canceled his scheduled event.

The comedian was scheduled to perform at the university on October 25 but administrators, as well as the student group that invited him, canceled the event last week, citing concerns over remarks Benjamin made regarding hormone replacement therapy for young children.

“Being in favor of trans rights does not make you a liberal, which I am, I’m in favor of trans rights,” Benjamin said during a question and answer session at a college event. “Am I in a favor of preventing an 8-year-old from going through puberty because they want to wear a dress? Of course not. I’m so against that.”

“If that’s going to make me a bigot, then I’m a bigot. Because when I was five, when I was three, when I was seven, all I did was play the piano, weave cloth, go to my dad’s operas. I hated sports, I wore velour pants,” he continued. “I probably would have been labeled trans. I’m artistic, I probably would have wanted to wear a dress at some point.”

The University of Connecticut took offense to his remarks and wrote an email explaining why he would be canceled.

  1. How dare a comedian speak truth that offends people.

    Today’s college student needs to be shielded from the real world as long as they keep coughing up that sweet, sweet tuition money.

  2. How insensitive! Aw FFS who an I kidding…I think all those TRANNIES are nothing but a bunch of sick sux that probably should have been aborted in the first place!

  3. Hormones, encouraging a child to be mentally ill is wrong.

    Believe it or not, in California if parents try and council their children out of being mentally ill it is a crime and the kids will be taken away.

  4. Own Benjamin was almost a regular last month on Steven Crowder’s free show on YouTube. The two funny man are in sync with each other on every topic.

    Crowder made some promotionals with Benjamin that he’s still running.

  5. It sounds to me like he’s stealing material from Ben Shapiro..
    Makes me wonder if he’ll be going home in an ambulance too.. (See Zoey Tur (d))
