UnderGround Forums Rogan reacts to accusations of transphobia

On a 2013 episode of the JRE, host Joe Rogan criticized Fallon Fox, the first openly transgender athlete in MMA history, for entering a fight without informing her opponent, and for having a man's bone density, and other attributes, in a WMMA fight.

When Rogan endorsed Bernie Sanders, a number of media outlets unearthed the old series, and cherry-picked seemingly controversial comments. However, during a recent JRE, Rogan responded.

"What was fascinating to me was that these people like f***ing CNN printed something saying I was homophobic and transphobic, there's a clip that they're using that's completely out of context," said Rogan, as transcribed by Daniel Cleary for Dexerto. "if there are some trans people listening to this, I've got nothing but love for you, for everybody."

"The video they are using is me saying, 'you're a f***ing man.' I definitely shouldn't have used those words. But this person was a man for 30 years, transitioned to become a woman for 2 years, and then started fighting women, didn't tell them she used to be a man and was smashing girls, she literally broke this girl's skull."

"Here's the thing, if she disclosed it and everyone knew I'm 100% okay with it. If you want to do that and you're a woman, it's your choice to fight a trans woman and see how you do."

"I'm not [transphobic]. This has only to do with athletics, in terms of your gender identity and who you are and what you want to do I don't care, and specifically, my wheelhouse which is fighting, there is a gigantic physical advantage that men have."

The context was a guy who was a male for 99% of his life switched to being a female and wants to fight women in WMMA (the Fallon Fox situation). He talks about it in one of the more recent podcasts (either the Edgar or Usman podcast IIRC).

No one is actually mad at Rogan, it's all fake outrage.

This is exactly why Joe should have done his thing and stayed out of politics.

Pretty sure, according to the lunatic left, he is still being transphobic. They'll say a trans person does not need to inform others of their transition. It doesn't matter.

We need to disavow Rogan on these forums, we cant afford to all be judged as racist and bigoted because we accept him here.

Joe Rogan we shun you, hate has no home here.

Ironically, Rogan is discovering what CNN always does with stories and "news" and that he's arrived at his position on Bernie Sanders by watching CNN shitnews in the first place. His view on Sanders is equally as skewed as trans people's view on Rogan via CNN.

Shouldn't have referred to a man as a man? lol. Okay.

He has absolutely no spine and is a perpetual fence rider. Pathetic!

He should just say in biological sex Fallon Fox is a man. And always will be. Fallon is a woman in gender. But sports should obviously categorize fighters by biological sex & not gender.
It's common sense.
If not then kamaru usman or John Jones could announce he is now a woman, take hormones for a year. And break woman's world records in weightlifting, win Olympic gold medals on wrestling & judo & win maybe half the woman's gold medals at the next Olympics.
Personally... I go by sex. Not gender. I'm not that interested in if people feel like they are men or woman or if they think they are Napoleon Bonaparte.
I'm more interested in what I think of people than what they think of themselves
