Thanks for watching!

Intro music - "Love Duet" from Boris Godunov by Modest Mussorgsky

Today’s video topic was requested by a friend and viewer. I address what is a burden, common “symptoms” of feeling like a burden, why it occurs, and what can be done about it.

For my twentieth video, I will give you some fun, easy, and fundamental questions every couple should know before getting serious in a relationship. It gets harder to build a life with someone every year that goes by. So, it is important to ask the right questions that will help you determine quickly if this person will be a good fit for you.

After spending an entire evening filming and editing a video that turned out terrible, I created this one instead. In today’s video, I talk about the most significant things I got wrong in the past and what I came to believe instead. Some are funny and some are more serious, but each serve as a reminder of why it is so important to constantly question our assumptions and beliefs. Sit back and enjoy the story!

In today’s video, I present you with a shocking discovery I made about an event held at Ohio State called Sex Week. There are a few presentations at this event that are particularly questionable, including a workshop hosted by a porn studio.

As a follow-up to my last video regarding Gender Dysphoria, I wanted to provide you with the specific diagnostic criteria for Gender Dysphoria. I also discuss the disconnect between vernacular use of words and “expert” manipulation of certain definitions to fit a pollical agenda.

The diagnosis criteria comes directly from the DSM 5 (APA, 2013), used by mental health professionals to diagnose different types of mental illnesses.

Demystifying Gender Dysphoria – Terms Everyone Should Know

• Intro and follow-up on previous GD video: 0:00-2:00
• General info about diagnosis: 2:00-2:25
• Diagnostic Criteria for children: 2:25-4:45
• Diagnostic Criteria for adults and adolescents: 4:45- end

In the spirit of Valentine's day, I wanted to address a specific model of family therapy that can help you better understand your relationships through a fairness perspective. Many people feel that they disproportionately give without receiving anything of value in return. Any healthy relationship should be reciprocal and mutually beneficial. Contextual family therapy helps people understand what they want and how they can help their partner get what they want, too. If you feel you are in an unequal relationship, please watch this.

In today’s video, I talk about why I do not think raising the minimum wage will help poor people or the economy. If you have an economic argument for why we should raise the minimum wage or other arguments against raising the min. wage, please list them in the comments below. Thanks for watching!

There are some people too dependent on their pets, using them as a substitute for human connection. There are others who are neglectful of their pet, not considering its long-term wellbeing. Both contribute to what I call “toxic pet culture.” Today I talk about the four key aspects of toxic pet culture and describe some very important things to consider when adopting a pet. PLUS, my fuzzy, adorable and very grumpy rabbit, Murphy, makes her BitChute debut.

Many people are not able to engage in a productive disagreement about gender dysphoria simply because we are defining these words differently than mental health professionals and politicians. Regardless of our views on the usage of these definitions, these are the ones provided by the DSM 5 that mental health professionals are using. Since the DSM 5 costs at least $100, I want to make these terms more accessible so that more people can join the conversation, especially those skeptical of the transgender movement. It is important to at least know how different words are used in a clinical and political context. All definitions come from the DSM 5 (APA, 2013). These are often used by "experts" and politicians to be manipulative rather than informative.

Assigned gender – 1:45
Gender reassignment – 2:11
Gender identity – 2:16

Today’s video I list the most important questions to think about and ask your partner before making the decision to get married. I also talk about how I overcame my own fears around marriage. So many people nowadays are afraid to get married or even make a commitment. Rather than robbing yourself of the joys of marriage, make sure you are marrying the right person. A failed marriage is only inevitable if you are not willing to try; if you are not willing to take responsibility for your relationship. Start taking responsibility today by considering these vitally important questions.

In September of 2020 I submitted an essay for the Atlas Shrugged essay contest, held by the Ayn Rand Institute. While I did not win nor was I a finalist, I am still proud of my essay and would like to share it with you today. In this video, I cover my chosen essay prompt, my thesis and the main points, and finally discuss my process.

This video does contain Atlas Shrugged spoilers, so if you plan the read the book but want to explore Objectivism, please watch this video instead:

Since receiving a copy for Christmas, I have had many people tell me that they struggled to get through “12 Rules for Life” by Jordan Peterson. Some said they read it but didn’t get it and others gave up entirely. If you are someone who struggled with “12 Rules for Life” but want to give it another shot, watch this now.
Today I talk about my best tips and tricks for reading and understanding “12 Rules for Life.”

Synopsis (Amazon, 2018)
What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research.

Humorous, surprising and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.
What does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about success in life? Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods? What dreadful paths do people tread when they become resentful, arrogant and vengeful? Dr. Peterson journeys broadly, discussing discipline, freedom, adventure and responsibility, distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life. 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science, faith and human nature, while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its readers.

Today’s topic is a bit old news but still is very important to address when it comes to preserving culture, history, and humanity. Today I talk about the tearing down of historical statues!

Today I talk about my time in the gender studies department and the worst kind of teacher there is!

In today's video, I cover the most important parts of Dr. Meg Jay's "The Defining Decade." Topics include identity capital, shoulds vs goals and the myth of the urban family.

Purchase "The Defining Decade":

Synopsis of "The Defining Decade" (From Amazon)
Our "thirty-is-the-new-twenty" culture tells us the twentysomething years don't matter. Some say they are a second adolescence. Others call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood.
Drawing from almost two decades of work with hundreds of clients and students, The Defining Decade weaves the latest science of the twentysomething years with the behind-closed-doors stories from twentysomethings, themselves. The result is a provocative read that provides the tools necessary to make the most of your twenties, and shows us how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity, and even the brain can change more during this decade than at any other time in adulthood—if we use the time wisely.

Calling someone phobic or accusing them of being afraid of certain groups of people is a common way to dismiss someone's argument. Not only is that manipulative and disrespectful, but it also takes away from the experience of people who have clinical phobias.
