So Dr. Bennet Omalu came to speak at our college today
As you may know, he’s the doctor who discovered CTE and got in a huge war with the NFL over his findings. He imparted many words of inspiration and wisdom to us tonight and gave us a lot as a community to think about. However, my favorite bit of advice came as he was discussing how any blow to the head can cause sub-concussive trauma and damage to the brain, even if we don’t feel symptoms right away.
(Paraphrasing) “There are many things I advice people not to do. Parents who discipline their child by hitting them on the head, I tell them not to do that, because they are damaging their child’s brain. Similarly, I know many of you enjoy during your sexual time to hit your partner or be hit, and hit on the head! I advise you, please do not do this! For your health!”
Guys. The man’s talking about BDSM. Dr. Bennet Omalu, world famous neuropathologist with 8 different degrees and certifications, came to my school to KINK SHAME US.
HE COMES INTO OUR HOUSE. OUR HOUSE.
I’M DYING. I love this man. So much.
