Identity Crisis Episode 11: Rob Hoogland and the Loudest Silence

In this episode, we talk about the distinction between being silenced and being silent (as Oprah Winfrey puts it in her interview with Meghan Markle). We discuss the case of Robert Hoogland, a Canadian man who is currently in prison for breaking a gag order that forbade him from speaking out against his daughter’s medical transition. If convicted, he faces a sentence of up to five years.

Some of the things we spoke about:
Even when the consequences to speaking out are major, we almost always have a choice, and must take responsibility for that choice.

Staying silent about a problem can mean you will have to deal with a magnified version of the problem down the road.
Silencing yourself can make you start to conform your thoughts to the group’s opinion.
What makes some people feel compelled to speak the truth when others don’t?
