Something in pop culture this week occurred and I’m going to shine a light on it. Buddy Franklin, the alleged bad boy of the Sydney Swans, withdrew from the game due to issues involving epilepsy and mental illness. The mind boggles at his courage. It’s like the coolest dude in the school admitting in front of the school that is he flaws. I use the term flaw for the sake of context but a mental illness is not a flaw. What Buddy Franklin did for ending stigma is remarkable. Good on him and good on society for having his back. Progress.
