Ep 36 INCELs

May 25, 2018

We go down the #INCEL rabbit hole in Episode 36. What IS an INCEL? What is the "INCEL rebellion," a "Chad," a "Stacy," a "Normie," and all the other various language and ideas guiding this particularly dangerous group of men. We also give you new language: "aggrieved entitlement," and "misogynistic terrorism." With all the #massshootings today, mostly committed by young white men who are angry with women for denying them sex, we provide a basic primer on this movement and make the connection, which is something that is being ignored in mainstream media outlets.

The #TrumpsterFire addresses #POTUS's misogyny (or hatred of women). Our #FierceWomanWarriors this episode are two #womenwriters who have shared their stories and exposed #JunotDiaz as a sexual predator: Zinzi Clemmons, author of What We Lose and Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties.

Our #MediaMinute asks you to watch the second season of Hulu's series The Handmaid's Tale. And finally, our #ActivistAction asks you to buy books by women #whistleblowers.

Ep 26 Toxic masculinity

Ep 26 Toxic masculinity

January 4, 2018

In Episode 26, we dig into toxic masculinity - what it is, examples of this particular brand of masculinity, how it hurts both women AND men, and how to resist and change this behavior. In the Trumpster Fire, we show how Donald Trump is a prime example of toxic masculinity. Our newest segment, Fierce Woman Warrior, is a brief profile on an amazing woman who is actively working to change her community. Our Fierce Woman Warrior this episode is Dr. Nadia Richardson, scholar and mental health wellness advocate who founded No More Martyrs. Our Media Minute asks you to read Naomi Klein's newest book, No is Not Enough:Resisting the New Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need and our Activist Action asks you to learn how to sit in silence with the stories you read from the #metoo movement.
