Overview

Yep. More McCullen, Supreme Court and clinic defense. This week’s unanimous SCOTUS decision struck down the Massachusetts 35-foot state-wide buffer zone protecting reproductive healthcare clinics and open the door to challenges against most of the patchwork of ordinances and laws across the country. Hal and I talk Scalia’s conflict, the reality of violence, the hypocrisy of upholding “free speech zones,” etc. and SCOTUS not giving so much as half a care for the real lives of real people.

Overview

I’m always glad to do Matt’s show! It’s another sexual assault and consent discussion-laden clip, so trigger warnings and self-care advisories for sure. We talked the broader implications of the George Will column and I’m happy to report that this show is posting the same day the St. Louis Post-Dispatch announced they’re dropping Will’s column! If that doesn’t sound that exciting because you don’t know midwestern papers, it’s a big one. It has a solid history and it’s going to cost Will in syndication pay. Also, someone has to be the first. Here’s to more of this: ”Major Newspaper Dumps George Will, Apologizes For ‘Offensive’ Rape Column”.

You should definitely check out the entire show — Episode 334 with Cliff Schecter & Katie Klabusich (06/19/14) — and subscribe already because it’s fantastic.

Hal Sparks Radio Pgm -- Rich White Dudes Commandeer All The Things (06/14/14)

Overview

I can always count on Hal to join me in railing against misogyny and rampant misunderstanding of consent in our culture. So when George Will penned his rape apology, victim blaming column, I knew we’d be chatting about it on HSRP.

And we touched on the new ramp-up to "re-war" (?) in Iraq. It fits with the rich, white, male privilege in our political class who only value their own lives and autonomy. For the same reason they think they can commandeer my body at will, they think they have the right to seize land and resources and power overseas.

Radio Dispatch -- "Katie Klabusich on WaPo & #SurvivorPrivilege" (06/12/14)

Overview

I was more than happy to be back on Radio Dispatch with Molly Knefel! (John, apparently, had the audacity to take a vacation of some sort…) We talked The Washington Post — aka, Misogyny Daily — and their run of “Oh My God, you cannot be serious…” articles.

I was pretty emotionally exhausted after several days of talking about sexual assault non-stop and having people attack me as “not really raped” and “mocking survivors” because I didn’t describe any of the graphic physical details. They didn’t speak to Will’s column the way the more “subtle” and “less rapey” assaults do, so I left them for another time. Molly was generous and forgiving of my occasional stutter and pause to redirect my thoughts. She’s good people.

I’m including her intro in case you haven’t heard about WaPo’s awfulness and you should definitely check out the entire episode — ”Radio Dispatch: June 12, 2014” — and subscribe already because it’s fantastic.

Overview

Variation on a theme — the inability of our broader culture to understand the concept of consent — was the topic on both of our minds. And since I was in the Chicago studio for both hours, Hal and I dug deep into the idea of what he calls (and I like) “cultivating yes culture.”

We teach “no means no,” which I had considered problematic even before admitting to myself that I was on the receiving end of intimate partner violence over a five year period with my ex. So, drawing on the recent stories in the news about “honor killings” abroad and misogyny-fueled murders here at home, Hal and I did what we do: we discussed third-rail, adult topics much ignored by our culture because of discomfort and an outdated sense of decorum.

This show comes with trigger warnings, though still FCC clean. We — of course — had our silly moments, but this HSRP is definitely on the serious side. We took several calls, so if you’re downloading/streaming just for me (thanks!), remember it’s Hal’s show. I’m just in the sidecar. And next time — tune in and call in!

Dave Zirin’s piece for The Nation on Ray Rice exemplifying the culture of violence against women

Ta-Nehisi Coates piece on the case for reparations that Hal referenced on air — it’s a must read.

I recommended Tristan Taormino’s PuckerUp website for the people who think asking for consent “ruins the moment.” Get all her things; listen to her radio show: Sex Out Loud (nsfw).

My spot with on Dennis Trainor Jr’s new show that landed me on Newsbusters for being unapologetic about liking sex.
