In brief: My last regular spot with Ledge.

Overview

With sadness, I post this: my last appearance on Dangerous Conversation. I am overwhelmed with appreciation for my friend Scott Legere who has generously given me the space to say what I think exactly how I think it without censors or interruption. Ledge is moving on to the next chapter in his life and career and I look forward to seeing what form that takes — and hopefully finding out how I can be a part of it.

As always, in this spot we talked about everything from religion and the Pope to our lives and personal beliefs to the election and what’s next for the country. I hope you’ll enjoy this conclusion to a two-year run with Ledge and the boys and that you’ll stay tuned for what might be around the corner. I promise to keep you updated on any future announcements.

To the Radio IO/Bubba Army listeners who have supported me from the beginning, I can’t adequately express my gratitude. You followed, read, re-tweeted, asked questions, got on board and came along for the ride. When I have needed monetary support for clinic defense or backers to stand up to anti-choice wanted posters, you were first in line. I can’t tell you what it has meant to me to have you all stand with, behind, and — at times — in front of me on issues the pundits say you don’t give a damn about. Thank you.

[TW: rape/victim blaming]

I was back on with Matthew Filipowicz to talk about the latest on Rolling Stone fueling rape culture, the self-preservation motivation behind victim blaming, and my own story.

Overview:

I’m always glad to be on with Matt, who covers rape culture and bodily autonomy and all manner of social justice on a regular basis. An extra thank you to him for putting a trigger warning in his podcast and on air before playing our interview; the care he takes with the survivors in his audience is much appreciated.

The aspect of the story we spent a good deal of time on that is unique to our conversation is how much self-preservation is at the root of victim blaming. Yes, there are some straight up jerkbags out there; but mostly people want to identify what makes a victim stand out so that they can avoid being victimized. I hope you dig the nuance of our segment.

This clip made it onto The Best of the Left Podcast where (if you’ve missed it) I am the social media and activism director. You can catch the entire 70 minute show here: Episode #885 "A guide to doing it all wrong (The UVA Story - Rape Culture)” I’ve known Jay! — the producer/creator — for years and have enjoyed working with him immensely, in large part because of how much he cares about his contribution to social narratives. This episode was no exception. (You can subscribe for free at the same link.)

In brief: [TW: rape/victim blaming] I was back on with Justice Putnam to talk about Rolling Stone feeding rape culture and my own story. Stick around for his powerful personal story toward the end.

Overview:

I’m always glad to be on with Justice and this spot was no exception. There are fewer jokes than typical because of the tough subject and because I’m still getting used to articulating my story for an audience. We discussed why people blame the victim (my own theories) and why “How do we fix this??” is a way to derail a conversation on an issue that indicts the entirety of our culture.

In brief: My regular spot with Hal Sparks on WCPT Radio, Chicago!

Overview:

Today’s segment comes with a Trigger Warning for rape, sexual assault, victim blaming, explicit descriptions of abuse, etc. Please take care when listening and sharing.

I told part of my story of abuse and repeated rape (a story that will publish this week to include additional coverage of the fall-out) and explained while RS’s use of the word “discrepancy” was basically calling “Jackie” (the victim) a liar because they couldn’t own up to their own journalistic failings.

We did a quick inclusion of Bill Cosby’s allegations and I read part of my friend Ali Safran’s story at Buzzfeed about why we should believe survivors even if they can’t tell their story EXACTLY the same hundreds of times.

UPDATE: RollingStone quietly edited and reissued their “apology” to a more appropriate blaming of their staff late on Saturday. With the damage very much done and the publisher of a right-wing extremist site having already outed the UVA victim by name.

If you experience gendered threats of violence on Twitter — where support is NOTORIOUS for not caring, please use the Women, Action, Media’s new reporting tool. They’re working with Twitter to document the systematic harassment and hopefully change policy: WAM Twitter Harassment Reporting Tool
