The Cult of Marriage with Gaia Morrissette

The Cult of Marriage with Gaia Morrissette

When Gaia Morrissette decided to get married, it was to game the system. But she discovered that people didn't like it when she told them that. Instead, she slowly realized that everyone around her was a member of the Cult of Marriage! So she undertook a grand experiment: Getting married to see how the rest of the world would react. And the results have been stunning. From high-pitched squeals to lovers getting squeamish to finding that clients find her more "trustworthy," the experience of marriage has shown  her that Western culture still clings to the way women were treated in the past.

Periods

Periods

The Red Badge of Courage. Moon Time. Good ol’ Aunt Flo. Call them what you will. Periods are a part of life. A very big part of it for people who menstruate, in fact. But it’s not helping anyone if we pretend they don’t happen just to make people who don’t menstruate more comfortable.

Fashion

Fashion

Lenny and Lynsey sit down over some beer and cider to talk about fashion! From a brilliant form of self-expression and rebellion to a tool of the patriarchy and colonization, fashion is where art meets utility, and it’s part of literally every human society. So let’s talk about it, and talk a little sh*t about it, too. From corsetry to hypersexualized headdresses to vablazzling (!?) to Dandyism, this episode touches on a little bit of everything. ...
