Welcy Welcy to Episode Two of Bensplaining. I chat to writer and activist Kay Wilde about:
• Trans rights!
• Intersectional feminism!
• Gender abolitionists!
• Marriage equality!
• Toxic Masculinity!
• Capitalism’s impact on the LGBTI movement!
• George Christensen!
And heaps more.
Here are the legendary trans and non-binary figures Kay mentions:
• Norrie May-Welby
• Sylvia Rivera
• Marsha P. Johnson
• Juliet Jacques
• Leslie Feinberg
Here is Helen Razer’s controversial queer case against Marriage Equality.
And here is the Ursula Le Guinn quote from The Dispossessed at the end of the episode:
“Shevek saw that he had touched in these men an impersonal animosity that went very deep. Apparently they, like the tables on the ship, contained a woman, a suppressed, silenced, bestialized woman, a fury in a cage. He had no right to tease them. They knew no relation but possession. They were possessed.”
