Episode 4.1: Rethinking Sodom: The Bible and Queer Sexuality

It’s time to grab your chocolate again, as in this episode (which is a cutout from last week’s binegativity episode), Bethany talks about everything that is wrong with all of us disgusting (homo/bi/pan/a/…) sexual humans – according to religious bigots. But don’t despair! She then deconstructs everything and tells these zealots why THEY are wrong. If you need good arguments against scripture-based queernegativity and if you want to listen to Beth butchering Greek words, to Liz swearing and to Bea not knowing the names of the articles she quotes and making jokes that nobody finds funny, you need this episode. You’re welcome.
