Episode 26: Sex-Positive Feminism

Grab some chocolate and join us for this month’s first episode and the first episode ever that was recorded in ONE PLACE and not via the Internet. Yes, we were actually in the same room and talking about sex. More specifically: sex-positive feminism, its origins, its proponents, opponents and everything that is good and/or bad about it. Spoiler alert: sex(uality), like everything else is intertwined with the patriarchal culture we all grew up in and where socialized into. Who would have thought ­čśë

Episode 22: How to be a male feminist with Michael W├╝rmer

Men who claim to be feminists and then turn out to be (alleged) abusers of women (like James Deen or, most recently Eric Schneiderman) repeatedly focus the public’s attention on male feminism: is it possible, what does it mean and what place should men have in the feminist movement?

Today we discuss what it takes to be a male feminist, how to differentiate between faux feminism and actual feminism in a conversation with “not purely male, fluid inbetween”┬áfeminist photographer and artist Michael W├╝rmer.

Get your chocolate ready and join the debate.

Episode 19: The Friendzone and Toxic Masculinity

You guys, you’ll need all the chocolate for this ’cause we’ll be talking about the myth of the friendzone and all the misogyny connected to it. It’s ugly.

What do the “friendzone”, toxic masculinity, and the “incels” have in common?┬á Everything!

The domestic terrorism that we have seen perpetuated by men, unhappy with their relationships, on innocent bystanders may be the most extreme expression of misogynistic violence perpetrated by those who consider themselves victimized by the “friendzone”. But the toxic masculinity and misogyny is pervasive and is part of all women’s experiences at one point or another.

In this episode we talk about institutionalize misogyny, how popular culture perpetuates unsafe, unhealthy relationships and what we can do about it.
