Today’s episode dives deep into the presumptions we all have. Join Mick and Claire as they share their thoughts on why you need to get a grip on reality. Take notes as they explain how you can fight the societal norms placed on each gender.
    “Even in our daily actions and verbiage we are consciously or subconsciously making “female” negative.”
