    After a big announcement, Beatrice, Artie, and Jules Gill-Peterson discuss a recent court ruling that gender dysphoria qualifies for protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the promises and perils of this framework, and the histories of both "gender dysphoria" as a term and the ADA's deliberate exclusion of trans identity from its text.

    Mon M. is an abolitionist organizer based in New York and the author of a recent op-ed arguing against so-called “humane” jails published in Teen Vogue called: ‘Feminist’ Jail Proposals Contribute to Mass Incarceration.”

Yes Jules!!!

I love you all so much, thanks for everything, and I can’t believe I’m actually writing a review. That’s how much I love you

Despite

I am rating this five stars because it’s such important information. Unfortunately it is unlistenable to me because of the plosives (when p or other consonants pop on the mic). I have sensory processing disorder and these types of sounds give me extreme anxiety. I hope the makers of this podcast resolve this issue. If that happens, I’ll be a dedicated listener.

Tips: there are plosive filters in most audio editing software - it’s tedious but it works. Another option is using pop filters which are very cheap to purchase and/or recording a bit further from the microphone.

Essential content

I listen each week to gain rare insight and perspective into salient issues that are systemic and negatively impacting our daily lives. I’ll admit it, I’m addicted and can’t miss a single episode. The fact that they cover these issues with such great care to *true* equity is entirely refreshing and exceptionally rare.
