Proud to be a problematic woman

Most of my life I have oscillated between liberal and conservative perspectives. My agreeable and socially-minded inclinations mixed with a love of science, philosophy, and world cultures seemed to reflect a more liberal world-view whereas my experience with family, friends, and the world at large tended to reinforce conservative behavior and opinions. I have always felt like I didn’t belong on either side.

Then I found Problematic Women. In the podcasts led originally by Kelsey Harkness Bolar and Bre Payton, I learned that it is possible to hold opposing viewpoints in one complicated, strong, well-manicured hand. I could be a feminist and pro-life. I could have a deep social conscience and not believe it was my sole responsibility to fix all the world’s ills. I could see injustices from both perspectives and recognize that they were complicated situations not easily addressed by hash-tags and so-called social justice warriors. I could be problematic - not one or the other but a wonderful blend of both that was all me. Not only that, I had someplace to go to get fact-based, thoroughly researched information that backed up what my gut was telling me but that I couldn’t find in ‘traditional,’ more liberal-oriented media sources.

I discovered Problematic Women Spring 2019 and went back and listened to all the episodes from the beginning. I enjoyed the podcast so much I looked up Kelsey Harkness and Bre Payton online to find their credentials and get a list of their previous and ongoing work. To my dismay, I learned of Bre’s passing in December 2018. I knew every time I listened to past podcasts and heard Bre’s voice what was going to happen. The sense of foreboding grew with each passing week. I felt involved in the podcast in a way I never had before because I knew each episode was bringing me closer to the time when her voice would be silenced. I cried when Kelsey and Lauren Evans returned to the podcast with news of Bre’s death and testimonials from those who knew Bre best. Even though I didn't know Bre personally, I admired her perspective and bravery and was saddened by her premature passing. Kelsey’s dedication to Bre at the end of each episode pays homage to Bre and reminds each one of us how fleeting and beautiful life is.

Kelsey Harkness Bolar and Lauren Evans now generally host each episode, with occasional guest-hosts, and each podcast has three sections: a review of relevant issues in the news cycle; a deep-dive into a specific hot-button issue; and the crowning of each week’s eponymous ‘Problematic Woman.' Because of the younger age of the hosts, the show is informative yet fresh, professional yet approachable, worldly yet genuine. I never know if I’m going to laugh or cry, or be outraged or amazed by the range of content and perspectives of the hosts and their guests. I look forward to many more episodes of the show.

Radical Feminists WOLF

As a therapist, I really appreciated someone finally speaking up against sexualizing children and allowing them to make adult decisions. This IS ludicrous and I have been even more shocked recently to hear fellow professionals talking about a 4 yo trans. My God! Let children be children and adults stop f—ing them up even more with YOUR PC ideas. Listening to your show, even though you are very young, you are quite bright. It is validating.
