The Intersection of Gender And Agency w/@closettransgirl & @morgmeneshets — #KatieSpeakShow Ep37 05/21/2016

In brief: The “bathroom bill” fixation continues. My friend Katelyn Burns is on to talk about her experience and the great article she wrote. Come for the politics, stay for the outstanding take on the Genesis story! Also on the show, my friend Morgan Menses-Sheets talks about how becoming a parent of young girls reinforced her advocacy demanding we recognize the agency of minors. You don’t want to miss her take on parental involvement abortion bills and comprehensive sex ed. Enjoy!

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank you!
