On red pills and #transgender rights w/ @transscribe — #KatieSpeakShow Ep91 06/03/2017

In brief: CN: transphobia/TERFs

Katelyn Burns is back on the show for an extended conversation about the barriers to transgender healthcare and protections, including some history in which we get to blame Reagan (my favorite thing) and a crew of hateful “radical feminists.” We also discussed the transphobic AF cancelled Left Forum panel on the collusion between “Big Pharma” and the “well-funded” (heavy on the scare quotes) transgender rights movement. Red pilling and the unfortunate right turn of popular YouTuber Laci Green and the complicated nuances of whether to label Gender Dysphoria a disability also get some air time.
