365: Queer Parents Don’t Sexualize Their Kids, Korean Women Rebel Against Cosmetics

Throwing Shade #365 November 14, 2018

Bryan and Erin take up the good fight against bank tellers with attitude on this week’s Throwing Shade! First, Bryan discusses a tweet that outlines the ridiculousness of the all-too-common lie that queer parents “sexualize” their children and how straight parents are actually more often to blame for the same – or worse – behavior. Then, Erin takes us through the latest positive trend in South Korean feminism as women are destroying their cosmetics in defiance of a culture that emphasizes physical beauty above all else.
