342: Rainbow-washing, Pelvic Exams on Anesthetized Women, Guest Brian Jordan Alvarez

Attitudes! #342 June 7, 2018

Erin discovers an unfortunate royal connection on a brand new Throwing Shade! First, Bryan discusses the Supreme Court’s ruling on the gay wedding cake case and the excessive rainbow-washing done by corporations for Pride Month. Then, Erin reads a report from an NYU ethics division detailing the continued practice of having med students learn pelvic exams on unconsenting women who have been placed under anesthesia for unrelated gynecological procedures. Guest Brian Jordan Alvarez (The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo) joins to get deep into nicknames, Will & Grace, living in Tennessee, social anxiety, and much more.
