348: Detained Pregnant Women, Gay And Trans Panic Defense Prohibition Act, Guest Melinna Bobadilla
Throwing Shade #348 July 18, 2018
This week, Erin discusses a Buzzfeed report on the treatment of pregnant women in detention facilities and the hypocrisy of “pro-life” silence on the issue. Then, Bryan examines the legislation introduced by Democrats in Congress to combat the all-too frequent court defense of “gay or trans panic,” and activist, actor, and co-host of the podcast Tamarindo Melinna Bobadilla joins to talk about identifying as Chicana, learning that politics is personal, growing into Janelle Monáe fandom, and much, much more.
