Colonial crimes, wigging out, and holiday self-care on this week’s Throwing Shade! Bryan talks about soccer player Megan Rapinoe, who was named Sports Illustrated’s ‘Sportsperson of the Year,’ and her use of the platform to speak out against racism, homophobia, and the lack of diversity within FIFA. Then, he and Erin discuss Merriam-Webster’s designation of ‘They’ as its Word of the Year, and later, Erin gets into the grit with Kentucky’s abortion ultrasound law, which has been permitted to stand after the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge against it.
