441: Tiger King’s Saff Reacts to Misgendering, Dr. Rachel Levine, Stopping the Clock on Women’s Tenure Tracks

Throwing Shade #441 April 29, 2020

This week, Bryan talks about Tiger King’s only decent human Saff Saffery and his reaction to being misgendered throughout the docu-series. Then, he discusses Dr. Rachel Levine, the secretary of health for Pennsylvania who is transgender, and the attacks she’s weathered on her gender identity and the groups that have come to her defense. Later, Erin gets deep into a report showing that women in academia are submitting fewer papers during coronavirus while men are submitting more – and how this points to a larger issue with “Stopping the Clock” on tenure.
