449: JK Rowling’s Trans-Exclusionary Essay, Protesting & Your Period

Attitudes! #449 June 24, 2020

On this week’s Throwing Shade, Bryan discusses J.K. Rowling’s ignorant and regressive tweetstorm (and subsequent essay) about what she believes constitutes ‘womanhood’. Then, Erin explains why protesting can be far more dangerous for women due to the unexpected effects that tear gas has on the female reproductive system.


Throwing Shade is raising money for The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, “created to elevate, support, and nourish the voices of BLACK trans people.”
