Tits on legally-male transgender people cause a tempest in a teapot on a Delaware beach, the US State Department lets people change the sex on their passport without going under the knife, low pay and few promotions are causing women to leave careers in engineering more often than men, and despite the drumbeat of moral panic, only 8% of women say sex before marriage is a bad idea.
This week, Emma and I returned from KinkForAll Washington DC 2 and promptly invigorated ourselves in a conversation with educational psychology Ph.D. Karen Rayne and “uppity Portuguese woman” and intersex activist solidad decosta. We were treated to a short poetry performance by solidad on the struggles of intersexuality and gender identity, and Karen Rayne showed us her marvelous Belly Project photo blog, which is well worth a look!
By the by, I want to take a moment to apologize for the tardiness of this episode’s publication, due in large part to our tremendous effort to ensure KinkForAll Washington DC 2 media got produced and uploaded quickly (check out our Sexy Fun Time with Google Apps video!), as well as our sound engineer Ian’s recent job change. Emma, Ian, and I work pretty hard each week to produce episodes, but don’t forget that you can always watch a replay of the most recent episode at live.kinkontap.com immediately after we record it. Also, if you like the show, please help us keep it going by donating $2 or $5 a month—that’s less than the price of a fancy coffee!
