Hey kids, it's been a while but you know there is nothing quite like some bipartisan transphobia to force us to get a wriggle on.
CW for homophobia, transphobia, misogny, mentions of suicide and self harm.
We discuss the implications of the Religious Discrimination Bill if it passes without amendments, the discrimination laws that will be reversed in the name of religious discrimination and we have a chat about passages in the Bible which this discrimination is alledgedly justified.

This episode we are introducing a new cohost Steph, who you might remember from past episodes such as a Jaunty Stroll Through the History of Transmedicalisation and Happy Coup Year!
In just over an hour discuss Universal Childcare, some “interesting” research out of Germany and how it just one small piece of a utopian puzzle. We also talk about the education system, mental health, abortion, even Foucault gets a look in. All of this with our regulation shitting on the LNP, stoker, and a healthy skepticism of how something good can get coopted by neoliberalism.
For further reading
