Eve Eurydice speaks with Chloe & Jessie, PhD students in Gender Studies at Yale & UC Berkeley who are a loving gay couple (one of them is trans). We talk about the fractured state of liberal feminism after the 2016 election & the direct correlation between today’s feminism & the anti capitalism anti racism anti mass incarceration anti police movements that challenge the existing hierarchical structures of oppression. It’s important to interrogate the way we each see ourselves & place ourselves in the world in order to improve it. If oppression first happened because of the gender discrepancy in biological reproduction; if male oppression of females is the first & oldest systemic oppression, driven by male biological insecurity & resulting urge to take over & control the means of Re/Production; then all oppression is based on the model of patriarchal control of the womb. This doesn’t mean that the role we play in reproduction places us in donation-oppression categories ‘naturally.’ This oppression doesn’t happen in nature. In fact, women’s oppression was intensified in Victorian times with the advent of the Industrial Revolution & Colonialism. As we evolve, our vocabulary keeps changing; we get to coin words for things that were unspeakable or shameful; new words that come free of judgment & self harming shame; so by participating in speaking sex, we get to use more words that speak of social change & expand our own voice. Rather than go on with the vocabulary we grew up with that hurts people’s feelings & disrespects or marginalizes most of us in different ways, we can choose to update our vocabulary. That’s the mission of Speaking Sex. For more, go to @speaksexpodcast or https://Speaksexpodcast.com or Facebook.com/Speaksexpodcast/
