Propaganda Incites Conservative Action

In this episode I rant about the congressional Planned Parenthood hearing. Because these asshats are ignoring their actual jobs to investigate an upstanding organization based on some fraudulent propaganda put out by the actual law-breakers, Center for Medical Progress.

To hell with outcome based social policy when there is a pile of fuckery and misogyny to attend to for these legislators. Visit Issues for Your Tissues on Facebook for my favorite reads on the debacle of this hearing. #PinkOut

Sister Reach Fights Insulting, Racist Billboards

My guest, Cherisse Scott, Founder and CEO of Sister Reachfirst caught my attention in an local news interview from Memphis. 

Earlier this year, Pro-life [Pro-birth] Across America put billboards up around Memphis which urged black men to intercede in black women's reproductive health decisions, namely to prevent abortion. These advertisements sought to drive a wedge between black men and women, and negate women's bodily autonomy and moral agency. Scott worked with her community to address actual issues of social justice while undoing some of the damage the billboards did. Sister Reach launched a positive campaign to #TrustBlackWomen instead of judging women for whatever reproductive health decisions they make.

September is for Prostates

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness month! Dr. Sanford Jeames and Shelley Imholte, LCSW joined me to talk about prostates, surviving, and the prostate cancer support group they lead. It's free every first Tuesday of the month 7pm at St. David's South Austin.
