Gender Reveal

Jun 21, 2021

Tuck chats with Maddy Court (she/her), author of The Ex-Girlfriend of My Ex-Girlfriend Is My Girlfriend, in the first half of this special two-part queer advice episode.

Topics include:

  • Good(!) advice for meeting people w/o using Tinder
  • The bright spots of being single 
  • *~*~*horny summer~*~*~ hot tips?
  • Is everyone having more sex than us?! 
  • Plus: grotesque feminism, queer scarcity, and imagining sexier futures

This Week in Gender: The Dept. of Education says that Title IX protects trans students, and the VA pledges to cover gender confirming surgeries. (Hear a trans vet’s thoughts on military service in Episode 64.)
