This episode has Kenny, Mario and Trevor as hosts.

We talk about an attempt to be woke online about the topic of continual consent that backfired for an online activist as well as the topic of how a lot of the people who make hating straight Black men a core part of their online identity are actually mad about an idea they hold about straight Black men being more popular with the white kids in high school than they were, and how much of their “ideology” is just residual jealousy that originates in that notion. Then in part 2, T. breaks out a psychological theory about Mandingoism and Mapplethorpism that grosses out the other sharks.

Professor Heidi Matthews researches and teaches in the areas of international criminal law, the law of war, international legal history and political theory. Her work theorizes contemporary shifts in the practice and discourse of the global legal regulation of political violence, with particular attention to history and gender, as well as political, critical and aesthetic theory.

Today Heidi and I talk about two of her articles, one about whether #MeToo can be deemed a modern sex panic and the other about the concept of creeps and the ways in which being deemed a creep fits into the presumption of being a sexual threat and pariah.
