On this episode we take on the idea that reverse “sexism” (against men) and reverse “racism” (against white people) are real things.

In our discussion of reverse “sexism” and “racism”, we cover Glastonbury Music Festival, Sad Grrrls Fest Melbourne, Becky’s and ‘Study Finds That White Privilege Makes Up For White Guilt’.

Also covered throughout the episode is: Celeste Liddle’s article ‘Fighting for Sovereignty and Treaties over Recognition’, which covers some Indigenous criticisms of Constitutional Recognition, and Katie promotes the app Carousell.
