We also discuss identity politics and implicit bias – for more on this, take the Harvard Test and watch this show on SBS.

We mention Nandos cashing in on the queer market. For more on animal exploiting fast food corporations making money off the queer movement, check out Jess Ison’s talk: “Do Gay People Even Eat Fast Food?” Queering animal liberation (animalizing queer?) which we played on episode 140.

We spotted this in Leeds.

We finish the episode by discussing Jack’s involvement with Leeds Survivor Support Group, “ideal victims” and male victims of sexual assault. There is a video on this topic but we will add a content warning for discussion of sexual assault and very frequent use of “the r word”: link for video.

Jack has set up this important group.

On this episode we speak out in defense of Safe Schools, a program designed to increase awareness of queer issues in schools and reduce the bullying faced by queer kids. This program is currently under attack from homophobic, transphobic and all round queerphobic assholes – some of who are politicians such as Senator Cory Bernadi, leading to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull approving an investigation into Safe Schools.

Some things you can do to support Safe Schools:

Also covered on the episode is: further discussion on activism for refugees and on the importance of not just letting them stay but also closing the camps (opposing mandatory detention and offshore processing) in light of Baby Asha being released into community detention for the short term at least, #CrushPlastic and our latest find from the street.

On this episode we’re joined by Dr Tim Dymond who speaks about Unionists for Refugees and APHEDA – the Australian Council of Trade Union’s overseas humanitarian aid program.

We also discuss the recent racially-motived terrorist attack in South Carolina and link the language used by the shooter to the racist Reclaim Australia movement in Australia. We also take on Reclaim Australia’s hijacking of progressive causes and their fake “concern” for feminism, animal rights and queer rights – you can share our meme on this (below) on Facebook and Twitter.

Other stuff covered on the episode is: call in culture versus call out culture, who is to blame for animal exploitation?, and we read out a tweet (embedded below) which debunks the idea of being socially progressive but economically conservative.

We also promote our very first Progressive Podcast Australia meet up. This will be on Wednesday 8th of July at 6.30pm at the vegan restaurant Smith & Daughters – 175 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne.
