On this episode we’re joined by Sally Goldner, host of Out of the Pan radio show, to discuss queer issues and the queer movement post same-sex marriage in Australia.

More specifically, Sally covers: the importance of addressing transphobia and biphobia; intersections between queer issues and sex work; the queerphobia of Australia’s new Prime Minister, Scott Morrison; and trans representation in movies (in light of the recent controversy of Scarlett Johansson playing a transgender character).

For more on this issue of trans representation, check out the Q and A of the talk ‘Transgender Awareness and The Law’ by Cassie Giudice and the Out of the Pan episode ‘Scarlett covering transphobes working together’. This episode of Out of the Pan also has further analysis from Sally on queer issues and the queer movement post same-sex marriage in Australia.

This episode covers the amazing feminist campaign #takedownjulienblanc, which was successful in getting sexist pick up artist Julien Blanc kicked out of Australia. We also discuss how pick up artists contribute to a damaging, sexist culture. We go through Katie’s experiences with male harassment and assault, Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison kicks Julien Blanc out of the country while at the same time introducing horrible laws for asylum seekers regarding reporting sexual assault, sexism in the Left, the viral video showing ‘What it’s like to walk around New York as a woman’, pornography, Daisy Coleman’s experiences with victim blaming, musician Conor Oberst files a lawsuit against someone who made sexual assault allegations against him (this lawsuit has since been dropped after the allegation was withdrawn), and the Angry Hippies podcast episode on male aggression. We also mention Lifeline, Beyond Blue and give a disclaimer about the picture we used on our last episode.
