Episode Info: Guess what! Welcome To My Vagina has joined GLOW, a really awesome site that allows you to support us via one-time or monthly subscriptions! AND we don’t have to be censored by the ridiculous terms/conditions of other sites (cough, cough PATREON cough, cough) in order to make money to support our work. It’s a win-win. So head on over to glow and become a subscriber!In this episode Jessy and Rebekah talk to dancer/choreographer/all around bad ass Miriam Wasmund about her amazing new collaborative piece Your Faithful Reader coming to Triskelion Arts in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on October 10th, 11th and 12th. You can buy tickets here or support the artists by donating to the project’s GoFundMe page. Then your favorite hosts go into a deep dive about censorship and cancel culture and how we have been afraid to speak our minds for fear that all of our work will be discredited if we misspeak. We are all here to learn, ourselves included, so we just want to create a safe space to listen, speak and, yes, get some things wrong. And then we talk about TINDA!04:30: Interested in what all the hubbub is about? Head on over to YourFaithfulReader.com to find a link to tickets and to the GoFundMe page!07:30: Here is the article, “White Supremacists Stole My Rabbi Husband’s Identity,” written for the New York Times by Avital Chizhik-Goldschmidt10:15: Here is the article, “’Cancel Culture’ is a Myth to Silence Marginalized Voices,” by David Dennis, Jr. who is a Professor of Journalism at Morehouse College.14:45: Here is a really awesome article from Vice by Rosalind Jana called “Mark My Words: The Subversive History of Women Using Thread as Ink” that talks all about the history of embroidery and how it has been a way for women to tell their stories within societies who otherwise won’t listen to them. What’s cool about this is that it gives some interesting background into why sites like Ravelry are so active in terms of keeping hate out of their online communities.20:20: This Vox article by Aja Romano really sums up everything with Ravelry. If you don’t want to read the whole thing, here is the central thesis: “(Ravelry’s) new policy holds that support for Trump is support for white supremacy, which is not conducive to positive community-building.”21:30: Here is Brother Nature’s account on Twitter. And a link to an article about the controversy concerning him as well as his apology. It’s good practice to have all the information and then make an informed decision about where you stand.31:45: Here is Loretta Ross’ article for the New York Times, “I’m a Black Feminist. I Think call-Out Culture is Toxic.”Support Welcome to My Vagina through Glow.fm!Contact us! Watch us!
