Episode 0007: The Unruly Measuring Stick for Rape Victims
Macie and Chelsea are all about F Bombs and adding a slice of humor and pizzazz to modern-day feminist issues, but sometimes we have to break it down and get serious too. We're talking about the many ugly faces of rape and sexual assault - the double standard for men and women; the laws that surround "legitimate" rape; the profiling of victims and perps...and just the ugly truth about what we're up against when it comes to this traumatizing and terrifying act.

Episode 0006: Say What? Words that are (and aren’t) Worth Repeating
Time Magazine came out with a poll to BAN a list of words from the year 2014. On it? Yep. Feminist. Yes, they came out and back pedaled a few days later, but what are the implications that come along with associating the "F" word to something that should be banned? What other words are we continuously using in our day-to-day language that should be looked at a little differently - certainly words that are more dangerous than "feminist?" We've got a few buzz words we'd like to discuss - along with some song lyrics and statements that turn the tables too.

Dropping the F Bomb – Episode 0001: “Slut-o-Ween”
Slutty ________. The majority of Halloween (or other dress-up days) seem to be described in this manner. Is slutty synonymous with sexy? Revealing? Not in its true meaning, no. Slutty implies that one's costume is a direct reflection of sleeping with a lot of people. It is an awful, degrading, and out-of-context label that is a source of detrimental damage to women of all different shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and stories. As women, we defend ourselves and work toward debunking using “slut” as a hurtful and untrue label. Yet when it comes to costuming, we self-identify ourselves as “slutty.” In turn, we perpetuate the idea that slutty is a descriptor that is socially acceptable to use. Men and women alike can divulge in talking about an outfit that is slutty.
