Episode 121: Anti-trans Discourse, Sport, and our Fascist Moment

In this episode, all three hosts sit down to discuss how transphobic attempts to prohibit trans women from sports participation fit into a larger fascist project unfolding in North America today. We delve into Johanna's recent article for The Guardian on the question of 'allyship' (and, indeed, the politics of how we speak about allyship), why Trump and others made a spectacle out of the early loss of the USWNT, and why a seemingly comparatively insignificant issue (sports) has become so central to the political discourse today.
 
You can find Johanna's article here.
 
You can find Nathan's meditations on the subject from this summer here, here, and here.
