Crazy Shit People Say

Sex Strikes and New Guidelines

#SexStrike By Alyssa Milano

Episode #75 begins with Alyssa Milano calling for a sex strike due to the new abortion laws that are being implemented in some states. The Dames ponder whether Milano’s call could hurt, rather than benefit, the feminist cause. It also leads to a discussion between The Dames about the double standard that comes with women’s traditional responsibility for preventing pregnancy, and the choices that both sexes make.

The Button! Women Encountering Adversity

This week’s The Button! segment discusses the recently released American Psychological Association’s (APA) new guidelines “to help therapists who treat girls and women”. The Dames share the new guidelines, which sparks a conversation about traditional masculinity in men and expectations of childbirth and marriage that many women are left to work out for themselves.

Spacesuits & Sports Bras

NASA’s Lack Of Smaller Suits Leads To All-Women’s Space Walk Cancellation

It is episode 69! The Dames talk about how an all-woman spacewalk was canceled and their spots were given to men because there were not enough space suits to fit the women. One of the Dames is left completely speechless that this was even allowed to happen at NASA.

Sports Bras & Sexism On The Field

Sports bras are causing issues at Rowan University. The Dames get heated and can’t believe the Rowan University head football coach objectified two women while they were running around the track in sports bras while the football team was practicing. The Dames agree that the outrage from the coach consisted of sexist comments and debate gender equality.

The Button: Sexism and the Right of “No”

The Button segment this week is about a government official, Baudet from the Netherlands. He said that women “do not want you to respect their ‘no’, to respect their resistance. The reality is that women want to be overwhelmed, dominated, yes; want to be overpowered.” The Dames have a strong opinion on Baudet’s sexist comments and the stance that he takes.

Supercalifragilistic-KISS-MY-ASS-adocious!

Just two weeks from the midterm elections and the President has called Stormy Daniels “horseface”. Tracy and Kelly talk about Carly Fiorina’s recent column calling the statement disrespectful but pointing out that women have bigger problems. Then they stop to enjoy some Worthy Cabernet Sauvignon.

In the new segment, “Google News Button,” they talk about Rachel Hundley, a Sonoma, California City Councilwoman who was slut-shamed for her actions as the appointed mayor. Then things get really crazy when they review the recent Business Insider article about the unreal life of Melania Edwards. They don’t appreciate her. At all. Seriously. They kinda hate her. And their very charmed lives are nothing like that bitch’s make-believe fantasy life. (We’re sure she’s actually a lovely person.)

Confidently Strong and Comfortably Soft

Should people be pushing societal boundaries or are traditional roles okay? Tracy and Kelly disagree…unsurprisingly. This week’s episode is brought to you by googling “sexism” and clicking the “News” tab. That leads to a hilarious conversation about “man size Kleenex” and “The Gentleman’s Sandwich“.

In politics (and Crazy Shit People Say), Kelly takes issue with North Dakota’s GOP Senate candidate Kevin Cramer’s characterization of #MeToo is a “movement toward victimization,” and Tracy does not disagree…mostly. On a positive note, Natalie Portman’s comments about toppling the patriarchy get the Dames all fired up.

Courage To Run Redux

With Tracy on the road, Kelly spends this episode with Frieda Edgette talking about the Pink Wave and women running for office. Frieda’s initiative, the Courage To Run race in D.C. and across the country, is the nation’s first nonpartisan run/walk and premier party celebrating the rising wave of women getting civically active and running for office.
