Touching: Appropriate or Not?
Joe Biden’s habit of touching of hair and shoulders has the Dames talking (again) about physical contact. They explore what is appropriate and what isn’t, and discuss the option of speaking up when one does or does not like to be touched (even handshakes and hugs!). It is well known that physical touch is a human need, so The Dames pose the question: What does it mean for social interactions in the future that women often don’t want to be touched?
The Button: It’s The Sexism, Stupid
This week’s sexist talk is all about media coverage of women presidential candidates. Sadly, this topic is not going away anytime soon. However, the Dames point out that it is a circular problem: In order to get media coverage you have to be dominating the polls, but in order to dominate the polls you have to have media coverage. How can a woman succeed at both?
Beto Entitlement Bullshit
The Dames discuss a recent article in the Boston Globe titled “Woman’s Prayer”. The prayer is written from a woman’s perspective and describes each of the “notable” Democratic men running for office. It’s hilarious but sad.
