Articles and quotes:

Perhaps more than anything, though, women are simply under-educated about masturbation. High school sex ed classes very rarely teach students about the anatomy of the vagina—or clitoris—or even mention pleasure.”

 “This way of treating female sexuality  as a taboo throughout history has served as a way of exerting control over women, taking advantage of the way they are alienated and even ashamed from their own bodies

In episode 26 of CC, we wanted to highlight and bring to light the recent case of Vanessa Guillen.

We dove deep into the details of her case, sexual assault/sexual harassment in the military specifically, as well as in society. There is a link in our linktree to Vanessa’s gofundme and the petition to sign for the #iamvanessagullien bill, please check them out!

Ep.24 "The African in You They Tried to Erase"
52:59

Hello my beautiful people, now that we as a society are discussing and confronting anti-blackness in our society and cultures, we thought it would be an appropriate time for us to dissect and question this very issue. In "The African in You They Tried to Erase", we highlight the history of both Afro-Mexicans and Afro-Colombians and how in the world it took a pandemic, national wide protests and the Afro-Latinx movement for us to talk about the importance of black people in our cultures. Take a shot every time we sigh, yell, and stumble on our words in disbelief on what we found - we got really passionate! We also added a link in our linktree for all things Black Lives Matter, so go check that out!

We are joining #podcastblackout to be a voice among many in brining light and honor to the black lives that have been lost to police brutality and law enforcement. Please listen to their names, feel the value of their lives, and realize once in for all that there is no peace if there is no justice. Stay safe.
