There was a time when the term feminism meant social equality between the genders. There was also a time when the streets were safe, the air was clean, and livable wages were commonplace. Sadly, those days are long gone. But join us as we sift through the wreckage of the women’s movement with an emphasis on its third wave phase and all of its infighting, contradictions, false conclusions, hysteria, fabrications, and the various thin-skinned reactions that come to loosely define this anything-goes collective.

In this episode, we explore the culture of offendedness, why they’re offended, and what that means to the rest of us. Later in the program, we’ll speak with a former Playboy executive regarding that publication’s recent move to eliminate nudity and why that might be. Then, we’ll conclude with some thoughts on censorship from a now deceased rock musician and iconoclast, one who often had the final word on why free speech matters more than hurt feelings.
