    Gender Roles, Gender Confusion, Gender Wars

    in Politics

    On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will discuss the many variables that causes the breakdown in the relationship between Black men and women. Are we subconscious misogynist and feminist and don't know it and if we are, how does that affect our daily interactions with other Black people? Are Black men and women confused by what their roles are in the present Black family and how does that confusion fuel and contribute to the so-called "Gender War"? Who is at fault for this confusion? How does this confusion snowball into bigger issues that only hurts us yet benefits so-called White Supremacy? The angry Black man vs the angry Black woman? Lets discuss it.

    Gender identity

    in Lifestyle

    So now a days if you are a man you can claim that you identify as a woman and use the women restroom. We have now come to a point as a nation that we award a man for being "courageous" and calling him "brave and stunning" for turning himself into a woman. And when said guy identifies as a woman you must refer to him as "her" or else be labeled a misogynist.

    It's things like this that is making America the shithole that it is now. And now we have teachers at the kindergarden level asking kids if they identify as a boy or girl. They don't want to call a girl a girl or a boy a boy for that might offend them if they don't identify as the sex they are born as.

    This now makes people question their "gender identity". "I'm I really a boy....or am I a girl?" If you can't tell what sex you are by looking at your genitals then there's a problem. And that's why we are going to tackle this issue tonight. We will be talking about a few people that have "gender identity" issues and try to examine why these people are having these issues.

    So set back....relax....and enjoy The Jason Echolls Podcast!!

    Ethics of the Aquarium Trade

    in Environment

    Join Ray Owczarzak in welcoming an old friend Doug Ludemann.  Doug and I worked together a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.  (Sorry for the reference). Doug has years of experience in the public and private aquarium fields and currently owns and operates Fish Geeks. 


    I’ve wanted to do a show on the ethical issues involved in the aquarium hobby and field for some time.  When I first began my pet trade career at the age of 16 at a small mom and pop shop in Illinois, I was wide eyed and ignorant to the dark side of the trade.  I sold snake head after snake head destined for home tanks without any thought about the possible impacts.  Now that I live in Maryland, where the snake head makes advances year after year in waterways, I wonder about my past actions.


    What other dark secrets are there in the aquarium hobby?  I think, in retrospect, that any financial endeavor that requires the sale of live animals inherently has a few dark secrets.  In fact, they are too numerous to mention in an hour show, but we will give it a shot. 


    Don’t get me wrong, I believe that the industry and hobby have many ethical companies and the preponderance of hobbyists are top notch.  But as the saying goes, a few bad apples…  Hopefully the discussion will provide some food for thought on the businesses that listeners use.  Making ethical choices are up to the end consumer.  We as a people have the best chance at guiding the future.  So don’t just sit back be a Witness, but make a change for the better.  As always, I hope that people join in the conversation and call in with thoughts and stories.

    PMP: The Gender Binary in Modern Paganism - A Panel Discussion

    in Spirituality

    Join RevKess and Kalisara as we host a panel of authors and group organizers to talk about Gender Binary in modern Paganism. In Paganism, most often Wicca, this manifests as the idea that there is a balance of Goddess and God that must be considered. However, many see this as having emotional and psychological effects, particularly for those who identify as gender-queer or gender-fluid.


    Our panelists are:



    Hollis Taylor, publisher of DiversiTree.org, & Holistic Yogi & Life Coach. (ne/nem/nir/nirs/nemself)
    Jaina Bee, priestx of CAYA Coven, & co-founder of CAYA’s Rainbow Moon Circle. (e/em/eir/emself)
    Melissa ra Karit, feminist, activist, and writer at Everyday Sacred and Beyond the Binary blog. (ze/zir/zir)
    Kitsune, genderqueer Initiate in CAYA's Wildflower tradition. (they/them/theirs)
    Lindsey Williams, feminist & author of Motherhood. (she/her/hers)
    P. Sufenas Virius Lupus, founder of Ekklesía Antínoou, author & blogger at Aedicula Antinoi & Speaking of Syncretism. (e/em/eir/eirs/emself)

    TS Radio: Author, Nancy Madore on the Ethics of Judge Nadeau

    in Current Events

     Hosted by Marti Oakley & Debbie Dahmer


    Guest:  Nancy Madore author,   The Ethics of Judge Nadeau  


    The Ethics of Judge Nadeau is the TRUE story of a judge who presides over York County Probate Court in York, Maine. The premise of the book is that—in spite of the Maine Board of Overseers' rulings to the contrary—the behavior of Judge Robert M.A. Nadeau is unethical. Referencing real exhibits, orders and depositions in actual court cases, The Ethics of Judge Nadeau provides a bird’s eye view into the logic and reasoning behind behavior so incredible it will take your breath away. This candid and (often) humorous account of Robert Nadeau’s antics (in and out of the courtroom) is as entertaining as it is shocking. 


    The Ethics of Judge Nadeau is based on the premise that there are some things a lawyer should never do—especially if he’s a judge—because they are either unethical, illegal, or just plain wrong.


    Links to actual court documents, depostions, court orders, and BAR findings can be found here:


    http://www.nmadore.com/links


    How can anyone read through these documents and not be enraged at the abuse of this particular judge and the cover-up by the BAR oversight boards which have condonned his outrageous behavior.  This is a cover-up!  And this so-called "judge" is still sitting on the bench!

    Does Gender Matter in 2016 ?

    in Politics

    Political scientists spend a lot of time studying representation. Do women elected to Congress or state legislatures better represent issues that women voters care about, such as parental leave policies or reproductive rights? Do countries with more women in executive or legislative offices behave differently from countries with fewer women in these positions? .Sara Mitchell is professor of political science and department chair at the University of Iowa.


    Show Notes:


    The third edition of Gender and Elections offers a systematic, lively, and multifaceted account of the role of gender in the electoral process through the 2012 elections. This timely yet enduring volume strikes a balance between highlighting the most important developments for women as voters and candidates in the 2012 elections and providing a more long-term, in-depth analysis of the ways that gender has helped shape the contours and outcomes of electoral politics in the United States"American politics cannot be understood without attention to the role of gender in electoral dynamics. Women’s influence in U.S. elections continues to expand - as voters, candidates, and officeholders. Though still facing obstacles in their path to electoral success, women are transforming American politics, even in their pursuit of the elusive office of the presidency.
