    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.

    Robert Siciliano--Tis The Season For Identity Theft and Scams #31

    in Current Events

    Noted identity theft expert and bestselling author Robert Siciliano joined us to discuss the Identity Theft Epidemic. Christmas Time is notorious for all sorts of scams. With the advent of chipped credit and debit cards, new scams have been created to take advantage of the consumer confusion created by this technology. Beware of banks calling you to discuss your new card. It's an opening to get your private info. Also beware of phony websites for charities and retailers, created just for the purpose of stealing your data. Awareness is the key to keeping you and your data safe this holiday season.

    The Human Agenda; Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity

    in Spirituality

    THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity with author Joe Wenke


    Despite the progress in the movement toward marriage equality, the LGBTQI community continues to face difficult, and often heartbreaking, odds. Gay and lesbian youth are four times more likely than their peers to attempt suicide. Nearly half of transgender teens have contemplated suicide and a quarter has made an attempt, according to The Trevor Project. Adoption equality and second-parent rights are still blocked in many states, and legislators in Oklahoma and Alabama have tried to introduce laws that make it legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians. Perhaps most disturbing of all, homicide rates for transgender women account for 45 percent of all hate murders, according to GLAAD.


    Joe Wenke thinks there is a better way. By opening up discussions about our shared humanity and experiences, Wenke is getting people to talk with, not at, each other and leaving the rancor and divisiveness behind, beginning with his book THE HUMAN AGENDA: Conversations about Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity. For this collection of frank conversations about growing up, coming out, finding your identity, family, marriage, parenting, careers and so much more.

    Thomas Ruskin--Chips Are No Guarantee That Your Credit Card/Identity Is Safe #28

    in Current Events

    Former NYPD Detective Thomas Ruskin joined us today for an update on identity theft trends. Chipped credit and debit cards were supposed to be the cure all to credit card skimmers and scanners that have become rampant. However, my brand new chipped card was cloned and used in a grocery store in Illinois. To my bank's credit they caught it after two relatively small charges. I was sitting in a restaurant in New Orleans when the crime struck and I received a text informing me of the deed. Hopefully more secure measures will be implemented soon. 


    And most importantly go to KeepMyID.org and use the value code FSN2.

    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)

    A Whole New World - Breaking Free From Identity

    in Spirituality

    Many if not most people consider that their identity is solid, clear and fixed. In fact, our  identity is one of most cherished of human concerns and attachments. Identity is very important to us. Who others are means a lot, too. However, given the experience we are born into an identity, told who we are by our parents, family and greater culture, and there is very little control we have over what our identity is.


    Until some of us come to an understanding that identity is not fixed, that it can and does change and we have the right and means to change it on purpose. Though our society and varioius cultural norms might have a hard time coping with a change we make in our identities, that in itself is not a reason to argue against it. If a person has a reason to make any changes to their identity, that is up to them.


    Identity is made up of many different things: our species, biological sex, our outward expression of gender, groups we identify with and feel attached to, our age, even our names. I have experienced identity issues throughout my life, early on because of how my body looked and how others treated me for being fat and - in my eyes - looking more like a girl. Later, I gained clarity on what race I was, and what that meant to not be white like the boy on "Family Affair," even though I thought I looked like him. After puberty, I learned about diverse views on sexual identity, and wavered (to this day) in between a few of them. Now, it matters only to the degree that I'm at ease in my existence, flexible from moment to moment about who I say that I am, and what I consider myself. It's my choice, after all.
