"I am done modulating my emotions to protect you from my rage"

Oct 11, 2018, 06:45 PM

In this episode, we are done. Done done done.

The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation process is over but we are just getting started. We talk about why calls for civility in the wake of injustice are often calls to silence underrepresented voices. We discuss the fact that so many white women were galvanized to support the Kavanaugh nomination, and why that points to the need for more women leaders in religious spaces.

And we feed our rage with some family-size bags of Peanut M&Ms.
