Debunking Marginalization & Meritocracy Myths w/ @MistressMatisse & @traceylross — #KatieSpeakShow Ep36 05/14/2016

In brief: I’m a big fan of debunking myths and amplifying conversations that make all the right people uncomfortable. This episode features Mistress Matisse sharing some 101 on sex work — decriminalization vs legalization — and a bit of how the persecution of sex workers relates to other areas where the supposed “protection of women” is used to cover up marginalization and injury. Also on the show, Tracey Ross from the Center for American Progress and Talk Poverty Radio tears down the myth of meritocracy in the tech sector. Turns out the only people getting funding to launch their ideas are rich, white, male drop outs from Harvard.

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation through PAYPAL. Thank…
