Wherein we discuss the uses and abuses of identity politics and the structural nature of oppression.
Show Notes

This week Jenny makes the case that there are "good" and bad types of identity politics and we discuss the redeemable and irredeemable aspects of them. Ultimately, we come to conclusions that are sure to get us canceled by workerists and idpol-libs alike.

Which... doesn't matter because will have all been boiled alive by rising oceans of acidic seawater long before we ever figure any of this out.
