  1. One of the first TBGWT shows I ever listened to happened to be an excellent test to measure if this show was for me. I had the podcast playing in my headphones while I was packing up and moving out of my apartment. That was the day Chill and DJ Mike Hitman were on together, and there was so much going on that I had to listen to it again later that night when I wasn’t distracted. After that greatness, been with you guys ever since. Congrats on the 5 year show anniversary, looking forward to the 10th.

  2. i’m not of the belief that people *have to* identify or label themselves. Kaley doesn’t have to see herself as a feminist anymore than Raven has to see herself as African-American. in fact, celebs identifying as “feminist” usually opens up more doors to scrutiny of just how much they are or aren’t in line with feminism based on ridiculously arbitrary criteria. there’s really no win in the who-wants-to-be-a-feminist? name game.

    what i did find odd and a bit troubling, however, was Kaley’s explanation, saying, “I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that’s because I’ve never really faced inequality.” is it necessary to directly face inequality to demand equality? or to identify yourself as some one who supports the cause for equality? if that’s the case, women, Blacks, immigrants, LGBTQ, and lefties are doomed.

    Kaley goes on to say she likes doing old fashioned things like cook for her husband because it makes her feel like a housewife, as if that’s anti-feminist. as if a woman catering to her partner somehow precludes her from being eligible to demand equality? i think too often women and men treat feminism likes it’s a bad word – that to be a feminist, you have to hate men and reject any notion of being submissive or accomodating to men. though there are those who perpetuate that, feminism is a bit more nuanced than that. just ask Beyonce!

    whether a person connects the support/demand for gender equality to the term feminism or not isn’t important. but to act as if feminism is some far-fetched concept that can’t be grasped because you’re too far removed seems lazy to me.

  3. I have a few questions about this idea of “CEO slut shaming”:

    1.) If Fox News is claiming that the government is “slut-shaming” CEOs, then aren’t they admitting, more or less, that most CEOs are sluts?

    2.) That one dude on the panel that was talking about how, as a CEO, he was the one worried about receivables and blah-blah-blah, how he deserved all the money because he worked so hard…then why the fuck are you on TV whining? Shouldn’t you be in the office pouring over the balance sheet right now? Or is that a job for that intern you hired to work for free, while you’re out golfing, making TV appearances, and having dinner at pricey steak houses?

    Yes, many CEOs do work hard, and make a lot of decisions, but for all the lionizing of Jack Welch and Six Sigma industrial philosophy that they do; would any of these mofos survive a week on the front lines of their respective corporations, with the way they’ve decided to run them, and the paltry pay and benefits they give those workers?

    3.) Finally, CEOs ask the front line to sacrifice all the time. Sacrifice time off, pay raises, benefits, health care, retirement, promotions; all so the corporation (read: stockholders) can thrive. But when they’re asked to make a sacrifice for the good of the country, let alone their own damn employees, they whine about how hard it is in these streets for the CEOs? In summary: corporations can take almost anything they want from their workers, and Fox News couldn’t give a fuck. But the IRS asking CEOs to come up off of some dollars and put in on this nation’s growth? HELL NAW.
