Episode 79 – Revisiting Sex & Gender: Sandi Glahn

sandi-glahnThis week we have one of our all time favorite guests back on the show: Dr. Sandi Glahn. Sandi first joined us on episode 17, where we talked about the origins and evolution of gender stereotypes. We return to the basics of feminism, revisiting the differences between sex and gender, a common conflation we’ve all noticed recently. We discuss other topics including sexism in mainstream media, harassment, and assless-chaps.

Sandi joins us as we WRaP up our week, talking about what we’re Watching, Reading, and Playing. You can take a guess what social game Rhonda & Sandi get me hooked into playing again!

We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. Do you have an example of someone misusing the terms sex or gender? Got a great recommendation for us to WRaP about? Let us know!

Until next time, game on!

Regina & Rhonda

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.
