366: Happy Thanksgiving, USMCA, Betsy DeVos’ Title IX Overhaul
Celebrate Thanksgiving by popping your zits with Bryan and Erin on this week’s Throwing Shade! Bryan takes us through the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (aka USMCA), the new North American trade deal being negotiated by the Trump administration, and the obnoxious provisions included that would strip LGBTQ protections from the text. Then, Erin discusses the overhaul to Title IX that Betsy DeVos is spearheading and why narrowing the definition of sexual harassment and allowing alleged perpetrators to cross-examine their own accusers is a fast path to trouble. Plus, recommendations!
