On this week’s Throwing Shade, Bryan discusses J.K. Rowling’s ignorant and regressive tweetstorm (and subsequent essay) about what she believes constitutes ‘womanhood’. Then, Erin explains why protesting can be far more dangerous for women due to the unexpected effects that tear gas has on the female reproductive system.

Throwing Shade is raising money for The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, "created to elevate, support, and nourish the voices of BLACK trans people."Donate to the YumRaiser at this link: https://bit.ly/2YvhhXm C’mon family, let’s put some yum into this yuck together.
