Weekly Roundup: Why Are They Trying Write Trans People Out of Existence?

Brad and Dan are happy to announce that SWAJ is joining the Irreverent Media Group–a collective of podcasts that offers content on deconstruction, rediscovery, and everything in between. We outline the details at the top of the episode. Check out irreverent.fm for more details!

We spend the major segment discussing the 82 anti-trans bills up for vote across the country. Dan shares analysis about how and why the trans body is so disruptive to the Christian nationalist vision of the USA. By using the metaphor of the social domain as a body, it’s clear that Christian nationalists see trans people as an aberration from nature–and thus they are trying write laws that make it almost impossible to acknowledge trans existence, much less trans rights. 

On the second segment, they discuss the Evangelical leaders trying to defend purity culture and how sexual ethics in the Bible is a complex–and often disdainful-thing.
