Gender Blender on 05/19/09

Air date: 
Tue, 05/19/2009 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Short Description: 
Intersex activists talk about sex, gender and unneccesary surgery

"Is it a boy or a girl?"

It's the first question asked after the birth of a baby.  But sometimes the answer isn't obvious. In about one out of every 1,500 births a child is born so noticeably atypical in terms of genitalia that a specialist is called in. Out of every thousand birth one to two children have traditionally been exposed to surgery to "normalize" the appearance of their genitals. Even more people are born with subtler forms of sex anatomy variations some of which won't show up until later in life.
 
Since the 1990s intersex activists have been fighting for an end to unnecessary surgeries, especially those performed at an early age when the person can’t make their own decisions.
 
Tuesday, May 19th, Gender Blender host  Jacob Anderson-Minshall  talked with three guests about the intersex experience and what it can teach us about gender, sex and the medialization of natural diversity.

First Day as Assistant Youth Advocate!

Categories:

Today went suprisingly smoother than anticipated! Some talented youngsters from the Young Ladies Radio Project came down to the station to interview people from the community about Food and Food in Emergencies. Two of the ladies went for a stroll to aquire more audio for a vox pop.

I can't wait to hear the finished interviews that these ladies create! They interviewed this guy from the City of Portland who helps coordinate stuff in emergency situations- he was really animated and full of fascinating information. Before we started recording he made a comment that the Government doesn't help people- thats not what it does and thats not what it was ever meant to do. I'm a little disappointed that we don't have that recorded :)

Positively Revolting on 05/08/09

Host Ani will speak with long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen.

Host Ani will speak with long time activist, author and professor Robert Jensen.

In Jensen's latest book, All My Bones Shake: Seeking a Progressive Path to the Prophetic Voice, he argues that in a world racked with political, economic, cultural, and ecological crises, there is a spiritual emptiness that encourages further alienation. 

Can religion be a tool with which we may create closer ties to all humanity and begin to create a just and sustainable society? What part can religion play to help us face with confidence the uncertainty of our lives.

Jensen's writings explore the important questions What does it mean to be human? What are our obligations to other people and the non-human world? and, How do we create meaning in a world that appears to be playing a cosmic joke on us -- a world that gives us consciousness, the capacity for complex thought, and language with which to express those thoughts, but then denies us any obvious answer to the question, “Who am I and how do I fit into the bigger picture?”

Tryin this out!

Guess Who's Coming to Radio??!! playlist for 04/30/2009

Air date: 
04/30/2009

all this month we have been exploring aspects of mental and emotional healing and ways to cope in this world...  tonight we focused on the suicides of carl joseph walker hoover and jaheem harrera, two 11 year olds who were taunted and assaulted to the point where they felt they needed to take their own lives... 

we explored the idea of social perceptions in relation to peer-to-peer abuse (and how these perceptions contribute to the perpetuation of the cycle of violence); how the school system may or may not be intervening in ways which assist children being abused by their peers and/or adults; and, how communities can connect and heal in these situations.
