anti-trans athlete bill

TPPP Episode 131 : Pee in a Bottle

Another episode of The Triple Po is upon us, so rejoice oh listeners and watchers! This week Lyman was late again, but not as late as usual, and also we had friend of the show and the beer god himself, Zach from Zachrilege Cast. I tried to put a little structure into the show, and I will try to to do so going forward, because at least it’s a little more bearable when you hear the privileged ramblings of some White dudes.

First we talk about the Boulder shootings, and that insufferable gun nut Lauren Boebert’s ‘thoughts and prayers’ bullshit in response, as well as the ensuing mockery and disbelief among sane folks who are probably not surprised, yet still constantly disgusted by her inane ramblings.

Next we speak about the Amazon employees’ upcoming unionization vote, and the kind of lengths Amazon will go in order that it not happen. We also talk about Amazon’s horrid working conditions and relatively low pay for the area, which of course is the reason they are trying to unionize in the first place!

Last, but certainly not least, is the passage in my glorious state of Tennessee of the anti-trans athlete bill, which would require athletes to compete with the gender that is on their birth certificate. Of course this is only a spate of bills that the state legislatures controlled by the GOP are trying to pass. They say it’s for the children, but we know it’s just yet another hate bill against the LGBT community.

Tough topics to be sure, but we still try to engage the stories with what humor we can. Thanks y’all for tuning in.
