This is the fourth episode of Feminist Frequency’s new series, The FREQ Show! With The FREQ Show, we’re answering the question, “What do representations of race, gender and sexuality in pop culture have to do with our current social and political climate?”
In “The Bathroom Battlefield,” we explore the frustrating history of representations of transgender characters in the media, and the effect those representations have had on popular misconceptions of trans identity. We also analyze how those misconceptions have lead to some truly appalling attacks on the civil rights of trans people.
