Back in March, it was reported that very anti – queer and very married Tennessee LT. Governor Randy McNally was caught using his main instagram account to interact with sexually suggestive social media posts belonging to the account of a much younger queer man. Despite his very firm stance on banning drag in Tennessee, McNally was “outed” publically.
Outing is defined as disclosing information on a person’s sexuality, gender, health, etc. without their permission and consent, and on this week’s episode, hosts Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill pose the question: Is it ever acceptable to “out” or disclose information about a person without their knowledge or consent? The two discuss their experiences with being outed in the past, and the repercussions. They also get into the differences between “DL”, “Discreet” and “Masc”, and how correcting someone using the wrong pronouns may not always be safe.
But first, thoughts on Jill Biden’s buffoonery with LSU’s women’s basketball team.
Hosts jarrett hill and Tre’vell Anderson define outing as disclosing information on a person’s sexuality, gender, health, etc. without their permission and consent, and dive into the repercussions of outing.

Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and jarrett hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
