MK 312: Lil Nas X Saves the Day (Simone Biles, Scar Jo vs. Disney, Womens Sports Outfits, Ed Buck & Murder of Black Queer Men, Lil Nas X vs DaBaby, Homophobia in Hip Hop)

Episode 312

6th August 2021

Sexism is raging in our faces from the Olympics to Scar Jo vs. Disney. In the main korner it’s the blend of classism and privilege, and racism and homophobia all intersecting in the conviction of Ed Buck murderer of Queer Black men. DaBaby’s homophobia of our beloved Lil Nas X is showing just how much further hip-hop has to go.

Episode notes

Samantha Nzessi is back – which is good because we need to break down all this sexism that is raging in our faces. From the outfits they make women wear in sports, to letting Simone Biles take care of her mental health to do what she needs to do, and in the entertainment world Scar Jo vs. Disney. In the main korner it is a news story that is the blend of classism and privilege, and racism and homophobia all intersecting in the conviction of Ed Buck murderer of Queer Black men. Samantha as usual sends us through a deep dive of the fuckery of Hip-Hop, which we love, but need to callout and this time it’s DeBaby and his comments and views of our beloved Lil Nas X who is challenging us all of our own fears and insecurities.
