Quick Episode Summary

  • Zinnia Introduction 2:22
  • Sam Harris vs. Ben Affleck guest starring Islamophobia at 24:19
  • Paulina Angel “California Baby” & Closing remarks at 32:45

Zinnia has been making atheist videos for years, in fact it was her and Rebecca Watson (of skepchick.org) that helped me overcome my fear of hell, the last stumbling block on my road to accepting my own lack of god belief.  Zinnia has also been documenting her bodily transition, and sharing it with the world.  She has never been one to shy away from a camera, is never afraid to eloquently posit her opinion, and (very important for this episode) represents a positive expression of a sex positive culture.

Zinnia goes over many topics such as:

  • Sex after transition – from the position of someone who has transitioned
  • Why so many cis-het men fetishize people who are transgender
  • Where you can find transgender porn online – that was not made for cis-het men
  • Discussion of intercourse & the uniqueness of bodies
  • Sex toy recommendations
  • Other projects Zinnia is working on
  • Transgender parenting

Zinnia also provided me with a plethora of links to share with you:

After Zinnia I move over to Sam Harris, which makes sense, because Sam made me so f’ing mad.

A couple of weeks ago Sam Harris was on Real Time with Bill Maher, and the two of them got into a heated debate with Ben Affleck, who called them out on the “gross and racist” opinions of Islam.  You can watch the link for yourself here: http://vimeo.com/108354205 I get a little preachy and paternalistic, and for that I apologize.  If you disagree with me, feel free to let me know.  You have my email, my phone, but I’m also on twitter @transatheistpod and you can comment on episodes on the show page www.trans-atheist.net or Facebook at www.facebook.com/transatheistpod

Finally the show ends with music from Paulina Angel, and the single off her latest album Saturday Mornings Around the Pool, “California Baby”  Paulina was recently interviewed over on The Queer Life, episode 6 on September 5, 2014.  You can hear the whole episode here: http://www.thequeerlife.org/2014/09/03/episode-006-paulina-angel/

And that’s all I have for you this episode.
Wait!  I also have a fantastic joke!
Why did the rabbit plumber eat her lunch under the sink?  Because that’s where she found the leek!
Oh the jokes just keep getting better and better!
