Backtalk: Police Sexual Assaults and Transphobic Myths

On Backtalk, Sarah and Amy discuss pop culture news of the week. This week, they dig into the disturbing case of police officer Daniel Holtzclaw and discuss the pattern of sexual abuse among police officers. Then, writer Leela Ginelle joins us to discuss the transphobic myths that led to the repeal of an equal rights ordinance in Houston. Plus: Way too much gushing about Aziz Ansari's new show, Master of None

 

Also on Backtalk, we discuss one thing we read, saw, and heard this week.
