"The basis on which this this program is built, it's an architecture er. Of solidity and principles that never change. And that's one of the reasons the show has done so well over time, and why it's so important because the principles have never changed. I heard Marc Stein was given incredibly brilliant soliloquy on that that the principal's never changed. One of the principles of the program. Was rushed, explained it all these years is to never, ever ever give into the idea of being a victim. Never do it. This program, the host their of rush Was given a medal of freedom. And he was in the free speech business. And he loved us talking someone on TV. I'd be yesterday that Russia would remind people I'm in the free speech business. I had heard that after 9 11 when companies were banning playing this or that song rush, it would put it to the bumper rotation. Um, drop a bomb on you, like by Tom Petty. Would say I'm in the free speech business. The program succeeded because it's it was entertaining and informative, and because it offered a place for actual information in the face of the lies from the Mockingbird media, but something else This program slowed the march of leftism. Like nothing in history. Because it was such a potent counter to the Mockingbird media. We talked yesterday. I think it was Jared from Kentucky who had been victimized by NPR. And then after The election started to listen to this program with rush hosting and saying Wait a minute. There's another side to these things. Folks. There's that phrase Red Pilling. We're watching it. Glenn Greenwald is a left leaning journalist. A gay man in a partnership with another gay man. They've got Children. Glenn started. I think it's it was the dispatch. You get kicked out of his own newspaper because he wanted to cover the media's non coverage of Hunter Biden. He is not not saying that he's becoming a conservative or anything like it. But I'm saying that he's waking up to the reality of the deep state, which rush was one of the first people to describe for us the deep state. To put a name to it and explain it. And a lot of people when they heard that, so don't wait. Shadow government Russian never met that They're right here. Right in front of us. Bureaucracies. Glenn Greenwald is waking up to this. You have radical feminists like make Megan Murphy waking up to wait a minute. The left wants to do what with Children and women's rights and they want to erase them. Those people are also in the free speech business. This program stalled the march of leftism. You stalled the march of leftism, and I want to remind people of something. I am aware that HR one This so called for the People Act is ridiculous. Federal takeover of elections. If that passes, we're in the most dire of possible circumstances. If they packed the Supreme Court's We're in the most dire of possible circumstances in this we don't need to win this second. The left is already beginning to eat the left. We need to continue to stall them What we have great governors like Ron De Santis and Greg Abbott. And Christy Nome in many ways, great governor who are standing up to the march of the left, We're going to be a Second Amendment Sanctuary zone. They are Protesting. Protest ng And we have never seen the left. Let's a legitimate protest go unmolested. It is always turned into a drive for power for the elites. Every time communism is no different look at the trees. Collier's the co founder of Black Lives matter incorporated, purchasing at $1.4 Million home. That's a good She's a well trained Marxist. The Marxist leaders always get that look at the Castros. They take what people believe is legitimate. Communism is not legitimate, but they take it is legitimate and say This is for the people's rights. It's hijacked in the elites end up in charge. Conservatism's the opposite of this that if we win you win. And like I said, Rush, said he was in the free speech business. The show was entertaining with him. It was informative with him like no other. And it was also an ongoing protest against leftism. But unlike the left theft of legitimate protests, Russia show was never hijacked. Minneapolis police didn't arrest the officers involved. Not very soon. Well, you know, the George Floyd story. So legitimate protests and they were legitimate. Legitimate anger legitimate we've had it up to here. Hijacked Legitimate protests. They came opportunities. For rioters, looters. And T for what began his protests. Became hijacked by organized leftist organizations who were They were allowed to push out of work. Protesters from protest to anarchy. There was looting before Antifa arrived, but nothing like we saw over the weekend. And while this is going on, you had to look Far and wide to find any leadership. In cities and states National Guard should have been activated as soon as the first riots began. It was stunning to me how many nights in a row this went on. And every night here comes television, whatever network to televise it like it was its own sporting event. With very little serious effort engaged in two Stop it. Blue State governors let fires burn. Business district's were damaged. Even the Mayor of Atlanta had had enough one on TV and said, Just stop she ripped into these people's that you didn't do this after Martin Luther King was assassinated. Which Is true. You go back to 1968. The Democrats lost big because they were seen as tied to this stuff, and I'm gonna tell you Republicans out there. If you're worried about the election in November, don't be just figure out a way to tie all of this to the Democrat Party because that's where it's home is What you're watching and all these blue states When you watch these riots, you are watching the Democratic Party's chickens come home to roost. This is what the Democrat Party has been guaranteeing will happen for 50 years. They've been lying to their voters. They have been lying to the American people. They've been making all of these exorbitant promises that never can come true. And every time that becomes obvious. What do you love doing? Blaming Republicans for people's misery. Blaming Republicans for whatever racism, bigotry, homophobia. Whatever else is out there, blame the Republicans for it. And they always get away with that because of their sick of it. Buddies in the media. But this is.

"This week Canada's largest library system is rapidly losing support from some of its biggest champions authors a number of them have threatened to abstain from the Toronto Public Library and its events in the future because of the libraries decision to rent out space for Megan Murphy Miss Murphy is Vancouver based writer known for her opposition to legislation promoting transgender rights vickery balls is Toronto City Librarian his bulls did you know Megan Murphy would be part of this event before you rented out the space we did absolutely we knew that we have a rigorous process for when we do our room bookings and part of that process is establishing what the purpose of the meeting is so we did review that before we allowed the booking to take place and you knew that Ms Murphy has argued that Trans women should not be allowed into women's locker rooms bathrooms prisons and that allowing people to self declared their legal gender will nullify women's rights you knew of that yes yes we did we knew we were well aware of the Vancouver Public Library controversy where making Murphy was allowed to speak and the room rental purpose was to have an educational and open discussion on the concept of gender identity and it's legislation ramifications on women in Canada so this is a a feminist group that book the room and they're Invited speaker with me is making Murphy and so we were aware of that she has said see TV news she said that trans identify people really need services and programs specific to them to say that people who identifies Trans Women are female is not true because they're not and you you can't change biological sex so so this was the purpose of this to look at the what does it mean for society the law and women it wasn't an educational session was it this is someone who who says that if these rights should not exist is that not the case well this is a discussion that's happening at a branch of the Toronto Public Library but it's also part of a much larger discussion that's happening in the larger community what does that discussion of the suicides of that discussion I am not here to talk but the two sides of that discussion I am here to stand up for free speech and you know as a public library and a public institution we have an obligate Asian to protect free speech we have the same rules when we have for our collections when we select books for collection when we have our programs we apply the same rules to our room bookings and we are a democratic institution and we're standing up for free speech people in the community on social media have been were describing this as hate speech if there was something there that was being said that was illegal then there would be there are larger authorities than us that would be as responding to this we've got the Canadian civil liberties associating speaking out in support of our decision we have James Turk at the center for free expression at Ryerson University posting a blog post in support of her decision and this has not been easy but I for one I am standing up for free speech and I am I will not back down sometimes what we call free speech is hurtful speech and we have situation as you know the numbers guarded about twenty percent of Trans people have been physically or sexually assaulted due to their identity I even more have been verbally threatened or harassed so are you safe guard their them physically and their rights if you feel that it's it's within others rights to express expense ideas that deny those people are rights that actually go the distance of making them feel more isolated well I am committed and the library is coming offering safe and welcoming space for everyone including members of the Trans Community and we're aware that the you know the upcoming room rentals has caused anger and concern and hurt on my members of the Trans Community and others but as a public library is a public institution we have I'm an obligation to stand up for democratic values and principles are there any limits to who you would rent the space to I mean if a Holocaust denier or a white supremacist able to speak it when you're facilities well you may recall we H- we we had a neo Nazi group a few years ago rent one of our facilities and we allowed would it and that was for memorial service it is based on the the purpose of the booking if the purpose of the booking is going to result in eight speech or a discussion about hate speech no we will not allow it but it has to be you know based on that very high bar that is established by the the Criminal Code of Canada so as far as you're concerned unless somebody is charged with a hate speech you don't have that that that's your standard that's your Dr for when someone would not be allowed to speak at one your facilities if it's going to be illegal it's not just hate speech there's something that is illegal that that would be a result of which is why we look very carefully at the purpose of the meeting library workers the Union workers have they are very upset about this they say that the staff has worked very hard to build trust in the community to create a safe and inclusive space for the community and this they feel this is damaging to that well you know this is about free speech and and and you know I I I think that it's important to understand that when you're defending free speech there are times when there are people in the community when you protect free speech you're also allowing civic discourse to happen and it leads to oftentimes better understanding and greater acceptance and tolerance in society there are limits to free speech I'm sure you know that and when free speech is hurtful or harmful to others it is it is something that is shutting down the free speech of others I'm sure you've heard that argument before yes I have obviously no I don't I think the free speech it's important especially when marginalized groups are being people are trying to shut down marginalized groups marginalized groups being those who'd deny the rights of those trans people who are who are were feeling this is hurtful so what about those minority rights what consideration are you giving to those minority rights well we're giving everyone consideration in this situation and we've strongly value our relationship with all members of our communities here in Toronto and elsewhere but we have to you know if public institutions aren't going to stand up for free speech and allow civil discourse to happen then I don't know when we're that is going to happen how do you think a trans person would feel sitting in the people and other people who are very supportive of us but they don't want their voices to be out there they asked us to keep it in confidence and keep their their communication to us in confidence because they they just don't want reprisal on social media so I think that I think that you know to be honest we've about thirds of the comments we've heard are asking us to cancel the event but about a third of them are supporting us in terms of believing in free speech the mayor of Toronto believes in free speech but he has asked you to not hold this event will you reconsider I'm I'm I'm not going to reconsider not supporting free speech no I'm standing up for speech free speech Leavitt Emma's bullets thank you thank you so much vickery bowls is Toronto's city librarian we reached her in Toronto Megan Murphy sent us a statement it reads in part quote many women have very serious concerns about the impact of gender identity legislation on women and girls and deserve the chance to be heard it is unconscionable that the mayor of Toronto would attempt to pressure the T. p. l. to cancel this event unquote for more

"I'm old enough to remember when Republicans pretended to care about the debt I'm old enough to remember when conservatives pretended to care about the deficit, but the the US budget deficit, according to Bloomberg has now widened to three hundred ten billion dollars in the first four months of the fiscal year. Underscoring according to Bloomberg the revenue hit from a public tax cuts and an increase in government spending. It ended about the tax cuts. Getting it's about spending the budget gap widened Seventy-seven percent, why older seats fell by two percents. One point one trillion dollars seems like a solid amount of money to take in. Does it not but spending rose nine percent one point four trillion dollars? So the budget did receive a tiny bump in customs duties about twenty five billion dollars, but the US trade gap widened, which by the way shows that that president from straight policies economically. Ignorance the economy has continued to boom because the trade deficit is not a good indicator of whether or not is booming or not the trade deficit usually means that people in America can afford foreign products. So we are buying them. Also, President Trump actually exacerbated the trade deficit made it worse. Why? Because by pushing the idea that tariffs were going to clamp in at the beginning of twenty nineteen. He forced a bunch of businesses to buy products early from foreign countries. So it actually accelerated the trade deficit with all of that said, it would be really nice. If Republicans would not be Democrats, we already have. Democrats. We don't need another Democratic Party. Okay. Meanwhile, I feel like I really need to comment on a great exchange that happened yesterday on Joe Rogan's podcast for those Joe Rogan's podcast. You should give it a listen. It's really a lot of fun. Joe's great question. So Joe and Tempur who is one of his sidekicks Joe and Tim questioning some members of the Twitter clans Jack Dorsey showed up on Joe Rogan's podcast. And Joe Rogan asked him the hard question. He asked him. Why isn't the ban some people, but not other people in Twitter had no answer whatsoever. We have a divide between the conservative estimation of what's happening. And then the definition that's the liberal definition of it. I think that's right jail. And I think what I'm trying to say is that it's not that. You can't have those viewpoints. It's a if you're taking those viewpoints in your targeting at them out of specific person in a way that reflects your intend to abuse and harass them. What if it's in the context of the conversation, what if she saying that I don't think that trans women should be allowed in these females spaces to make decisions for women, and then this person's arguing and she says a woman is biologically female. You are never going to be a woman. She responded with men aren't women though. And that was her first in the series of events. That's what got her the suspension, and the warning that was one of many tweets that right of providing context, it was not, okay. The the woman who speaking is the Gaddi who's the company's global lead for legal policy and trust and safety. And that's Joe Rogan asking specifically about Megan Murphy, who's been a guest on our show. Megan Murphy, of course, is a feminist. She's they left wing. Feminist was banned from Twitter for making the absolutely obvious contention. That men are not women and women are not men Twitter claim that this was targeting of particular transgender people, and Joe Rogan, and Tim pool are pointing out how dumb this is that Twitter has no consistent standard..

"All right. So meanwhile, Twitter and social media are obviously biased against non left do points. And Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey is doubling down on the restrictiveness of social media. He said in an interview last week that the company could no longer afford to take a neutral stance anymore. So he was asked by Sam Harris is a fellow member of the intellectual dark web. Nice guy. Why Twitter's bans and suspensions always seemed to reliably land on one side of the political divide and Sam pointed out that Megan Murphy who we had on the show yesterday is now suing Twitter for having banned her over saying that men are men and women are women endorse. He said I don't believe that we can afford to take a neutral stance anymore. I don't believe that we should optimize for neutrality later in the podcast doors mentioned the Murphy, Dan, again, he said the case you brought up. I'm not sure what was behind that. But I certainly don't believe it was that one tweet, although they've provided no evidence as to why xactly she was. So again, Megan. Lost a powerful outlet for viewpoint because Twitter takes political stances. Dorsey also, dodged a question about the first amendment Harris had asked him, why Twitter couldn't just ban actual violence speech? And then allow other forms of speech Dorsey said Twitter's policies followed the spirit of the first amendment, but not really considering that both HAMAs and Hezbollah terrorist organizations continue to operate on Twitter. According to newsbusters, Korean Weaver Dorsey stated, the Twitter could be impartial by having a list of rules explaining the consequences for breaking the rules and installing an appeal system that actually works, but Dorsey says he's no longer interested in this thing being a neutral passive platform when you have a bunch of lefties in Silicon Valley who decide that their job is not to provide a platform for people who want to disagree, but is to be a vehicle for their own particular points of view, they need to be treated like publisher. There is a hard distinction in law between publishers and platforms. The daily wire is a publisher the daily wire is publisher. We on the show, we are a publisher. We talk about opinions, and we are responsible for those opinions if I were to slander someone on the air, I would be liable for defamation in court. Hey, but the the radio upon which you are listening to this or the phone upon what you are listening to this. Right. Those are platforms. Meaning they just carry whatever comes over the airwaves the phone or the radio is not liable for the things I say Twitter is it more like the phone or the radio or is it more like my show. Once Jack Dorsey says, we are no longer neutral. Once they say, we are no longer a platform. They must be treated like a publisher. And that means they are subject to all the restrictiveness that publishers are restricted to. Hey in a second. I only get to the new take on socialism from the left. Why socialism is right? And we're going to deconstruct a piece of culture coming up. First. Let's talk about that timeshare that you bought on your Hawaiian vacation a few years five years ago. I had a talk show on the station up in Seattle at that time. I met a little company called timeshare exit team. They enlighten me on how bad timeshare contracts can be that the majority of them lasts forever. Even when you die, the average yearly maintenance fees over a thousand bucks and increasing. That's whether or not you can actually use your timeshare, and I'm telling you, you don't have to be stupid to fall into a timeshare. I mean, you go to these presentations, the salesmen are fantastic. And then you look around you. Oh, oh my God. They're sucking money out of my wallet.

"Hey, and welcome. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Okay. So I gotta tell you this story from Great Britain. It is insane. So here's the story from Great Britain over the weekend. A British mother was arrested and incarcerated for referring to a transgendered woman is a man in online communication is according to the daily caller, Kate Scott, our revealed Saturday, the police came to her home Rodford to the local police station for questioning and left her for seven hours while her children watched according to the Daily Mail, Scott how they had been engaged in a Twitter dispute with the transgender activists over dead naming or denying the gender that someone believes he or she actually is news. The arrest follows another incident in the UK when seventy four year old Margaret Nelson was questioned by Suffolk police about her social media comments on transgendered people Scotto is still under investigation by police who took her photographs fingerprints and DNA sample after arresting her. They also took the woman's mobile phone, and laptop computer, they have not given it back since Scott. I was taken into custody on December first two thousand eighteen. And this is just insanity. Unfortunately, sort of insanity is becoming more and more common. Joining us on the line right now is Megan Murphy, she's an independent Canadian feminist writer and journalist she's founder and a founder editor and publisher of feminist Kurt which is Canada's leading feminists website. Megan thanks for joining Ben Shapiro show. Hey, thanks so much revenue. So let's start with with a little bit of background for folks who don't know your store, you're banned from Twitter in November. Why exactly did Twitter Banyu? Well, they weren't very specific as they never. But I was banned for tweet that said, yeah, it team referring to a local man that had been going around here. Vancouver. Asking women to give him walking out institition to give him a Brazilian wax. And they declined to do survey only offer disservice to women he took them to court and tried to extort money out of them, essentially. So I is really done it. He was just being kept anonymous by the press, which was very generous with them. And I tweeted a link to Google review that he'd posted saying, hey, did a great job on my Brazilian bikini wax under his name. He goes by his male name on Twitter as well as its name. He's still goes by Monday places online. And by was suspended permanently for that tweet. I mean, it's it is shocking. I in the aftermath of your suspension. I nearly started quoting biology textbooks in the hope that perhaps they would apply even standard and see if I would be banned as well. It seems to me that you've been victimized simply by way, the fact that you weren't notorious enough on the right there could be enough. Blowback to stop them from banning you have you has Twitter followed up with you at all have they explain to you what they're doing. They have not found appeal and appeal, and I got a forum response basically reiterating what they said in the first place, which was that broken Twitter rules against hateful conduct. Again. They weren't specific my best guess is that it was based on this new myths 'gendering wearing you can't refer to males identify as trans him or he. But of course, that wasn't in place as far as I knew when I was tweeting. And the first press report on that new rule was actually published twenty minutes after I was expended as I think is rather suspicious. Unbelievable. So you're you have a lawsuit against Twitter. Also, you had a book that was in the works and your publisher apparently pulled your book in the aftermath of this controversy. Right. I got an Email pretty much out of the movie author. I had been working with his publisher here in Vancouver center about two and a half years as far as I knew they were on board with my criticisms agenda, Kennedy ideology and gender Kennedy budget, which I believe is irrational, and incoherent, but also a threat to women's rights, and and the publisher out of the blue and said that they were no longer going to publish the book because they didn't want to hurt people's feelings. That's unbelievable. Now, you're you're you're pretty well respected in your field. Your work has appeared in numerous publications around the world and having a gender, sexuality and women's studies. Simon Fraser university. So you're not exactly a right wing coup here, obviously somebody who's a feminist. You consider yourself politically on the left. For sure I mean, I'm a socialist. So. For as long as I can remember and most of my work has focused on fighting violence against women and fighting things like the sex trade the sex industry pornography addictive Gatien of women things like domestic abuse. And I took on this issue of gender identity because I was seeing these policies and these laws being enacted across Canada North America in the UK erased women as a material reality and as a legal entity. And so, you know, I basically was like how are we to protect women's rights, if women don't exist. There's no longer definition for women that makes any sense, according to gender identity. Of course, I believe that women are adults, even you know, why that's very controversial proposition. Obviously making Murphy, independent, Canadian, feminist writer and journalist. So what's been the reception and the rest of the feminist community to your fight here? Do you think the most feminists agree with you or have they taken sort of the the more trendy pro transgender rights side of this debate? Well, it depends on which feminists you talk to the feminist that I haven't been working on for years and allied with washrooms transition houses, they believe that mentioned be transferred to women's prison, for example, because they one day Megan. That women have the right? I am sorry to cut you off. We're coming up on a hard break. I really appreciate the hard work that you've been doing that. Making Murphy feminist has been banned by Twitter for.

"I believe is how it's pronounced Imran's Khan who says, quote, no mention of Jesus in history unquote, and then announces international anti-blasphemy convention and that quote, the west should be made to understand our love for Muhammad. Here's one problem with this. If you truly have a love for Muhammad. You cannot then claim there is no mention of Jesus in history because do you know? Where Jesus is mentioned in history. Is this one of those cell phones you off? Yes. This is a cellphone guys. Yes. In the Koran, in fact, Jesus. So the only way that this is not a cell phone is if he is now admitting to us the Koran should not be taken seriously as a historical document, which I guess would be another cell phone, right?

And that's possible. I mean, I know we think that it's different trust me. They got so out pandering politicians and Pakistan every much if it's fake Muslim politicians and Pakistan like we have. Faked Jewish and Christian politicians here in the states who just know couple of catchphrases to get elected. Okay. Human nature's universal. Yes. All right. So it is possible. He doesn't know his has the Koran from a hole in the ground, and he's just pandering throwing stuff out there because he's appealing to a base of people that is absolutely possible. In fact, it might even be likely, but what's true? Is that Jesus is in the Koran, and so there he's referred to as the son of Mary the Koran teaches that Jesus was was actually not resurrected because he escaped crucifixion that God that a loss. Aw, with the Jews had planned to do to the profit the profit you Shula. And so he fooled the Jews by having someone else placed in the cross in Jesus stead. Okay. So that is right in the karate guys. Right. It's got to be kind of frustrating for you. Because you would have Steve would have liked to go all Joe Joseph. This on you. And you know, give you all this. But he just goes into his whispers, I don't know if you guys know this guys, but it's your own document. Right. It's kind of discipline for heard. It is it's kind of like it's only help you disappointing. When it's kind of like, the two wrote the thing if you years ago in the guardian or whatever about from from the United Kingdom, and where are these debates between you know, atheist and Christianity anymore. It is kind of disappointing when the prime minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, I believe that's the proper name. Can't even has to be fact checked by some guy on the treadmill and west of Moines. That's I mean, Steve's intellect is way above average. But still, you know, that's disappointing. That doesn't that you were talking about human nature being universal. We got a lot of gullible Americans who will line up with anybody. Throws them a catchphrase, right? Apparently, there's plenty of those kinds of voters than in Pakistan as well. Okay. Because if you were a shrew Islamist. Like, we were we were talking the other day that the leftist on social media over thanksgiving who were claiming that taxation is superior to plan through. They don't believe that. In a believe that because no one ever voluntarily pays more in taxes than they have to. Nobody does. Nobody does. I said, they don't believe it. They believe coercion in control is superior to charity when they're the ones wielding it. That's what they really believe. Okay. But they don't really believe taxation is superior to philanthropy. Because if they believe that they would pay more in taxes to be even more philanthropic, but they don't 'cause they don't believe their own PU this is worse Bucky. They don't believe it. All right. Here's how you know. We've also pointed out most feminist aren't true feminist like Megan Murphy, she's a true left-wing feminist gal got banned from Twitter for doubting trans psychosis ideology and saying guys, I don't like men, and I'm tired of them taking things from women..

"You end up with transgender ideology that ironically guts feminism itself, I'm not when I talk about transgenderism, I'm not talking about the handful of people who are confused psychologically about their gender their man, he's a man who thinks he's a woman, or he very much wants to be a woman that we're talking in that case about two point two point four percent of the population at the wildest estimates. I'm not talking about those people. I'm talking about the of transgenderism which is being foisted on us by leftist activists, which is why point two percent of the population is dominating the national conversation about the sexist because it's not really about helping those people at all what it's about is erasing the difference between men and women. Okay, fine. That's. One strategy if they wanna take they say, okay. The way for women to be equal to men is to just behave like men and pretend that they're men and to act like men. All right. If there's no difference between men and women as we are told time and time again, there's no difference, even the physical differences are minor. But really on a real level. There's no difference. Then what's a woman? The reason that we have different words for men and women is because they're different if men and women are the same. You would only have one word, which is man, right? You would like or woman, I guess, but you don't really just just one word. There wouldn't be any difference. The okay now few of us would grant that that there's actually no difference between men and women even though the ideologues are trying to tell us this. But take that one step further if there's no difference between men and women, then why do we have feminism? Seminars. Fem comes from fem from females. But if there's no distinction between males and females why have feminism at all? What is feminism? It's nothing with this opens the door to especially the transgender ideology is a question of who gets to define what a woman is. And this is the big argument that people like Meghan Murphy, the feminist writer is having with a Twitter right now, which is Twitter is taking the side of the transgender ideology. And Megan Murphy is defending the feminist idiot. And what Megan Murphy is saying is I am a woman I will define what a woman is men. Do not get to define what a woman is. And what Twitter is saying is now, what are you? There is no definition of went men and women. No was how dare you how hateful of you. But just think of the transgender ideology one of its expressions is transvestite ISM cross dressers drag queens who go to drag. Would you say that a drag Queen and I'm from New York? So there dragged Boers all over the village. You know, you see this affair bit. Would you say that a drag Queen is a woman that that's what a woman is? No, of course, not that's one fantasy version of a woman that's a caricature or a cartoon of a woman. Big eyelashes, crazy hair wild outfits, big lipstick and everything that's that's a cartoon of a woman. But that's not a woman in feminists have been telling us for years. They say how dare you Dallas up and force us to wear makeup and high heel and big eyelashes. That's not what a woman is. A woman can be anything. This is the snake eating its own tail. This is the natural logical conclusion of second way feminism the the feminists like Meghan Murphy are upset about this. Now be because obviously it's undercutting their entire ideology. But this is not some random turn of events that. Swooped in and tried to undermine feminism though. The roots of feminism's being undermined is in the ideology itself. You have to decide are men and women different or men and women exactly the same or the sexes complementary or the sexes of a indiscernible identical. Exactly without any distinction between them reasonable people for all of history, and including right now, all reasonable people will have to conclude men and women are different are complementary. This is true biologically. This is true spiritual. This is true, psychologically, this is simply too. It's true socially. They're complementary in different. They are not exactly the same. But this raises many more difficult questions for the left because if men and women really are different. If there is a difference between the sexes..

"And welcome to the podcast. Brought to you by Bob's red. Mill I'm John Hammond. And this is Megan Murphy. Hey, everyone in this episode. We're gonna go deep into one of probably the easiest ways to get a crowd pleasing meal on the table, not fast, but easy, and that's your slow cooker. Right. I mean who doesn't love the slow cooker and here in the northeast where we are. It's it's definitely fall. Slow cooker season. Right. And what is your favorite thing about cooking us little cooker, though? I'll there's many things, but the way it makes my apartment's. Ten people. I I will bet you money people would have the same answer. Right. And it's so easy. I love the the way when I cooked chicken thighs just off the bone. They're so tender pork make pulled pork. Like, it's unbelievable. There's no other way that I personally could make it that he's in that tender. It's fantastic. And especially like, there's there's definitely the sense the way it feels the house 'cause like low and slow all day long, just fills your house with those sense dinner and just mouth watering for an entire day. And look if in there's the convenience factor, right? If you are on the go all day long. Maybe no one's home all day. It's very get everything set low heat all day long. What is better than walking in your front door or your back door? However, you come home getting hit immediately with the scent of dinner and know that it's ready. Yeah. Like, there's no there's no prep. There's no getting like how many pots and this and that and who's cooking who's no just get a ladle or four. Or whatever it is that you're dishing out get a platinum bowl and bang dinner on the table. That's my poor dog crazy though. He's part. Beagle. His nose is amazing. So that thing is cooking for like, eight hours meets driving, the neighbors have low cooker. In his own house. But you know, the benefit of the slow cooker convenience is also kind of the challenge of this Loker as we're going to see here in this episode because because it's so easy because it's so convenient. There are a lot of mistakes that are easy to make. And it's it's you know. Few few cooking tools are as.

"And it was a good read an important Riyadh. So without further. Fucking do. We're so happy to welcome lady. We can officially call a threats Erin Gibson passable model. Did you knew I wasn't model in eighth grade? I assume do you know predatory modeling agencies where they go in. And they say you're tall you should like Barbas on. Yeah. But it was a knockoff Barbara's on told me get a nose job when I was in junior high. The pictures. I have. Yeah. I mean because we are telling you, of course, you're model. And I mean, of course, have been were forced to do some kind of fucking and by the way, anti modeling and modeling acting. I think of in print ad is real people. I'm laying right? Exactly. Actual model. Exactly for drinking. Yeah. Bring up for you to have some. Okay. So I we, but I love this book so hard. I really really did. I'm not just saying that this is like, and this is the first interview we've done for for dumb gave politics or ever where like we're interviewing somebody who wrote a book yet. But so I was like oh my God. What is this going to be going into this, and I have a long and complicated history with the word feminist and the whole thing. So I didn't know how I was gonna feel and I just want to hear your can I hear it. It is. Well, it really it's sort of like didn't know this about you, it it goes back to like mainly will I as you know, from Texas, alike, whatever, but really started when Hillary and Obama were in the primaries. I voted for Obama in those primaries. And I was like getting a lot of feedback about that from for men saying like who wanted Hillary or I guess saying like how how could you? Why wouldn't and maybe even women too. Well, how could you vote for the man over the woman? And so I started feeling like I would ask if we talked to different like feminist authors. We've talked to like a couple huge one yet. Julie Bendel, and what's the other one? Megan Megan early yet. Megan Markle, Megan Murphy, and I would always ask the question. Like, can you be considered a feminist if you voted for for Obama over Hillary, and like base, they you know, like they they said, yes the Cavs. Yes. Yeah. You know, like, I just I don't feel like I I don't know. I just have a complicated history with it. So I thought I feel like your book is really really really important for for mainly like people like me. That's what I was gonna ask you this is my first question, but I was gonna tell tell our fourteen listeners like what what would you say the Justice of the book? Well, it's basically. I've been kind of saying it's a love letter to eighteen year old me who was obsessed with Dixon. Cigarettes, just take a second. And look at all the ways that you are marginalized in the world by forces. You might not see and understand that you have the power to change those things I loved I'm using comedy to trick people into carrying about that stuff. So I think I do think the book is for people who are already very like militantly feminist. But what I hope is that people who aren't like that can see the ways they can be like that without that aren't just the regular like abortion, and you definitely wrote. And I think I think it can I think it does appeal to the those people who maybe don't think that they're feminists or whatever. Because all you're doing is putting what you did in the book, which was so great and using humor. And all that stuff is basically putting laying out in a very basic terms and not just being feminist, but just being empowered in your own self. That's all the, you know, I I read a lot of that stuff. And it was just like. There's no way any woman could read this book and not leave thinking like God, I'm a feminist because you are you are you want to be self empowered. Do you want to be happy? Do you want to feel good about yourself? Do you want to be controlled by other people? Do you want to be controlled by met? You don't you don't you know, what I mean? Like, I another people other feminists that we've talked to and they're they're great..
