Today’s conversation is one Tracey and Cayly were admittedly nervous about having on the podcast. But they ultimately decided it was an important topic to discuss, so, here goes.
The question around which this conversation is oriented is: Are we to the point that we’re so easily offended that we’re getting in the way of the very change we seek?
See also: Are we too politically correct?
Tracey and Cayly talk about feminism, the #metoo movement, infighting among liberals and progressives, the importance of maintaining our sense of humor amidst all the political challenges we’re facing today, and shy leading with curiosity is essential to having productive dialogues about important issues.
We hope you enjoy this discussion and welcome any and all feedback on these issues. So please feel free to reach out with any additional thoughts you might have by emailing the show at firstname.lastname@example.org or by DMing Cayly through Instagram (@cayly.c).
