Short Description: 
A critical conversation on feminism and our culture - Looking at the Reel Feminism Film Series

Tune in as Ani hosts a lively discussion of feminism.  Despite persistent rumors that women have achieved equality, and we live in a post-feminist society, many women (and men) recognize that there is still an active war against women being fought in the fronts of pop-culture, hate-filled pundits, and slimy political maneuvering.

What do you think of feminism? Do you consider yourself to be a feminist?

40 Years since Roe v Wade - an assessment of women's reproductive rights

Roe v Wade was the landmark decision which legalized abortion in the first trimester, throughout the US.  The case allowed that some restrictions could be set by individual states, in the second and third trimesters. The basis of this decision was recognition of a woman's essential right to privacy in speaking with her doctor about her reproductive health care.

Short Description: 
Ending the culture of rape takes everyone.

What is rape culture? Look around you; we are immersed in it.

Rape culture tells women not to walk alone at night. Rape culture asks if a woman who has survived rape was intoxicated, or if she'd gone on a date or had a relationship with the rapist.

Rape culture asks if the woman fought back, or judges her if she did, or if she didn't.

Rape culture tells us to teach women self defense as a way to stop rape. It does not tell us that men need to talk with men to recognize what rape is, and to stop it.

Rape culture enforces patriarchy by underscoring traditional gender roles, and invoking rape as a punishment if she steps too far out of line.

Short Description: 
Lyn and Ani talk with mythological scholar Micheal Meade

The events of the last week have us thinking deeply about things ... how does tragedy shape of perception of fear? Is it fear ... is it dread? What is needed to help reshape this culture from one of violence, greed and fear, to something more co-operative, imaginative and peaceful. This week we are fortunate to have renowned storyteller, author, and scholar of mythology, anthropology, and psychology Micheal Meade to help us grope with these timely and provacative questions. Micheal is the founder of Mosaic Multicultural Foundation, a group that works extensively with at risk youth and veterans. So, tune in or stream us for a "soul inoculation".

Why is Multnomah County's Sheriff voluntarily participating in the ICE Hold program?

This is an important day to put pressure on those elected to serve our communities to make sure they are actually doing that!

Ani and Lyn will talk with Marco Mejia, of Jobs with Justice, and Jaime Limon Guzman-- two activists from the ACT Network about Multnomah County's Sheriff Staton's participation in ICE holds.  

Over thelast three years, community leaders have met multiple times with Sheriff Staton and officials from his department to discuss policy recommendations to limit unfair, costly detentions of immigrants in local jails for deportation purposes.

After an action last Monday, December 10th, Sheriff Staton has told activists that he will meet with them on Monday the 17th, to let him know what decision he's made.

Air date: 
Fri, 11/30/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Talking about the winter holidays in a multi-cultural society.

FOX News and other conservative media outlets have been promoting the concept of there being a "War on Christmas".  The idea being that if a person wishes someone anything other than a "Merry Christmas", they are directly insulting Christians and attacking little baby Jesus in his manger.  Given that there are a number of faiths with holidays during December, how does a multi-cultural society respect and acknowledge multiple celebrations and observances.

And while on the subject of respecting many spiritual paths--turns out the Mayan calendar does not end later this month, and the persistant hype of the end of the world is benefitting tour operators and new age bookstores, while offending the Mayans.

Positively Revolting on 03-16-12

program date: 
Fri, 03/16/2012

Ani and Lyn look at the current fog of sexism blanketing the political scene.

Women who want contraceptive care conisidered to be part of basic health coverage called sluts and prostitutes....  Legislation is written to mollify religious organizations and business owners that will deny employees access to contraceptive care, if the owners deem such coverage as contrary to their religious views. 

In this election year it seems as if the old pendulum is swinging far, far to the puritanical end of the spectrum.

Well, ani and Lyn aren't having it.

As radical feminists and thinking people, we declare that sexuality is a sacred right and part of our existance on this plane. Pleasure is divine.  We will not be shamed or legislated into "family values".  We vigilantly watch for the most unholy alliance of church and state, and we resist it.

We assert our rights to be as sexual as we want to be. 

Author and activist Dark Lady was guest.

Positively Revolting on 02-03-12 Author Riane Eisler

program date: 
Fri, 02/03/2012

Pleasure and joy are sacred states.

In a society in which pleasure is denied and commodified, taking pleasure seriously is a revolutionary act.

Join ani and Lyn for a conversation with Riane Eisler, author of the books, "The Chalice and the Blade", "Sacred Pleasure: Sex, Myth, and the Politics of the Body--New Paths to Power and Love", "The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics", "The Power of Partnership", and many more.

Riane Eisler is the President of the Center for Partnership Studies, and social scientist who is evolving a vision of society based on cooperative or partnership based principles.

As we create a new world together, what are it's guiding values? Tune in and hear how a society based in partnership and cooperation is likely to celebrate pleasure, art, and sexuality. Ms. Eisler's classic work in history illustrates that this has been true in the past, while the dominator model denies pleasure and emphasizes games of competition and war.

Positively Revolting 12-30-11 The good news of 2011, looking back with Sarah van Gelder

program date: 
Fri, 12/30/2011

 

2011 was an eventful year-- a year of transitions and change felt around the world and in our lives. It seems that in most year end news round-ups, there's the dichotomy of presenting a world of doom and gloom, and light fluffy pieces that really don't mean anything.... oh, and the celebrity news.....

Today, we looked at things a little differently.  Ani & Lyn speak with Sarah van Gelder, the Executive Editor of Yes! Magazine, about the good work that's been done to advance progressive social change, and to hear about things that are really happening to bring us closer to a sustainable world based in truth, beauty and egalitarianism.

Sarah van Gelder is one of the editors of the newly released book "This Changes Everything: Occupy Wall Street and the 99% Movement".

The Positively Revolting Solstice Show 2011

There is so much going on with Occupy; the Bill of Rights being shattered, tents covering freedom fighters, and yet nature and the goddess call us to look inside.

This is the darkness before the dawn. What do we want the dawn to bring in? This is a time of deep visioning. Dreaming big to help us bring a freshness to the world we are co-creating, not simply doing the same things with a slightly new look. This is a time to delve into the liberating powers of dreaming, of visioning, of connecting to one another and the collective unconscious.

What have you done to free your mind lately?

this morning's program: host & speaker

I am a daily KBOO listener; however, while todays speaker while speaking from the heart regarding her dismay over the Afganistan theater of war, she makes vague statements, with great emotion, but few references to facts, which could easily be woven into her statements to make them more illuminating, it would give more power to her rally cries. Tt feels as though I am simply listening to hyperbole LIKE ON CREEPY FOX NEWS!  The Hosts of the program, similarly, are never probing or asking for clarification of the important issue, an important question to probe is: "why ARE we there?".  This program is dithering, and the speaker is bland, unconvincing of any knowledge base, boring, 10th rate.  Additionally, this is typical of the "Positively Revolting" hour, I usually never tune in when I know these two hosts will be on, bcs. it is never a provoking program, it rarely reveals or provides any new information about anything.  If this program has to continue to be on at all, consider putting it on late at night....it is pablum. 

Good Sista' Bad Sista' on the other hand was a great relief for me on Friday morning's programing, those women are sharp, witty and smart. 

Do not dumb us down with this progam "Positively Revolting", it is a zero.

Pay Equality

I recently heard the argument that the pay differential between men and women is actually fair. This idea is based on the situation of women living longer than men but work the same period of time. This argument claims that the total difference of pay between men and women equals the cost of additional medical care spent for women in their senior years.

For example, let's say a man and a woman work the same number of years (about 40), in the same job with the same responsibilities, and the man makes 10% more than the woman. Say that the job pays (in constant dollars) an average of $30,000 over the forty years. The man makes $1.2 million over this period and the woman makes $1.08 million.

The difference is $120,000. Now at age 60, a man will generally live to be 75 and a woman will live to be 85. Most medical expenses are incurred in the last ten years of live. These costs are paid mostly by public funds through MediCare. The pay_inequality_is_fair argument holds that this $120,000 pay differential is used by society to pay the additional medical expenses that women use and men don't.

I realize that this argument will float like a lead zeppelin on the Positively Revolting community. However, you may want to be aware of it so you don't get blindsided by it in a public debate on the issue.

Thank you,
Alan in Portland

Where did Ani go?

Where did Ani go? I miss her!

I'm here, honest

Hi there, Melodie and I are hosting alternating weeks on Friday mornings, now. I hope you had a chance to hear my program with Norman Solomon last Friday, 11/7, but if you didn't, you can hear it online-- there is a link to the audio on this program page. I will host again on the 21st. Thanks so much for listening! with love & solidarity, ani

woo hoo!

Glad you're still involved in the show. Thanks for all that you do for our community!

much love, m

Wow... How about some positive feedback?

I must have picked a good week to start listening to KBOO. My unhealthy addiction to KPOJ has been shaken. What stirred me to radio hop was the recent clubbing and scrubbing of morning show co-host Heidi Tauber.

Thankfully (along with news I'm not hearing elsewhere) I struck gold with back to back to back mornings of call in shows which were right up my avenue. On Wednesday Barbara Bernstein and friends of the 40 Mile Loop took me on a bike ride down memory lane. The next day, Dave and Jo Ann took on the very difficult but extremely important topic of race and justice in America. I found the candor of the hosts and callers-in to be a much needed breath of fresh air.

Yesterday was quite synergenic. I didn't think anything Positively Revolting would be my pint of brew, but the community of thought that came together was positively revolutionary. I'm still not entirely successful in finding joy amidst the madness, but the range of emotions I was able to experience during the show were a welcome departure from depression. Together we just may succeed... or at least, survive.

KBOO, I think I love U. (And Jeff always has sumpin' to say to go along with that sexy voice! I'm glad he seems to hop around the dial too.)
