Queer and Queerer Ep. 81 – Celibacy: Same Shameful Ingredients In A Shiny New Package

Zack and Peterson are back to talk about a new (old) product on the market: celibacy! Also known as “ex-gay lite.” Since the ex-gay movement has largely crumbled in recent years and it’s no longer convincing to argue that sexual orientation can be changed, conservatives are now encouraging gay, lesbian, and bisexual people to just not have sex. Given celibacy has its own theological history, does this new advocacy for embracing it measure up or is it just a different-looking outcome for sin-shaming? Also, Zack is one of the 40 under 40 and Peterson’s got his eye on some new transgender television shows.

    Hi
    There seems to be a problem with the feed for this episode. In my podcacher (BeyondPod) it shows up as only 21kb, 2min20s but not even those 2 min do play. Also the picture of the feed doesn’t work

    • Berta says:

      I can download show 81 manually from the HP however. Also downloading older shows in the podcatcher works fine.

      • Zack Ford says:

        Hmm.. I have no idea what might be happening there! I think when I first posted there was a typo in the file URL. I saw it immediately and corrected it, but perhaps the feeds picked it up and haven’t picked up the correction. I’m just going to try reposting the whole thing.

        • Zack Ford says:

          Okay! Try again, Berta! I think it should be working correctly now!

          • Berta says:

            Simply reloading didn’t do the trick, than in the extended settings I found that I synchronize with feedly – Deselecting that finally allowed me to download the episode in the podcatcher. It seems that feedly still has the wrong link.
