On this Out d’Coup Xtra, Dr. Colleen Clemens joins Kevin to talk about misogynist, right-wing trolls and toxic masculinity. Following yet another horrific mass shooting in Texas earlier this month, Clemens tweeted “Toxic masculinity is killing everyone. REPEAT. Toxic masculinity is killing everyone. REPEAT. Toxic masculinity is killing everyone. REPEAT.” That was enough to draw vicious attacks from the bottom-feeders on the right. Her article, “Why I Said No to Tucker Carlson, and Why My “No” Didn’t Matter,” appeared this weekend on Raging Chicken Press.
Colleen Lutz Clemens, Ph.D., associate professor of Non-Western Literatures and Director of Women’s and Gender Studies at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania, earned her Ph.D. in Post-Colonial Literature at Lehigh University. Raging Chicken readers and listeners know Clemens as the co-creator of the podcast Inside 254. Keep your eyes out for an episode of Inside 254 talking about toxic masculinity coming soon.
