Listen to ep. 8 with the founders of DIAG

"We're gonna need a bigger boat."
35

I recently had the honor of joining the board of directors of DIAG — Democrats for an Informed Approach to Gender — and I’m excited to interview the organization’s co-directors, ‘Ellie’ and ‘Eliza,’ on this episode.

All three of us were, in the words of my friend Mrs. Miller, ‘Assigned Democrat at Birth.’ For reasons we will discuss today, each of us feels more or less obligated to try and rescue the party from what I’ve described as a slow-motion train wreck of its own making. To complicate the analogy: each of us has a child riding on the ill-fated train.


Editor’s note: I’m down to just two awkward noises that I was unable to edit out, so yay! Progress! They are brief and both occur in the first 16 minutes: after that no more bloopers, so don’t give up. :)

Ellie has written several articles for PITT, including this two-part essay: part 1 and part 2, about life for liberal Democrats living in ‘the Upside-Down.’

Eliza has also published two essays for PITT: read them here and here.


Wisdom from the DIAG website:

We all share a common concern: our Democratic representatives, and many of our liberal family members, friends, neighbors, relatives, icons, and organizations are supporting and promoting a harmful ideology and shutting down necessary discourse on the topic of gender. Remaining incurious about the sudden rise in adolescent girls and boys seeking to escape from their bodies, the dangerous and disturbing realities of “gender-affirming care,” and the irrational elevation of gender identity over the biological reality of sex, is neither ethical nor sustainable.
