In this episode of Welcome to My Vagina, Jessy and Rebekah talk holidays, sit down and dish with the cohosts of Frau Pow, an awesome podcast on the More Banana network and then highlight a few awesome women in sports!

- 01:30: This is a serious question for our listeners. What do you do when someone in your family says something you disagree with? Or, worse, says something that is racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, homophobic, transphobic, etc.? And what if you are the only one who disagrees?
