Bill Cosby AKA Pill Cosby

Trigger warning: this episode involves in depth discussion of sexual assault and rape.

In this episode Jessy and Rebekah start off by discussing the fact that the Golder State Killer got caught (big ups to Michelle McNamara) and then, as if you thought that wasn’t dark enough, things get more serious. Your favorite almost-famous podcast hosts then discuss the details of the Bill Cosby is a rapist situation that has been unfolding. And it’s about damn time people talk about this since the first allegations involve something that happened in 1965. That was 53 years ago, Vaginalings. And finally, the ladies try to lighten things up by pulling out some results of a 2014 Bill Cosby meme generator gone wrong. The results are mixed.

  • 01:03: Jessy and Rebekah celebrate the arrival of the warm weather! But we all know what arrives with warm weather…creeps, and lots of ‘em.
  • 01:48: The Golden State Killer AKA the East Area Rapist AKA the Original Night Stalker AKA the Visalia Ransacker was finally caught! His name is Joseph DeAngelo and it’s about time that mother fucker got got. You can learn all about him by reading Michelle McNamara’s book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark or listening to episode #1 of My Favorite Murder where Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark talk about the East Area Rapist or episode #118 where the duo reflects on the arrest of a suspect in the decade-long rape/murder/ransack spree.
  • 03:03: Not only does he have two (or maybe three) children but they are daughters. DAUGHTERS!
  • 03:18: He actually called and taunted victims as recently as 2001, not 2000 as Rebekah stated.
  • 03:53: Rebekah was referring to Gary Leon Ridgway, AKA The Green River Killer, who is proven to have murdered 49 people but is suspected of killing at least 90, most of whom were sex workers.
  • 05:18: Jessy and Rebekah begin the real reason for this episode: a discussion of Bill Cosby (insert vomit emoji here).
  • 08:58: *** In September, 2005 Bill Cosby admitted in a deposition that he gave young women Quaaludes in an effort to have sex with them***
  • 09:28: Here is a link to part of Hannibal Buress’ October 16, 2014 bit when Buress really went after Cosby. This had been a part of his bit for a while but this particular performance is credited with bringing Cosby’s actions into the light.
  • 14:18 This article by Noreen Malone in The Cut gives detailed accounts from 35 of Bill Cosby’s accusors.
  • 16:47: According to RAINN, 7 out of 10 rapes are committed by someone known to the victim. Some organizations report that rate as being as high as 9 out of 10 victims although that usually applies to college campuses.
  • 17:18: This doesn’t just happen around the rich and famous. Jessy and Rebekah discuss some reasons why victims of sexual assault don’t come forward and tell their own stories of being victims of sexual assault.
  • 19:13: Here is some info about Brock Turner. This is actually a link to a letter read to the court by the victim. It is really hard to get through but incredibly important.
  • 20:53: Camille Cosby whyyy?!?!
  • 23:06: Here is a link to Barbara Bowman’s article for the Washington Post.
  • 25:04 Here is a link to our episode on the USAG scandal. Give ‘er a listen!
  • 26:17: Back in 2014 the Cosby Camp ill-advisedly created a meme generator to try and drum up some Cosby love. It backfired.

The Queerness of Frasier

Writer and bonafide smarty pants Anthony Oliveira joins Anita to talk about the queerness of Frasier and its treatment of homosexuality on the show. He also teaches Anita literary terms that she will now use to try and impress other people.

The Best Dinner Party Episodes [with Patrick Monahan]

Comedian Patrick Monahan and Anita discuss their favorite dinner party episodes and try to figure out why Frasier and Niles talk like they’re vaguely British.

Pronouns

In this episode Jessy and Rebekah review a menstrual cup that allows you to have sex with the partner of your choosing while you’re on your period without ruining anyone’s sheets! And then WTMV welcomes their first guest, Lucy Frank! Lucy is about to graduate from Duke School of Nursing and visited WTMV to talk about appropriate use of pronouns in a medical scenario and, really, in life. And then Jessy, Rebekah and Lucy played a celebrity themed drinking game with T-Rex arms? You’ll have to listen for details.

0:39: Jessy and Rebekah (but mostly Jessy) offer a completely unpaid review of SoftCup. It’s great. We (mostly) love SoftCup. But, Dear SoftCup, please sponsor our podcast. Okay thank you.

5:00: We spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out why the Diva Cup dries you out. The SoftCup box says that SoftCup is one of the only products that doesn’t dry you out but, despite the fact that Rebekah has experienced the drying-out effects of the diva cup, she cannot seem to find corroborating evidence. More research will be done and we will share our findings. But this is one area in which the Internet has failed us.

7:40: Rebekah’s sister Lucy comes to WTMV to talk about the appropriate use of pronouns in the world but, more specifically, in a medical context (FYI: she’s a nurse). Welcome to Welcome to My Vagina, Lucy!

15:30: Watch Jessy’s amazing video called “Intersex Basics.” It’s all about the fact that gender exists on a spectrum and how people oversimply everything to make it easier to fit those they interact with into neat little boxes. But we all know that life is never easily categorized. People are complicated and that is what makes us amazing. So watch her video.  Also, read Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. Eugenides wrote this book because he was dissatisfied with the way literature and history dealt with intersex anatomy and emotions. Read it and then let’s talk about it.

17:00: Education is key! The more we talk about things, the more people learn and become more comfortable. So let’s keep talking. All the time. About everything. But let’s agree to not expect marginalized populations to do all the work. It’s up to all of us to research and make the effort. That includes nurses, podcasters, bartenders, bankers, politicians, teachers and everyone else.

17:30: Say it with us: being transgender is not a problem.

19:20: “Vanessa Goes to the Doctor.” This video is EVERYTHING.

23:30: Here is a link to Duson Spectrum, the Gay-Straight Alliance at Duke School of Nursing.

24:30: Here is a little information about “Let’s Talk About Sex!” It’s an interactive workshop for healthcare providers and students to get used to, you guessed it, talking about sex! All in an effort to make it more comfortable for the provider as well as the patient.

27:00: Ethan Cicero is awesome. He wrote an incredible, and deeply troubling, article about the barriers to care for transgender people that everyone should read. Seriously. Read it. His efforts have shed much needed light on this issue and are hopefully leading to higher educational standards across the medical community.

29:50: Lucy gives us some really wild statistic about victims of sex trafficking. It’s horrible. We all have to do better but health care providers are oftentimes the only people outside sex trafficking rings that come in contact with victims.

34:40: Hold on to your hats, folks, because Jessy, Rebekah and Lucy play a drinking game! And get drunk. And then go out after the podcast is over and continue having drinks. There was laughter, there were tears, Lucy ate scallop tacos. (This part of the day was thankfully not recorded.)

Swear count: Rebekah Esther “Swears like a Sailor” Frank swore 8 times. She was handily out-swore by Jessy “Potty Mouth” Caron who swore 9 whole times!

Cyber Harassment

In this episode Jessy and Rebekah get attacked by turkeys on Staten Island, talk about cyber harassment they have experienced and the well-known cases that make them mad/nervous, and then close the episode out by wondering what animal is the rudest. You don’t want to miss it. We promise.

0:30 Jessy an Rebekah get attacked by turkeys!

3:45 We got a really awesome review from a friend! And you guys have all been so great about telling us that you love our podcast! But maybe tell iTunes? Or Stitcher? Please review us or send us an email us at welcometomyvagina@gmail.com and let us know what you think.

5:35 Rebekah makes the best dad joke ever. Do you have a better dad joke? Email it to us. We want to hear from you! PLEASE EMAIL US! OR TWEET US @welcometomyvag!

6:15 Jessy and Rebekah get into the meat of this episode: the cyber harassment that women experience on the internet, starting with a story Rebekah tells of a particular internet troll who used to get drunk and make up email addresses to bother her from. Addresses he would promptly delete after sending rude emails.

8:46 You can, and should, read Rebekah’s blog post entitled “Apparently I’m a Failure” here. But you should also read some of her other stuff.

9:35 Jessy reads a comment that she got on her YouTube page (which you should check out and subscribe to because it’s great and funny and educational). Check out this video specifically: The Dirty F Word.

11:55 Just a reminder about the “sorry jar!” We spoke about it in Episode 6: Sorry Not Sorry.

13:35 If you are going to criticize us, cite your sources. We love well researched rebuttals. But don’t come at us with some bullshit.

15:00 The Duke Lacrosse case. Every time someone questions a woman’s veracity, they almost always reference this case. Here are some articles. And, in fact, the story is far more complicated than the way Rebekah characterized it. The men were exonerated but the accuser still stands by her allegations, as she serves time in jail for murdering her abusive boyfriend. Which is a conversation for another day.

21:10 Here is some information about GamerGate which was the most ridiculous online sexist mob to ever exist. Until the next one.

24:02 Anita Sarkeesian was supposed to give a speech at Utah State University, not the University of Utah. Sorry Utes.

27:15 Rebekah unleashes her somewhat controversial feelings about the First Amendment. Let us know your thoughts. Email us!

28:25 Check out our podcast about Gun Violence and Domestic Abuse if you missed it.

30:30 Jessy and Rebekah ask each other funny questions! Some of them involving birds! Now that is what we call coming full circle. But seriously, seriously. How many chickens would it take to kill an elephant? Email us your thoughts at welcometomyvagina@gmail.com

Rebekah’s Swear Tally: Rebekah Esther “Sweats Like a Sailor” Frank swore a whopping 23 times. Woah.
