  • Episode 9.5: Addendum and Apology

    Episode 9.5: Addendum and Apology This episode is an addendum to and an apology concerning Episode 9 on Bootblacking and Leather Culture. G & M address the insufficient space given to the two separate issues of transphobia in the leather community and the pushback against femininity in leather spaces. They clarify here that these are separate issues which should each be given their own recognition and that while they may overlap in some cases, the hosts make it clear that they did not intend to conflate transmen with femininity. Additionally, they apologize for the use of “male” in the episode where they mean “cis-men” and acknowledge that the conversational style of the podcast makes language messy. It is important to both M & G, members of the trans community themselves, that they do better in the future and continue to grow in ways to be more sensitive on KNP.

The hosts also discuss gay male leather culture, what its relationship to kinky culture is, and concepts like the “hanky code” from a historical perspective.

  • Episode 8: Imposter Syndrome and Being Trans Enough
    by M & G on April 12, 2019 at 7:00 am

    Episode 8: Imposter Syndrome and Being Trans Enough In Episode 8 of the Kinky, Nerdy, and Poly podcast talks about a heavy subject and a bit of a deviation from the normal topics of the show – being transgender and having imposter syndrome. In particular, it discusses how one can feel not “trans” enough, not “queer” enough, and the feelings that “maybe you aren’t REALLY trans”. The hosts, both trans themselves, walk you through their experiences with this syndrome as it relates to their gender and sexuality. These experiences come from two different directions, L (normally G) being an AMAB trans-feminine genderfluid person and M being an AFAB non-binary trans guy. Despite these differences, their journeys have similarities that unite them in this particularly difficult dialogue. If you are transgender and you need someone to talk to you can call the Trans Lifeline. The number for Trans Lifeline in the US is 877-565-8860 and in Canada is 877-330-6366.

Part 1 is about passing privilege and part 2 is about queer imposter syndrome.
