Episode 5: Personality Disorders Are Valid


Nina gets a GitHub account, and the first thing she worries about is whether a mob will cancel her there. Corinna debates coming out as non-binary. Is “human” a gender, or still a species? After some discussion, we agree that all identities, tribal affiliations, cult memberships, and personality disorders are valid, so please don’t cancel us.

Episode 4: TERF-War Inside Baseball and Rural Intersectionality

Trans-identified female Scott Newgent, who just released an important (dare we say heroic) article in Newsweek, is praised by Nina on feminist social media site Spinster.xyz, only to be met with harsh criticism from radical feminists who argue trans gender critics must detransition to be taken seriously. TERF-war inside baseball continues as Corinna brings up the Biden Administration’s endorsement of boys in girls’ sports. Corinna suggests drawing a Rural/City axis into Intersectionality, to which Nina responds cynically. Nina is in fact unusually cynical and sarcastic throughout, perhaps because she’s being cancelled by yet another cultural institution, again.

Episode 3: Everyone Expects the Spanish Inquisition

For no reason in particular, Corinna wants to talk about the Spanish Inquisition, which was originally the Inquisition of Heretical Depravity. Since we strictly forbid any form of heresy in this safe space, it hardly makes sense on why the Inquisition would be germane. In completely different news, Corinna and Nina talk about the New York Times parting ways with David McNeal, its foremost science reporter, after he was overheard uttering a blasphemous word in the company of children from wealthy families. Nina talks about the importance of courage, especially as it reflects on mental health, and Corinna challenges the idea of whether courage even exists.

Episode 2: Senator is a Slur

After discussing some feedback on Episode 1, corinnA and ninA use the word “senator” as a slur. They name some other slurs, so listener discretion is advised. corinnA asserts the importance of Liberal Democracy, while ninA implies they don’t live in one. Then ninA shares some details about a Very Retarded Breakup, and corinnA invites listeners to send feedback to info@heterodorx.com , or comment at https://www.heterodorx.com/uncategorized/episode-2/

Note: ninA’s mic sounds pretty bad here. She will return to her USB desktop mic in our next episode.

Episode 1: TERF vs Tranny

Corinna and Nina make their very first recording together, discussing slurs, radical feminism, pronouns, porn, and more. Corinna dazzles Nina by revealing, superhero-style, that he started what became https://terfisaslur.com/ .
