This week, we talk to Jenna Karvunidis, the woman who popularized gender-reveal parties more than a decade ago. These days, however, she regrets it big-time. We also chat with writer Thomas Page McBee — a trans man who writes about masculinity — about how gender-reveal parties became even more binary in order to make cis straight men feel more comfortable participating.

Finally, we take a brief tour through J.K. Rowling’s anti-trans comments and whether you can still read her books. (Sure! I guess! If you must!)
