G’day voters, and welcome to the show notes for the sixth episode of 3 White Guys + Guest, a political podcast for a cynical nation.
Our plus guest is activist, feminist, and adult content producer Ms Kate Reckless.
Just to bring down the mood quickly, a woman was murdered in Tuesday’s knife attack because she was a sex worker. Michaela Dunn was a daughter, sister, friend, and most importantly, a human being. She was someone who spoke out about sexual violence and harassment.
Sex workers face some of the highest levels of abuse of any profession, and more often than not when they are murdered they are blamed for what was done to them. They are reduced to what they do, instead of who they are.
It’s the world’s oldest profession, and yet people still won’t accept that sex work is work.
Religious extremists have taken over all social, cultural, and political institutions and are forcing their perverted morality on to the rest of the nation, and for that reason, “promiscuous” women are demonised – and yet they also get to determine what makes a woman promiscuous. It’s as farcical as it is deadly.
Just like Eurydice Dixon, this is another story of a violent Australian man feeling entitled to a woman’s life. And before the meninists start, the only other person he stabbed was a woman.
Women are called whore, slut, frigid, hooker, or cunt for being open about their sexuality. They are threatened with rape, murder, and torture for refusing to genuflect before men. They have their clitoris cut off as punishment for being sexualised by men. One in three women has been a victim of sexual assault. 99% of women have been sexually harassed. No one deserves that.
This was a hate crime, but all people want to do is joke about milk crates.
There were a few sound issues in the first half of this one, apologies for that. This is another two-part episode. When the chat is good, it’s good.

Looking at the photos out of CPAC and I really hope for their sake protesters didn’t bother with that mess. It looks like they managed to sell maybe 150 tickets, almost all old white people.
It’s like the entire audience of Sky News showed up.
I mean, I considered heading up to cover the protests, but like it seems as though the bulk of the audience is journalists who know covering this shit generates outrage and clicks.
I’m not going to bother with any links for Fox News: The Stage Show in the show notes. Our listeners are better than that.
But with guests like Mark Latham, Tony Abbott, and Nigel Farage, their woman-hating agenda was fairly apparent.
