Emily L. Hauser (Open Zion, In My Head ) and Alyssa Rosenberg (ThinkProgress)

Guest-hosting on The Posner Show, Emily and Alyssa discuss women and sexism in pop culture. Alyssa describes the economic incentives for the continued production of sexist entertainment. They talk about Louis C.K.’s response to Daniel Tosh’s rape joke, and whether such jokes are ever appropriate. Can pop culture really be separated from politics? Emily discusses talking with her kids about what they read and watch. Alyssa argues that homogeneity of thought represents a danger to dedicated fan communities. Turning to The Avengers, Emily posits that even Joss Whedon isn’t perfect—and that’s okay! Finally, Alyssa explains why it’s so important to have diversity in entertainment.
