This is the second episode of Feminist Frequency’s new series, The FREQ Show! With The FREQ Show, we’re answering the question, “What do representations of race, gender and sexuality in pop culture have to do with our current social and political climate?”

Despite Trump and his bumbling administration giving us no shortage of legitimate reasons to criticize and mock them every day, many people resort to homophobic jokes and body-shaming insults in an effort to lampoon our current disaster-in-chief. In this episode of The FREQ Show, we break down what makes this “problematic” humor such a problem, demonstrating how it reinforces the very ideas of traditional masculinity that helped propel Trump to the White House in the first place.
