Hey ass kickers! I am bringing you another episode of Conversations About Shit That Matters with Unqualified People. My “unqualified person” this week is my friend Kate Anthony, who helped me kick off this series several months ago. For newcomers, here’s a brief introduction to Kate: Kate Anthony is a certified life coach who specializes in helping moms decide whether they should stay in or leave their marriages. This week, Kate and I are talking about rape culture. Kate is truly kick-ass, one of my dearest friends, and someone I feel totally comfortable with unpacking this sensitive topic. And, rape culture is a lot to unpack.
As a reminder, before we get started, this is not an episode where I am teaching about rape culture. It’s an honest conversation between two unqualified people, emphasis on unqualified, about a very important and hard topic. We cover a lot, including what rape culture looks like, how we all participate in it, and some ways to start conversations with people about it.
In this episode you’ll hear:
- Identifying rape culture and Kate’s experience with being slut-shamed in high school
- Defining toxic masculinity
- Our thoughts on Brett Kavanaugh and what he could have done to make the situation different
- Rape culture, protecting the internal patriarchy, and denial of sexual assault
- How to start to have deeper conversations with others and take steps towards change
- Bringing men into the conversation about rape culture and toxic masculinity
- Kate’s experience with today’s dating scene and why she has decided to take a step back from it

Okay, y’all– there are two topics I’ve seen come up over the last few months during my retreats and programs. One is trusting women– why do we have such a hard time with this and how do we overcome it?
The other is the concept of feeling “good enough”. Do we just decide this and wait for it? Is it a mindset issue? Or something else?
Join me on Friday, November 9th at 12:30 eastern time where I’ll break down these two topics and give you some tangible steps to take to make this happen in your life. As you know from my book HTSFLS, both of these topics are IMPERATIVE for you to stop feeling like shit and start living your kick-ass life. See you there! (And yes, a replay will be available)
