In Cistem Failure: Essays on Blackness and Cisgender (Duke UP, 2022), Marquis Bey meditates on the antagonistic relationship between blackness and cisgender. Bey asks, What does it mean to have a gender that “matches” one's sex---that is, to be cisgender---when decades of feminist theory have destroyed the belief that there is some natural way to be a sex? Moving from the The Powerpuff Girls to the greeting “How ya mama'n'em?” to their own gender identity, Bey finds that cisgender is too flat as a category to hold the myriad ways that people who may or may not have undergone gender-affirmative interventions depart from gender alignment. At the same time, blackness, they contend, strikes at the heart of cisgender's invariable coding as white: just as transness names a non-cis space, blackness implies a non-cis space. By showing how blackness opens up a way to subvert the hegemonic power of the gender binary, Bey makes a case for an antiracist gender abolition project that rejects cisgender as a regulatory apparatus. Marquis Bey is Assistant Professor of African American Studies and English at Northwestern University and author of several books, most recently Black Trans Feminism, also published by Duke University Press. Sohini Chatterjee is a PhD Candidate in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies at Western University, Canada. Her work has recently appeared in Women's Studies: An inter-disciplinary journal, South Asian Popular Culture and Fat Studies. Learn more about your ad choices.

Today, I am blessed to have here with me Dr. Lori Bouchard. She completed her degree in Health Science at Western University and a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine (the four-year full-time program) at the prestigious Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto.   Dr. Bouchard founded Inside Health, Ontario's most innovative naturopathic healing center, to help people reverse complicated and often misunderstood conditions such as Lyme, chronic fatigue, Hashimoto's, and infertility. More than a decade later, Inside Health offers a comprehensive range of naturopathic support, welcoming all those who wish to live in optimal health. With a special focus on cancer health, Dr. Bouchard is on a mission to help patients understand the real root of cancer and how gut health, genetics, and environmental factors impact tumor growth.  In this episode, Dr. Bouchard explains why it's a good sign when you get sick once or twice a year. Being sick is one of the ways our body can get rid of the garbage in our cells. Then, Dr. Bouchard dives into all things cancer, including how to support the body, the importance of attitude, and how the cells communicate during this time. Plus, Dr. Bouchard discusses all the different ways you can help the mitochondria.

If you never get sick, then your immune system never has a chance to purge toxicity.  Getting rid of garbage is a crucial thing for our bodies. You should be sick once or twice a year. However, you shouldn't be sick for lengthy periods.  [10:50] The Impact Your Feelings and Attitude Can Have With A Cancer Diagnosis You need to support the body when you have cancer.  Anger is going to make cancer way worse.  When you get a cancer diagnosis, it's a reason to look at your health and healing differently.  One in every two people in their lifetime will get cancer. 100% of men over the age of 80 have prostate cancer. Also, many people die with thyroid cancer but not from thyroid cancer.  Remember, cancer doesn't necessarily have to take your life; it's part of how your cells are aging.  [15:45] Did You Know That Cancer Is A Survival Mechanism?  Cancer is a survival mechanism.  Every single one of our cells has a slew of mitochondria. Each of the mitochondria produces energy. Stress, toxicity, inflammation, and glyphosates are damaging our mitochondria.  Cancer is your body trying to keep your cells alive.  [23:35] How To Support Your Mitochondrial Health  A 13-hour fast will support your mitochondria.  Eliminating toxicity will also help your mitochondria.  Get rid of foods with glyphosates, herbicides, and pesticides. Don't brush your teeth with damaging chemicals. Also, make sure you are going to the bathroom every day. If you are regularly eliminating, then you are not putting stress on the liver. Drinking lots of water will help keep your cells healthy.  [34:30] The Hospitals Are Feeding Cancer Patients The Wrong Types of Foods  Most doctors do not want to engage in a conversation about nutrition and cancer. We need to have a critical talk about fueling the body properly.  When you're in the hospital, they give you foods full of sugar, feeding cancer.  You'll do better with your cancer treatments if your body is in ketosis.  [39:40] Is Prostate Cancer Associated With Sedentary Behavior?  If you're given a prostate cancer diagnosis, they'll put you on androgen blockers to suppress your testosterone. However, Dr. Bouchard thinks people should be moving more. As we age, it's common for most people to sit at their computer all day long and not move. Testosterone declines when you aren't moving.  Dr. Bouchard likes to get men working on a hula hoop. In general, most people do not move around enough.  [42:30] The Connection Between Chronic Stress and Cancer  Fear, anxiety, sleepless nights, and high cortisol can worsen cancer. If lifestyle and food were the same, stress would make cancer worse. When your stress levels are high, your sleep and how you repair at night won't be the same. Living in the sympathetic nervous state is going to trigger cancer cells more. AND MUCH MORE!

Episode 115: Erectile Dysfunction Diagnosis.  Discussion about the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction with Andrew, Adriana, and Dr. Arreaza. Causes, labs, and physical exam is briefly discussed. Written by Andrew Kim, MSIV, Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific. Comments by Adriana Rodriguez, MS3, Ross University School of Medicine; and Hector Arreaza, MD.September 22, 2022.You are listening to Rio Bravo qWeek Podcast, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California, a UCLA-affiliated program sponsored by Clinica Sierra Vista, Let Us Be Your Healthcare Home. This podcast was created for educational purposes only. Visit your primary care provider for additional medical advice.In episode 39 o erectile dysfunction, Dr. Ihejirika gave us an overview, but today we will be more detailed about the diagnosis of ED. Definition.The American Urological Association (AUA) published an erectile dysfunction guideline in May 2018, which is available online at no cost. Based on that guideline, erectile dysfunction can be defined as “the consistent or recurrent inability to attain and/or maintain penile erection sufficient for sexual satisfaction, including satisfactory sexual performance.” Comment: This guideline provides 25 principles for diagnosing and treating ED. Diagnosis.Getting a good history is important when diagnosing erectile dysfunction. The patient should be asked about the onset of symptoms, severity, how much it hinders his sexual performance, whether the patient can get and maintain an erection, psychological factors, social factors, and presence of morning erections. One can use different questionnaires: the five-question International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5) or a single-question self-assessment. Single-question self-assessment:Impotence means not being able to get and keep an erection that is rigid enough for satisfactory sexual activity. How would you describe yourself?Not impotent: always able to get and keep an erection good enough for sexual intercourse.Minimally impotent: usually able to get and keep an erection good enough for sexual intercourse.Moderately impotent: sometimes able to get and keep an erection good enough for sexual intercourse.Completely impotent: never able to get and keep an erection good enough for sexual intercourse.Comment: Basically, the single-question self-assessment is a self-diagnosis of erectile dysfunction; the patient is giving you the severity of his condition. This questionnaire seems to be very subjective. International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF-5):IIEF-5 asks five questions, and the patient answers on a scale of 1 to 5 (1 is the worst, 5 is the best)How do you rate your confidence that you could get and keep an erection?When you had erections with sexual stimulation, how often were your erections hard enough for penetration?During sexual intercourse, how often were you able to maintain your erection after you had penetrated your partner?During sexual intercourse, how difficult was it to maintain your erection to completion of intercourse?When you attempted sexual intercourse, how often was it satisfactory for you?Diagnosis can be made based on the total score. 1 to 7: severe ED, 8 to 11: moderate ED, 12 to 16: mild-moderate ED, 17 to 21: mild ED, and 22 to 25: no ED.This is a self-reported questionnaire, and the score should be interpreted in a clinical context. Answers will likely be biased if, for example, the questionnaire is asked by a female medical assistant. Causes of ED:It is important to assess for medical conditions, psychological conditions, and medications because ED can be caused by vascular, neurological, psychological, and hormonal problems.  Cardiovascular: Some common conditions related to ED are cardiovascular disease (PAD, CAD) and HTN.Endocrine: DM, HLD, obesity, testosterone deficiency (hypogonadism), hyperprolactinemia, thyroid disorder, metabolic syndrome.Neurologic: Neurologic conditions (multiple sclerosis, stroke, spine injury), trauma, and venous leakage.Lifestyle causes: sedentary lifestyle, tobacco use.Psychological: Performance anxiety, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and stress are common psychological causes.Medications and substances: Alcohol, illicit drugs, and nicotine are important causes of ED, but some medications also cause or worsen ED: opiates, diuretics (spironolactone), antifungals (azoles), anticonvulsants, antidepressants (SSRIs), antihistamines, H2 blocker (cimetidine) antihypertensives, nasal decongestants, and antipsychotics. Remember to ask about over-the-counter medications and supplements.Physical exam: Measure blood pressure, BMI, and a complete exam, especially a genital exam. A comprehensive genitourinary exam should include the inspection of the testicles (atrophy, varicocele, signs of hypogonadism). The penis should be inspected and palpated (look for scar tissue and Peyronie's plaques) and assessment of penile stretch/flaccid length (it is done by stretching the penis. An elastic penis is a healthy penis). Dr. Winter's expert opinion: consider a prostate exam in older patients presenting with ED.Labs: Following physical examination, some lab tests can be ordered to further evaluate possible causes of ED. -A1C and glucose levels can be ordered to look for diabetes. -Lipid panel for hyperlipidemia.-TSH should be checked for thyroid function and to rule out hypothyroidism. -Testosterone deficiency can be assessed by measuring morning serum total testosterone level, which is defined as total testosterone < 300 with signs and symptoms. -Prolactin (perform pituitary MRI in any degree of hyperprolactinemia. In patients taking medications that cause hyperprolactinemia, get MRI if prolactin is above 100) Why is it important to diagnose ED?ED can be linked to organic causes.- Glucose: ED is linked to increased fasting serum glucose levels (diabetes). People with PMH of DM are 3 times more likely to develop ED. The longer the patient had diabetes, the stronger association with ED. Fasting glucose levels are associated with the highest risk of ED. The probability of having undiagnosed DM is 1/50 in the age group 40 to 59 without ED but increases to 1/10 for those with ED.- Testosterone and obesity: Low serum testosterone levels can contribute to the link between metabolic syndrome and ED. In men with obesity, the adipose tissue enzyme aromatase is more prevalent and can convert testosterone into estradiol to cause hypogonadism. Furthermore, adipocytes can cause inflammation and recruit inflammatory cytokines, leading to impaired endothelial function and ED. - Cardiovascular disease: ED and CVD have some common risk factors: older age, HTN, dyslipidemia, smoking, obesity, and DM. ED is related to an increased risk of CVD, CAD, and stroke. Usually, it is thought that ED arises two to five years prior to CAD. If a patient develops signs and symptoms of ED before CAD, the patient can be counseled and educated to make lifestyle modifications to prevent CAD.Furthermore, men with ED are more likely to experience angina, MI, stroke, TIA, CHF, and cardiac arrhythmias when compared to their counterparts without ED. A study from 2003 suggested that patients with ED have a 75% increased risk of developing peripheral vascular disease. Studies suggest ED can predict silent CAD, and one study concluded that the incidence of CAD in men below 40 years of age with ED was seven times higher than that of the control population without ED. It is important to diagnose ED because it can be used as a marker for assessing cardiovascular risk.ED can be linked to many causes, and we as clinicians should be able to identify those causes to prescribe a more specific treatment. Not all ED will respond to “the blue pill”. We will talk about treatment in another episode. Conclusion: Now we conclude episode number 115, “Erectile Dysfunction Diagnosis.” Male sexual health sometimes can be taboo, and patients may not fully disclose personal issues like erectile dysfunction. Andrew and Adrianna explained that an open discussion about erectile dysfunction can help you diagnose underlying conditions, including cardiovascular disease. Dr. Arreaza reminded us that the diagnosis of erectile dysfunction should prompt a deeper investigation in most cases before you attribute it to psychological factors. This week we thank Hector Arreaza, Andrew Kim, Adriana Rodriguez, and Fiona Axelsson.

In The Terrible We: Thinking with Trans Maladjustment (Duke UP, 2022), Cameron Awkward-Rich thinks with the bad feelings and mad habits of thought that persist in both transphobic discourse and trans cultural production.

Here we are dealing with new allegation's in the latest chapter of the Hockey Canada saga. A woman alleges she was sexually assaulted in London, Ont. in March, 2018 by two men, one a Western University hockey player and the second a minor-league pro player, and she alleges she was discouraged by London police from pressing charges in both cases. This is not connected to the sexual assault allegations in London from June, 2018 involving eight former Canadian Hockey League players, that blew this case open. But this latest woman went to police, wanted charges laid, and told TSN she was told it was too much work and they couldn't guarantee her privacy if the person is acquitted. We spoke with Laurie Hepburn, Executive Director of the Halton Women's Place, about why many women are hesitant to come forward and report sexual assault to police.

In Black Disability Politics (Duke UP, 2022) Sami Schalk explores how issues of disability have been and continue to be central to Black activism from the 1970s to the present. Dr. Schalk shows how Black people have long engaged with disability as a political issue deeply tied to race and racism. She points out that this work has not been recognized as part of the legacy of disability justice and liberation because Black disability politics differ in language and approach from the mainstream white-dominant disability rights movement. Drawing on the archives of the Black Panther Party and the National Black Women's Health Project alongside interviews with contemporary Black disabled cultural workers, Dr. Schalk identifies common qualities of Black disability politics, including the need to ground public health initiatives in the experience and expertise of marginalized disabled people so that they can work in antiracist, feminist, and anti-ableist ways. Prioritizing an understanding of disability within the context of white supremacy, Dr. Schalk demonstrates that the work of Black disability politics not only exists but is essential to the future of Black liberation movements. Dr. Sami Schalk is Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is the author of Bodymind Reimagined: Disability, Race, Gender in Black Women's Speculative Fiction (Duke University Press, 2018).

She's also hosted Sportsnet's Olympic and tennis coverage, and YES, she covered Serena Williams' last dance, and YES, we will dig into the experience! Caroline has been with Rogers Sportsnet for a decade now, hired right after graduation. Two years into her career, Caroline was offered a job anchoring Sportsnet Central in Vancouver and moved across the country, taking a huge leap of faith. She's been back in Toronto with Sportsnet since 2016, covering several sports, interviewing, reporting, anchoring and blazing trails for women in sports media. From covering the Olympics to Serena's last dance, she's become a powerful voice in sports and it's been incredible watching her journey from Fanshawe to national sports coverage. It was really cool hearing about Caroline's transition out of school because we attended the same joint degree & diploma program in London, ON at Fanshawe College and Western University, where we both graduated with a diploma in broadcast journalism and a bachelor's degree from UWO!

The contributors to Queer Kinship: Race, Sex, Belonging, Form (Duke UP, 2022) assert the importance of queer kinship to queer and trans theory and to kinship theory. In a contemporary moment marked by the rising tides of neoliberalism, fascism, xenophobia, and homo- and cis-nationalism, they approach kinship as both a horizon and a source of violence and possibility. The contributors challenge dominant theories of kinship that ignore the devastating impacts of chattel slavery, settler colonialism, and racialized nationalism on the bonds of Black and Indigenous people and people of color. Among other topics, they examine the “blood tie” as the legal marker of kin relations, the everyday experiences and memories of trans mothers and daughters in Istanbul, the outsourcing of reproductive labor in postcolonial India, kinship as a model of governance beyond the liberal state, and the intergenerational effects of the adoption of Indigenous children as a technology of settler colonialism. Queer Kinship pushes the methodological and theoretical underpinnings of queer theory forward while opening up new paths for studying kinship. Tyler Bradway is Associate Professor of English at the State University of New York, Cortland, and author of Queer Experimental Literature: The Affective Politics of Bad Reading.
