Talking About Gay Marriage and Prostitution on The Ashley F. Miller Show

Ashely F. Miller of the blog Ashley F. Miller hosted her inaugural episode of The Ashley F. Miller Show and Mavaddat Javid and I were her guests.

First we speculated about the prospects for this week’s Supreme Court rulings on Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.

Then we talked about themes brought up in American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, a documentary Ashley recently saw about storied activist Grace Lee Boggs, and The New Black, a documentary about gay marriage and the African American community. In talking about the former documentary we discussed competing ideals for achieving social change and in discussing the latter documentary, we asked whether gay marriage should be as centralized an issue to the gay rights movement as it has been.

Finally, in the last section, we discussed whether prostitution should be either outright legalized or merely decriminalized, and whether prostitution could ever be a meaningfully consensual and non-violating job for a prostitute.
