Left-handed? That’s how daddy rolls. Partially inspired by this tweet, we expand on the apt comparisons between LGBTQ people and left-handedness. Also, are left-handed people more likely to be queer? Are they smarter? Are they more talented? Why does society hate them? We do the right thing by talking left.
(The history of left-handedness chart Kyle refers to early in the episode is in that tweet, if you want the visual.)

On the bonus Patreon segment, what does jerking off left-handed mean? Bonus content and other great perks available at patreon.com/gayishpodcast.

When you think about it, grilling is the culmination of so many straight, masculine stereotypes: fire, meat, providing for the family. And, as we discover in this episode, it has a combination patriarchal, racist, and heteronormative roots. But still, a huge metal spatula is a great Gift for Him!

Pirates are so bisexual, we’re officially proposing renaming them birates. We talk about all the wonderful gay, bi, and poly things that go down on the Island of Tortuga, the historical gender-bending bisexual female pirates that formed a throuple with John “Calico Jack” Rackham, butt pirates, matelotage, Our Flag Means Death, and the terrifying reality of modern-day pirates (and what that has in common with gay stereotypes).

Whatever consenting adults do behind closed doors is their own business… right? While we often hear this refrain to support gay issues, we test the boundaries of its truth by discussing the uncomfortable topic of incest. We cover worldwide societal norms; the Bible; the Westermarck Effect; the theory of Genetic Sexual Attraction; step-dad, step-son, and step-brother incest porn; consanguineous relationships; and, of course, the TV show Private Practice.
Remember to submit audio or written entries to our theme song contest by April 1, and check out our Pacific Northwest tour dates at gayishpodcast.com/live.
