Susie tries to make sense of legislator Bob Allen's wildly irrational explanation for his recent arrest on sexual solicitation charges in a public restroom. Next, in another New York City interview, Susie speaks with transgender author, playwright, and performance artist Kate Bornstein. Susie and Kate discuss Bornstein's latest book, Hello Cruel World: 101 Alternatives to Suicide for Teens, Freaks and Other Outlaws, as well as gender hierarchy and depression. Then, in the "Try This at Home" mailbag, Susie gives advice to a paranoid listener who can't decide if it's safe to have sex these days because of the mixed messages he sees in the media. Don't forget, you can send your confidential questions, feedback about the show, and requests for girly cards to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Episode 307, August 31, 2007)
