291 – Bitch Planet: Extraordinary Machine

Bitch Planet: Extraordinary Machine

The last title in our ‘Turns Out It Was Good’ series is “Bitch Planet: Extraordinary Machine” by Kelly Sue DeConnick. In this sexploitation-style dystopian satire, non-conforming women are sent away for “rehabilitation” on Bitch Planet. We discuss the constructs of gender, sexism, feminism, and intersectionality through this unique sci-fi lens. We get deep and we get a little ranty. Plus, there’s a little Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 discussion up top.
