Brain Food – Episode 71

In this episode, I review Esther Frisner’s Chicks in Chainmail feminist minded, fantasy fiction.

Sadly, like a lot of media from the 90s, it does not hold up well to the test of time, especially with its rather narrow application of feminism that, through omission, does not include any other kind of woman who is not white, and so very little who aren’t straight and cisgender.

What I found the most frustrating about the anthology as a whole is that, somehow, there are almost no stories where a woman is single and happy. She almost always has, finds, or has had been in a relationship.

The music for the ending theme came from the No Copyright Music youtube channel, and you can listen to it here.
