On this week’s episode of the Waves, Hanna, June, and Noreen answer listeners’ voicemails for our end-of-summer call-in show, offering advice and ranking anecdotes on the “is it sexist” scale. Together, the hosts tackle dilemmas ranging from aggressively apolitical mommy groups to what to do if you still love a TV show that’s been tainted by the crimes of its creator.

Slate Plus: Is it sexist to market products toward women with the message that “you’re doing it wrong”?
