Connections: Discussing dating culture in 2020

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

Author and social commentator Phoebe Maltz Bovy offered a stinging critique of dating culture in 2020, and it has sparked debate about the new norms of dating. Maltz Bovy is particularly troubled by the shaming that can go viral on social media.

But her concerns opened up conversation about other changing norms, including questions about when it's appropriate to ask someone out in person; taking no for an answer; and more. Our guests discuss it. In studio:

  • Allison O’Malley, domestic violence prevention advocate and educator
  • Megan Barrett, certified sex therapist with the Rochester Center for Sexual Wellness
  • Jessica Lewis, creator of Single Dope Black Chick
  • Aliza Leit, junior at the College of the Atlantic in Maine
  • Regan Wagner, senior at Nazareth College
