Janet Mock has been frequently finding herself at the top of the LGBT news cycle these days, and with good reason. While Janet Mock has been a guest on Pivot's Take Part Live, the journalist and The Advocate's 40 Under 40 honoree is taking on the host seat this week with Jacob Soboroff and Meghan McCain.
Mock inserted herself into a couple of Sobromoff-McCain shouting matches during the show as the voice of reason. This week, the trio talked about the controversy at O.K. Cupid, online dating sextortion, feminism on The Bachelorette, ethnic plastic surgery, and Jesse Ventura's lawsuit against a deceased Navy SEAL.
Here is a clip, but Wednesday's episode is available here:
