The BL Clinic
The BL ClinicFeb 05, 2023
The BL Clinic receives a patient who came to the clinic in 2022, and hasn't left the Clinic yet. It's the GMMTV show Vice Versa! Sister Unity likes it, mostly because Jimmy is in it, but both Dr. Jose and Sister Unity think GMMTV could have done better. We talk about why Vice Versa was not as successful as it could have been, and we discuss how it could have been improved.

PD We apologize for the audio issues. This will be the last episode we record using CleanFeed. Our plan is to move to another platform which should help a lot with the audio clarity. Also, I (Dr. Reyes) apologize for our long absence, but I had to deal with some personal issues (I will tell you in the next podcast!). Thankfully, I am back and should be able to produce more of these episodes. Please support the podcast by downloading our episodes and tell your BL friends about us! We need your support!!!
Toxic Masculinity in BL: Toxic semes, toxic ukes and toxic producers
Sister Unity and Dr. Jose are alarmed at the number of cases of Toxic Masculinity Syndrome (TMS). Most of the cases that we have seen at the clinic are the toxic Semes who want to subdue the Uke to their will. However, some TMS cases have good prognosis, like the Transformative Toxic Masculinity. Others, have terrible prognosis, like those in which the entire production is toxic. Join Sister Unity and Dr. Jose as they discuss the latest cases of Toxic Masculinity, from Cutie Pie to Secret Crush on You, while taking a look back at the first cases, such as Love Sick and Love by Chance!
