I Like Girls

In November 2022, after almost two years of dealing with pockets of targeted harassment on social media, Zippie Githaiga, aka Spicy, chose to log off from her social media accounts. The Kenyan producer and radio presenter had been subjected to cyberbullying by bloggers and social media users due to her choice of wearing a short blue dress during one of her radio interviews.

In this episode, Spicy discusses the impact that this experience had on her as well as how she managed to find solace amidst the deluge of hurtful comments. She also addresses the societal tendency to exert control over women's decisions, including personal matters such as their clothing preferences.
