On this week’s DoubleX Gabfest, Invisibilia co-host Hanna Rosin and New York magazine’s Noreen Malone are joined by the New York Times’ Ross Douthat to discuss Heritage Academy’s refusal to let a pregnant student walk at graduation because she violated the school’s morality pledge. They also discuss if the women of the Girls generation regret the sexual revolution.

Slate Plus: Is it sexist how we’re asking Hillary Clinton to apologize for the election?
