021: Gender Equality is the Way to Unscrew Women

Overview

From the Korea where women have to get plastic surgery just to meet the specs for the “good” jobs and from the state where requiring health providers to bury or cremate fetal remains still gets pushed as a precedent despite the concept being stricken down by the Judiciary twice, this is MēMē Call. In this episode, Paul and Wayne dissect some key points about gender equality, and they talk about how men can lean-in with women without losing their man card.

“The Female Eunuch” by Germaine Greer

Women with strong personalities tend to get chastised, regardless of what issue or which side of an issue they take.

Insults flung at women are more likely to be ad hominem attacks.

“Flow” by Elissa Stein and Susan Kim

MMC021-Gender Equality

Society treated women in a pretty shitty way, and in some ways, society still does.

These days, you don’t hear about menstruating young women locked in cages for four years at a time.

“We Should All Be Feminists” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

MMC021-Gender Equality

Feminism is still necessary despite the victories that have brought us to the level of gender equality we see in the Western world.

It is beneficial for us as a society to integrate the baseline concepts of feminism as a standard.

“Unscrewed” by Jaclyn Friedman

MMC021-Gender Equality

There’s this idea that women want to maintain the “privileges” they have while removing the privileges that men have.

Privilege gets assigned by society, not the individuals in society.

For a very long time, men have dominated society.

Conflicts occur because there are both men and women who dig in their fucking heels and refuse to listen to each others’ perspectives.
