Eye-opening social experiment on privilege

by allthoughtswork

I loathe “Dr.” Phil (it’s a Ph.D, not a medical license, you puffy-faced MAGA twits, the man couldn’t diagnose a nail-biter) but this is the only footage I could find of this instructive group activity. All high school classrooms should do this with their kids at the beginning of each school year as a reminder.

How to play Patriarchy Chicken and win

by allthoughtswork

you talkin to me chicken

via

Here are the rules.

  1. Be a woman.
  2. Walk in a crowded place.
  3. When a man approaches, hold to your path, let HIM move aside for YOU.
  4. Keep walking.

Stop rolling your eyes, this is radical stuff for a gender that’s been taught to squeeze over, give way, cede their position, and generally take up as little space on planet Earth as is humanly possible. You know, to be nice. That shit erodes your self-esteem little by little over time like a million hands wearing down a banister.

Fuck that.

“I’m stonkingly rich, up yours!”

by allthoughtswork

This humorous 2007 British documentary on the class system could well have been filmed in America, with a few tweaks: Our royals are whichever celebrities are “in” this year, our wealth signaling involves dietary choices, and nobody gives a damn which accent you speak in, they only want to know which car you drive. A thick backwoods accent is easily forgiven in an Audi R8 coupe.

PS: No American would ever say “toilet” unless we’re actually in Home Depot buying one. It’s restroom, ladies room, mens room, bathroom. We only refer to our nether regions semantically.

EMOJA!

by allthoughtswork

“According to tradition, women cannot rule,” says an angry man who’s wife left him to live in Emoja.

Being given away like property after having her genitals cut off wasn’t workin’ for her, dude. Kinda like the way having old, white men decide what we can do with our uteruses here in the States isn’t working for us. 

You may not think that’s an apt comparison but it’s a slippery slope, people, it’s a slippery slope.

International Women’s Day

by duncanr

today is set aside to remind us of the shitty deal women have had to endure over the years, when compared to that enjoyed by men

this video highlights the disparity between the rights and privileges enjoyed by men and women in the UK prior to the commencement of the Great War in 1914, and how that changed as a consequence of the war – [mind you, many folk would argue that there is still work to be done to achieve equality of the sexes !]

Don’t Hold Your Breath, Ladies

by duncanr

waiting for gender pay parity

worldwide, women are generally paid less for doing the same job as men

a new report by the World Economic Forum, however, has some good news for women – the gap is closing

there is a caveat, however – http://tinyurl.com/y9bxs8lk
