One comment on “Episode 21: This One’s For the Girls

    Though I haven’t experienced it on the same level as a woman, I am also familiar with some of this. There’s no quicker way to make me dislike a person than for them to insist I smile. I caught that little thing from Jessica Jones as well.

    Perhaps the only real note to add to this one is that these stereotypes and prejudices damage even those they seek to empower. Just as it was noted by a civil rights leader (I believe Martin Luther King, Jr., but I’ve been wrong before and do not wish to put words into his mouth), becoming an oppressor hurts someone too. It turns an otherwise reasonable person into someone willing to send dogs to attack people. It makes them participate in a thousand different daily forms of oppression against people they don’t really wish any harm upon.

    Perhaps people will finally see it for themselves, now that it has been so thoroughly dragged into the spotlight by their own ignorance, idiocy, and apathy.

    We have to hope that at least something good can come of these times, after all.
