Can someone show me a similarly frank conversation about rape culture in any of your progressive faves….
I think it’s super interesting this convo is happening between two men of colour BECAUSE they’re so much more likely to be accused of or picked up during or seen as rapists because of the historical necessities of white supremacy.
Like would a conversation like this happen between two white men of the same era, or now, did it, has it would it?
17% of cardiac surgeons are women, 17% of tenured professors are women. It just goes on and on. And isn’t that strange that that’s also the percentage of women in crowd scenes in movies? What if we’re actually training people to see that ratio as normal so that when you’re an adult, you don’t notice?
…We just heard a fascinating and disturbing study where they looked at the ratio of men and women in groups. And they found that if there’s 17% women, the men in the group think it’s 50-50. And if there’s 33% women, the men perceive that as there being more women in the room than men.
