Totally stolen from Betul at Counter Minds. Who also has the latest on Darwin’s plight in Turkey.
Also, see this follow up on the women in careers discussion by A K8, A Cat, A Mission.
If it’s a woman’s dress shoes, you’ll be blistered, you’ll fall on your ass if there’s any mud or snow, and if it’s cold or wet, so will be your feet.
My entire self in one woman’s single shoe? I’ll give it a shot. Hell, I’m part way there as it is anyway.
Little over the top dontcha think? It does grab your attention though.
To begin with, I couldn’t figure it out. I thought it was some weird brand of Turkish humor or something. Then things came together. Yeah, it’s kinda “over the top”, but it’s also, in many ways, right on target. Kinda makes (some) people think!
Yeah, it is over the top. The fact that nothing in the video is an overstatement, makes the whole issue over the top. And I am glad it does.
Here is a real life example:
If it seems over the top it is because it is so unbelievable to see female identities doing these male things and visa versa, to this extent. I agree with Betul, that it is actually kinda average culturally speaking. It is probably watered down for certain contexts, maybe a bit overdone for other contexts. But you can’t really have one production like this that matches all contexts.
