REGENCY HOUSE PARTY
I might be about to reveal the fact that my parents only let me watch ABC as a kid, but this historical/dating reality TV show is pretty hilarious. All the women have to deal with cranky old chaperones who tell them who to date, and the guys are obnoxious drunks the whole time. They aren’t even allowed to talk to each other for most of the day anyway, because that would have been very uncouth. One of the guys is openly romancing/sleeping with one of the chaperones. And the best love story is between the lady’s maid and the hermit who lives in the grounds.
So I’ve just started Fine Arts Honours at university, and suddenly the gender divide has gone from like 20% guys (undergrad) to more like 50%*. And they are dominating group discussions even though we were talking about fairly gender neutral topics (the death of the author). Also we had to choose topics to do a short talk about each week’s readings, and some guy chose the feminism week… Imma join the guerilla girls srsly.
*Granted I am making assumptions about people’s gender here.
