You guys, you’ll need all the chocolate for this ’cause we’ll be talking about the myth of the friendzone and all the misogyny connected to it. It’s ugly.
What do the “friendzone”, toxic masculinity, and the “incels” have in common? Everything!
The domestic terrorism that we have seen perpetuated by men, unhappy with their relationships, on innocent bystanders may be the most extreme expression of misogynistic violence perpetrated by those who consider themselves victimized by the “friendzone”. But the toxic masculinity and misogyny is pervasive and is part of all women’s experiences at one point or another.
In this episode we talk about institutionalize misogyny, how popular culture perpetuates unsafe, unhealthy relationships and what we can do about it.
