    Eff the Patriarchy
    Content Warnings: Adult language

    During this episode we discuss:
    Jaime and Kevin run down the many side effects of a patriarchal society. They discuss studies done on the impact of a patriarchy on health, physical and mental. Your co-hosts also discuss their theories on how the patriarchy came about and how it is shaping social norms. They try to tackle the questions: Can it be changed? Why hasn’t it changed?


    Their expertise in regards to the Patriarchy? As Americans, they are living in it. Does wallowing in Patriarchy provide expertise?
    Their qualifications to discuss the topic? Considering the vastly different impacts the Patriarchy has had on our clever co-hosts, they aren’t qualified, but they sure are opinionated.
    Basically, anything they discuss? Don’t take their word for it - but they hope you enjoy the show!
