In all of the news surrounding gross men who get rightfully outed as sexual predators, I read somewhere that a lot of these men pretend to be feminists (using that word very loosely) or like they sympathize with the female experience in their professional work to compensate for the fact that they are pure evil behind close doors. That got me thinking about this episode. It’s such a nuanced look at what it’s like to be a woman in a professional setting. Like, its SO GOOD and gut wrenching and complicated and I’m like how Sway? It’s so disillusioning at first to know that one of the writers of this episode and creator of the show was so gross to one of his colleagues.
Btw, the other two writers of this episode are Lisa Albert and Janet Leahy aka two broads. So I guess that’s why women are portrayed in such genuine way.
