Season Three Episode Three
Host Thoughts on Things Women Don't Want
When Adam brought up the idea to talk about things women don’t want and the male audacity, I thought…why!?! We literally talk about it on every episode.
Crazy enough, one thing I realized was that hugging is something that might seem okay, but in a lot of professional instances isn’t alright at all. Some things I just never realized made women feel uncomfortable, and as a woman, that’s how far behind or blinded I was by the hugging and touching examples that were brought up during this episode.
I think we still have a long way to go as a society, but speaking up and sharing ways to improve are doing to do a lot more good than harm.
If men who listen to this episode don’t get defensive but try to learn, they might actually improve their behavior in substantial ways. The first time I thought about the forced hug, it blew my mind and was a major catalyst for shifting my behavior to recognize and appreciate boundaries and women’s agency.
