This week the Smart Girls talk about how social media has perverted our previously commonly agreed upon social boundaries. April just discovered Adam Carolla’s podcast and the ladies talk about an interesting proposal for government marriage laws.
Also, April explains her run-in with the police at a concert recently and why 2019 America is supposed to be – and this is a quote – “genderish”

    back in the day, governments encouraged more population/settlements as a way of controlling territory. It is the old possession is 9/10ths of the law thing. Now, borders are fixed/militarized and more settlers are not needed to hold territory.

    “Hanged”. That’s the word you’re looking for. A serial rapist deserves to be hanged, not hung. Completely different connotation.

    in the early 2000’s a local radio personality made some crack about a chimpanzee that had escaped from the local zoo in connection with the incompetence of the city politicians. Since the mayor at the time was a black man, the media accused him of a racial slur. But our then 12 or 13 year old son did not understand the controversy, since he had no idea that there had been a monkey – black man insult. So, by the media making a big deal of it, a bad stereotype that was on its way to extinction was resurrected for new generations.

    I understand that some new sports and entertainment venues are building in women’s restrooms that are larger than the men’s restrooms. 

    I think most of us are far less concerned about a woman who wants to come into a men’s restroom than we are about a man who wants to come into a women’s restroom. Though I would still be uncomfortable and embarrassed seeing a woman in the men’s restroom, I would not worry about safety, whereas I would be worried about the safety of the women in the women’s restroom if a man entered.
