Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Having this kind of you where they say that the only thing that that we're concerned about is, you know. Not being in kind of diverse workplaces or right or whatnot? I worrying about a diverse workplace, a very Bittel class, c. thing. It's slate and it's true. I worked before I moved to New York. I had a much more diverse workplaces when I was working in catering and restaurants and things like that. It does seem that the middle class has different kind of concerns in particular when it comes to gender and you hear like a a lot of women sort of talk about domestic labor against social reproduction is really popular among women who I'm pretty sure could afford maids and nannies. But you know, again, technology being a big one time off being a big one. We are completely aware of how to close, say the domestic labor gap. We've seen it basically happened in the investment in public sector jobs in. An expansive welfare state, etc. N. yet, it's kind of treated like this, this secret mystery and the ideas we have to do consciousness raising with men. And I think maybe a lot of people don't want to accept that. There's a certain limitation to socialism, which is that it won't yell at your man for you, and you have to yell at your own man, but also it's about power. It's about, I mean, like it. Just the answers are so simple in that. Generally people treat other people worse if they have less power and leverage it's easier to. Yeah. So we negotiated different household contract, right? Like my girlfriend has always earn more money than me. Therefore, I normally come home early and like cook, but if she plays the light Bill cooking that easy on sixty three. Yeah, you know, you're it who's getting over. Yeah. And I think also there's a sense of universalism that that is very. Misleading when it runs along kind of identity lines, like. I've been a woman without money, and I've been a woman with money and I gotta say, being a woman with money, it's not that bad. I don't think anyone thinks that you know the kind of. And when I say media class, I'm referring to establish people who have a nice desk and everything. We all know the majority of people who work in the media. Now our slinging content for like, you know, twenty eight thousand years for sixty hours a week, but really established people who we've elected to talk about being Latino or being black or being a woman. They're not particularly Representative of the, you know, the major concerns of those identity groups which are largely material. And for me, the feminists project and sort of with relation to men in kind of a heterosexual context. It's like socialism gives you the power to leave and when you're able to leave, they got to be a lot nicer to you. And also, I mean the old demand of the independent labour party in the nineteen thirties titled, oh, I manifest was socialism in our time. Oh, that's cute. I mean that that like that optimism, I think is missing from the left, and I think makes a lot of sense just on messaging grounds, right? If we really want to combat racism really want to combat sexism, let's say like we're going to have a society without racism without sexism in our time. I think what sexism actually might take a little bit longer at them with racism that existed for longer. But we've actually seen that in. Scandinavia, the equalization of a lot of these levels of household. Were just by the combination of state intervention and women having high labor market participation and and whatnot..
