Men often struggle to understand all the pressures that women feel, and the same is true for women. However, not many people are brave enough to stand up to comedian Neal Brennan and the person behind the ‘Chapelle’s Show’ when he says something completely out of hand. Thankfully, Amy Poehler is there to stand up for all of us.
Neal say down with Amy for his show ‘The Approval Matix’ and they discussed what are men supposed to be now. They discussed how hard it can be to figure life out sometimes, and Amy had the perfect answer.
Neal discussed how maddening is to constantly deal with opposing messages about how to be and how to act, and Amy had the perfect answer:
“Yeah, bro, welcome to the party! We’ve been here a looong time.”
“This feeling that you’re having right now — which it’s like, ‘I have to be all things,’ — it’s a feeling that women have every day in their whole lives. So you’re just starting to experience it now. … I’m glad you’re finally experiencing it as a white male.” – she said.
She then followed with an advice of her own:
“If you can speak about what you care about to a person you disagree with, without denigrating them or insulting them, then you may actually be heard.”
As every woman knows, living up to the impossible standards is an age-old problem, but now we can rock the boat together!
