" You really think women cared that much about queefing? Is that really what you think this has all been about? This has been about women having a little bit of fun for once at your expense. For just this one time we could be the immature ones to make you feel uncomfortable. But no, you just couldn’t let us have that one little thing, could you? Because even though things are getting better for women, you still think of us as lesser people sometimes, and we always have to prove ourselves twice as hard. Congratulations, guys. [begins to sob] For getting your way… again. “
-South Park, season 13 episode 4 “Eat pray queef”
I’m sincerely baffled at how actually touching this episode was … I’ve always been a big fan of South Park, not only because their sense of humor is sharp and deeper than it seems, but also because they always have been equal about everything, giving a lot of relativism about some of the big problems of this world ; but the thing is, this time, Matt Stone and Trey Parker gave us a really feminist point of view about a problem that was kind of stupid (farts VS queefs) - and of course, this was just a metaphor about how many sexist double standards still exist in the 21th century - and I think that the side they choose to exploit in this episode is very powerful considering that the creators of South Park rarely gives their point to just one side of the problem. Usually, they go for the point that each party has to work and give an effort to make the better solution in the end … but this time, they made the men acknowledge that they were the biggest part of what made this world a hard place for women and, if men and women are equals in the end, it is a time for men to work a little bit harder than women has been to make this statement a reality.
Bravo, Matt Stone and Trey Parker. I respect you even more than before.
