Junot Diaz: Everyone favors boys in our society

Check out Junot Diaz from last week’s Talking Volumes.

“Patriarchy can’t work if dudes have to do the work of patriarchy,” Diaz said. “If men actually had to make patriarchy work…man, that would be a pay cut. We farm that out to everybody else.”

Sounds like a lecture, but it’s not. It’s very funny:
