Episode 3: Gender

This episode of Postmodern Sitcom talks about gender portrayed in 80s sitcoms and how stereotypes affect Generation X’s opinions today. As I mentioned in this post the other day, today’s younger generations are more gender non-conformist than ever before. My guest, Siege, and I talk about gender by watching Punky Brewster, and I learn a lot about how Millennials and younger are changing how the world views gender. Siege’s mindset and the frank conversation opened my eyes. I hope this opens yours too.

Here are some of the good resources I use for this episode:
Hollywood Diversity Report 2019
The Status of Women in U.S. Media 2019
