Show Notes:

Michelle recreates the song of Buffy, her rebellious chicken, laying an egg. #00:01:15.4#

Hen party! About Buffy and her sisters Biscuit and Veronica. Ethel is adopted. #00:01:58.5#

What gives Michelle hope for this next generation of women coming up. #00:04:26.0#

Older husbands, daddy issues, and grad school, oh my! #00:05:56.9#

Which Sparklette swung around a stripper pole. #00:06:21.2#

Chore guilt. Assigning chores by preference or by who has time, rather than sex. #00:08:18.7#

Women: building empires, feathering nests, and doing chores, too! #00:09:10.3#

If you don’t want gender roles in household chores, then you need to NOT allow…… #00:10:33.2#

Own that shit when you want it done your way. #00:11:25.3#

It does not matter what your genitalia happens to be. #00:12:44.4#

King of workflows said “I can’t stand seeing you do this to yourself” #00:14:48.3#

Mashed potatoes in my hair, crying, but still resistant to a system. #00:14:57.8#

“Excuse me sir, please dust my tiara.” #00:15:38.6#

It’s soothing to me to be able to sweep or mop or fold laundry, something tactile and repetitive and mindless… #00:17:26.7#

Dirty… clean…fantastic! #00:17:44.9#

We tried for a minute to ‘you cook I’ll clean’ but it felt restrictive. So we just do the stuff. #00:19:02.8#

What happens when there’s no man or no woman in the relationship… #00:19:23.4#

There’s something so freeing about allowing someone to be who they are. When you are fully expressed, you’ll do the things you enjoy doing, and because you respect that person and love them, you might want to take it off their plate that day, or be of help. #00:19:51.1#

“And I’ve done a few marriages, so I’ve done that shit.” #00:20:13.5#

Mother’s rigid path. #00:20:38.6#

My rigid path. #00:20:50.7#

Women are crucified less “these days” for NOT doing this… #00:21:15.2#

Rebels in Mother’s generation… paved a path. #00:22:19.9#

When women did all the things. #00:23:36.5#

The Sparklettes sing a commercial theme song from the 70s. Wow. #00:23:53.8#

“Can I get a foot rub with that?” #00:25:11.7#
