Conservative street journalist Austen Fletcher, known as “Fleccas,” has produced a series of videos wherein unsuspecting actors read real, hard facts about controversial issues. In the latest video, Fleccas takes on the false narratives surrounding third-wave feminism, asking actors to read statistics and facts that, for example, debunk the mythical “gender wage gap” and so-called “male privledge.”
Not all the actors were open to shifting their ideology based on the facts; one feminist refused to accept that the “gender wage gap” basically disappears when education, position, and hours worked are factored in.
“I thought this was like, feminism,” she protests. “I’m realizing what this is now.”
“Everyone knows that women make less than men. Like, we’ve all done the same job as men and for whatever reason have earned less,” she adds.
Others were open to changing their thinking upon learning the statistical facts.
“The numbers are so different than what I thought they were,” one female actress stated, looking stunned by the data.
“And yet it’s being advertised in media that women are not making as much as men are,” remarked another female actress.
The sole male actor noted, “Where I teach, they are starting a ‘gender studies’ program, but they’re not doing one class specific to men.”
Another actress suggested inequality needs to be “dealt with on a universal level, and not victimizing one and not vilifying another.”
