I'm happy that you chimed in here, and I'm not surprised that these guys let
their wives out to ride. I don't really think I implied that, but I do see how
you might think that I have a major problem with the way the video deals with
the social aspects of how women/mothers access time for recreation, or
specifically riding as @zigak:disqus called me out on. I don't have a major
problem with that, just a small one. It was one thing said among a bunch of
friends that in that context is of little consequence. It's not of much
consequence in the vid either, but no way would I have left it in there if I
was directing/editing. I just see it as casually contributing to a far too
common aspect of gender unfairness. It's not extreme in nature, but the
commonality of men/dad's saying that their wives need to let them out (without
acknowledging their wives' needs) makes it pretty significant, I think. That
people don't call these sorts of things out, I think speaks to the
pervasiveness of this sort of thing, as opposed to the obvious black and white
type stuff to do with gender. And really, I figured a little discussion might
be good, and I might learn something from a fresh perspective. Thanks.
