22: BOY MAN MAN (FEATURING GIRLBOSS FEMINISM)
Nothing personnel, woman
FEMINIST ICON FRANK HERBERT
HAS DONE IT AGAIN, WITH ANOTHER FANTASIC AND WOKE CHAPTER, OF DUNE!
WHAT DO THE FREMEN THINK OF WOMEN? ARE WE GENIUSES OR SHOULD WE BE TRULY EMBARRASSED AT OUR LACK OF AWARENESS? HOW MANY GIRLBOSS MOMENTS CAN JESSICA HAVE BEFORE SOMEONE RESPECTS HER?
NONE OF THESE QUESTIONS ANSWERED, AND MORE, IN DUNEIVERSITY!
This chapter is the most Dune-ass chapter of Dune we've encountered so far and we have almost nothing to say about it! We hope you enjoy us cramming the chapter before we record, because we are going to continue to do so!
We marvel at our own ignorance, and also Frank's ignorance and his careless use of language that has cultural significance! We vomit at the sight of any heterosexuality in Dune! We learn that the strength of a woman can, indeed, be boundless (we didn't know this before now), and we have the grand revelation that Dune is an "epic cycle" just like "The Iliad", whatever that is! No one has ever come to realise this before.
Idiot Paul is scrombling around and being a precocious boy-man-teen-guy, we meet Chani who probably won't come up again, and we repeat the same quote from this chapter with increased frenzy.
No segments this week cause we were in a hurry! Maybe we'll do them next week, but who knows!
