What's the Deal with Women's Studies? Feminist YouTube content creator marinashutup, who is majoring in Women's Studies herself, answers various questions about taking this major.
I got to say, I actually do like Marina. We do not agree on much, but I like her because, unlike other YouTube Feminists such as Anita Sarkeesian, and Rebecca Watson, Marina has a sense of humor and can laugh at herself. So kudos in terms of being a real person!
She does seem to acknowledge that many other people see Women's Studies as a completely useless major, and me being a shitlord, have to agree. Marina Watanabe herself, doesn't quite seem to think it qualifies you to do nothing.
The biggest red flag for me is when Marina started to talk about the privilege that her classmates use to being to class. Not so much that, but what raised the red flag was she said that after a talk about it, the issue was corrected. This makes feminism look like a religion! Dissenting opinions need to be corrected, apparently.
The question asking what can people do with a Women's Studies degree was completely dodged by Marina. Mentioning one job that required a Women's Studies degree was not possible.
To me, it seems like the classes, as she described them, were all a huge feminist echo chamber.
Bottom line, Women's Studies degrees qualifies you to do absolutly nothing, other then becoming a priestess in the religion known as feminism. I think Marina is better off with an English degree. At least she could use that to become a teacher or something.
