    hellooo! just letting you know that this is obviously the tip of the iceberg, the choice of those myths is pretty random, just some things I noticed recently, and a short youtube video won't be enough to go into depth and detail of each of those topic - but hopefully it's a starting point for some interesting discussions!

      @Floor op ‘t Holt it's not out of respect but trying to say trauma in women about men. It's a form of lesbian mate guarding against men for women. Her views are full of entitlement where she feels she is the voice of all women when clearly she is the voice of 3%. She tried to claim that men scared women from wearing the corset as if that makes sense. It didn't have to be men and secondly wouldn't men want that if it makes it look better? It's inconsistent, it's personal and it shouldn't be a part of the explanation

      @Black Knight Fool yes, but I think personally that they do it out of respect. And obviously some of them are highly drawn towards breasts.

      It's lesbians that created the idea that boobs are not sexual even though they're specific to sexual reproduction and literally gender signifiers on the opposite sex. And she's using some radical feminism perspective. they're trying to say men are perverted for liking boobs

      You are not right about the boobs facts. Please look it up again. (Quote from livescience) Researchers have long speculated that humans evolved the fatty deposits around the female mammary glands for sexual reasons. ... Another long-standing theory holds that breasts evolved as a way to signal to men that the woman attached to them was nutritionally advantaged and youthful - and thus, a promising mate.

      It is interesting how easy it is in the modern-day to confuse ideas of the past. It was very important to note that class played a huge role in everyone's experience (not just women). So, our views of women 'not being allowed to work, vote, or to study what they wanted', have to be tempered with the realization that, for the majority of cases that was only a significant consideration for upper-class women. i.e. in industrial England, the majority of women either worked in a factory as a maid or in the family home (and the latter was infinitely preferable to the first two in most cases). And while they couldn't vote or study as they wanted, that was also true for the vast majority of men who worked horrible, dangerous jobs just to be considered worthy enough to deserve a family. Which is to say that the majority of people, whether male or female, had terrible, limited lives. So it's important to realize that the notions we have of female oppression were primarily propagated by rich women (the 2%) who were not allowed to vote as their rich husbands were, and who were supposed to go to finishing schools rather than study something like medicine or science, but nevertheless, lived lives of relative luxury. That this began to change by the mid-1800s should also not viewed in the isolated opinion of 'women rising up to throw off the shackles of oppression, but rather as part of a continuum of social change and general suffrage that began in the mid-1700s and continued until it eventually lead to the equal treatment of all people in the West.

    As far as understanding sex and where babies came from, it seems many would understand about how sex works from seeing animals. This would especially be the case for the working class but the upper class would still see pets and horses having sex and having babies.

    This, exactly this. Most of the feminist historical pieces give us a simplistic view on Patriarchy with a female protagonist, who is so modern for our sense, that her ultimate succeeding makes, if you think about it, the oppression of women a joke, because in these movies its so easy to end the oppression by just speaking out and all the other female characters look like dumb idiots for not doing so. Instead of giving us how women faced their difficult and oppressive historical reality and tried to find happiness, we get this Powerfantasy, which is actually not empowering at all.

    My own employer is an example of the reversal of what is considered acceptable to show in public. It's the distribution center for a successful online business (not Amazon) where shorts of extreme shortness and leggings of extreme tightness are allowed but no bare midriffs and no bare shoulders are allowed for either men or women. All the other dress standards are related to safety issues (no open toed shoes, no long, dangly anything, tying back your hair is strongly encouraged, etc.).

    I agree that women of the past are sorely misrepresented nowadays but frankly so are man. In spite of the patriarchal nature of our past most men were just as ignorant, poor or mistreated as women. If not more so at times. Only middle and high class men had it better (and so did their wives and families). The rest had just as little time as Mary the Baker. Tales of cantakerous wives and whipped husbands have been passed down since ancient Greece.

    Being purposefully made to showcase that much chest is an argument FOR it being inherently sexual, just saying.
    They just werent as stuck up about it as the lower body.
    If no one cared about the upper body AT ALL the chest area would be just as covered up as mens,
    Rather then dresses tailored to expose those areas SPECIFICALLY. effort was obviously put into them to do that.......

    2070 stereotypes will be like: People in the 2020s were on their phones constantly half of the time. Also, there was a cold propaganda war between generations, they hated each other. In towns, everyone had intercourse with each other after meeting on phones. The whole world became a police state during corona and the elderly almost went extinct.

    This makes me think of my grandpa. He was wonderful in a few senses. One was that he was very strongly for women's rights, sexual liberation and basically all of the human rights stuff that happened in the past 100 years. When I came out accidentally (cause my nan was nagging me about contraceptives) as ace and trans - he stood up and clapped, shouting "Bravo!" xD
    One time when we were driving to see other family, we somehow got into sexual awareness.
    He was so honestly consternated about the fact that when he was a teen and in his early twenties - in the 30's and 40's - women his age didn't often know about sex.
    These things spread from boy to boy, as well as their fathers teaching them. On the other hand, he had found out to his horror, the women his age often had no clue. They were just told to not touch and kiss boys, basically. As well as encouraged *not* to speak of it.
    He was all kinds of upset for their sakes, so as far as I understood he started explaining sex to all his female aquaintances and encouraging them to spread the information. Because dammit, they need to know what they're getting into!
    He was *still*, these 60 years later, so mad about the fact that these women's mothers hadn't taught them about how children were made or about (the admittedly new concept) of contraceptives. Because this both put them at risk and it led to many of them ending up in loveless marriages due to feeling ashamed over getting pregnant.
    This was in Sweden, a country that likes to brag about being a world leader in these things. (9_9 Likes to brag, not so much to make sure that's how it is.) Not rurally. He grew up in a rich part of the capital.
    These things (what is manly, what is appropriate, sexual knowledge) obviously go in waves. People are obviously gonna be people. Or, I wish it was obvious to some. But humans seem to like things on a straight line, going from 0-100. So that's how we often paint history out to be, creating myths like these.

    She's correct. There was a time in the USA that the bust wasn't all that interesting because people saw them a lot. Ladies were not shy about nursing babies anywhere since, well, since babies were invented. My Grandmother told me so. I still think a towel or a baby blanket to cover a lady feeding her baby in public is best. My grandmother was born in 1897 and lived a very long time.

      P.S. Don't forget that the world was an agrarian and farming world until the industrial age. Kids grew up watching and learning how to breed animals and saw them born along side farming. If a person wanted food, a person had to make it themselves with farming and breeding animals.

    Using my own family history, I can confirm that most of the corrections are true. Woman were never required to follow a Manuel of rules, however most of them wouldn't have needed to as they were brought up with good/strict parenting and desired to properly maintain themselves. Most relationships were quite equal in power structures - with the woman ruling the roost - my great, great grandmother kept everything ticking, with over a dozen children in the house so that without her the entire structure of her husband's life would fall apart so men and woman maintained very simular relationships to modern couples. However, it is true that abusive relationships existed. Her father's father was utterly rotten - one day, he killed his son's dog and hung it on the tree for him before he came home from school and used to beat his family. He would inspect the washing and if one collar wasn't perfectly ironed, he would throw it on the floor and say 'wash it again.' So, social relationships existed just as ours today just on a more mutual basis rather than an equal one.

    I know two women that were born in the 1950s (not related). Both got pregnant as teenager by much older men (10 years age difference) when they were older teenagers. Both had no idea what happened to them when they started menstruating. (in one case the older sister in law had to explain it to the teenager). One of the women said: My husband (she married him although that was a less than ideal marriage) did sex-ed in action with me.
    so being clueless was the norm for many (and these were low income women living in a more rural area), often the parents came from a background of farming).
    They knew that it was "wrong" to go walking alone with a teenage boy, or to wear certain clothes. (Another story in that age group the Catholic priest objected to girls wearing pants, even on a long walk to school in cold winter. That woman - a third one, and her parents did not mind, they were of the Protestant minority in that region). That priest was known (among the female pupils) to reach under the skirt of a gril and pat her behind.
    That was one of the women that got pregnant early - I asked her why she did not tell her mother. (who was a devout Catholic, and very ashamed of nudity, bodily functions, let alone sex).
    She said: I knew it was weird, I would have prefered him not doing it, it did not go any further so it was not that traumatic (at least not in an obvious manner). But I - and the other girls - we would not even have known how to formulate that. it was not possible to tell and likely it would not have helped.
    I think sex ed then meant to instill a feeling of shame into teenagers: about menstruation, and about their ability to lead men astray. Something was wrong with their appeal to men, it had to be carefully monitored and if something "untoward" happened (but they had no idea what that would be in any concrete terms) it was shameful for _them._
    Of course that did not help to avoid pregnancies, if the father did not marry her hastily she was the slut.
    And females of good society were supervised All. The. Time.
    usually young men of good society knew they could not mess with _those_ girls, so they preyed upon the female servants, and women of the lower classes. Which were easy targets and did not cause a scandal.
    If a young couple wanted to force their parents to allow a marriage, they could elope. If society knew that young woman had travelled with her fiance / boyfriend alone for a while - she was compromized (even if nothing had happened). of course the problem with that: they would be disinherited if that was possible (in some case they got the inheritance and it was written down, but often the parents, grandparents could do as they please). And usually that meant that the doors of good society were closed to them, they became social pariahs. Same for a divorced woman even if her husband was terrible, openly cheated on her, etc.
    let alone that she was unfaithful or even suspected of that. And she lost access to the children.

    I appreciate you talking about oppression in earlier eras. There's this strange perception that men have timelessly "oppressed" women for completely arbitrary reasons (you know, toxic masculinity or the like), as if the entire world was there for the taking but for those pesky men. It's a retroactive and ignorantly ideological look at the past through the lens of the present. It wasn't terribly long ago that contraception was non-existent and both the infant and mother mortality rate was inconceivably high; that social welfare did not exist in any conceivable way but through the charity of the church, meaning there was a very real need for survival by way of integrating into the right family and finding a spouse with marketable skills since childcare was all-consuming for many years; that daily survival and function was difficult enough that it consumed a large majority of one's time, the homekeeping naturally falling on mothers by virtue of being at home with children and understandably being less interested or capable of working 80 hour weeks on a farm or in a factory; that class systems (found in nearly every culture as far as I estimate) were confining enough as to essentially place strict limitations on all but the most brilliant minds' potential career options by way of birth, etc. Women also didn't have to die in wars, foolish or legitimate, or engage in many of the violences of life in a remotely comparable way to men in almost any period (though childbearing in the 17th century was violence enough). There are always exceptions, but exceptions are not the rule.
    As you mentioned, it completely lacks nuance and understanding, and disregards incredible individuals going as far back as i.e. Hildegaard von Bingen.

    Most people in the old days were focused on survival. And you telling me raising 6 children without running water and electricity is something to be looked down upon and she should have at work where very little safety requirements kept people alive? Marriage was a partnership for men and women. Men would earn the money and the woman would manage the money, raise children, cook, clean the house, and have a side business maybe of being a tailor.

    I honestly don’t get why people think breasts are such an issue. Would anyone care if a women was seen with one of these 🍼? I doubt it. But, guess what, breasts are just a natural version of a bottle. Or, more accurately, bottles are an artificial version of a breast. Seriously people, breasts are just a milk producing glad encased in a bag of fat that have evolved for feeding babies. That’s it.
    Not to mention the double of it being standard socially acceptable for men to be topless in public but not women. Can we just grow up already?

    About that sex education: if you deal with animals - of the mammal kind - that have not been neutered and there are ones of both sexes you damn well will see them doing it, and back then when farm animals weren't just restricted to some big factory farms, and there were horses everywhere, and of course the upper classes had their pet dogs and cats - pretty good chance most of them had seen both the sex part and how the next generation was born, especially as a child because children tend to be damn curious and might try to sneak a peak if they weren't invited or allowed to watch.
    And from that it shouldn't take too much guessing that basically, humans do procreate pretty much the exact same way. At least you'd be told by your mates once in school if you hadn't figured it out yourself by then.

    The idea that no women fought or were important in wars is also wrong.
    Russian women did both fight in Partisan parties during the Napoleonic wars and even as militia in the Second World War.
    Almost all nations had women as medics, and to say that they were not a part of the war is disrespectfull.
    TLDR
    Women has both fought and kept soldiers alive in wars.

    I love these videos! Love your distinction between then and now of life. I did find it interesting the clothing choices in Outlander season 2, when they are in France, to find it’s not too strange

    those times in which the system did not recognise or respect women makes sense would not leave a record of them, but women weren't about to live for the whims of the system and had better things to do than wait around for it to change v_v

    it should be noted that many women banded together to protest being 'forced to vote', the *Women Against Suffrage,* who attached themselves to the universal suffrage movement, the *SuffraGISTS* .
    the feminists of the day actively broke up the W.A.S. and disrupted Suffragists, *who wanted all to have the right to vote, both male and female, should they wish to do so.*
    history was revised in the 1970s to obscure these, leaving only the 'history' of the Sufragettes, a movement demanding the vote *for women only* , they did not want 'low class men' to be given the vote.
    it is untrue that society didn't value or do anything for women.
    women forget that men have allways sought to support 'their' women.
    insult a man's mother, sister, wife, and you would be asking for a fight.
    otherwise, good video Karolina.

    Few women could wear dresses below the ankle because few streets were paved. Most were sinking, stinking mud troughs.

    In Japan they (ladies) think Western girls are loose for showing cleavage, but they think nothing about themselves wearing miniskirts in winter.

    I think breast were sexualized in the past but not to the same extent as now since the portraits of the 17th and 18th century upperclass women that you showed did have décolletage which they decorated and presented in an attractive way for men to admire. I don't know but I think men regarded the sight of a woman's cleavage or even the sight of nude breast in the same way as men appreciate a woman in hot pants or miniskirt in the late 1960s and early 70s or in nylon or silk stockings in the 1940s that have a good set of legs. He could get a sexual charge out of it but bare/exposed legs aren't regarded as "dirty" or private parts like breast are considered now in the USA. Other parts of the world including Europe don't have that puritanical attitude which of course is another factor. We in America are feneralky more uptight about the human body in part due to our religious history.
    Anyway, to get back on point another reason breast weren't as much as an obsession with society is because we hid them more regarding them as private parts in the way we do not with women's legs. And I think a big reason for this is that open breast feeding of a baby in public isn't as respectable or common as it was in earlier times. Youbg boys saw naked breast all the time especially when watching their younger siblings being nursed by their mothers. So what was the big deal about breast? They saw them all the time. The change came as breast became more hidden and regarded more as a private part and so having the ironic reaction of them becoming more sexuallized the more they were hidden just like long skirts and shows hiding ankles in days of yore.😆

    I just wanted to comment on something that is often ignored. You touched on it as a "maybe", but from what I know it was basically fact.
    Women ran the household. Literally. The men had to work and support the family - even Lords had job in politics or managing their vast estates - so women manged the house. For wealthy women this could mean instructing the servants, managing nannies or tutors for their children, probably approving menus for parties, and being a proper hostess. For poor women it could mean managing the laundry, shopping, and care of the children. The men were out working all day, so it was the woman of the house who made the decisions on most things - such as what to buy for Sunday dinner. The men simply would not have had time to see to their work and manage the household.
    This system of the man working and woman ruling the house was the norm until very recently. Television and film from the 50's and 60's make it clear that, even though the man earned the money - the women controlled the budget. Even Lucy and Ethel were the ones that paid the bills, not Ricky and Fred. It was a division of labor that some might view as servitude, but it looks like (in some ways) the women held more power in the home than their husband.

    The ankles are exposed, but they are also either covered with high rise boots or stockings. Is it showing bare ankles that was the unforgivable sin?
