Brown Aunty Logic vs. Us
That's What They Said
In this week’s episode ‘Brown Aunty Logic vs. Us’, we dive into the many stereotypes and logic that we faced in our culture as South Asian women who came to study abroad and build a life. Even though our episode name refers brown aunties, it also extends those uncles and individuals in brown culture who hold such judgements in their minds. And many times, brown aunties pose such stereotypes because they themselves grew up in a patriarchal society with archaic notions that told them that to feel anything different from what the society thinks, is not right. To hear more about the brown aunty logic, check out our latest episode!
Intense episode about death. And how our opinions change and evolve from the rhetorical to the real deal. Very personal episode and yet if you ever have lose loved ones you will identify with this episode.
