Bryan Callen cares about his people. Oh, sure. Heaven may be high and the Emperor may be far away. But this Emperor is always listening. And so, when Emperor Callen heard that the people of the #Callenphate felt we didn’t have enough diversity at court, he decided to hold audience and to hear the concerns of his people. And so, with our continued commitment to open all the cans of worms and talk about all the elephants in the room, we had the first of many conversations about sexism. The fact that Bryan actually REQUESTED a conversation and then SHOWED UP to the conversation shows how seriously he takes the issue. He loves his people and wants them to be happy.
And so, Cate Fogarty, Katie O’Brien and Claire Gerety-Mott showed up to the Forbidden City that is Bryan’s house and had the first of many conversations to try and unravel our feeeeeeeeelings about sexism and to figure out what we can do to improve things. Part of it is simply having honest conversations about what we know and don’t know and giving people a voice who might otherwise not have a voice. That’s what the internet is for. Everyone gets to say their piece. We’re excited to hear yours.
Rest assured, MMA will keep evolving until humanity has talked out ALL its problems.
Oh, and I get it. Everyone hates my plough story.
Love to all humanity – Toto
