Catch XX*

   „Ideas? Who cares?! – I do!“
         Gordana Čomić

* XX = chromosomes
XX* revolution

Changing the role of
women as (maybe) the
only clear idea of our
time
* XX = chromosomes, again 
Where are the winds of change?
Corporative democracy?
• No strong leaders („they are all the same“)
• No strong rules („informal decision making“)
• Sharing facts without context (pointless)
• No clear ideas („fears and concerns, where is
  the hope, vision, solutions?“)
• No real global movements in post
  globalization times, EXCEPT: changing the role
  of women, everywhere
Brief story about my grandma & me
• We are XX species who shared XX century, and
  I am the first XX generation with – women
  rights
• She couldn`t, I can: school, vote, property,
  travel alone, marry or not, give birth or not,
  freedom of choice and freedom of voice
• Started in Europe and USA, spred over the
  world through 100 years, far from „game
  over“
What else has changed?
• Technology (of war & peace, some people call it
  „progress“)
• Rules of slavery and colonization (but also terrorism as
  the „garbage of globalizaton, inequality)
• Rules of communication (internet, „access matters“)
• Market rules, money rules (but who are the rulers, who
  are „rule makers“ and who are „rule takers“ ?)
• Socialism and comunism that we used to know as an
  idea has gone (more or less)
• Social model for XY and XX species due to „catch XX“
  everlasting change
Funny theory of 30% of everything
• In every society, in every organization, there
  are 30% of people willing to ACCEPT change
• From those 30% ready to accept, there are
  30% willing to WORK for changes,
  revolutionary or evolutionary
• From those 30% ready to work, there are 10%
  ready to LEAD
Change in funny numbers
• If there are 8 000 000 people, 2 400 000 are
  ready to ACCEPT changes, 720 000 are ready to
  WORK and 72 000 to LEAD
• Among those ready to lead, there must be a will
  for changing themselves and than we again have
  30% those who are ready to ACCEPT it and that is
  21 600, 30% of those ready to WORK and that is
  6480, and 10% ready to LEAD is 648
• So, ideas and leadership depends on those 648
  people, and 216 should be XX, 432 are XY
Stereotypes as „Zeitgeist“
• Women don’t like, don’t know, don’t need, don’t “feel”
  comfortable, don’t have any use of – The Politics
• Women don’t want other women in politics
• Women know that politics will make them “less”
  feminine
• Women are not “made” for politics, not capable to
  cope with it
• Women can hardly manage politics and family business
• There is, always, at least one bad example for a woman
  in politics (for a man, there are so many, but unspoken)
Well, I have a breaking news
                for all of you:
XX & XY social behavior
• NO ONE CAN ban, erase or forbid stereotypes
  that people do have, through which people think,
  which people adopt in the culture they are raised
• BUT, EVERYONE CAN ban & forbid behavior based
  on prejudice, by the law, criminal or law of any
  kind
• BUT, EVERYONE CAN educate, campaign, teach,
  show, learn how to (as slowly as it goes) decrease
  the power of “stereotype thinking”
Origin of stereotype
• Easy and inevitable to handle, think and use
• Product of social model
• Consequence of collective memory
• Common way among humans to “negatively
  define someone else, so that we can look better”
• “Verum factum” – truth is what we made the
  truth to be (G.Vico)
• Perception is believing, so – it is the truth, as
  well, no matter how far from facts
Peel & scrape
• Social models and stereotypes are like onion –
  can make you cry, but also enables you to peel
  and scrape each uncomfortable layer (for XX and
  XY models, equally), and it is neverending process

 AND THAT IS WHAT WE WERE BEING DOING ALL
     THE TIME, THAT IS THE „CATCH XX“ OF
IRREVERSIBLE PROCESS OF CHANGE, THAT IS IDEA
THAT IS STILL FRESH AND STRONG LIKE IT USED TO
                      BE
XX smiley 
XY smiley 
