This is an epic-stupid take on women. You poor incel. Can you show us on the doll where the woman hurt you? Poor thing.

The show is not terrible however...

SPOILER ALERT....

The "last man" finds his mom (the president) and he turns out to be a GIANT TWAT WAFFLE that will likely ruin the show for me... Also, the depiction of the Republican women is a terrible caricature. They could have capitalized on the response to 9/11 and modeled everyone's behavior to be a little more patriotic/helpful vs. OHMERGAHD let's divide ourselves into Blue and Red teams. Politics has officially ruined everything.

  Well....there are A LOT of jobs women have zero training or experience doing, and little to no interest in doing.  Lots of those jobs are dirty, dangerous, and take some level of experience to get done in any efficient way.  The good news is with half the population gone there will be less demand for resources, but even keeping power plants running is not something that happens by magic.

Kind of like during WWII?

Women step up. There are more woman in these imaginary "men-centric" jobs than you likely know. Sure, after WWII in our puritanical Judeo-Christian patriarchy where misogynists like yourself made all the rules - this may have been truer. But in 2021? I'm not buying it. Is the gender ratio in certain fields skewed one way or another? Sure. But that could be shored up with training programs run by the women already in those fields.

The only thing women need to maintain society would be an significant supply of sperm. With IVF, they could take one sample and impregnate hundreds (with a little genetic hacking of course). In this scenario they need to find a vaccine for the Y Killer Virus first, then repopulate and let the next generation of people carry forward.

If the past is any indication, these women would work together to save the species (and the planet). Things wouldn't be irrevocably ruined because men exited the scene for a generation. If something this catastrophic happens I'm confident people would act differently than what is depicted in this show.

Learn to Code, amirite? Converting half the workforce will take years, probably a generation. I had no doubt that many women will try to step up, but WW2 isn't the shining example you think it is. Repurposing production lines and adding some more laborers can happen quickly, but losing much of your upper management and highly skilled workers in very specialized industries (like nuclear power) is something else entirely. Major collapse is nearly inevitable in that situation. Not to mention morale. In WW2, the people were rah-rah patriotic and fired up. In Y, the new president is hiding in a bunker, and and made one of the most dispiriting speeches I've seen on television. (Seriously, that speech was terrible.)

  Opening up with name calling is pretty shit behavior,  I suppose I may have expected more.

  You are calling me a misogynist because I am just telling you the truth?   I didnt say they couldnt eventually fix the gap, but you are out of your mind if you dont think there is going to be degradation to infrastructure big time in the short (5-10 years) term.   In WW2 there were still A LOT of men still in the workforce, and it is great that housewives signed on to make bombs in a factory line, but that is not the same as operating a nuclear power plant or fixing lines and lines of code, or being out in the sun all day farming or digging a ditch.

  I also feel I have overestimated your ability to discuss something with a critical thought process if your argument involves calling people names.  Or maybe I just overestimated your basic manners?
