“What About Men?” Ask Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen in New Portlandia Teaser
In a new teaser for the seventh season of Portlandia, Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen’s characters identify the real problem with contemporary politics and social justice: None of it is about men. Where are the male presidents? The male movie stars? Why wasn’t the original draft of the U.S. Constitution written to disenfranchise anyone who wasn’t a white male property owner? It’s so unfair.
The clip opens with Brownstein and Armisen’s characters bicycling past the show’s feminist bookstore (whose real-life analogue, In Other Words, recently disavowed its role on Portlandia) as they confide that Reddit is their safe space and that the internet is truly A Room of One’s Own. Portlandia returns to IFC on January 5, 2017. Watch “What About Men?” below.
