Are you a sophisticated woman or a high maintenance woman? Every few years, society creates a new way to shame women and a trend that has now become part of our vernacular is to call women “high maintenance.” If this is ever something you have heard tossed at you, stick around because today, I’m going to help you figure out which you are and then, as an added bonus, I'm going to set you free in this re-release of my podcast.

In 1989, Hollywood released “When Harry Met Sally.” This was a romantic comedy for the purposes of the big screen, but for many of the women sitting in the audience, it was a painful descent into the funny-not-funny expectations of men and women. Hollywood called it an epic romantic comedy. Women in my social group called it targeting and depressing.

What we didn’t realize, however, was that we had just watched the dawn of the latest gaslighting for women when Harry said: "There are two kinds of women: high maintenance and low maintenance." Harry mimicked Sally ordering her salad with the dressing on the side using that as his justification for calling her high maintenance. Sally’s response was, “Well, I just want it the way I want it.” And that was the beginning of a whole new era of teaching uppity women how to stay in line.

I read all your comments and respond to everything. My favourite things to reply to are witty comments and slightly sarcastic funny pieces of feedback. I mean, like I said, I'll reply to everything, but I'm just saying I like things that make me laugh.
