anyway if anyone ever says that girls are dumb and traditionally female activities are stupid and all appliances made for ladies have to be incredibly simple for their dumb lady brains,

brain them over the head with a sewing machine

bc that complex gif is just about one part of the machine, and one type of stitch. there is more to it than that. there is way more. and to use a sewing machine, you have to know things like "how to adjust the bobbin tension", "how to adjust the tension above", "how to troubleshoot these two things being slightly off", "how to properly thread the machine through each little bit of this so it can work", "how to feed the cloth into the machine with the correct sewing foot", "how to use the foot pedal to make the machine work at the correct speed for you helping feed the cloth through the machine", "how to clean and oil all of this complicated machine as regular maintenance", so on, and so forth, and that's even before getting into how sewing itself requires a whole fucking lot of both math and intense mental spatial processing as you have to work out how to make this 3d object!

Post-apocalyptic scenario where people mostly work in manual labour (e.g. smiths, millers) but use today's work titles as names. No more John Smiths working as customer relations managers, it's John Customer Relations Managers working as smiths
