In the reality show "The Last Hero", men and women were divided. What happened from this?By Pictolic https://pictolic.com/article/in-the-reality-show-the-last-hero-men-and-women-were-divided-what-happened-from-this.html
All over the world, the teams of participants in the reality show "The Last Hero" include men and women. But a few years ago, in the Netherlands, they decided to conduct an experiment and filmed a localized version of the program with male and female teams. It was not without feminists who assured everyone that at last the world would see that a female society, freed from men, could flourish. How did the curious experiment end and was it possible to prove the superiority of the fair sex in extreme conditions?
Two groups, male and female, were landed on islands in the ocean with the same size and natural conditions with a minimum set of starting resources. Both small colonies began with the distribution of roles and building a hierarchy, but the men could not choose a leader and soon began to do important things.
Everyone has chosen a task according to their liking and strength. Some went hunting and fishing, others to collect fruit, and others began to build a home. Everyone turned out to be in business – even the laziest, having bought enough in the lagoon, began to make furniture for the common house.
A few days later, a small hearth of real civilization was formed on the men's island, where there was a place not only for basic human needs, but also for some comfort. Life flowed on as usual, and everyone did their job for the common good.
The women, having looked around on their island, also got to work. First of all, they came up with a dryer for clothes and towels, and when it was ready, they went to the beach to sunbathe and chat. It immediately became clear that ladies can create some benefits only after reaching a consensus among all members of the group. Since there were 12 participants, it was not possible to reach an agreement.
For several episodes of the show, a lot of upheavals occurred on the women's island. The islanders quarreled with each other, broke into several opposing groups, ate all the supplies, got wet several times during a tropical storm. In their free time from swimming, disputes and natural disasters, they fought with sand fleas. The women's colony looked very pathetic and caused only ridicule from the audience.
Everything was consistently good for the guys and even several conflicts that arose between the participants were resolved quickly and without complications. Seeing this, the organizers decided to change the conditions of the game and dilute the teams with the opposite sex. Three men went to the women's island, and three women were moved to the men's island.
The three lucky men who had the good fortune to go to the women by lot were terribly pleased and extremely excited. But when they arrived on the neighboring island, they quickly lost their pleasant illusions. It turned out that the ladies did not even have primitive housing, the rice given out as a reserve food product had long since run out, and there were constant skirmishes and quarrels in the camp.
The three guys were forced to use their existing experience and, working hard from morning to night, create excellent living conditions for the Amazons and get them food. At this time, life in the women's camp went on as usual – the islanders continued to swim, sunbathe and discuss their problems.
But the women who got to the men were in a real paradise. They were waiting for a roof over their heads, a specially equipped latrine, simple but comfortable furniture and an abundance of various food. Of course, this did not change anything in their lives and the guests continued to spend their days as senselessly and carelessly as before.
Of course, all this happened in front of millions of TV viewers and under the close attention of those very activists of the movement for women's rights. The organizers of the show were immediately accused by feminists that everything was set up specifically for the sole purpose of approving mossy stereotypes with a patriarchal bias.
They were not convinced even by the fact that in the United States, the CBS channel conducted the same show, separating men and women and received almost the same depressing results. Men also quickly organized themselves and began to improve their lives, and women began unsuccessfully building a hierarchy and destroying supplies issued "for a rainy day".
The only thing that hindered the development of men's society was the aggressive behavior of its individual members. But the majority of men have learned to cope with this problem quickly. In the women's community, squabbles and quarrels were a constant phenomenon and not just slowed down the work on the development of the colony, but completely replaced it. Thus, the dream of feminists to prove the possibility of creating a functional society without men did not come true.
