really liked it

Gender reversal. You don't realize how 'oppressive' women's lifestyle is until you imagine a situation in which men and women's roles are reversed. Women (wim) rule society and men (menwim) stay home to take care of the household. It's also interesting to pay attention to the language: 'wim' dominate the language more so than 'menwim' do, just as 'men' appears more frequently in language than does 'women.'
