I was in university and in some feminism class. Woman shows a video and it's a claymation about like God testing different body parts for durability. So there's a bunch of...I don't know...ears that go by and they're being put through a roller. And there were a bunch of lips getting punched by one of those novelty oversized punching gloves. And this was all kind of unpleasant but then I saw brains with glasses getting punched and I thought how horrible this is because the brain is aware of what's happening.
Then the body parts of assembled and there's a big reveal and soaring music and the video ends with "it's all to create this:" or something similar. And the big reveal is in real life (outside of the video but still in the dream) the woman giving the lecture and showing the video presents a paper model of a person in a mobility scooter.
This woman was a student giving a presentation. And in the back were three professors. One of them says, "I wasn't expecting that" which voiced my thought at the time. In the video, the person being assembled clearly is able-bodied and then there's this weird mobility scooter model.
Anyway, I'm then asked to help pass out some papers or something from a cart. The woman who gave the speech is pushing the cart and I'm supposed to pass out the papers. She pushes me with the cart, maybe I'm going too slow, and I ask her to stop. Then it happens again and I ask her to stop louder. Then it happens a third time and I start yelling about what bullshit this is. The professors ask me what's going on and I'm yelling "This woman is repeatedly pushing me and you do nothing about it." Then some guy in the class yells something about feminism being the reason. So the professor says it's nothing to do with feminism. And I say something like, "No, feminism isn't the reason of this, it's the cause." and I get a lot of "right on" type responses from the guys.
The response didn't make sense but in the dream it did and it was a really clever word play. But I also thought about how studenty this whole thing is. Talking about feminism and whatnot. And it made me uncomfortable and not want to be there. That took me out of the dream and I woke up.
