Megyn Kelly, you’re all right.
Say what you will about Fox News (which hopefully is very little, because my god, talk about bottling up the worst conservative arguments into one place and giving them a megaphone), one thing is true: their own Megyn Kelly, right-leaning host of “The Kelly File,” is kind of a bad ass. Despite being a conservative talking head, she’s been making waves for regularly straying from the Fox party line, particularly when it comes to feminism and women’s rights. The New York Times already dubbed the Kelly renaissance a “Megyn moment,” and she’s gaining fans across both political parties. One person who may be less of a fan now? Conservative blowhard, Mike Huckabee. Keep reading »
I avoid Fox News entirely for exactly this reason. Every time I watch a clip from Fox News — excepting Bill O’Reilly’s sympathetic monologue about the injustice of Eric Garner’s murder — I just end up with high blood pressure. I don’t like to hate-watch! And yet, I keep hate-watching.
Anyway, in this week’s edition of Eric Bolling Says Something Stupid, the hosts of “The Five” were talking about the study recently released in the British Medical Journal that says that men are absolutely more prone to taking idiotic risks than women. Here’s how Eric Bolling interpreted this: Keep reading »
In promoting his new book (which I am too irritated to even link to) on Fox News’ “Trending With Tantaros,” KISS frontman Gene Simmons proclaimed that we ladies need to stop leeching off our men because so many dudes walk out anyway, and that we should just actively plan for abandonment instead. Gene, what’s the deal here? I used to think we were long lost BFFs. I watched “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” religiously back in the day, and one of my favorite things about it was how normal (and loving!) the Simmons family seemed. Clearly, I was wrong. On his Fox segment, Simmons launched into a discussion of his book’s chapter on female entrepreneurs as host Andrea Tantaros eagerly nodded her head and gushed in agreement with his sexist ideas. Simmons seems to have decided that having spent his life being enabled and cared for by women qualifies him to know enough about the female experience to dictate what is best for all of us. His advice to lady entrepreneurs: Keep reading »
Kimberly Guilfoyle and her co-hosts on “The Five” decided on Tuesday’s edition of the show that young women are just too out of it to be functional members of society. They argued that most people become conservatives as they get older, and that young women start as liberals until they marry and gain enough “life experience” to do a political 180 (the party starts at around the 1:45 mark in the video). They claimed, with completely straight faces, that single women tend to lean to the left because they believe they “need the government to take care of them.” So, I guess they think that women aren’t capable of functioning without a husband to pay for their shit or facilitate their lives. Then if there’s no man to assist them, we’re supposed to presume that these “helpless” women want their government to take care of them in a dude’s place? I mean, considering the U.S. government’s track record as of late (and really, since the beginning of history) no sane person, especially a sane woman, would ever actively plan on Congress or the Prez coming to save them. But alas, this was only the beginning of Guilfoyle’s ramble. Keep reading »
