“Fox & Friends” Addressed Women In The Workplace & It Actually Wasn’t Terrible

Yes, I Actually Watched Some Fox News

As I read the chyron “Girls Gone ‘Mild’: Book Advises Women Not To  Raise Their Voices,” I was all ready to watch this Fox News segment advising women on how to carry themselves professionally in the workplace and then kill it with fire.

But as Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the author of Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit And Success, addressed “Fox & Friends” this morning about ways women can up their gravitas in the workplace, I found myself thinking, Hey, this is not such bad advice. Keep reading »

Gretchen Carlson Jokingly Walks Off “Fox & Friends” After Sexist Comment

  • “Fox & Friends” co-host Gretchen Carlson walked off the set after her co-hosts made sexist comments regarding the U.S. Navy Band now including women. When Brian Kilmeade said, “Women are everywere. We’re letting them play golf and tennis now. It’s out of control,” Gretchen stormed off-camera — albeit with a smile on her face. Good start, Gretchen. But instead of doing this as a joke, we need to get you peacing out for real. [Think Progress]

fox news gender neutral housing
Watch Video

I can’t even deal with the stupidity in this clip of the “Fox & Friends” hosts discussing Grinnell College’s new “gender neutral housing.” The living space will be for students who choose to live with others regardless of gender, including transgender/gay/lesbian/no gender, and it was spearheaded by the transgender students on campus. This is pretty cool, right? But while discussing Grinnell’s new housing, host Gretchen Carlson decided to pull out her “facts and figures,” as she put it, saying:

“In the fall it went up 18 percent. Eighteen percent of transgender students going to this college [sic]. Does that sound unusual to you? Eighteen percent? I didn’t know it was new trend.”

First of all, you’re speaking in fragments, not sentences, Gretch. Second of all, what are you talking about — what is “it”? What went up 18 percent? The number of transgender students? The number of LGBT students? The number of students interested in gender neutral housing? And did she seriously just suggest whatever the “it” is that she’s referring to is a “new trend”? As if young adults living their normally-closeted lives open and honestly is trendy?

Oh, yes. And it gets worse. Keep reading »

Pap Smears At Walgreens?!

Pap Smears at Walgreens

Did you know you could get your annual Pap smear at Walgreens? Yes! The stirrups are right over in aisle two next to the Pond’s skin cream and the Bonne Bell lip gloss. And breast exams? Right near the AAA batteries, please.

At least that’s what you might think if you watch “Fox & Friends” and believe every word they say. They were trying to justify the Republicans’ attempts to defund family planning money from Planned Parenthood because, duh, all women’s reproductive health needs can be met at the local Walgreens.

Stephen Colbert did a hilarious bit about this the other night on “The Colbert Report,” which you simply must watch. (Language NSFW, use headphones.) But now a group of feminist activists are planning actions to highlight this ignorance. Yup, you guessed it — they’re asking people to go to Walgreens and ask for a Pap smear. Keep reading »
