Not surprising: Someone on Fox News said something sexist and degrading to women in the workplace.
Surprising: It was a troll, not anyone actually employed by Fox News.
Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes was a guest on Hannity, and I pray to Chris Hemsworth’s abs that he was just trolling the entire time they spoke about the gender wage gap.
“The big picture here is, women do earn less in America because they choose to,” McInnes told panelist Tamara Holder. “They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work, working on a proposal, so they end up earning less … They’re less ambitious, and I think this is sort of God’s way, this is nature’s way of saying women should be at home with the kids — they’re happier there.”
Holder countered McInnes with righteous (and rightful) indignation, which he refuted with, “If you were a real feminist, you would support housewives and see them as the heroes and women who work wasting their time.” McInnes also noted that women don’t “go the extra mile” for work, then told Holder, “You’re making a mistake! You would be much happier at home with a husband and children … Look, you’re miserable. You would be so much happier with kids around you tonight. … Feminism has made women miserable. Women were much happier when housewives were glorified.”
Please be trolling. Please, please, please be trolling. (He’s probably trolling.)
