Fox News Tells Women to Be Quiet

Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, undoubtedly the two dumbest men on television, have a message for women: Pipe down and know your place. They brought on the author of a book saying much the same thing on their morning show and casually told women to shut up.

Fox News host Steve Doocy introduced Sylvia Ann Hewlett’s book, Executive Presence, by advising that women should wear “well-cut jeans with a colorful top,” while an on-screen graphic told them “not to raise their voices.”

Co-host Anna Kooiman, however, argued that “women shouldn’t be so focused on what we look like, and what we’re wearing, but what our mind can do.”

“Also a little thing that you think is important is your presentation and your voice,” co-host Brian Kilmeade added. “Keep it low, don’t speak loud.”

“For women,” Doocy emphasized.

Hewlett explained that a lot of women from the South were taught to “fill the air with words… but oftentimes that undermines you, just rambling.”

“Don’t talk too much,” Doocy recommended.

If only Doocy would take that advice himself, perhaps he wouldn’t make such an ass of himself every day.

    If Doocy the dunce took that advice, he probably would not be long for the Fascist News Channel.

    Women make up the majority of the US population.

    They also make up a majority of the voters.

    Who Votes More: Women Or Men? – Upworthy
    www. upworthy. com/who-votes-more-women-or-men

    Nearly 66% of women voted in the 2008 election, compared with 61.5% of men. … But if you’re in one of these demographic minorities for voter turnout …

    These are just trivial insults from wannabe primitives. It doesn’t make me want to join the GOP or xianity though.

    This is news now?

    When haven’t they been doing that ‘zactly?

    Appalling, wrong but par for the course.

    As Cenk Uygur pointed out, most of Fox News viewers are from the 1950s. They’re just pandering to their audience.

    They’ve got a point. If all those mouthy broads would shut up for a minute, they’d see that the Democrat party is behind the real War on Women.

    If they’re referring to their Faux News female co-hosts, Sarah “Sixpack” Palin, Michele Bachmann, Orly Taitz, Ann Coulter, Cindy “Spaghetti” Jacobs, etc, then I support them completely.

    So jeans and a colorful top is how a woman can have “executive presence,” eh? The CEO of my (multi-billion dollar) employer is a woman, and I’ve yet to see her in jeans and a colorful top. I guess she just doesn’t know as much about being an executive as a group of mindless drones on Fox.

    Funny. That isn’t how you got your job at Fox, Anna.

    One that never existed, to boot.

    Not as far as I’m concerned, but then my wife has thoughts and opinions of her own as well. Of course I’ve got one of those partnerships we were told not to have a couple of days ago, so I guess I’m not really a “man.” *shrug*

    @8 – that’s my experience too. I’ve worked for numerous women, and none of them were so unprofessional as to show up to work in jeans. Yeah, there are jobs where that’s acceptable. I wish that were true of my job. But it isn’t, and what this really tells you is that these folks think that women should only be working the sorts of behind-the-counter or nonexecutive jobs in which jeans are currently acceptable.

    Jeans are totally acceptable in my job as a software engineer, and I’m sure that these folks don’t think that is an acceptable job for my poor illogical lady-brain. Now excuse me while I get back to writing some software that will go in a satellite.

    How do they remember to breathe?

    There are two possibilities:

    1) They’re busy talking so breathing is a side-effect.
    2) They’re anaerobes.
