On a week where a man is criticized for what he chose to wear in a professional setting, I think a bit of the movie “Ratatouille”…
Let us assume that it is terrible to criticize him for wardrobe, when his job is not being a model but landing a robot on a comet. Then, let us pull the camera back. Is he being treated unfairly? Ok… then who else is?
(TL:DW: Australian news anchors–Man wears same suit for a year, no one notices. Woman gets all sorts of emails criticizing her outfits. CNN finds many other examples of female anchors getting such criticism.)
Apples and oranges, perhaps? When you pull the camera back to get the big picture, it’s all massive groves of trees with little round fruits. And some get criticized all the time, and some get criticized once in a while. If you want equality, you need to acknowledge the big picture, and recognize that what some complain about in one close-up is what is overwhelmingly ignored in another.
