I've decided to have a new and occasional column (the occasional will be determined by obvious factors) dedicated to the casual and not so casual (the Daily Mail, this means you) sexism rife in all aspects of the media. To write about it here is to make me slightly less outraged, and I can now enjoy sexist comments, because I can blog them. This is how I deal with all my problems, make them into a story!
Richard and Judy
On Michelle Gayle’s Eurovision entry:
Richard ‘who wrote that for you?’
Michelle (not at all perturbed, but proudly) ‘I wrote it myself.’
‘You’re a clever little chicken, aren’t you?’
Michelle: (grinning from ear to ear) ‘I try.’
Someone must have said something in his ear after that because he said to Andy Abrahams, ‘Did you write your own song too?’
He didn’t call him a clever little chicken though.
Deal or No Deal
Noel, after making a contestant apologise to the studio audience…
‘200 people in 3 minutes?
Even Sarah [one of the contestants] can’t manage that.’
I know Noel and Madeley are old and known bumbling buffoons, but still. Poor show!
