FOX News can’t stop making sexist comments

Brenda Romero, Staff Writer

The oh-so-lovely FOX News did it again, not giving us the news, but making the news, and not in a good way, when one of their host gave her opinion on young women voting, they shouldn’t.

FOX News is already known for its Republican bias, but you would think that adding female pundits to discussion tables might support women’s issues instead of tearing them down.

Kimberly Guilfoyle, FOX News co- host on “The Five,” was a part of a panel on how young women should be involved in society.

The panelists talked about how married women vote Republican and single women vote Democrat.

“Young women on a jury are not a good idea. They don’t get it,” Guilfoyle said later in the panel discussion.
Then she elaborated on what she meant by “they don’t get it.”

Guilfoyle said young women are “not in the same life experience of paying bills, paying mortgage, kids, community, crime, education, and health care,” as married women are.

Don’t count all young women out. In this day and age it feels like more and more young women have their lives together at a younger age.

Not everyone has to worry about a mortgage, but many know the responsibility of paying rent and utilities.
Guilfoyle’s last few words were her most memorable.

In an attempt to defend what she said, she clarified that she didn’t say young women couldn’t be  jurors, but the court should “just excuse them so they can go back on Tinder or match.com.”

This statement dumbs down women by saying that all we do is worry about finding a perfect man or a hook up.

It also puts us back into a time, when women just waited until they met their knight in shining armor.

It is sad to see a fairly young woman who has a voice on national television put down other young women based on a stereotype that many women have fought hard to break.
