No, I'm not a bully but she chose her appearance and was mistaken for a young man. There is something called feminine. Perhaps you've heard of feminism? Bottom line is that you and others are far more bothered by that simple comment than I believe she is. And for the most part there is a difference among genders whether you like it or not.


She WAS NOT mistaken for a young man. The Fox anchor knew she was female, and she insulted Maddow by calling her a man. It was a premeditated insult through and through. This is not about being politically correct, this is about being civil and mature. The Fox anchor was suspended for making their show looks childish and immature, which is exactly how a lot of ATS members on this topic look right about now.

I couldn't care less for Rachel Maddow. I think your interpretation of "feminine" is just that - yours. And as to your last sentence, I happen to like the difference quite a bit, and there is a difference, not "for the most part".
If you wore hair gel twenty years ago you would have been "gay" btw.

My opinion is that this was childish and highly unprofessional behavior on the part of the Fox employee. She deserved the ridicule tossed her way and hopefully she learned a lesson.

The Fox anchor was not a man picking on a woman. It was a woman.

Her defenders were not being civil and mature, but quite frankly, being bully's!

Yes I know, I edited my reply. I made a simple mistake when editing my sentences mid way through writing.

Who cares what her defenders were doing, at that point it was self defense.

As well as yours no? I remember something called mousse 20 years ago and if that makes me gay then so be it. Also, you want to know what bullying is? Probably something like a woman getting caught red handed in a lie, and when questioned about it, others cry sexism and racism.

The point is, it was a premeditated insult. It was not an honest mistake like some here are trying to imply.

If it was a mistake then this probably wouldn't have been an issue, but it wasn't a mistake, it was deliberate.

The Fox anchor deserved her suspension.

I honestly question that sanity of anyone trying to defend the Fox anchor.

Ah, ok. Why would you infer my sex? Just curious. Like I said, I like the differences between men and women. I like all kinds of women, short hair is not a turn off for me.

Fox should employ more hot blondes.
edit:
oh, wow this one isn't all that hot, could use some work, but then again she is on an affiliate, not FNC.


A bit orange.

Laurie Dhue is hawt.

Wondering why this thread even exists but anyhow....

Maybe Tricia Macke has an attraction for all angry young types, and her comment was just a reflection of her own latent lesbianism revealed by her Freudian slip. Seems like a great way for a femme chick, who's into a certain dynamic to get someone's attention.... although it comes across as school yard stuff.... that's just part of that particular dynamic.

Where will you draw the line? People in the spotlight are made fun of all time. Look at all the presidents, they are called and made out to be all kind of things. This is not a case of some shy little girl being bullied. Google Mike Savage and see what comes up.

And many older women just plain look better with short hair. I understand.

If you want invoke Freud and his defense mechanism then maybe you should take a look into penis envy. Let us know what you come up with.

whoa,I thought that was Justin Beiber for a sec.


actually she is DOCTOR maddow...she recieved her doctorate degree at oxford university, after being accepted as a rhodes scholar.
but i guess the wisdom, and critical thinking skills of high school graduate glen beck, and college dropouts rush limbaugh and sean hannity are far superior.
edit on 15-11-2012 by jimmyx because: addition


Wow, oh jeez, Maddow is a Doc? Where'd she graduate med school? Complete residency? What's that? Oh, one of those "Doctors".

See what I did there?

What did you do there? Attempt to denigrate a Rhodes scholar who got a doctorate aka "DR" from Oxford? You wish, eh?

I agree. More college today might actually lessen critical thinking skills. Thinking outside of their box usually results in a lower grade.

Interesting isn't it that all of the rich republicans send their kids to Ivy league schools. Must be the stupid in them.

I have to agree with you there. What? Do they think that one can only be somebody with some type of degree? I have one, and not that special. Id wager that even West Point has went the way of the lefty.
