Sexism in the 21st Century

Last night I watched a live televised job interview, where a woman was expected to answer questions accurately, precisely, poised, articulate, with no mistakes, while still seeming engaging and likable, but not too silly. All while people are criticizing her lipstick and outfit, even though that has nothing to do with the job she’s applying for.

The other interviewee, a man, showed up high, drank heavily, repeatedly interrupted everyone, insulted women, didn’t answer questions, lost his train of thought, bragged about breaking the law and stealing money from the people interviewing him and also proved he doesn’t actually know much about the logistics of job he is applying for.

True Story.

And here’s the super crazy part… Americans still aren’t sure which one they are going to hire!
