Move over Samantha Brett, there’s another female blogger peddling sexist stereotypes in the mainstream media.
Ask Bossy, aka Kate de Brito, is an online agony aunt for News Digital. Today’s question from “a reader” is a guy asking why his girlfriend is upset he won’t marry her when he was upfront at the beginning that he didn’t want to get married again.
Anyway, the first line in de Brito’s response is:
She’s upset because she’s a woman. Women love commitment. And security. And a lot of them love marriage. In general, chicks like to know they’re onto a sure thing.
They are particularly onto a sure thing if they can present women as one trick ponies who only want marriage and babies. That way we don’t have to worry about that silly thing called equal pay. And sexism. And stopping violence against women.
