Sexism is Still Alive & Well

July 27, 2011

Fashion jerk Tim Gunn was on the George Lopez show and they had a gay old time bashing Secretary of State Clinton. I won’t even bother excerpting the article but here’s the link.

I wonder if Tim Gunn finds mocking glbt folks funny? Is homophobia funny? No, it’s not. It’s not about being a “humorless feminist” it’s about respect. Lopez should be able to be funny without being sexist and he can’t, then, well, maybe he needs to get a new gig.

I am going to write a letter to the George Lopez show called ‘Lopez Tonight’ and let them know that sexism isn’t funny and I hope their advertisers take note because nothing gets television executives as upset as the thought of losing advertising dollars. If you are interested, I encourage you to do the same- and mention their advertisers!

Here is a link to the show’s website. Here is how you can contact TBS/the show.

    thank you for bringing this to light, stacy. lopez was no better than gunn, referring to hillary’s “cankles.”

    gunn says he wishes hillary could be a better model for american fashion. would he say that about a male secretary of state? of course not.

      Oh, I thought Gunn was the one that made that comment too. I’ll take that bit out of my post then.

    Wow. Just when the sting of the 2008 media sexism directed at Hillary had started to fade…

    I just left a scathing message on TBS’ viewers comments line. C’mon people, it takes 30 seconds!

    Two a-holes. Before Lopez decides to comment on anyone’s looks he should look at himself in the mirror. He’s one ugly man. As for the effete jerk that commented on her clothes, he can go and eff himself.

    Lady Gaga On Tim Gunn’s criticism of Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit couture:
    “He’s being a bully. I think Hillary Clinton has more important things to worry about than her hemline. I certainly don’t. I certainly only care about my hemline

    People should show other people respect. This is awful.
