Gray and Keys lose jobs for sexism, what about Loose Women?

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

So Sky Sports presenter, Andy Gray and Richard Keys, have lost their jobs for making off-air sexist comments.  Why?

They haven’t made any sexist comments on the air, only privately.  Someone has deliberately and vindictively leaked recordings of their private conversations to destroy them.  Why were the cameras recording private conversations and how did someone manage to accumulate a collection of recordings of off-air, private conversations and get them on the internet?

Will the presenters of lunchtime trash TV programme, Loose Women, come under similar scrutiny for their on-air sexism?  Every episode of Loose Women consists of a couple of interviews, a bit of gossip and the rest is made up of sexist comments and jokes about men.  Why is it acceptable for a gaggle of middle aged women to base an entire TV programme around slagging men off but it’s a sackable offence for a TV presenter to make sexist comments off the air to male colleagues who clearly took no offence at them?

I’ve said it before: straight, white English men are the most discriminated against section of society.

    If Murdoch-run organizations are going to sack people for expressing discriminatory views, will there be anyone left?

    Come to think of it Wonko, how comes you know so much about loose women?

    Isn’t it time all the women in the Labour party were sacked for their misandrist views?

    Yeah, I know Andy Gray is a sweaty. I was talking in more general terms. 🙂

    Ummmmm … Mrs Sane watches it so when I have a day off it’s on at lunchtime.

    if only loose women was the only openly man hating show on television…if only.

    over the last 40 years TV programming has concentrated on men because the advertisers felt that men had the greater spending power, equality has rightly helped narrow this gap.

    but much more importantly the advertisers have realised that women are MUCH easier to advertise to, FAR more likely to go buy the products they are told to.. So in the last 15ish years we’ve seen the rise of such programmes as Buffy, Charmed, Chuck, Gray’s anatomy, Sex and the City, Cougar town, Nikita, Castle, Bones. Thats the top-of-the-head list, there are many more that spend a solid hour saying all men are mentally substandard or morally dead and all women are saints who are brilliant at everything.
