Gender bias

2 comments:

  1. that was really cool. thank you for posting that. sexism/gender bias is a fact in everyday modern america. I've seen it at work, in the media, in my personal life, etc., and on a regular basis.

    what are we going to do about it? Not waste our time arguing with the people who can't understand. We just have to do our thing and don't look back.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to create a blog post on the video "Mad as Hell/Bitch".

    The video was created by two grassroots supporters who met online, IndyRobin and GeekLove08. It took 4 weeks to create the video as we were collaborating via e-mail and we had a lot of material to work with. We believe that the message of mysoginism, as well as the character assassination of Hillary Clinton, by the media was an important one.

    We are "mad as hell" that television has become what Edward R. Murrow had warned about in 1958 when he said "This instrument can teach, it can illuminate; yes, and it can even inspire. But it can do so only to the extent that humans are determined to use it to those ends. Otherwise it is merely wires and lights in a box."

    Thanks to people like you, the video has gone "viral" spreading through the internet, and perhaps inspiring people to speak out against the media.

    If you and/or your readers have the opportunity, we would appreciate it very much if you could go to the original video post on YouTube and RATE the video, post a COMMENT on the video, and FAVORITE the video. These actions will help the video earn YouTube "honors" which may help further promote the video online. (You can get to the YouTube site for the video by double clicking the video on your blog.)

    Thanks again for your post.
