I just saw an advertisement for this show while watching TV, and couldn’t believe what I saw! Women were strutting across the stage in short, low-cut dresses trying to impress the male participants, and the men were portrayed as drooling slaves to their sexual desires. The same goes for a similar show on FOX, “Take Me Out.” While this show reverses the roles, with male contestants trying to win over the women, it still portrays each gender as conforming to horrifically narrow, outdated gender roles and is blatantly sexist. These shows serve as further proof that sexism is still alive and rampant in society today.
