“The Choice”

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with male contestants trying to win over the women, it still portrays each gender as conforming to horrifically narrow, outdated gender roles and is blatantly sexist.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.

    I completely agree with your criticism of the show! And frankly, I think the show should be cancelled for condoning sexism. Unfortunately,you seem to be the only vocal critic of the show so far. Thanks for the insightful blog post!
