DUmb Television Alert

The good news about the American populace is that, lately, they have done a pretty good job of effectively avoiding television shows based on really dumb and outmoded gender stereotypes* (remember NBC's "Meet Mr. Mom"? I didn't think so).

So I fervently hope that Fox's entry into the dumb-and-outmoded-gender-stereotype show, When Women Rule the World, is an unambiguous failure. It is offensive on so many different levels that I can't even hope to delve into them all.

(Thanks for Feministing for the heads-up.)

(I am back in the saddle. More posting to come. Lots to talk about.)

* More subtle gender stereotypes are still in ample supply, unfortunately.
