“We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby…?”October 17th, 2013 | Posted by in Uncategorized
This morning I can across something shocking on Twitter. I was scrolling messages and suddenly I see a message about the “Ten Twin Cities ladies you’ve probably dated.” It was posted by City Pages, a very respectable magazine in the area.
The article was in response to a New York Times article about the dating scene in Minneapolis.
I clicked on the link, which is what they wanted, and this elaborated article opened with detailed illustrations of different types of Twin Cities’ women.
I was flabbergasted! I thought the days of objectifying women were over or at least we try to act as if they are over.
The article stereotypes women as “Social Girl,” “The Lady Bro,” “The Young Professional,” “The College Clinger,” and it continues on.
I was so surprised by the blatantly sexism. I would have been fine with the article if there was an article about the ten men you’ve probably dated in the Twin Cities as a partner to this article, but no.
Come on City Pages … you can do better!
