A news story that started about women’s influence on upcoming elections took a large turn when Fox News reporter, Kimberly Guilfoyle, tactlessly denounced young women’s mental capabilities. From the very beginning of the segment, she acted in an unprofessional and irrational way.
For example, Guilfoyle let out a loud honking noise when one of her co-hosts made the comment that most married women are conservative while single women are democrats. Guilfoyle, 45 years old and twice divorced, certainly wanted it to be know she was single and certainly not liberal.
She showed her lack of refinement again as her other co-host said, “You don’t have to wait to become conservative,” and Guilfoyle interjected, “To get a brain.”
So listen up all members of the democratic or independent parties, you apparently have no brain according to Guilfoyle.
Making the out of place transition from women’s thoughts during election periods to why young women shouldn’t be allowed on juries, Guilfoyle stated, “It’s the same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea—they don’t get it,” she continued. “They’re like not in that same life experience of paying the bills, doing the mortage, kids, community, crime, education, health care….”
So to you young women who have practically raised your younger siblings, volunteered, reported crimes or injustices in your community, stayed up late nights so you could succeed in school, etc., apparently you just “don’t get it.”
“They’re like healthy and hot and running around without a care in the world,” Guilfoyle accused. All this being said about a generation who is dealing with chronic obesity and the very real fear of graduating college with loads of debt and no jobs because of a poor economy.
Maybe Guilfoyle is drawing on her experiences as a young woman, like back when she was a model for Macy’s and Victoria’s Secret lingerie.
Finally, she wrapped up her thoughts by saying the truly offensive statement, drawing the most attention to this particular segment, when she said, “Excuse them [young women] so they can go back on Tinder or Match.com.”
Apparently, after backlash, she said the statement was a joke. Watch the segment here, decide for yourself, and let us know if you think she’s really just joking around.
