Sexism at the Oscars

The Academy Awards are done and over, done deal? No, the broadcast displayed more than its fair share of sexist discourse. The link leads to an article in which they display the 9 sexist things that happened at the Oscars. To me the problem is that to everyone just considers this to be comedy, therefore they allow it. The underlying messages are clear but no one seems to understand the repercussions of these actions, because they are just jokes! Sexism is mainstream and those of us who point it out must learn to get a sense of humor, that’s the only way people deal with this.

P.S. take a look at the comments, they’re great!
