4. Huffpo

Has been bugging me for a while. It's too bad, really it didn't have to go that route, or a least not that far.

I rarely read it anymore. I get more out of Buzzfeed, and while it can be extremely (and frequently) sexist, has few pretenses to seriousness. Plus it's actively gay friendly and does post the random feminist article and many gender neutral topics.

5. I think it has got worse since it was sold to AOL....

And it was bad enough before.

6. Wouldn't it be something if all progressives decided to take a stand against sexist crap like this?

If even a majority of progressives treated sexism and misogyny with no more tolerance or understanding than they do racism or homophobia?

That'll be the day.
