Between Seth MacFarlane and the Onion, Oscars night was a festival of misogyny
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/feb/26/seth-macfarlane-onion-oscars-misogyny

None of these men and women could possibly have a point. The women are all think skinned, humorless whiners, filled with 'poutrage' who can't let go. The men are clearly under the thumbs of harridans; feminazis. They're all pathetic and they don't get that MacFarlane was being subversive and post-ironic. Or something.

And no, I won't let it go. Much of the reaction here at DU has been an approximation of the above paragraph. That reflects a sexism problem here on DU- much as that will be vehemently denied.
