Top Gear or Top Geraniums?

Top Gear or Top Geraniums?

What is happening with trying to feminize everything now-a-days? Dr Louise Livesey is a complete moron if she believes that by trying to change such a brilliant show to become more feminine she will win any respect from the everyday laymen or from her peers. What is she thinking?

Basically the Equality Bill was passed in the UK which encourages employers to take action to widen diversity in the public sector.

Top Gear, as do a number of other programs,  falls under this Bill as it is owned by the BBC – a publicly owned entity.

So it appears that Drrr Louise Livesey, a tutor in sociology and women’s studies at Ruskin College in Oxford, thought that this would be a good opportunity to jump on the ‘sexist bandwagon’ and said of the show that it was ”entrenched with institutional sexism”.

Ahem.. I am sure we would all agree that most of the programs on TV are focused towards the fairer of the sexes, and if you feel different then I would like to propose a challenge by asking you to get today’s, or any days, television program and have a look.

It was claimed that, not only are the 3 hosts all male, the show had a ‘boys club’ production team and more male guests than female.

Andy Wilwan, Top Gear’s executive producer claimed that it was ”utter drivel that the show excluded women, and asked if it was geared so harshly towards men then why is the audience almost half women?”

He continues by saying, “Secondly, if we are to have a female presenter just to represent the sexes, then by that logic Loose Women needs a bloke in the line-up pretty sharpish.”

“I actually believe these sorts of mandates are patronising to women viewers, because they assume that women can’t enjoy a show’s presenters on merit, but can only appreciate a program if spoken to by one of their own sex.”

If Top Gear is change then I know for sure that it will lose a majority of the viewers. Not just the male viewers but the female as people love the show as it is.

    They want equality, then they go too far and want everything on their terms. So it ends up being sexist against men. I agree there are so many women’s programs, but when they see shows that created for men they shout ‘sexist’ and demand that it gets changed. Sometimes I wish I was gay and have nothing to do with them.

    I love it is so why change it and I’m a girl. I really hate people like Dr Louise Livesey and she does not speak for the rest of us. I would seriously slap her if I met her.

    The main problem is that it’s now politically correct to believe women over men.
