Objectifying women is only wrong when men do it. Throwing advertisements on the side of the MeToo victim train is completely fine if you’re a corporation cutting a check and not an individual member of the evil penis wielding patriarchy. MeToo has everyone’s attention at the moment and where there are focused eyes there is money to be made. PBS’s version of MeToo is more focused on monetary gains than actually empowering women who blew the whistle after they realized they were down on the scoreboard. Late calls in the cash grab game are allowed now because women are changing the rules. The show PBS wants the world to see is a five-part series that VICE could cover on YouTube in 45 minutes tops. But VICE has a habit of employing straight white males. If a journalist like Thomas Morton covered MeToo it would be considered a conflict of interest to every woman watching.
PBS announced on Tuesday that it will air a five-part series about the #MeToo moment. The series, #MeToo, Now What?, is scheduled to debut on February 2.
Between E!’s MeToo show and now PBS joining the party I wonder when the MeToo merch will get green-lit for screen printing. Women wearing the shirts will make it easier overall to identify who’s not DTF with NSA. There’s no way any chick with a MeToo halter top on is letting you get near her milk makers without a six month wait-time just to consensually see some slight under-boob. And that’s if you’re lucky. On the bright side, it saves men time and money. Dodging a date night with a feminazi is always a win. Until then grab the popcorn and prepare for more televised attacks.
