Gavin McInnes, a co-founder of VICE media company who left there in 2008, vehemently made his case for the title of “Most Sexist Man On the Planet” during a segment on Thursday’s edition of Fox News’ “Hannity.”
His comments — which included diatribes about women lying to themselves about wanting work, being happier in the kitchen and choosing not to make as much money as men — left fellow panelist Tamara Holder in a visible state of shock:
“The big picture here is, women do earn less in America because they choose to,” McInnes said. “They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work, working on a proposal so they end up earning less.”
And it just got worse form there.
“They’re less ambitious, and I think this is sort of God’s way, this is nature’s way of saying women should be at home with the kids — they’re happier there,” he continued.
“Having a choice doesn’t mean that you are less ambitious. And your comments are absolutely deplorable,” Holder shot back.
“If you were a real feminist, you would support housewives and see them as the heroes and women who work wasting their time,” McInnes argued.
He then told Holder that she looked miserable and questioned if she was celibate because she was single.
Holder appealed to host Sean Hannity — who at this point was only laughing — noting that he has a daughter and that she should have a choice to do what she wants.
“Oh boy,” was the only response Hannity could muster.
To be fair, McInnes did warn viewers:
About to appear on @seanhannity saying sexist things like, "housewives are heroes"
