Fox News Host Blames High Divorce Rates on Women Not Taking Care of Men (Video)

dash-outnumberedRecently my colleague Manny Schewitz wrote an article mentioning that some Republicans are becoming increasingly frustrated with the conservative media, in particular Fox News, and how it’s continually pushing the party further and further to the right. That’s exactly what’s happening; it’s not about news, or even facts, it’s simply about telling conservatives what they want to hear.


Take for instance one of Fox News’ programs, Outnumbered. This show is basically just their attempt to seem “friendly” to women by having a show centered mostly around women often talking about politics or various issues pertaining to women. The problem is, it typically turns into a mockery of women’s rights. Last year during one of the segments on this show they actually defended the right for men to sexually harass women in public.

The whole show is just a sham.

Well, the true vile nature of this show rendered its ugly head once again as the co-hosts discussed an article in Glamour magazine which some people called sexist. The article gave “tips’ on how women can make men fall in love with them, with one “tip” being to bring him a snack or a drink after sex.

“After you engage in a little horizontal hula, make him a sandwich,” co-host Andrea Tantaros said. “That’s not called 1950s. That’s called kindness. And frankly, I think women should do a little more of that.”

Okay, I’ll agree with that. While I didn’t read the list in full detail, I skimmed it enough and I didn’t see anything really wrong about it – at least nothing I found “offensive.” I’ve seen many of these sorts of lists floating around the Internet all the time, only they’re usually telling men how they can make women love them. Typically these lists are pure garbage anyway. It’s just made up nonsense by some “journalist” looking for easy revenue through cheap clickbait.

However, fellow co-host Stacey Dash decided to display her ignorance by declaring her belief that divorce rates have risen because women aren’t properly taking care of their men.

“I think that’s why divorce rates are so high. Women don’t know how to take care of their men anymore,” Dash said.

Let me remind you that a host on a featured show on America’s most watched cable news channel said this – and won’t be disciplined in any way for it. In fact, that exact sort of rhetoric is highly encouraged on Fox News.


Could you imagine someone on any other major network but Fox blaming high divorce rates on women not catering to men? That’s about as blatantly sexist as you can get without being outright vulgar – and I’m not anything close to a person who sides with radical feminists. In fact, I’ve had many run-ins with radical feminists over what I believe are some glaring hypocrisies within their movement.

Either way, Dash’s comments do serve as another perfect example of Fox News personalities belittling and mocking women. That’s what Outnumbered really is – a show that’s clearly meant to seem like it’s about women, their point of view and women’s rights, but that’s all just a farce. Outnumbered’s real purpose is simply to make Republicans seen more women-friendly when, in fact, the show often mocks the push in this country to treat women with the equality they deserve.

    There’s nothing wrong with a little “classical conditioning”. It worked for Pavlov’s dog…. Who knows. It may help reach the climax simultaneously on the next “horizontal hula”..

  • worrierking

    What wasn’t mentioned is this this harpy who knows why women can’t keep men has been divorced, not once, not twice but three times.

    Listening to her rant about happy marriage is like listening to Ted Nugent talk about patriotism.

    • Nissim Levy

      You mean Ted Nugent talking about tolerance.

  • Cemetery Girl

    Guess she didn’t take care of her man. (She’s divorced.)
    I am a feminist, and I am irked by her comment. Spouses should take care of each other. What specific means of action to take care of each other varies by couple. Women should take care of their partners. Men should take care of their partners. Making your partner feel loved and appreciated can help most relationships.

    • Maslow’s world

      Exactly. Spouses should take care of each other. A high divorce rate isn’t about “not taking care of your man” but more about the fact that marriage can be difficult and you have to work at it. What happens out of the bedroom (everyday life) is just as important and will ultimately effect your sex life.
      Mutual respect. Just like every good relationship in your life.

      • Cemetery Girl

        And during the difficult points of marriage it is harder to demonstrate the care you feel. All of us tend to have a kind of tunnel vision while stressed, but it’s important to continue to show your partner respect. It seems like many people forget the day to day expressions of affection, things that show you care. Little things, making them a cup of coffee first thing in the morning when you know that have that routine. Randomly picking up their favorite candy bar while you’re at the store. There are things both sexes can do that aren’t huge but show that you know your partner and care about them. The little things can have a huge impact on both partners feeling appreciated and loved. It just requires people to remember to take a few moments to show they care.

    UM … the divorce rate is high because women don’t cater to their man? That statement makes absolutely no sense at all!
    Why?
    OK, follow me on this … Man marries woman. Woman does what women do … cook, clean, laundry, sex, raise the kids, and has a job to contribute financially – the usual lineup. The ‘macho’ man doesn’t lift a finger unless it’s to do a steak on the grill, or maybe mow the lawn).
    Now, the man decides he’s not being waited on and/or catered to anywhere near enough, so he divorces his woman.
    Man now lives on his own and has to do his own cooking, cleaning, laundry, and probably taking care of the kids a couple of days a week. He also has less money because he doesn’t have his wife’s income, plus he’s paying child support.
    Exactly what has been gained by the man when he’s divorced the woman?

      Sanity.

  • Allahu Akbar!

    A woman’s place is barefoot in the kitchen with a bun in the oven.If I need a beer when I am watching the ball game I expect my old lady to bring me one and right away not when she is done gabbing on the phone or baking a cake.

    • noah vail

      and this is why you are single and likely to remain so, idiot

  • GenerallyConfused

    Cause noted. So my ex, after cheating, lying and funneling every ounce of money we had to do what he wanted to do, left and married another woman 2 days after our divorce decree was signed because I didn’t take better care of him. Got it.

    …and i just saw a unicorn poop rainbows on my lawn.

  • Dennis

    Allen,

    Why are you so obsessed with Fox News that you would even give two seconds of thought to what Stacey Dash says on a freaking daytime talk show aboutp women taking care of their men? Who cares?

    You seriously need to GAFL.

  • kathy_lowen

    Actually the scary part is just how many conservative women still believe this kinda crap…
