Fox News Host Degrades Young Women, Says They Should Stick with Tinder or Match.com

guilfoyle-3When it comes to voting demographics, females are one of the groups that drive me the most insane. For the life of me, I really don’t get why so many women vote Republican. Just take the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 for instance. Of the 535 members of Congress (House and Senate), there were 160 members who voted against this bill.

Every single one of them were Republican. 


Then there’s always the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, whose dissenters were almost entirely Republican (though a handful of Democrats voted against it).

Or their laughable, outdated and often sexist beliefs on birth control.

Well, Tuesday on Fox News’ The Five, the co-hosts were discussing what they claimed is a “ridiculous” belief by liberals that Republicans are anti-women. They cited one poll from one race out of Colorado that showed Democratic Sen. Mark Udall’s edge with women voters had slipped over the last few months to “prove” that Democrats are losing women voters. Seriously, one poll – one race. That was their evidence. And even then Udall still had a 9 point advantage over his opponent with female voters.

The big “point” they tried to make was that as women age, they become more conservative. Which, according to a few polls, is somewhat true. But what almost all of these same polls will also show is that the more educated someone is (regardless of gender), the more likely they are to vote for Democrats. But you’ll never hear that on Fox News.

After a few minutes of the conservative members of the show spitting out right-wing talking points back and forth with one another, trying to comically up-sell how “pro-women” Republicans really are, the video ends with conservatives being, well, conservatives.

While talking about the differences between younger and older female voters, co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle (the same brilliant mind who recently said she wanted Vladimir Putin as our leader to get things “done right”) decided to essentially call younger female voters dumb and incompetent.

“The same reason why young women on juries are not a good idea. They don’t get it,” Guilfoyle said.

She then went on to say that younger females don’t have the same “life experiences” like paying bills, the mortgage or taking care of  children that more mature women have. You know, because apparently you can’t be an independent, intelligent woman unless you’ve first bought a house and had kids.

Apparently she doesn’t feel that younger males also “suffer” from this type of incompetence, as they were noticeably left out of her ignorant rant.


But if it wasn’t enough that she pretty much dismissed the level of intelligence a female can possess based completely on age discrimination, and a fairly sexist view of what makes a “true woman,” Guilfoyle just couldn’t help herself as she continued to stereotype and bash younger women.

When pushed by fellow co-host Bob Beckel on her stance that younger women shouldn’t be on juries, she said, “I didn’t say they shouldn’t be. I just thank and excuse them so they can go back on Tinder or Match.com.”

So, she claims that she isn’t saying younger women shouldn’t be on a jury – except that’s exactly what she’s saying.

See how conservatives do this? They say something that’s fairly direct (like saying young women should stick to Tinder and Match.com instead of doing “grown up things” like serving on a jury), then deny that’s what they actually said.

But this segment defines the conservative take on women. Even while trying to claim that Republicans are more pro-women than Democrats, they couldn’t make it through an entire segment without ignorantly degrading millions of American females.

    Only on Faux can repubs ‘discuss’ a ‘“ridiculous” belief by liberals that Republicans are anti-women’ by calling females dumb and incompetent (and not even put it that nicely).

    Or can they, while NOT saying that women shouldn’t be on juries, say that women shouldn’t be on juries.

    • robingee

      It’s like a misogynist going, “You dumb bitch. I’m not a misogynist!”

  • Sandy Greer

    So young women are excused by Prosecutors from jury duty because they haven’t enough worldly experience. While I’ve always been excused by Defense because late husband’s best friend was a SF police officer. I’d bet most people (both sexes) are relieved to be excused from jury duty for any reason at all.

  • Great! Wouldn’t those women watching FOX vote for the GOP?

  • JOHN McCARTHY NUDE ARREST

    all of my regressive crybaby “friends” will CRY loudly about my post here— but: ( DONNNNNcha HATE when the leadoff is “but”?) Guilfoyle is the ONLY sexy woman on FOX “news”…..unless half governor palin is considered a FOX “news”-ite. On another note—notice how white trash regressive scumbags on the right BITCHED about OBAMA raising GAS prices; and now that they are falling faster than ted cruz/rick perry/chris christies presidential hopes we NEVER hear about it on that “NEWS” channel??? Hmmmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    That proves the point I keep making that conservative women are just as bad, if not worse, than conservative men. How pathetic conservatives are, and just when I think they can’t get more pathetic they do.

      Have you not read the tweets that candidate Wendy Davis has been tweeting? She is a democrat, and well if what she is saying isn’t comsidered pathetic to you; then you need to read the definition for pathetic. What pathetic is that you actually read this article and believed everything about it. What she said is true. Coming from a young, FEMALE who is a conservative, I agree with her. Half of the females I know, are not mature enough to find a job. I am young, I have a job, I volunteer to help people with physical disabilities, and guess what? I am a Republican!!! Surprise! Conservative females can definitely be independent. I was raised by my mother, who had 6 kids – with one man whom she was married to – by herself. I would like to see the democrats try to do that. Oh right, they wouldn’t because they would have used birth control, or had an abortion. For the other commenters of this article to bash a party, and say that what they is is incorrect, is very hypocritical.

  • Barry James

    They all know that their party is dying!
