Maybe I’ll start a regular journal entry:
PET PEEVE TUESDAY
Check out this article about Dressing The Part or Not. I have left a comment there.
And “Meet the Undressed… where the author says:
“You wonder whether the news executives tarting up their female journalists aren’t the Ron Burgundys stuck in the age of disco. Perhaps they’re the dated ones, not giving women the liberty to be serious…” and “Half naked may be the babe rule for entertainment shows, but must that dress code extend to women of substance on news programs? So it would seem.”
This is one of my most infuriating Pet Peeves:
Women who wear sleeveless attire in the wintertime – in cold climates like this:
This is mostly aimed at TV women, and they are driving me right up the wall with all the bare skin showing on TV these days. No, I am not a prude, but I am cold in the wintertime – SOME of us have to conserve on our heating bills and we keep our homes cooler than a TV studio obviously does – which must be up in the 90’s for all these bimbettes to be relegated to wearing BARE ARMS all winter long!
I blame the men who are controlling them. There must be a dress code now on TV sets that all women must be blonde and if not naturally, then fake blondes. And all women must wear as little cloth over their skin as possible.
The sleeveless look is infuriating to me. It makes my arms feel cold just looking at them. I turn any woman off who is on TV with bare arms in the winter. Period.
So you network or cable execs who think this is luring in viewers, it is NOT luring in THIS viewer – I am turning you off and out of my life whenever I see bare arms on a female in the wintertime.
Now, if I lived in Florida or California, I would almost expect this attire on some women, but not EVERY LAST ONE OF THEM! Are they SHEEP? Don’t any of them have an original brain in their heads? I think not. Follow the leader… the guy who pays your salary… Pathetic!
Oh, now I’m in shock — I’ve got MSNBC on the TV, and there is a woman commenting who has an appropriate style pretty purple jacket covering up her shoulders and arms, and her hair looks like her natural dark brown color with NO STRIPES….. I’ll keep her on for a bit as it’s such a nice change from the blonde bare-armed bimbettes (BBB’s), and you KNOW who you are…
Cheers and Jeers,
