This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things: Sexism and the Yeah But

I’m sure you’ve all seen the story from last week about Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton. You know, the one where a reporter asked him a question about one of his receivers becoming more and more comfortable with his route running…the one where Cam then proceeded to snicker and make mock that reporter?

Did I mention the reporter is a woman, and he basically implied he finds it cute when women pretend to know about football? Well, he did.

I was fully prepared to make a funny-ish video about Cam’s response, but before I got to it, the Yeah But Police had already struck and now the reporter was the one being labeled as the offender, because of dumb tweets she posted 5 years ago.

Check out the video I made instead…this shit has to stop people!
