creativeexpressive said: What's your problem with Sofia Vegara's skit at the Emmys Ceremony?
For those who missed it, the clip can be seen here.
Lots of people thought it was sexist, demeaning, and perpetuating the idea that women are there to just look pretty and twirl on a pedestal.
After the event, Sofia was asked about it and said “I think its absolutely the opposite. It means that somebody can be hot and also be funny and make fun of herself.” (via Entertainment Weekly)
Smart Girls, what do you think?
I feel like if there was a guy up there with her, it wouldn’t have been an issue. But they’d never do it with a male (especially while another male is talking/presenting), and that’s where the sexism lies. If they threw Jon Hamm or something up there with her, the speech could have been similar & the intent the same, and everyone would have been happy.
