More proof how awesome it is to be a dude, as if any were needed
Guys—imagine how many dress suits you’d have to own if you were the anchor on a national morning show like The Today Show or Good Morning America.
Seasons change, fashions change, and it’s not like you wear the same one twice in one week. People notice this stuff. You’re on television, dammit!
HAHAHA, no, you’re a dude, no one cares.
Today Australia anchor Karl Stefanovic was sick of how much crap his co-anchor got about her outfits and hairstyle, so he conducted a year-long scientific experiment. He wore the same blue suit every day, day after day, to see how long it took for viewers to say something.
They never did.
“No one has noticed. No one gives a shit,” he said, obviously not on the air because it may be Australia, but come on.
On the air, he explained, “Women are judged much more harshly and keenly for what they do, what they say and what they wear. I’ve worn the same suit on air for a year—except for a couple of times because of circumstance—to make a point. I’m judged on my interviews, my appalling sense of humor, on how I do my job, basically. Whereas women are quite often judged on what they’re wearing or how their hair is.”
Good thing this sort of thing is exclusive to life in the public eye and not the sort of thing women have to deal with the everyday business world. Whew.
Here’s Stefanovic letting viewers in on his big experiment:
