Sexist Generalizations abt women

Several comments in the latest episode were very sexist esp regarding celebrities and their dating timelines. Just because US Weekly or whatever says a celebrity dated a new person a day after breaking up after someone else doesn’t make it true. Most women do not have backup men lined up when relationships are failing, most women are not alike. Stop generalizing and stop using the f-ed up media coverage of young vulnerable celebrities to justify those generalizations.
