Not one to shy away from controversy and not one to pass up a chance to open her mouth for the purpose of getting attention, Katie Hopkins laid into Brit-film and Eastenders actor and wide-boy Danny Dyer on Twitter the other day. What was his crime? For having the audacity to allow his girlfriend to propose to him when he should have “been a man” and done it himself.
Any right-thinking person would think nothing of this. After all, this is the 21st century and though arguably women have a long way to go in some areas, in other areas not so much. It is a woman’s right to ask her boyfriend to marry her. But not according to Hopkins who tweeted:
No woman should ever propose to a man. Certainly not one with a naff bum-fluff beard and dodgy squint.
Leaving aside the pointless personal attacks on each others’ respective appearance, Hopkins goes on to demonstrate precisely what equality means to some women. The double-standard is unsurprising and Hopkins goes on to engage in some classic womansplaining.
Being proposed to removes a man’s genitals
Her sexism goes on.
Presumably your bird had to fund her own diamonds too given you gave up your crown jewels saying yes?
Casual sexism is so easily ignored and coming from a career woman like Hopkins, comes across as amusingly hypocritical. She reduces men to the typical sexist stereotype as protector, provider and leader. That might be what she wants in a man, but not every man is comfortable in that and not every woman wants an alpha male. Some of us appreciate women who are more proactive, more willing to show that she is interested in the relationship by not acting with passivity.
Hopkins stop womansplaining and please disappear into obscurity? You had your 15 minutes of fame on The Apprentice and that was something like 8 years ago now.
