So there's this from Conan O'Brien:
And Jenna Lee's response here, in which she admonishes O'Brien on the grounds that she's a wife and a new mother. And a daughter too.
Many news outlets are pointing to the irony of her response, given that it's a standard practice at Fox News to feature female anchors in short skirts with heavy makeup, etc. And apparently there's a leg cam!!
But I think the interesting thing is how she frames her response: "as a wife, and a new mom, this trashy comment is not only inappropriate, it's clearly ridiculous. And not even funny! I'm also someone's daughter..." Because if you weren't a wife and mother and someone's daughter it would be OK to say inappropriate things about you? Because a woman's worth is entirely derivative of the social relations that legitimize her existence?
It's a very telling response, isn't it?
