Jesse Watters, a host on Fox News, said that single women and voters under 40 have been captured by the Democrats. He went on to say that in order for these ladies to get married, they need to fall in love and just settle down. I’m not sure what planet Mr Watters is living on, but it’s time for a reality check.
Here are three reasons why Mr Watters’ remarks are uninformed and offensive:
1) The assumption that all women want to get married is outdated and sexist.
2) The assumption that all voters under 40 are single is also inaccurate and offensive.
3) The idea that you can just “settle down” after you find someone to marry is unrealistic and naive.
Firstly, the assumption that all women want to get married is outdated and sexist. In 2018, there are more single women than ever before, and many of them are choosing to stay single by choice. So, when Mr Watters says that single women have been “captured” by the Democrats, he’s forgetting that some of us actually like being single! Secondly, the assumption that all voters under 40 are single is also inaccurate and offensive. Many of us are in committed relationships, or even married! And even if we were single, Mr Watters’ remarks would still be offensive because they suggest that we’re somehow less competent or capable because we’re not married. Finally, the idea that you can just “settle down” after you find someone to marry is unrealistic and naive. Settling down takes hard work, compromise, and a whole lot of patience – something that Mr Watters clearly doesn’t understand.
In conclusion, Mr Watters’ remarks are uninformed, offensive, and out-of-touch with reality. Single women don’t need Jesse Watters telling us to fall in love and settle down – we’re doing just fine on our own, thank you very much!
