In case you were wondering, mysogeny is alive and well in the 21st century

Case in point – Glenn Beck appears to take offense at Meghan McCain (John McCain’s daughter) being in a skin cancer PSA. And by “take offense” I mean feigns vomiting and disgust for 10 minutes on his radio show. There’s nothing quite like a pale, middle aged, white guy with a double chin commenting negatively on a young, intelligent perfectly normal woman’s body. And not even her whole body, just her bare shoulders. Is it any wonder that eating disorders, cutting, and other issues resulting from low self-esteem are rampant in our society?

Luckily, Meghan McCain doesn’t take this kind of thing lying down. Here’s her response (as well as the original commercial and audio of Glenn’s tirade.)
