(PCM) Long-running hit television game show “Jeopardy” fired up quite the social media storm after one of its’ categories called “What Women Want” was deemed incredibly sexist.
What really seemed to have people up in arms was not so much the name of the category itself, but rather the answers to some of the questions which included vacuum cleaners and Pilates for example.
Apparently, this is not the first time that Jeopardy has received some criticism for the way that it handles gender equality. Many feel that host Alex Trebek doesn’t praise the female contestants success on the show the same way that he does a man and also many of the shows categories and questions are geared towards males except for other sexist categories such as “Someone’s In The Kitchen” alluding to the fact that, that is where women would most likely be found.
“Jeopardy” has yet to comment on the situation and social media outcry, however they were more than happy to tweet about Trabek’s mustache making a come back. Probably not the brightest PR move!
The rumors are true. Alex’s ‘stache is back—and it’s on Twitter! @Alexs_Mustache
