stfusexists:

Credit where credit is freaking due. There aren’t many things that Megyn Kelly and I agree on, and I generally find her bullying tactic of interviewing really tough to watch. But way to give in to a feminist moment and lay the smackdown on this chucklehead! The US is light years behind on maternity AND paternity leave, and attitudes like this dude’s need to be given the Megyn Kelly treatment each and every time.  

Not only is the United States the only industrialized nation that doesn’t require paid parental leave, it is one of three countries of almost the entire world that don’t, according to a study of 181 countries. I think that’s called “American exceptionalism.”

And I’m not ready to praise Megyn Kelly for saying the right thing. She was defending herself. Something tells me that she wouldn’t have taken this stand if that douche nozzle were talking about any other woman.
