Fiery Gutfeld: Feminist Outrage Overshadows Historic Comet Landing
Scientists' incredible accomplishment of landing the Philae probe on a comet 300 million miles away from Earth has been eclipsed by the attire of a European Space Agency physicist who appeared on television after the landing.
On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld blasted off on the controversy and claims of sexism surrounding British scientist Matt Taylor's colorful bowling shirt, which featured comic book drawings of scantily-clad women.
"A website called the apparel 'casual misogyny' that stops women from entering science," Gutfeld said, noting Taylor's tear-filled apology on Friday made him want to vomit.
"So a man lands a rocket on a comet - something no one else has ever done - and he's reduced to tears over a shirt?" Gutfeld scoffed.
"Thank you, Twitter, for turning the world into a bully chamber. It used to be one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. Now it's one angry tweet trumps an awesome feat."
Gutfeld stated that the shirt was not sexist, just tacky, and it's no surprise that a rocket scientist is a poor dresser who cares more about the world than his wardrobe.
"So why bother sending rockets at all? Seriously: do earthlings deserve the effort when they savage those who try? Maybe we don't deserve Matt Taylor. We do deserve Twitter - a world where trending is cooler than doing. And 140 characters replaces our own."
