HuffPo Cries “Sexism” Despite Perpetrating the Same Sexism Sixty Minutes Earlier

The Huffington Post, in a stunning display of hypocrisy, claimed that a group of women who were using their phones were not “living in the moment” and should change how they live their lives. One hour later, they called out an MLB announcer for being “mean” for making fun of a group of women who were on their phones.

Yesterday morning, the Huffington Post’s “Women” section posted this article on Facebook:

The picture shows a group of people, who are mostly female, using their phones to take pictures or videos at an event. In the picture, an elderly woman looks on. She is the only one not using a phone.

Passages from the article from the Huffington Post say, “People fell in love with the woman,” “Living for the moment, and not the memory,” and “We should all take a cue from this lady!”

Precisely one hour later, the Huffington Post’s “Women” section attacked an MLB announcer who dared say that young people should live in the moment and not be on their phones all the time:

The pictures shows a group of people, who are female, using their phones to take pictures or videos at an event.

According to that article, titled “Poor MLB Announcers Fail To Realize Taking Selfies With Friends Is Super Fun,” not living in the moment can be great and baseball is boring anyway.

Some passages from this article include, “Don’t knock selfies at baseball games until you’ve tried selfies at baseball games,” “taking selfies at baseball games has become something of a baseball tradition,” and “Baseball games can be mind-numbingly boring but taking selfies with friends at baseball games is always fun.”

Additionally, in another article in Huffington Post “Women,” the MLB announcers who mocked the young ladies for taking selfies were branded “sexist.”

That article, titled “What We’re Really Doing When We Shame Young Women For Their Selfies,” has such hypocritical lines such as, “Adults — specifically adult men — seem to feel unreasonably empowered to comment on and police the behavior of young people — specifically young women,” and “we should learn from” people who are on their phones all the time.
