Some anonymous reader decided to check out G’s Blog, From the Big Apple to the Big Bear, and noticed right away that there was a post with a gigantic picture from the 1960s American sitcom, I Dream of Jeannie.
I dunno about you, but I think that show was sexist:
I Dream of Jeannie is a 1960s American sitcom with a fantasy premise. The show starred Barbara Eden as a 2000-year-old female genie, and Larry Hagman as an astronaut who becomes her master, with whom she falls in love and eventually marries. (Wikipedia)
Quite frankly, in the context of what G was blogging about at the time, it’s funny, but it’s clearly sexist: Jeannie is mastered by a male astronaut and does his bidding. Given the awfulness and horribleness of sexist (and misogynistic) behavior, I am surprised the photo was used at all.
