Stefanovic says that he’s been conducting a long-term experiment on the audience by wearing the same suit every day for more than a year. The reason? To point out the sexism his female co-hosts regularly endure because of what they wear.
Stefanovic says that he wore the same blue suit, which Fairfax described as a “cheap Burberry knock-off,” for a year. His wardrobe differentiated day by day with only a new tie once in a while. He says that he has received no criticism and it seems that no one realized his sparse wardrobe.
“No one has noticed. No one gives a shit,” says Stefanovic. “But women, they wear the wrong colour and they get pulled up. They say the wrong thing and there’s thousands of tweets written about them.”
And who do you think write most of those tweets?
It’s women who police other women, tell them ‘no wearing white after Labour Day!’, etc. Straight men couldn’t care less.
As Van Morrison sang, “All the girls walk by, dressed up for each other…” So it always is…
Note that several commenters on the piece noted likewise.
And, if no one noticed him, that includes women, who didn’t give a shit about his doing so, either.
But progs will be progs…
