Julianna Margulies told us last night that it’s a “wonderful time for women on television“, but it was also a wonderful time to be a feminist on Twitter, because when Sofia Vergara stepped on a rotating platform to be blatantly objectified, the toxic shock syndrome took effect and feminists went apeshit because it was another opportunity to talk about the patriarchy and rape stats. Like, I can get the outrage since they had her ass up there like a piece of sweet potato pie in a diner (which is considerably less messy to eat btw), but I just assumed that everyone loves looking at Sofia Vergara like this. Even Sofia Vergara. Remember, Beyonce was on a literal stripper pole the night before and now she’s Dora Russell. And to be honest, there’s a reason they didn’t ask Lena Dunham to step up on that platform. Nobody should be subjected to that.
That being said, Happy Women’s Equality Day, everyone!
