Degrading Women in Italy
Last night we, Luisa and I, were channel surfing and started watching this terrible show on Mediaset 1. They paired nerdy smart guys with beautiful stupid young women. The women, all young and very nice looking were dressed to the sexual max and the guys probably dressed themselves. Then they put the girls on a table in front of the guys one couple at a time and asked the girls to identify some pictures of famous Italians, like an ex president for example. It would have been in the US like asking someone to recognize a picture of Gerald Ford or even Bill Clinton. They did not recognize any of them and the host gave them a bunch of hints until they finally sort of sounded out the names. Then they had to do a sexy dance on top of the table in front of the guys who couldn't decide if they should look up their skirts or not. We kept it on too long hoping that at least one of the girls would answer at least one question, but none did. Well I have to admit I don't mind looking at the girls, but how degrading can these TV producers get. We turned it off before really understanding what the point was if there was one.
