In this week’s edition of “Problematic Women”, we break down Nikki Haley clapping back at the Palestinian leader who told her to “shut up”. Bumble, the popular dating app, is encouraging its users to report anyone with a gun in their photos. Bethany Mandel appeared on Fox & Friends to discuss why as a mother she has chosen to own a gun.

AEI’s Factual Feminist, Christina Hoff Sommers, traveled to Oregon to give a speech at Lewis & Clark Law School. Several disruptors came into the lecture hall, screaming, shouting, and playing music to drown her out. How does this type of behavior benefit any group?

Plus – did the Bachelor go too far, and what does it say about our culture? We discuss in this week’s edition of “Problematic Women,” co-hosted with Bre Payton of The Federalist.

    I downloaded it but instead of it being in the usual MP3 format it was in MP4. OK, I listened to it up until 17 minutes and some seconds then the sound went out. The final 14 minutes were silence.

    I was shocked, shocked by this show. Granted, the “The Bachelor” episode was about a woman and was problematic, but I don’t see how the discussion celebrated conservative women whom the liberal Kultursmog dismisses as problematic or called out problematic behavior by left-feminists.

    What was really shocking was that the hostesses were so familiar and invested in the show. It isn’t real, folks. In fact, that’s its only excuse. Art is cathartic. It lets us work out our feeling in the lab, as it were, of fiction, where no one gets hurt.

    But what is artificial on reality TV is just the situation. The people and the harm they suffer is real. If what the producers did to Bekka had been a Tweet-shaming, they’d be condemned and further, they’d be blocked. Our hostesses rebuked the show, but I didn’t hear them renounce it.

    I don’t expect Ricochet podcasters to renounce The Bachelor, but I do wonder why it is a common topic on multiple podcasts.
