Jeffrey = already my least favorite "Project Runway" contestant

Oh my God, I hate Jeffrey on "Project Runway." He just said of Angela, "I have one word for you to sum her up: feminazi."

What. The. Hell.

First of all, hearing a man whom I already consider to be an ass say that that really makes me angry because it is just another reminder of the number of ignorant people out there who think it's okay to make gender the focus of a put-down. I can't quite articulate why it makes me so furious. It brings to mind people who said that women can't be world leaders because they get hormonal when they menstruate. Or the concept of the hysterical female. Ooh, it just outrages me!

But secondly — and even more annoyingly — once again, Jeffrey's insult makes no sense. Yes, Angela seems like a truly aggravating character from what I can tell, but it has nothing to do with being a rabid feminist. Jeffrey, you're an idiot.
