As I said earlier, Brooke Baldwin took to the fainting couch after Fox Sports personality Clay Travis used the word “boobs” on her show yesterday.
Well, apparently Brooke has yet to recover from the trauma.
This morning, she actually penned an op-ed about her harrowing experience titled Brooke Baldwin: Speaking like this to women in 2017? No way.
My guess is that Baldwin was feeling pretty stupid after Twitter pretty much shredded her for her overly sensitive reaction to what is pretty much a non-issue.
But instead of just letting it go, she felt the need to justify why it was so traumatizing.
And her op-ed is as stupid as you’d expect.
I quickly felt myself turning red — getting irritated and angry. My mind was racing. My face, I could tell, was incredulous. In the thick of it all, I could see my other guest, Keith Reed, was equally aghast.
The newsroom around me fell silent. I was staring into the camera trying to make sense of what was unfolding on live television.
Oh, the humanity!!!
I even caught my cameraman Jay’s eyes in disbelief.
Is anybody else rolling their eyes?
But she went on.
I thought again: “It is 2017, and this grown man is on my show talking with me — a female host — about boobs. Is this seriously happening?”
Listen, if you get the vapors over someone saying “boobs,” you aren’t living in 2017.
Instead, you’re living in the Victorian era – that long-ago time when women expected to be shielded from anything that might offend them.
And I hate to break it to you, Brooke. But you aren’t coming off as an empowered woman.
Instead, you sound like a overly sensitive pearl-clutcher ill-equipped to handle the slightest offense.

If your friend really had balls, the sound of someone saying “boobs” wouldn’t completely disarm her.
And the fact that this non-incident has so overwhelmed her that she needs to write an op-ed about the trauma only reinforces the idea that women are not capable of handling even the slightest offensive word.
Had Travis said, “Show me your boobs, Brooke,” I could understand getting offended.
But he didn’t.
And let me give you some perspective, Brooke.
Speaking as a woman who has been called a racist, a Nazi and the popular Leftist stand-by “cunt,” I find your inability to handle even hearing the word “boobs” kind of pathetic.
And believing that women should be shielded from every little offense isn’t very “2017” at all.
In fact, it sounds to me like Brooke Baldwin would be far more comfortable living in 1817.
