Chris Hayes tells Terry Gross about having people pay attention to his appearance once he started appearing on television
You start noticing that people are noticing how you look and it is a profoundly alienating experience when it first happens, where you go on TV and you say something about some topic of the day and on the Internet people are like, ‘What was up with that shirt?’ ‘What was up with your hair?’ and you think, ‘Oh, that’s kind of a bummer.’ I think, actually, as a man it was a really useful, tiny sliver — a tiny, empathetic window — into what navigating the world as a woman often is, in which looks are so fore-grounded and so scrutinized and so discussed.
Chris Hayes is a man after my own heart:
1) Bulls and Cubs fan.
2) “I can’t control my gender, race or sexual orientation, I can control who we have on and what voices we introduce to viewers.”
3) Talks as fast as I do.
4) Policy over pandering
6) His book was really good
I’m gunna miss ‘Up’ without him. I don’t have time to watch shows every weeknight anymore and for some reason going through 5 hrs of DVR’ed news from the week before just doesn’t do it for me anymore.
Today she told me she doesn’t like what I’m wearing. Pretty much my normal clothing. She thinks it’s not right to wear this.
Please reblog and comment so I can show her that there is nothing wrong with me.
I guess she’s never been on a college campus.
