My jaw dropped...

Sexism goes both ways!

I'm watching "Today". A woman was charged with the murder/rape of a little girl (Sandra Cantu). One person quoted in the news story said, "You'd expect this of a man...but a woman?" My. Jaw. Dropped.

REALLY? We *expect* our men to rape? How does that make you feel good guys? Does this mean we're supposed to ALLOW rape?

An expert clarified later that only a psychopath would do this (man or woman)...but I COULDN'T believe that the Today show would allow that quote from an obviously ignorant woman to make a part of their news story.
