Bad Marc Ellis

A sociologist from Waikato University (yes seriously) has criticised Marc Ellis for reinforcing traditional male chauvinist attitudes to women on Sportscafe.

Ironically most of my female friends love that show.

Anyway get these quotes:

Overall, our analysis revealed that Sportscafe constructed a discourse about gender that privileged new lad masculinity and reinforced the marginalisation of women, while masking its messages in boyish humour.

They do note though:

Ellis himself had once been filmed in a sado-masochistic outfit being led on a leash by Matthew Ridge through a gay part of Buenos Aires.

Ellis should be in Cabinet!!!
