Are you fucking kidding me?

A Double Jeopardy category called “who’s that girl director?” just aired. The “easiest” question in the category asked for the director of When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle (you know, one of the most successful female directors of all time, who is Nora Ephron). No one got it. The next easiest question asked for The Hurt Locker, and a dude guessed “who is Sofia Coppola?” The next two were about actresses-turned-directors Drew Barrymore and Angelina Jolie (the were both correctly guessed).

The “hardest” question was looking for Amy Heckerling—I coulda answered it when I was nine—and some dude guessed a male director. (I forget who it was, I gotta wait til it goes up on J. Archive in a few days.)

I am gonna give these sexist nerds EVERY SWIRLIE. If you don’t know who Kathryn Bigelow is, what are you even doing on Jeopardy??

    Firstly, is there nothing problematic with “Who’s that girl director?” as a category? It’s not fucking cute.

    The male director was John Hughes, which I guess, I mean… he wrote a lot of really interesting characters, so it’s not...
