PAULA DEEN'S SEXIST COOKING CONTEST (Please Watch and Share!)

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE THIS VIDEO ON FACEBOOK / TWITTER ETC - SPREAD THE WORD!

PAULA DEEN'S CHANNEL:

YOUTUBE BLOG ENTRY:

In this video, David expresses his outrage at the competition currently being promoted on the YouTube Creator's Corner Blog by fellow YouTube cook Paula Deen.

IF YOU ARE OFFENDED BY THIS CONTEST TOO, FEEL FREE TO LODGE A COMPLAINT WITH YOUTUBE, KRAFT FOODS (The sponsor of the contest) OR WITH PAULA DEEN HERSELF.

Her contest is only open to women and strictly forbids men from entering the contest, in what can only be described as the most blatant examples of sexism I have seen in quite some time. (See blog link above)

I am stunned that YouTube would promote such an obviously sexist contest. If I created a competition that banned women from entering, I would be torn apart (and possibly kicked off YouTube) but apparently it's OK for women to discriminate against men.

I love how sexism is the new path to female empowerment. For shame Paula Deen.

March Out For March - Crackneck Point, NSW (Australia)

In this video, David leaves the indoors behind and steps out into nature to show you one of the most beautiful sunrises in the world. Crackneck Point is a lookout on the NSW Central Coast, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. The gorgeous orange sunrise over the water is one of the most amazing things you'll ever see.

This is my contribution to "March Out For March" - an idea created by fellow Aussie YouTuber "dctcool" who thought it would be nice to get us bloggers and vloggers from behind our computers and out into the world.
