    Re: The View

    Kellie Gerardi, 24 years old, has submitted her application for a one-way trip to the planet Mars. A group of settlers will be going in 2023 to make Mars habitable. She is quite serious.

    So this chick guest hosting, whoever the heck she was, said something to the effect that she wouldn't allow her daughter to go up there because they'd get "gang raped."

    I have to hand it to Kellie, she handled the situation amazingly well. While giving this woman every indication that she thought she was a fool, the regulars just fumbled as they tried to back step a way out of the conversation.

    If Barbara had any class, she would have immediately dismissed her guest host from the table.

    My son has applied for one way trip to Mars as well. I thought he was joking when he first told me about it, but he was very serious, he is 25 and studying Anthropology so to be involved in the start of colony is just his idea of perfect. The fact that its one way and I may never see him again did not even enter his head, I guess he will have to learn to clean his own bathroom hahaha
    Good on her for putting the host in her place, the assumption that it will turn into some kind of uncivilized Lord of the Flies is just nuts as the majority of people applying are as a nerdy and geeky as my son and science and study are far more important than anything else, plus is she thinking that the place will just be 100;s of men and 1 female? What an idiot

    Thanks. Never watched any of the housewife shows so I have no clue who she is. Sounds like an idiot, though.

    Neither have I, dagwood. That explains why I had no clue who she was.

    Lucynda, I'm so glad you posted! While watching the program, I was sitting on my couch thinking to myself, "If I were that child's mother, I'd be so offended!" And basically, that's who you are. I have a science and technology geek of my own, so I completely respect your feelings and I wholeheartedly agree with your thoughts.

    I don't care how farfetched she thought the idea was, there was no excuse to insinuate something so repugnant. What's even worse is that she had to come to her own defense, while the "ladies of The View" acted like wimps.

    What an incredibly sexist statement for her to make.
