Here's my platform that I take with glee: Fuck Ross from #Friends.
I've always had a distaste with his #wewereonabreak shit, and in this episode especially, The one with the male nanny, he's so sexist. He can't accept breaking gender norms, despite his own unfortunate upbringings. And he doesn't make it a place for understanding, he continues to stew the hostile stereotype.
Remember when he didn't like Ben, his own son, playing with a Barbie? Despite the fact that Ben has two moms and would therefore feel comfortable with a Barbie and not G.I. Joe? Sexist.
Remember when he was dating Rachel and didn't like her co-worker because he made her feel accepted and comfortable in her new workplace/first grown-up job? Controlling
Remember when he had anger issues and blew them off as his job being paranoid instead of dealing with them in a healthy and professional manner?
Remember when he sang inappropriate songs to his daughter?
REMEMBER WHEN HE DATED A COLLEGE STUDENT (though to be fair, she was a rational, consenting adult and the relation existed with no hand in advancing her grade) AND HE FOLLOWED HER TO SPRING BREAK TO MAKE SURE SHE WOULDN'T HAVE A GOOD TIME WITH HER MALE FRIENDS IN A WAY THAT WAS AGE-APPROPRIATE AND HER CHOICE??
I have more reasons, but also, fuck Ross.
