Who’s up for a few words of who has it “easy” and who doesn’t from a Hollywood actress who is married to a billionaire and seconded by a Guardian opinion writer?

Generalizations? You got ’em:

“Men do a lot less,” she told Net-a-Porter’s magazine, The Edit, “they are less demanding on themselves and their standards are lower, yet they feel entitled to ask for a raise or a promotion.”


“(Women) are a lot more demanding of ourselves than men are. It’s a horrible sensation – we’re not enough at work, we’re not enough for the guy who’s cheating on us, we’re not enough for our children who always want more of us, no matter what we give,” the star said.

As we’re well aware, that kind of sexism and stereotyping is acceptable only if it comes from the Left.
