In true Tucker Carlson style, the right-wing pundit has now gone on a rant during his Fox News show 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' in which he questions why we now have feminists in science. Yes, really.
During the segment, Carlson first played a video - full of scary music and effects - that showed Democratic politicians warning about the dangers of climate change, before highlighting a recent study asking whether 'toxic masculinity' is the driver behind climate change.
He continued that the study argued:
When men’s gender identity was threatened, they tried to reassert their masculinity through environmentally damaging choices.
The report added that:
...unconscious bias is revealed, it has the potential to help society shift our increasingly precarious relationship with the environment for the better.
Carlson then summarised:
If we want to save the environment we have to suppress men.
Carlson then turned to conservative author Mark Steyn, and said:
How did we wind up with a country in which feminists do science?
OK, right, nice one, Carlson. Just dropping in a bit of really not-so-casual sexism there for one and all to see.
Deputy director of Media Matters in America, Andrew Lawrence, noticed the clip and shared it on Twitter:

Chris Hayes is what every man would be if feminists ever achieved absolute power in this country: apologetic, bespectacled, and deeply, deeply concerned about global warming and the patriarchal systems that cause it.
