Jess Phillips reads out sexist email she receives during BBC Politics Live ...

From judging women for having actual bodies to exploring trials and tribulations of being an ‘alpha male’, many misogynistic male podcast hosts have infamously missed the mark (to say the least).

Now, a TikTok trend of women mocking and mimicking these sexist hosts has gone viral - and we are loving it.

The trend involves women using a TikTok filter called ‘bearded cutie’ - which comes with a stubbly beard, bushy yet manicured brows and septum piercings - then going on to list everything they think women should or should not be doing, true sexist-male-podcast-host style.

The trend was first created by TikToker Elsa Kew (@sadimmigrantkid), whose video now has over 15 million views and 1.9 million likes on the app.

Her video began with her trying out the filter under the initial, jokey premise that if women didn’t like the way they looked with it on, it should be seen as a humbling moment.

But, Elsa switched it up and said: “If I looked like this I would start a podcast.”

Next thing, she was in front of a microphone and said: “You know what women don’t be doing?”

Since then, many other women have taken part in the trend and the results are hilarious.
