Not my parents, but I watched Near Dark with a friend and his mom decided she was going to sit in on it too. That was a rough experience. Also my dad came in and sat down while I was watching Bad Santa, and I turned it off after the "fuck me santa" bit.
Anybody else find issue with the "I'd rather they hire somebody who's qualified than hire a quota woman" rhetoric? (It's in there, even if I haven't worded it well.) Isn't there a ton of implicit othering in this logic?
That's just a sneaky way to allow criticism of any potential candidates while still seeming progressive.
That being said, it would also probably be a nightmare for a lot of different reasons - if you thought people hated Patrick a little too much, you probably couldn't fathom the amount and type of nastiness a woman would get thrown at her.
