Air Conditioning? Yeah, That's Sexist

Shame on all you misogynistic pigs who dare to turn up the AC in your house, all in an effort to stifle women!

It sounds crazy, but that's actually the latest feminist argument: Air conditioning is sexist. Atlantic staff writer Taylor Lorenz tweeted Sunday that air conditioning is "unhealthy, bad, miserable, and sexist."

Lorenz called attention to the "engine of patriarchy" that is air conditioning and linked back to an article by fellow Atlantic writer Olga Khazan about colder workspaces damaging women's productivity.

So the next time you retreat into the chilly confines of your home to escape the summer heat, remember that it comes at the price of devaluing women.
