  5. Maitland Ward:

    I don't necessarily think it's a conscious decision on the reporters part to demean women. Honestly, it's what fans are interested in, they want to hear about the glamorous fashions and who's with who. And I don't think they're asking men really deep, thought provoking questions either, for the most part. If I thought that, I would definitely have a problem with it. There is a lot of scrutiny of women's looks as opposed to men's, which is unfortunate. I think that's more the issue, why women are asked more about their looks than men.
