Neil Cavuto Says an 18-Year-Old Female is a "Young Girl"

Reported by Melanie - June 6, 2007 -

Three or four times today (June 6, 2007), Neil Cavuto, Fox's "business news" guru, hyped an impending press conference that was going to give details about the very sad murder of Kelsey Smith, an 18-year-old Kansas City-area woman missing since Saturday evening. At one point, Cavuto, the go-to guy on Fox for sex videos and booby guests, referred to Ms. Smith as a "young girl," reaffirming his paternalistic, patronizing view of adult female human beings, otherwise know as women.

Referring to Ms. Smith as a "girl" is offensive enough but, "young girl?!" To me, a "young girl" is someone in the range of a 4-year old. Just wondering Neil, do you think of 18-year-old males as "young boys?"
