Neil Cavuto Responds to Sexism Claims: “Calm Down, Toots”

A couple days ago Fox News’ Neil Cavuto shared with us a list of Christmas Shopping Tips For Men. It contained the kind of axioms your half-drunk, wildly out of touch uncle might offer over the turkey dinner.
In it, Cavuto called women “snide,” yucked it up over how much gosh-darn money we ladyfolk spend and, well, you get the idea.
Today, Cavuto penned a follow up to his original opus, lamenting how he’d been treated after spewing women-jokes that haven’t been en vogue since “The Honeymooners:”
I’m getting a lot of criticism from women about my shopping tips for men. Sexist. Crude. Dopy. One woman even wrote, misogynistic.
Unfair. Untrue. But this holiday season, I’m a giver, I’m not a hater.
So if I’ve offended some ladies, first off, calm down, Toots.
“One woman even wrote, misogynistic.” Well, shut the front door! Cavuto? You’re really listening to us? This is great! And I see you’ve written a list of “Shopping Tips For Women!” Let’s take a lo–… oh. No.
Tip 4– Don’t worry about getting too big a size. Most men will eventually fit into it anyway. And we, unlike you, aren’t the least bit offended by 2X, 3X.
You were so close. Toots, over and out.
