Kit Harington Wants You To Know That Men Are Victims Of Sexism, Too

Apparently, being brought back from the dead doesn't make you woke

This is really too easy, but here we are: Kit Harington, you know nothing.

The Game of Thrones star weighed in on "sexism toward men" in an interview with The Sunday Times, and honestly, Kit, can you not? Apparently, being resurrected from the dead does not make you woke.

"I think there is a double standard," Harington said. "If you said to a girl, 'Do you like being called a babe?' and she said, 'No, not really,' she'd be absolutely right."

Yes, Kit. Couldn't agree more. I know how you feel about the word "hunk," and I wouldn't want to demean you by using it. Carry on.

"I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks," he added. "It’s demeaning. Yes, in some ways you could argue I've been employed for a look I have. But there's a sexism that happens towards men. There's definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well. At some points during photoshoots when I'm asked to strip down, I felt that."

Wait. What? Admittedly, no one wants to be objectified or judged for how they look. Equating your need to be more than your lovely curls with the institutionalized sexism faced by women every day in Hollywood seems a little, I don't know, dumb. And incredibly tone-deaf.

Sexism spans far deeper than objectification, Kit. You can just be a victim of sexism "at some points." Did you know only 14 percent of all TV episodes in 2013 and 2014 were directed by women? And that Game of Thrones, a show that routinely uses rape as a plot device, is part of the problem? (Please come back, Michelle MacLaren.)

Oh, Kit. Have you learned nothing from Daenerys Targaryen?
