Although I have never watched the show Gossip Girl, I agree with your comments about Chuck Bass. Sexism in the entertainment business creates a sense that these micro-aggressions are not disrespectful. Women, especially young ladies, grow up seeing interactions such as the ones Chuck Bass has with women are normal. The boundaries between appropriate mannerism and sexist discrimination become incredibly blurry in every aspect of these women's’ lives. Rape culture is an issue that our society needs to discuss more.
