Sexism on tv

Good on Clem Bastow for pointing out sexism on tv in this article for Daily Life. (Not sure I agree about Agony Uncles, but anyway.) A job worth doing.

What I don't understand is why she included this paragraph.

(If you’re anything like me – i.e. a tiresome, man-hating feminist who would rather plait her overgrown underarm hair than engage with popular culture – it’s rather more difficult, when it comes to Australian broadcasting, to find a TV show that doesn’t display some level of sexism.)

How does that add to the argument in any positive way? Has she no editor?
