Little Girl’s Bravery In The Face Of A Lion Helps Disprove An Old Sexist Saying [VIDEO]

I once had the good fortune to see a male lion up close and personal like this. It was a magical and surreal experience for a life-long animal (especially cat) lover but I have to admit, I was a little big scared even though there was a thick layer of plexiglass between us.

Hit the jump to watch what happens and hear one male news anchor’s complete ignorance on sexism. 

Here is the video as I originally saw it, from ABC World News Now, of a little girl named Sofia at the Wellington Zoo in New Zealand. Listen closely to what the male anchor says and how the female anchor responds.

“I would have run like a little girl and wetted myself,” he says. And his fellow anchor is like…

Now that we’ve got that ridiculousness out of the way, here’s the unedited footage from Sofia: The Lion Tamer’s parents.
