Wimmins on the Internetz

So, this thing happened to Kate Beaton. (Read the comments, as they are awesome.)

Gabby Schulz made a comic about how this happens a lot. (Do not read the comments, they are full of fail. With a few notable exceptions OH HEY THERE SCOTT MCLOUD.)

Meanwhile, here is a baby Japanese Serow.

BUT DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND NOT ALL GUYS ARE LIKE THAT

HOW CAN YOU MAKE A COMIC THAT DEPICTS A LOT OF GUYS ACTING LIKE ASSHOLES THAT IS SO SEXIST

I'LL BET YOU HAVEN'T HAD MANY BOYFRIENDS (BECAUSE THAT IS TOTALLY TERRIBLE IF YOU ARE A GIRL, WHICH YOU TOTALLY MUST BE BECAUSE ONLY GIRLS POINT OUT SEXISM THAT HAPPENS TO GIRLS)

Ugh, that Burnaway person is being so ridiculous. Kate Beaton had civilly explained why a certain type of "compliments" make her uncomfortable, and he, for some reason, feels entitled to demand that she suck it up and "be a gracious recipient." If she said she feels uncomfortable by such compliments, then it's no longer a compliment. Do these type of guys not have the creativity to come up with less sexual compliments? Do they think that internet anonymity makes this sort of sexism "okay"?

When I hear a man tell a woman why she shouldn't get offended by sexist language i always feel like kicking them in the balls and explain to them how it doesn't hurt.
That LJ blog had so many winful comments, but this one was my favorite. I've been sexually harassed by these kind of "compliments" before, and now I have a good comeback. :D

I'm not a fortune-teller, so I can't tell you whether Oyu is going to have your babbies or not. Maybe try asking the internet psychic (http://www.infiniteadvice.com/) instead?

Good luck, dude!
