8 thoughts on “How Every Single Discussion About Sexism and Woman-Type Stuff on the Internet (and real life) Has Ever Happened And Ever Will Happen, Always, Forever, Until the Earth Finally Falls Into The Sun. (Or until the patriarchy is finally dismantled.)

  1. Oh god, how many times have I seen that happen!

    Well, if I had five cents for every time, I’d have… at least $25.

    I was at a forum this morning where one woman asked why Australian men seem to have such deep-seated anger inside, and it went exactly the same way. Though she did use less gentle language.

    It deserves to spread like wildfire.

    Actually, the comment thread to the original post, at Gabby’s Playhouse, is a great example of how it goes. It’s just great to see it in a comic format, succinct and funny. Makes me feel better, somehow.

    My favourite is when he says “and I’m not sexist so it’s OK”.

    This seems a little fallacious.

      Well, I thought the discussion that ensued at Gaby’s blog raised that issue and many, many more. You don’t think so?

    He tells her that the earth is flat-
    He knows the facts, and that is that.
    In altercations fierce and long
    She tries her best to prove him wrong.
    But he has learned to argue well.
    He calls her arguments unsound
    And often asks her not to yell.
    She cannot win. He stands his ground.

    The planet goes on being round.
