I Also Find it Funny

When people say stuff like this:

Debate sex and sexism in comics, sure. I'm all for it. Come out with a bingo card as a shorthand for people too busy to actually listen or consider opposing viewpoints ("oh we're sick of repeating ourselves"), and you're filed along with all the other crackpots who, to paraphrase Winston Churchill, can't change their mind and won't change the subject.


Listen girls, you only get to make jokes if they poke fun at just you, not other people as well as yourself. Most especially when those other people happen to be less emotional and more grounded in reality than you are. (What, me, sexist?) Plus, we we all know feminists aren't funny by definition - so stop trying to be. And completely ignore the irony that you now have bingo!.

PS - from WFA, that evil hive mind of feminist rantings.

Particularly funny given that the "consideration" and, of course, subsequent thorough rebuttals of those vacuous "opposing viewpoints" is what led to the existence of the bingo card in the first place...

Fellas, stating them anew (and anew and anew) is never going to make them reasonable arguments, even insomuch as they were ever really "arguments" to begin with...

...defining "argument" in this case as a supported statement of a given position, which is, well, what it means...

I'm also laughing at the fact that his reaction to someone saying that they got to his post from WFA is to say "oh no! now the fangirls will swarm me! in that annoying mostly serious way such guys do.

Which, needless to say, has not happened. For the same reason the bingo card was created in the first place - if all we did all day was respond to boring arguments we'd heard a hundred times before, there would be nor more hours left for anything else - and then some.

Man, what are you talking about, Mickle? I adore repeatedly explaining to men that no, Superman's six-pack is not equivalent to Wonder Woman displaying her brazilian. Really, the six hundreth time I explain it, I'm really just hitting my stride.
