  2. Review: Love & Engineering Is Not For The Ladies Or Anyone Who Isn’t A Misogynist

Well, after checking out the show a few times, I came to the conclusion that most of the characters on the show are completely unlikeable, especially given the contempt with which they treat the "pretty girl."

  4. No, Gillian Anderson’s The Fall Is Not Just “Classy Misogyny”

    It's not sexist to talk about sexism.

    Sorry, baboons. No offense.

    You've been Jossed. No, wait, that's something different.

    A new Tropes Vs. Women in Video Games installment hit the web on Monday, and with it came the requisite (in the oh-of-course sense, not the this-should-actually-happen sense) wave of backlash against creator Anita Sarkeesian. If you're one of those people who gives Sarkeesian hell because "she's just listing things you could find on Wikipedia!," Joss Whedon thinks you're missing the point.

  10. Sorry To Burst Your Masturbatory Comic Bubble (No, I’m Not)

They’re under the impression comics are for men. Men only. And the characters therein, specifically the female characters, are there for them to ogle. The mere thought of that being taken away from them is frightening (even though, you know, porn and porn comics!). So frightening they will do anything to stop it. And they think silencing women with threats is the answer.
