    Came into this thread to have a light hearted laugh over how the script that randomly crops thumbnails for the front page has gained sentience.

    But shit, apparently humor is frowned upon in here.

    That comic really wasn't funny. The video brings up a valid problem of sexual harassment. In our culture we tell women not to get assaulted but don't often tell men not to assault. Moreover, many attendees at these cons do have social skills issues and may even be on the autism spectrum. I saw the video as helpful.

    Seems like the people who made the video liked it at least.

    I think that's what's most important when it comes to jokes.

    Sadly, this is probably true.

    People are angry over this?

    They're satirizing a good video in their own way that is ALSO hysterically funny not because of the subject matter they're satirizing, but because of the hilarious portrayal of the innate perversity of Gabe the character.

    That's it. I wish people would be less dumb.

    Yes we do. Boys hear it all throughout school. There are laws against it. You can get fired for sexual harassment; and not even necessarily for harassment, but for something being interpreted as harassment. Men are even socially admonished for staring at attractive women.

    Men are told not to harass women, and to treat them with deference from the time they're born. It doesn't mean men aren't told this, just because some men don't listen to this.

    If you show up to a convention full of sex-starved nerds, dressed as some nerd's comic book crush, you will get stared at and you will get unwanted attention. Why? Because there are some guys who are dip-shit assholes with no social skills, or ability to read social cues.

    Of course men should not harass women. It's obvious. However, some men give absolutely no fucks and are never going to give a fuck. That's why we tell women what they can do to avoid harassment. Can one not fight a battle on two fronts? Can you not walk and chew gum at the same time?
