"Insulting to just about everyone on Earth"

When Glamour published an article entitled "13 Little Things That Can Make A Man Fall Hard For You", which depicted men as overgrown infants who need to be pandered to and women as servile and existing solely to please, the knives were immediately out. This response from Vice's Joel Golby is spot on, addressing each ridiculous tip in turn. Seriously, who on earth thinks being handed a cold beer as you step out of the shower would be welcome?

Since the proliferation of take-downs from the likes of Golby, the original article has been quite literally taken down, Glamour offering a lame apology of sorts in its place. All in all, a heartening example of how the internet can be quick to call people out for everyday sexism.
