What was probably my biggest complaint when the GoF was a video series, back in the early days of Youtube was this: as a man I have to work twice as hard for attention. Granted, the attention I get is much more focused and true than the focus cam-whores get. I remember at one point in my youtube career a young lady that had been commenting on my videos for a while sent me a private message saying that she was starting to make videos and wanted to know what I thought of the one she was posting. It was the typical and boring introduction video of a college-age girl(sorry, my dear, but it's true) there was nothing interesting about it. She was also wearing a large sweet shirt, and yet somehow that single video launched her from 0 subscribers to 200 in 4 hours. That kind of shit has always offended me. Just because I was born a man it means I have to WORK for attention.

*note* I'm being 90% facetious, ladies. If that's the angle you want to play, go right ahead. Most of the time even if you aren't trying to play the sexy-angle you'll still get people assuming that you are *end-note*

Also, the poster came in!

Ah, I hate that feeling SOOOOOO much. It's fine when women get all of those subscribers, but it's kind of a lame feeling when you've been on YouTube for over 2 years and only have like 7 subscribers compared to almost every female who has like 40+. Of course there are guys who actually have a lot more subscribers. But they all have interesting lives, as in they are attractive, live in Dublin, Ireland, or a pretty big voice in the athiest community. I guess theres a certain set of bars that people expect some one to reach before they consider watching their videos long term.

Ha, as a lady I have to say that your complaints, while they may be facetious, are also pretty justified. I'm a banquet server (waiting without the tips) and I think people tend to be nicer to me because I'm A) female and B) young-looking.

Not that that has much to do with your comic here, which I ALSO agree with for different reasons. Pretty much everyone in the world, as far as I'm concerned, can keep their clothes on.

That's almost certainly true. I had a buddy that worked in a bar a while ago, and as a man he would get roughly half the tips that the female bar tenders received. It's an unfortunate fact of life that men are much more willing to pay both money and attention to what they perceive as a piece of eye candy than women are.
