How to Put Yourself Inside of a Coat


(YouTube link)

Surprise! Allie Brosch of Hyperbole and a Half looks nothing like the cartoons she draws of herself. But she has some advice on how to put your coat on so you don't look like a fool this winter. -via Metafilter


Well, it isn't sexist to observe that she is a hottie. I doubt that you would make that claim if it was a male, hottie. The only real prejudice here is about internet cartoonists.

If the person were male I doubt people would be claiming "wow, a hottie". Either way, I don't like it when looks get in the way of profession or creativity.

"If the person were male I doubt people would be claiming "wow, a hottie"."

that^ statement is sexist. you're applying a generalization to a gender.

God I hope you really were being facetious.

calling someone a hottie isn't sexist in any way shape or form. it makes no reference to gender, 'hottie' being a gender neutral colloquialism. it is merely a subjective assessment of someones attractiveness which may come from members of either sex. so in labeling krikkit's comment sexist, you are revealing your sexist assumption about krikkit's gender.

anyways, allie is one of my favorite humans and i'd love this video even if it were only half as good as it is. she could use a bit of practice doing live bits, mostly just working on diction and such. i can see how this vid wouldn't be as funny or endearing to those who haven't read her blog from start to finish.

to the haters: hey, where's your funny internet video? oh right, you don't have even one of them, or a blog that pays your bills. you're obviously qualified to rub stink on anything that doesn't meet your lofty standards.

one last thing - anyone else notice that allie both looks and sounds like Emma Caulfield aka Anya from Buffy?

allie is younger of course but the resemblance is pretty amazing. even the awkward 'captain obvious' over-clarification is there.

nutbastard, you're so lame. see why below:

to the haters:
(i didn't say i hated it, it's just not funny)

hey, where's your funny internet video?
(like i said that video wasn't funny)

oh right, you don't have even one of them, or a blog that pays your bills.
(how can you be so sure? anyway, I also have a job that pays gazillions more that having a blog, trust me)

you're obviously qualified to rub stink on anything that doesn't meet your lofty standards.
(just like you're qualified to say the video is awesome)

sorry nutsy

Video is classic HaaH humor, which many of us love but some people will never get. I could just as easily picture all this done in her inimitable cartoon style. But now I can't stop pondering why she cartoons herself as such a completely different person. In the vid she seems nothing like the painfully-shy, uber-awkward, square-bodied, lazy-eyed, pee-in-her-pants-nervous wreck that she portrays herself to be in her drawings. In the vid she seems confident, in charge, and simply beautiful.
If I was going to cartoon myself, I'd make myself a foot taller, broader shouldered, and have a cape. Yet she does the opposite... Fascinating....

Nice!
So glad she pointed out that the coat I'd be wearing would be my coat and not the one she had. That sure cleared up a lot of confusion! ;)
