I knew I liked Randall Munroe

Once again, XKCD warms my humorless feminist heart with a new comic titled, “How It Works.”

How It Works

Precisely. You know you’re a member of an oppressed group if people think they can extrapolate from your actions or qualities to the entire group.

I feel like everybody must know about by this webcomic now, but that may just be because everyone in my circle of friends is really into it. So, for the uninitiated: XKCD is a hilarious nerdcomic authored by supersmart physicist and, as of a few months ago, fellow Bostonian Randall Munroe. One of the many, many reasons I love it to pieces is that even when it doesn’t deal with explicitly feminist topics, it often portrays female characters who are almost always at least interesting, and sometimes radical badasses, as if it’s the most natural thing in the world. If you’ve been missing this little gem, it’s well worth a bookmark. It’s occasionally artsy, often sweet, and always funny.
