Internet Just Missed The Point On This Awesome Women’s Web Series

girls are assholes

YouTube

If you haven’t seen the new YouTube series from NoKat Comedy then you’re seriously missing out. The premise is basically “bitches be crazy,” and they are written, directed and starring women. What’s not to love?

Of course, as with anything awesome, the series has its detractors. Sites like Jezebel and Handbag.com were NOT amused, Jez calling the series “unrelateable,” and Handbag said it was “plain not funny.” WUT? The videos are obviously meant to be a satirical statement on how people perceive women, how can people miss that?

The first video had two women eating lunch together, while having a passive aggressive battle on who can order the least. Because women are competitive assholes who love to eat, amirite? The second shows two women at a bar getting hit by two dudes. The first guy is played actor who seems to be doing his best Seth Rogan impression, the second is that same guy dressed up like Michael Douglas in Wall Street. The first dude is supposed to represent the typical “Nice Guy” that us d-bag ladies always reject. The second is the stereotypical “bad boy” that we ALL love. I think you know who she chooses. 

Honestly, maybe I’m reading these all wrong, but I think the point was to poke fun at how MRA type assholes see women, NOT to reinforce those ideas. In the second video, the douchebag guy is so obviously rapey and skeezy, there’s no way it’s not meant to be hyperbolic. And the “Nice Guy” gets maced. Who doesn’t want to see that? Check out the video below, and judge for yourself. I’m going to go buy a Costo-sized box of popcorn for when NoKat releases more of these babies.

    You’re 100% spot on, Frances. When I saw this, I was thinking “eat your heart out, MRA.”

    Saw the videos a few days ago and loved them! I’m pretty sure it isn’t the same actor playing the two guys though…
