I don't think he's sexist. He's just a dick. It's debatable whether he told her to get the beer because he thinks women are less than men and should or because he's just a dick. I think it's more likely he's just a dick, not sexist.

That's not cool it's just being a fuckin dick. You don't yell at your girlfriend to do things for you. It's called respect, treat your girlfriend the right way and she won't leave your sorry ass.

235: "Epitome" means "a typical or ideal example; embodiment." -webster.com If you'd taken just a few seconds to look that up, you could have avoided making yourself look like an idiot.

#246 - terribly sorry. In my dictionary it says epitome is 'something standard' and I took that to be 'standard' being similar to 'average'. I probably should have looked further into it.

His point is that there would be some crazy people that would say the guy should get it for her and be a gentleman. Just like there's some crazy people now who chose "I agree, your life sucks." I think most people would agree that if the genders were switched here, and OP was a woman, we'd be calling her a bitch instead of calling OP a dick. I generally make the same point as 65, but I think you're wrong on this one, 65.

Ok Hypothetical FML I yelled at my man for some cash to go shopping in front of my friends. He straight up said no and slapped me down for it. FML I tried to make them roughly equivalent. What do you think the FML responses would be? The vast majority and top rated votes "bitch you got what you deserved. Hope he slaps you one for me" or more "please OP, get out of that abusive relationships!". Do you think there is a sizable difference between the two? I am genuinely curious.

The girlfriend shouldn't have responded with violence, because that is technically abuse. Even if her boyfriend was belittling her and stuff, she could've just put her foot down or walked out. Four beer bottles - empty or not - can do a lot of damage, and it's not behaviour to be encouraged in either gender.

Except throwing a can of beer at someone is the same as slapping them down. You can dodge or catch a can. Not so much a slap. Not much the same. I throw things at my friends, it isn't abuse. If I hit on of them, then yes. That's be abuse.

I can see what you're saying about throwing things at friends, but aren't those usually objects that won't hurt too much if they don't catch/dodge? And they usually know it's coming and not at their head? But the FML reads like there was a definite intention to physically hurt the OP for a derogatory comment, which is a certainly a bit extreme, even if it's not classed as abuse. Also, if the situation was reversed I think it would be counted as unacceptable, therefore it's unacceptable here.

#176 Those are not equivalent at all. If it said he threw the money at her, I'd say she deserved it. Also, he specifically said he did it to be cool - showing off by ordering his girlfriend around. The OP readily admitted thinking that makes him cool. Sexism IS by definition not equivalent when you simply reverse the situation. There are no stereotypes that men should wait on women. Men weren't in a position where they were expected to do so for hundreds of years.

211, Are you saying if a guy throws bottles of beer at his girlfriends head it isn't abuse? You don't have any idea what you're talking about do you? 119, The FML community is full of idiots, so I doubt they'd even be able to identify one anyway. Anyone who thinks FML comments aren't generally bullshit is more likely than not a part of the problem...

Whoop whoop for op gf. I'm a guy and if I told my gf that she'd tell me to fuck off in front of everyone and you know what, I'd totally deserve it. Yours was just more creative.

#161: coming from the moron who can't even detect a joke on the internet. All you people yelling at Flockz are idiots who need to learn how to tell when people are joking. I assume you idiots can't detect sarcasm either..
