Is the title "GirlsAskGuys" sexist?

Does it imply that women are the needy, inferior sex and that men are the ones with all the answers?

I'm not saying it does or it doesn't. Just wanted to see what you guys thought.

Update: God, some of you people are mean.

If someone heard of a website called "GirlsAskGuys" and didn't know about the logo, they'd have a valid reason for wondering why it's phrased the way it is.

  • i believe they did it because it's easier 2 pronounce "girlsaskguys" than "guysaskgirls" basically...;-)

  • I did feel like it put too much emphasis on physical sex rather than the qualities of the people, but I didn't feel that it makes females seem inferior.

    • Nope, "ladies first" is quite chivalrous.

    • Show All
    • Wait, why not? Doesn't it goes against "hurr durr strong womyn" and stuff?

    • it is, but that's still better than how you can restrict an entire sex from responding :P

  • no. because when you look at the logo, it's arrows pointing from guys to girls which could be interrupted as guys ask girls or guys answer the question. the arrows are pointing at each other so both are asking and answering each other. I think the logo does that both needs each other

  • GirlsAskGuysandGuysAskGirls is too long of a title. And it would be the same thing if it was GuysaskGirls. plus girls in the title first rolls off the tongue better

  • Of course not, that's really stretching for something to be offended about. One or the other is going to be listed first.

  • I find it hilarious that girls need to ask guys questions about their attractions and stuff. As if there's some secret unspoken thing that attracts a male to a female

  • The arrows going around already establish that both sexes are asking each other. I don't see how that's possibly sexist.

  • No. Not even.

    But it is trapped in the gender binary.

    • I think the only thing stuck in gender binary is the idea of "gender" as something independent of one's sex.

      I mean really, this whole "gender fluid" and "trans" thing is literally saying "how much you align with the other end of the gender binary"

      I think the "spectrum" shouldn't exist in the first place even as a concept

  • I think they did it because the only other option was "GirlsExchangeQuestionsAndAnswersWithGuys"

    They didn't go with that one for obvious reasons...

  • No, I don't personally think so. It can be read both ways which is why there are arrows in the logo. But I do understand how people who have never heard of the site before and haven't seen the logo, may think that it's just a site for girls to ask questions to guys. However, as I said before, the arrows indicate that it can go both ways :)

  • I don't think it's sexist at all. It's just a name. There's a little arrow to in the logo implying it can be the other way around too. Besides... I don't even care if it's about girls asking guys or whatever else.

  • No. Phonetically it sounds smoother than the other way around. Also you can tell from the logo that it goes both ways.
