Explain xkcd: It's 'cause you're dumb.

So I don't get whether Randall is being sexist or feminist here, or just making fun of both. The comic itself is pointing out how people use pop-evo-psych to justify their own very convenient entitlement, feminist, but then the title text calls the woman and her mother, stupid in no uncertain terms, so the man wins this one handily anyway. Despite the fact that he really is being mean, first putting her down as inherently inferior, then getting personal. I guess I don't like it when the mean person wins, whatever the gender... -- ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Neither. He equates her mother's problem with maths not geography or sport. (Unless he thinks a quarterback is change from a dollar.)

Someone from Savannah, Georgia, would be more likely not to know about a quarter dollar than about a football quarterback. (When the state quarters first started, I encountered someone in Buford, GA insisting, in all seriousness, that "quarter dollar" on it meant dollar coin; he'd never noticed those same words on the previous design.) 17:24, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Edited a bit. No idea what that "makes no comment on veracity" was about. Also the correct/original form of the Denial joke is "Denial isn't just a river in Egypt". "Denial is a river in Egypt" makes no sense if you think about it. AmbroseChapel (talk) 00:51, 18 September 2017 (UTC)

It just occurred to me that her mother might be named Georgia, which would explain the last line. --Youforgotthisthing (talk) 16:20, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

I live near Atlanta, and I actually read "Savannah" as meaning the city here in Georgia, then had to correct myself...twice. —Kazvorpal (talk) 05:23, 25 October 2019 (UTC)
