The tumblr Congratulations, you have an all-male panel! devotes itself to ironically celebrating these sausage-fests, with the erect thumb of David Hasselhoff plastered over each one in masculine approval.

Great job, Foreign Affairs! Foreign Policy is a white man’s issue.


Excellent work, Games First! I once knew a woman who played video games, but she only did it to seduce nerdy guys, like all women who pretend to enjoy gaming.
