Ladies Against Humanity Would Be The Card Game's Perfect Expansion

You know what there's a lot of in Cards Against Humanity? Bodily fluid jokes. Know what there aren't many of? Jokes written by ladies (the game's creators are all dudes).

The site Ladies Against Humanity fixes this by offering up their own (and some community-submitted) options. While this could have been licence for a whole bunch of cards that only 50% of any given game will find funny, in truth most are just fantastic cards that you should all be adding to your deck right now.

    Oh, right. I forgot humour has to be gendered, and I am forever locked out of any jokes made by women.

    And here I was, thinking comedy was egalitarian by virtue of it's irreverence and inherent counter-culture tones.

      True enough, but also see that Cards Against Humanity almost completely ignores some aspects of humour.

      Uh, no-one said it did have to be gendered. He specifically says that they're not jokes that can only be enjoyed by half the population.

      On the other hand, one of the paths to humour is mutual recognition of 'truth' or perception thereof. I suspect a woman would have a different/more personal understanding of "knowing why the dog is sniffing your crotch" than a man.

    Pretty funny, already thinking of responses.

    All I really got from this is that you target the women demographic by talking about relationships, clothes, pop music and babies. Or rather anything that they cover in cosmo and woman's day.
    I sort of feel a bit stereotyped rather than included but that's me I guess, I wasn't feeling left out of the 'boys club' to begin with.

      I'm a guy and that's what I got from this.... fairly stupid. Every time we play none of the girls have felt left out and I reckon if you added some of these people would be like... what?

    really... we need to bring gender into this shit now?

    don't get me wrong, some of those cards are good (although many reek of gender politics), I just don't see why you should go out of your way to get women to write them or even begin caring about the official writers genders, humor varies more from person to person then it does from gender to gender.

      And mention Ryan gosling, herp derp. Kotaku badly white knighting again.

        You keep using that word...

      Having played with all but the most recent expansion, a lot, I can confidently say that there's a distinctly different flavour. Given the preponderance of menstrual jokes and self-conscious, self-deprecating jabs at stereotypes about women (the ryan gosling, jennifer lawrence love, for example), I'd say there's a fairly decent chance that the difference in gender and life experience is the primary cause of the difference in humour.

      Do all men/women find x/y funny? No. But humour spawns from experience, and gender is something you, generally speaking, can't help but experience.

    There's a few guys I know that would love to have Ryan Goslings taint. They know who they are.

    We can't even buy this game in Australia anyway right?

      But you can totally download and print that shit out.

        Then id Need to setup my printer and ugh

      Tbh I just play the online version here; http://pyx-1.socialgamer.net/game.jsp

        I think they've actually added these cards in there as well... I'm sure I remember something about Ryan Goslings taint.

    The one about the baby is pretty sick. Also, none of these are funny.

    The answers seem meh but the questions would work well with current answers, "big black dick" can work with any question
