One man has come forward with a lawsuit claiming the female-centric comedian Iliza Shlesinger went too far when she banned male ticket holders from entering her comedy show.

Wait, Shlesingerheld a woman only show where men were banned and only one person has come forward to complain? Where is the outrage at the sexism? If a male comedian had banned women from entering his show it would be all over the mainstream media and that comedian would be ostracized and blacklisted from the industry.
So how is it that a woman can so blatantly flaunt her sexist views without repercussion? Well, that is exactly what George St. George is wondering after he purchased two tickets to Shlesinger's November 13 show "Girls Night with Iliza - No Boys Allowed" but was turned away at the door because he was a male.
St. George said Shlesinger's male ban "repudiated hundreds of years of women’s struggles to be viewed as being equal to men and is typical of old-fashioned sexism that might also advise a young woman that her best chance for a happy life is to ace her home economics class and learn how to make a queso dip from Velveeta to catch a good man."

Exactly how much in damages is being sought by the lawsuit is unknown, and Shlesinger has yet to comment on the lawsuit.
