What kind of metal are women made of?

Every day, the Daily Dot finds something that people on Facebook are sharing and, in turn, shares it with you—with a little explanation. Here's today's share.

Someone online has discovered a loophole to being a woman:

Fe is the chemical abbreviation for Iron. So Fe + male means that women are really ironmen. Get it?

It’s a silly play on words, but of the many jokes shared by the Facebook group No Hope For the Human Race, this one is the most widely-shared in recent memory, hitting 4,000 shares and more than 6,000 likes.

It has, of course, prompted a highbrow discussion about gender relations.

“ironman batman or superman wouldn't have anything on a woman,” wrote Massiel Ramirez.

“Is the case, then there will have been billions of female iron men, and only one male iron man. But who gets the movies, recognition, money, action figures, and advertising deals? Obviously the billions of females, right??????” asked David Graham.

“Damn cant guys take a fucking joke? Calm down. When you can pop out a kid then we will be equals, otherwise stfu,” responded Tammy Dozier.
