Gender Communication in Schools
This comic was made to shows that in schools, male student are more likely to be reprimanded or punished than their female classmates, even when both are punishable. In the comic, Austin is shown to have dyed hair, a dress code violation, while another of his classmates named Shalisa has dyed hair as well. Austin's teacher Ms. B reprimands him for having dyed hair and tells him to report to the principal. Austin points out the fact that Shalisa also has dyed hair, but his statement is not taken into consideration. Even though both Austin and Shalisa are both violating the dress code, only Austin is punished. This shows the unconscious bias that is prevalent in schools.
In schools, male student get reprimanded more often than female students.

That's unfair Ms. B, Shalisa's hair is dyed too.
Oh man, that sucks... I hope my pops doesn't kill me.
