Here's another link to it. Unfortunately, Ryan was pressured into taking this great conversation down by some (otherwise) respectable people who perceived gender bias in it.

I wonder if those people have considered that the gender bias is their own. That conversation was just an event that happened--events don't have biases, people do. Was his wife offended by her own questions, or Ryan's answers??

I took the gif down, it was a bit much anyhow... I think I found a new 50 gifs for any situation page or something that day =)
