“Sea Lion” Has Been Verbed
My comic from last month about The Terrible Sea Lion has really struck a chord!
It’s been mentioned by the Independent (above), Slate, VentureBeat, Feministe, and cited in a ton of blog posts.
That’s really neat to see! I’m happy that it’s resonated with so many people.
This video I'm watching about #ThatHashtag just referenced sea lioning as a harassment tactic. Looks like we saw the birth of a new word!

"Sea lioning" is already part of the lexicon. Useful term, too. The actual practice has been on the internet since forever.

I just heard the term "sea lioning" used as a verb and I'm choking it's so funny. Holy shit we need to make sure that becomes a thing.

Useful vocabulary terms for the less obvious harassment tactics used against women online. Via http://t.co/KggLqIlgtv pic.twitter.com/JNPgQucWkO

@DiscordianKitty sea lioning is new to me. I wonder if it came from this, or if it inspired it: http://t.co/6UJmzuriA6

There are times I do NOT google words or phrases I see here, 'cause I don't wanna know! Sea Lioning is one of those things.

So I thought this would be fun: for just a week (through October 31 only) I’m making sea lion shirts!
Different colors (and even hoodies) are available too! And a tie-dye shirt because WHY NOT.
Now of course I should note: reasonable people can disagree.
Sealioning? People expect to say something in public and not be challenged on it. Mad.

Sent Sea Lion to a guy who kept commenting despite me saying I didn't want to argue today. He said it didn't apply. http://t.co/KqNEv8vW7Q

Some people are calling the lady in the sea lion comic a SEA LION RACIST and saying she deserves to be challenged and confronted!

Apologies if you've already seen a picture of an elephant saying hello to a sea lion today. pic.twitter.com/78WROc2SpC
