The co-CEO of Archie Comics is being sued for gender discrimination after she allegedly stalked her male colleagues and referred to them as "penis" rather than using their actual names.

But Nancy Silberkleit's lawyer says the lawsuit is bogus because white men aren't members of a "protected class," reports the New York Daily News.

The $3.25-million lawsuit by five Archie employees alleges Silberkleit used her "gender as a weapon" by yelling "Penis! Penis! Penis!" during a meeting.

What's more, the plaintiffs allege she used the term for their names regularly, brought Hells Angels to the office to intimidate them, repeatedly made reference to her late husband's handgun and 750 rounds of ammo supposedly kept in the office and stalked employees and their families.

Silberkleit has denied the allegations, calling them "cruel and mean and inaccurate."

The 59-year-old took over the role of co-CEO after her husband's death in 2008.

So it's okay if it's a white guy? I can't believe I'm saying this but as a male white American, I feel discriminated against.

Why would it matter if he was a Jew? That's not a race. Italian's can still be Caucasian (which I guess I should have said instead of white, in this case).

It's related to comics and it's fairly amusing.

Yeah, i would belive people would find this more important that anything else, since if they win it will change the comic book industry.

This has everything I love in a story. The word penis, biker intimidation tactics, fire arms and comic books. I wish Archie would turn this into a comic.

What a ridiculous defense. "White men can't be discriminated against" makes no sense whatsoever... so it will probably hold up well in a United States court

It's true, white men can't get discriminated against since they are all evil, racist rapists of women :] United States court is the best. :]

@edamame: @supernategames: @longbowhunter: @dctv3363: @doomdoomdoom: Its get better guys and girls, Penis and Vaginas

Silberkleit prepares to run for mayor of Rye, N.Y. In an interview, she touts her experience "as a teacher in the public schools system and as a business woman, top-level executive at an American icon, Archie Comics."

She fails to mention that employees have called her a "dictator" who is apparently more threatening to Archie and the gang than Hitler, Ho Chi Minh and Al Qaeda combined.

"While World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan did not stop the publication of Archie Comics," they argue in the complaint. "The war-like attitude and approach of Defendant may destroy Archie Comics unless this Court intervenes."

Here's the reason she acts the way she does. She needs to be fired and deported.

Jewish Co-CEO of Archie Comics

What? What does setting up comic book fairs at schools have to do with bullying or deportation?

@deathpoolthet1000: How did you get that from that link?

Because she say she says she never wanted to be in the bussines in a really cold way.

Many people in the industry didnt wanted to be in the industry, but they arent that cold to the industry they are getting money from.

@cezar_thescribe: You realize half of the most famous people in the comics industry are Jewish right? Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Seigle and Shuster, Bob Kane and Joe Simon all Jewish and none hated America. In fact Simon and Kirby invented the most pro America super hero ever when they made Captain America. Being Jewish has no bearing on this.

I never said they all hate America.

The ones who hate America are mostly Zionists.

She was completely out of line with that third saying of the word Penis. Two was pushing it already, but once you hit three = lawsuit.
