Thursday night, Hillary Clinton officially became the first female in American history to become the presidential nominee of a major political party. It was a historic night for women in politics, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, the gross men of social media were out in full force to ruin it all.

During her historic speech, Hillary was inundated with tweets from dudes commenting on—what else?—her smile. Seriously, guys?

Political and foreign policy blogger Steve Clemons offered up this critique of Hillary's speech, suggesting that she should've smiled more.

Thankfully, Clemons later saw the error in his ways and apologized.

Other men weren't so apologetic about their blatant sexism, like this guy. It wasn't Hillary's economic plan or foreign policy ideas that he found "sickening." He chose to focus on the more pressing issues instead.

How dare she wave and smile after she was just nominated for president?

This guy summed it up best.

Well, joke's on them, because our girl Hill is on her way to becoming the most powerful person in the world. Sorry, guys.
