Looking for that piece about reversing gender cliches in comic art

Is that piece where female characters were drawn in cliche male poses and male characters were drawn in cliche female poses still on the web?

While I was looking for it, I found this essay, a history of how gender has been drawn in comics and funnies-- I'd seen the older beautiful woman and goofy-looking man combination before, but never thought about it. The author of the essay just has it as a mystery for why, for quite some decades, this was a standard thing in comics drawn by men.

Addendum:The link I was looking for, thanks to pyrzqxgl.
