Or, maybe that, contrary to popular stereotype, feminists do have a sense of humor and are even capable of poking fun at themselves if they're with someone who's not a true jackass who is going to take the joke at face value and try to tear them down with it.

Again, before the popcorn pops, I still think they're just goofing off. Even the "Kill all men". I think god it satirizing them, and they're in on the joke and rolling with it. And rock on to 'em for it. You should be able to laugh at yourself.
(For those that question, one argument for my conclusion is their relaxed and happy positioning. They're laughing and amused, fist pump and all.)

not sure if i agree, but thanks! when you quoted lil sis it reminded me of where i had heard that phrase before.
also after way too much overanalyzing i now really want a Nana backstory. somehow it feels like her opinions and past experience would fit in quite well at this point.

I seriously missed God. I'm glad he's more light-hearted about heckler's then Monique is. Then again if he wasn't, Lil'E would have been toast years ago. Being invincible probably helps.

it's just a slightly modified Jesus quote

just because the quote itself is revealing of what Christianity's really about doesn't mean it's particularly meaningful here

Quote:

I think that we all can agree that the little one is a strawman for extremist feminism at this point.

Well, yeah, that or someone taking things overboard in an attempt to fit in, probably saying things with some irony; remember when Crim was in that same spot?

I certainly hope so, and you never know! Even though we're only a couple of days in, week has been the best in ages. Although I appreciate (to an extent) that he's been looking at some serious social issues with his recent strips, it's nice to have some just plain silly ones now and again Laughing

Anyone else here heard the song "Feminists don't have a sense of humor"?

i guess sisterhood member #3 (does she have an unofficial name yet?) really is crim's counterpart in the sense that crim is the levelheaded one of his trio so she's the nut

i love how god just rolls with it though

I suggested Kelly once, but I don't think it really caught on?

It's always nice to see the Sisterhood lightening up, and not taking themselves so seriously.

At first they were so... stoic.

I found it hard to like them. But as Tat continues with this sort of thing, they seem more human and more likeable, whether one agrees with them or not.

Unless there is actually some serious intent to kill all men. In which case the proud douchebags should probably obtain firearms and go hide in bunkers in preparation for the fempocalypse.

I don't see the confusion. In the sinfest universe god pretty much always mocks the concerns and fears of mortals. He doesn't do it to be a dick but because desspite how wrapped up in our own problems we are, he is able to see that on a universal scale our problems amount to just shy of total irrelavance.
