i really don't get the message here....


the message is "Haha what if some webomickers bought Anita Sarkeesian as a sex slave, wouldn't that be WACKY??? Hahaha I don't like any of these people so I'm going to draw nonrepresentational caricatures of them doing objectionable things! Hahaha I'm so clever!"



so.........not some analysis of the role of japanese imperialism in wwii enabling the maoist rebellion and the relationship between anime and web cartoons?

i didn't actually recognize that as anita sarkeesian. for a moment there i misread that as 'kardashian' which would certainly justify putting her in a box. but then i was trying to figure out if there was something about china and it's near-slavery factory worker conditions replacing japan as the main exporter of cheap goods and...well, as i said...it just confuses me.

you say that as though you expect the Shredded Moose guy to actually know history

hahahahaha, the same site that whines about sinfest also hates that moose whatever webcomic (nsfw)

eat your own eat your own nom nom nom



the shittywebcomics guys' hate for Shredded Moose was just overshadowed by the way that the idea of us responding to that comic amused them, I think

well, it just seemed like such a complex message, full of highly symbolic things. sort of like a political cartoon.

granted, a lot of those are pretty stupid....

yes, shredded moose is well-known for its subtlety and complex political insight

for example, Anita Sarkeesian's ass is representative of western imperialism after the fall of the ottoman empire

the child rape in Weapon Brown is representative of the philosophical concept of authenticity and the vertiginous experience of absolute freedom

can't get classier than that

Why do you read things that are that inane?

I'm including shittywebcomics and whoever makes that badly written comic.

their new "essay mod" is actually a lot better than that trolling dipnizzle with the "8-}" emotes and the constant intentional misinterpretations, by the way

which is the person this thread was originally about

so

yeah

Is no one going to talk about the fact that the representation ot Tat looks hella racist? Like WW2 propaganda level of bad racial caricature?

I didn't recognise that as being Anita either.

Mostly I just roll my eyes at this though. Yeah dude, I'm sure Tat is going to be super sad that you don't approve of the direction his webcomic took. He's gonna turn the whole thing back into a hole of racism and misogyny, just for you.

although the vocal few that ragequit the comic over recent politics -- and the Shredded Moose shitbros that don't have a goal beyond making a shit comic about jerks -- might disagree, shittywebcomics' actual position is that Sinfest has always been terrible

I thought that was implied when I compared it to drawing a bulbous stick figure sitting in poo? Of course that infantile level of caricature is going to add racist features if it can.

of course not
unlike the other characters, she is only labeled with hoop earrings and quantities of money

she doesn't get a "Hello, I am {name} and I {do X horrible thing}!" bubble

No, I wouldn't be able to see your eyes. I dissected the comic so much my own eyes self-terminated in protest.
