ok - must admit, hadn't thought it through.

so i'm voting 'dick detector' is for "people acting like dicks".....which admittedly in sinfest is pretty much male people.

but i'm still sticking by my opinion that tat isn't addressing trans issues because he doesn't feel confident in his knowledge/ability to address them properly. i think if he were genuinely transphobic, we would still get the occasional strip where transgender is treated as the setup or punchline to a joke.

i could be wrong.

Learning to appreciate an artist's output and learning that he probably hates you isn't too pleasant, is it.

I know the writer of the IT Crowd/Father Ted is basically a quiet terf, though hopefully the fact that some big terfs have been saying anti-abortion things means he might take a look at his politics.

I still like the shows, I just don't want to buy things which support him.

like the whole thing with feminism is about choice, and not choosing for others


No, that's inane. Feminism is about eliminating the oppression of women and girls. Sarah Palin, Phyllis Schlafly, Michele Bachmann, Christina Hoff Sommers, the "Honey Badgers" and an endless parade of other right wing women have made choices that result in women and girls facing more violence, more trafficking, more vulnerability, more oppression. "Choice" is not the metric, and most choices aren't feminist ones, particularly the ones available in a patriarchal society. But sloganeering is way easier than actual practice of feminist theory.

I can't figure out what tiny little box this new terminology is supposed to be about
