OK. so I read the 3rd and 4th speech bubbles as "Freedom FROM you", which considering what these characters represent, is ironic as heck.

To be fair, dressing as his estranged wife for his birthday is really bad taste.

yeah but they're not handcuffed to anything. at that point it's basically a fashion statement.

Oh, wait, given everything else, I'm going to guess that the whole BDSM imagery combined with "freedom for you" etc. is another mocking swipe at the notion that one can have agency and freely choose BDSM. I hate feeling like this is part of Tat's thing here, but the last few weeks of Johnbies parroting phrases about agency and choice incline me to suspect this.

I prefer to see this as a really emotional strip with a very nice paneling layout, but you might be right.

Also, I am really liking Bondage as a character! She has some really nice expressions and it's cute, although misguided, that she thought dressing up as Liberty and trying to act like her would cheer Sam up.

It might also be a nod to many philosophies, some sufis and zen comes to mind, stating one is not even aware that one isn't free. It wouldn't be the first time the comic goes that way.

Or, given recent events, it might be me projecting and speaking out of my ass.

Might also just be a political allegory for how the US likes to champion "Freedom!" but a lot of the time, it's empty rhetoric, or the binds are invisible.

I wish I could just assume the best about Tat's intentions the way I did before. This whole situation has been depressing me.

It is rather depressing. Lib left Sam and he has somebody beside him how looks like her (beside that both of the Girls are not good for him) and reminds him allways about her.

I mean the situation with Tat and his apparent attitude toward things, and toward us on the boards who don't agree with everything (mainly SWERF and TERF stuff), depresses me.
