And now you're doing exactly what she thought they were doing and was in turn doing herself.

Oh man, this strip is like a vortex of irony. If it gains any more levels it may very well collapse in on itself.

I remember in one strip it was winter and Monique was bundled up appropriately. She went out and was ignored by pretty much all the men who crossed her path. She promptly went in the house and changed to something less modest and froze not soon after she went outside. It was funny, but thats how she is. This strip seems to be a big contrast from that, and makes me wonder what she wouldve done this time if they ignored her.

Like I said, he went deep with this one. There's lots and lots of interpretation available, including ones supporting that she is right. Personally, I feel there's no way of knowing.

And yes, the irony is thick.

OKAY, THEY'RE ALL STUPID ASSHOLES.

INTERPRETATION OVER.

Right, but that's just one of the three guys. The other two are a bit more of the "nice ass, it'd look good as a trophy" and/or "nice ass I'd hit it." I don't know any girl who gets the attention of an old man that doesn't feel a bit creeped out by it. Again, that's just me and my experience though.

Yeah, old ladies never look at me. I'm thankful for that. Being a guy has its good points, one being that the female gaze is rarely a source of creeped-out discomfort.

I was using that guy because he's the clearest example, but assuming that guy 1 wants her only to satisfy his ego, or that just because guy 3 is older he think about her in terms of reliving his youth...these involve the same kind of assumptions about motivations which go beyond merely being creepy male gaze.

I would say thank christ for that. People aren't stoic enough.

No, no, there's no problem with being meloncholy, depressed and introverted.

Emo is just when you shout out "HEY, GUESS WHAT?! I'M DEPRESSED!" all the time.

I think it's better that that kind of behavior is ostracized.

It's the flip side of vanity, happens in any teen. And in more grown-up one'd like to admit.

And, for the record, it was a litterary genre in the late 18th century, Old way Emo.

I'm not sure it entirely qualifies, but I can see the link. There's some really cool stuff in romanticism, though. Not very modern-emo.

Actually, he's right. People do tend to call you emo if you are being melancholic or depressed.

I've been called emo several times, when I act a bit melancholic or depressed. Or when I got a new haircut. _

Emo is yelling that you're depressed, but other people do get called emo for melancholic introspection and being depressed.

Well, yes, there is always that. And there's always the "hur hur I'm so emo!" people, but I've found most people won't call you "emo" when you act depressed unless they think you're whining. In which case, they're using it as an insult which is kind've the definition anyways.

Of course, there are some people who think acting depressed at all is whining, so I do admit it's a very subjective point.
