Shouldn't she be in your lineup of bouncing gremlins, then? ;-)


Well, I've already mentioned a couple times a while back that I swore it was the last time I updated that thing. Although I guess.... Maybe eventually I'll change my mind. I don't know. Maybe once she gets an official color-scheme, I guess. We'll see.

The little off comments the Matrix is making made me chuckle.

I still can't decide the actual age of the girl with the glasses. Is she a young child, or an older black man? I can't decide.


She's a little girl. that's what the Matriarchy says.

This is like the opposite of the old feminazi strips. Which are actually more accurate. The problem isn't misogyny, it's misandry. Which my spellcheck doesn't recognize as a word. And, very much like in this strip, once you realize how bad it is it's like an awakening from the Matrix.


You are just precious.

I'm just not liking this arc. Seems like it comes out of left field compared to his normal work. Sinfest IS a webcomic afterall & comics at heart are to entertain. Yes Tat manages to pass a message along with some of his strips but even those entertain. All this arc seems to do is just preach & be very one sided. Which is not entertaining at all.

What happened? Why did Tat suddenly decide to indulge in self hatred & get all preachy? The comic used to be funny. Now I feel like I'm on a man hater's site & bein sermoned.


P.S. The Matrix-esque of it just comes off heavy handed & rip offish.

It's all tongue-in-cheek humor. The beliefs of any extremist are going to be full of flaws.

Panel 5 -- it's sexist to assume "sit on my face" has anything to do with men at all.

Also, did you laugh at all the strips where men were the resistance and the women were Nazi-like totalitarian dictators?

This is pretty much the opposite of that.

Since we've addressed your signature bar, I'd like to ask who those last few people are right of Tat and his pets?

Poor Slick. The last thing he needs is Nique becoming even more sensitive to macho attitudes. Sad

Why is "dress code" under the work one? Last time I checked dress codes applies both to men and women.

I did laugh that "sugar tits" was written next to 'nique.

Here and there, you see where a dress code keeps women in clothes that are strictly feminine in nature -- I heard once where it's a rule of etiquette that women where skirts when appearing before the Supreme Court.

The Tat fanboy, a previously seen member of the sisterhood, Amber of the Call me arc, and the nurse from the heartbreaker arc.

Amber and the nurse are awfully obscure. Perhaps you could draw a, er, Highlander-style duel between them at some point, and include this new character in one of their places.
