I love that little detail in the last panel - Tat's author avatar showing up in the assembly line. It's funny.

Normally, the feminist ones either have a lame joke or no joke at all. This is one of the rare ones that dealt with feminism that actually brought a smile of mirth to my face.

I still dunno why Tat keeps preaching that Patriarchy breeds misogyny.

For me, the answer is simple: the Internet.

I love this one, especially the self insert.

And man, this thread is going to blow up. Tat loves dem forum drama.

I will start, misogyny existed long before the internet arrived.

I don't think anonymity has much at all to do with the general nastiness of some parts of internet culture, no. It's just a shitty culture.
.
And there are many, many people who act like that in real life, too

I've also been calling her Minique. I'm hoping to see a Mini Slick.

Wrong solution.

Slick is already rather mini, though.

A mini-Slick would be like... an infant, man... I don't think Slick's ready to be raisin' babies just yet...

Preach preach preach.

I wouldn't mind this, and I get that it's a comic, but it's too varied a subject to take such a simplified stance on.

Nobody ever takes, nor should ever take, anybody seriously who simply bleats and whines
"Waaaah, men suck! It's all patriarchy! Waaah!"

Because it's not. Something that doesn't pedestal women is not automatically patriarchy. While I agree there are still large imbalances in western handling of gender equality, I don't think this is such a clear cut thing.

Why? Because even the women can't agree what they want from it. Some are fine being docile house makers and are more than comfortable taking on the traditional submissive roles, others seem to want a return to chivalry without the patriarchal values (which isn't possible, might I add), whilst other still will argue for total equality, even to the point of accepting that, should things become violent at any point in their lives, they will not be allowed to hide behind the fact of their gender, should the aggressor be male.

So if you're going to brand every male in the world as "Oh you're all just patriarchal constructs", take a step back and then silence yourself.

Whoa there, MasMor. Nobody has branded every male in the world as anything. The point of this episode is "There are SO MANY sexist jerks out there, it's as though they're being mass-produced."

Get a frikkin' grip; take a frikkin' breath.

There are many female equivalents.
