Man... can we even stratify misogyny? Or will misogyny always be misogyny?

Also, let's try not to blow this thread up, mmm-kay? Play nice, people.

B-but I love Granny's Cream of Misogyny... That old-style flavor never gets old (for the lack of a better term).

Never came to my mind that some idiots might actually think like that. But now that its out of the box... of course there are some. There's always some heroes who seek for the next most comfortable compromise to justify their behavior. This way its win-win. They don't even need to change anything and still look progressive.
Not to mention, that this has not much to do with third-wave-feminism.

Dude, I think it's been out of the box for quite some time now, especially in these forums. I specifically remember this one guy who said he was a feminist to be able to "understand" women... but he still ain't getting any.

Now Curly's doing what some of the commentators around here do: setting herself up to evaluate who is and isn't a feminist.

Curly is also (1) an imperfect individual who should no more be expected to be correct all the time than Squig or Slick or any other character and (2) non-existent except within the parameters that Tat and we the readers concur upon and thus holds no opinions whatsoever except those that Tat gives to her, just as he gives opinions to Squig or The Devil or any other character.

'Cause some commentators seem to lose sight of that part.

Hahaha, this page was freaking hilarious! I swear, Squig playing foil to this girl in his own way is just perfect. I don't know whether the last line or the "I"..."Am a feminist" ... "No you're not" line was better.

Though I think we can agree that while it's hard to sometimes decide who IS and isn't a feminist, I don't think Squig is one by any means. Slick is more likely to be a feminist than Squig. xD Unless he's stoned, and then he might decide everybody should just get along. (Probably to an orgy, but whatever...details. =P)

What word, foil? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foil_(literature) *edit* It does NOT want to include that last section within the Parentheses in the url no matter what I do...so you'll have to copy it if you want to follow that link. LOL

Yeah, I've tried to find a work around for that wiki problem myself.

I'm not sure I like either "foil" or "perfect."

"Foil"
I don't think Squig is a foil to her because we are learning about HIM, not her; the sister has not said more than a few words this whole time. He is not flushing out her character. This exchange has not even told us what wave the Sister is. It's implied that she is probably thirdwave, but certainly we have gotten no confirmation of that from her. She is just sitting there as implacable as ever, correcting his obvious mistakes with stoic resolution. I am learning nothing about her.

"Perfect"
Squig is -at his heart- a strawman. Yes, I know, some real people out there are exactly like him. But, he is as much a cardboard cut out as a Fundie is of religion. Don't get me wrong, I love him to death, but it's simply not fair to have him propped up as some kind of representative of anything. Simply point, he is stupid. Additionally -for whatever reason- he WANTS to change. Why does he keep coming back and trying to convince this stern women he is good? Why not simply write her off as some crazy and move on. I don't go around trying to win the approval of every street preacher I meet, that's for sure. He is genuinely TRYING in these comics to care. I can't even see the group he is a meant to represent doing that.

As such, I don't feel that Squig is either of those things. The comic itself is good, but I'm not getting any kind of message from it.


It's just a comic about a stupid guy trying to impress a dour woman.
