Allow me to train you in the art of professional wrestling


Yes... wrestling... big, burly, hairy, sweaty men, their bodies lightly clad in tight briefs or body-hugging spandex unitards... or Greek-style... writhing aggressively together, groaning, moaning... until one of them ... submits...


Heeeeey, are you subtly implying that my and my old brothers in the fine profession of professional wrestling were in it because we had repressed homosexual urges? Not to mention, its not the submitting that gave the most...satisfaction. It was pinning down squirming youg men at their physical peak that was my favorite.

I have no clue as to where you might be getting this from.

I am just doing a public service by making sure they are protected at all times. Considering this is a typicl scene from the life I have lived, I hope you can understand the sentiment:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Etotg3S3BeI

On the one hand, yes we were (God its been a long time, nearly 30 years, of course it was just long enough for my wife to get used to me looking like a wrestler and note to all you young people, heavy work outs at the age of 58 SUCK) extremely muscular burly men in tight tights. On the other hand, goddammit we kicked so much ass (this was back in the day before the fact it was fake really got out, so 1- we actually had to hit each other pretty hard to keep up the facade and 2- had to deal with dumbass punks picking fights in bars).

This is what Iskandar's man camp means for you, Ktern and Dogen: Muscles, Manliness, Martial Arts, Massive Meals of Meat AND MISS MAGENTA!

In short, prepared for a concentrated dose of pure America. to the spleen.

on a side note, could someone please pass a hint to my wife that I'm 58 now and that its asking a bit much to expect me to keep up my old wrestling level of fitness?

is that "protein bar" made of an angry texas longhorn that you killed yourself with nothing but your skull (bare hands are for SISSIES!)? No, did not think so. Man camp starts in three days.

yes, but he could kick even more ass after attending the man camp of manliness. I do not discriminate upon sexual preference, the greeks kicked a ton of ass too and Lincoln was most likely bisexual if not gay. He too went to my man camp. To make sure what Ktern and Dogen are going to experience, here is a short syllabus:

Day 1:
Short lesson on Theodore Roosevelt.
Bear Wrestling.
Gorilla Wrestling.
Bearilla Wrestling.
Lunch (the bear)
Meditation
Learning that just because the class says meditation does not mean one should drop their guard.
Gorilla Wrestling II The Reckoning.
Dinner (angry texas longhorn).

Day 2:
Short lesson on Abraham Lincoln
Meeting zombie lincoln
Trying to last more than 30 seconds in the ring of honor with zombie lincoln
Failing
Learning that failure is not unmanly.
Shotgun and zombie killing lessons.
Zombie Lincoln Round two (the guy steals all my stove pipe hats).
Lunch: Salad
Learning to complain when given salad and demanding meat.
Real lunch: steak fried steak with steak fries and a seltzer water.
Weight lifting (guess who gets to help me move concrete for a containing wall?)
Dinner: a free skydive into the middle of the serengetti with nothing but a toothpick.

Day 3:
Learn to survive in the serengetti until such time as I get bored fighting elephants and come to get you.

Day 4:
Learning that death is no excuse to not finish the fight with the lion that just killed you.

In short: not only will you have committed wanton acts of mass cruelty against animals, you will have also sent your cholesterol through the roof and given the mercy of the grave back to one of our finest presidents. And then gotten eaten by a lion. In short, you will be a real man.

For what it's worth:

I also closely identify with a 'femme' lifestyle. At first, upon learning about Monique's new 'do, I did feel a twinge of sadness. Part of Monique's charm as It Girl was the balance between her sexuality, confidence, and self-satisfaction. Somehow, androgyny does seem like a rejection of femininity, and I don't like to really attach a negative stigma to femininity or any gender performance in general. But personal feelings about the expression of femininity aside, Tat has showed us a character who has struggled with various aspects of patriarchy and is seeking to deconstruct the notion of gender by altering her appearance. Monique's guilt sometimes frustrates me. I've found it troublesome that Monique somehow felt guilt for tempting other men into Hell, although the idea of her appeal being such that even Big D wanted to employ her was amusing.

I think there's room for other manifestations of a young feminist's approach to the patriarchy. There are a lot of women in this comic, old and young, that we're revisiting and beginning to meet and getting to know better. Hopefully along with that, Tat will present us with a more full portrait of feminism.

Man camp? Sounds boring. If it's not coed, I'm not going. Plus I don't really give a shit about manliness... impressing other men is pretty low on my list of priorities. Good luck with that, though!

translation: dear zombie lincoln, I sit upon the y chromosome so bountifully granted to me through the grace of my one true savior, theodore "sex, steak and manifest destiny" roosevelt. please come to my house and drag em kicking and screaming to a place wherein I may embrace such a bounty.

No it cannot be, any manlier and it would create a vortex in the time-man continuum!

On top of that, the hetero vibe of the strip is being forcibly converted into the metro/homo/pseudo-pro-bono sexuality of the current political clime, which, by the way, is on the verge of being mowed down by a mighty swing of the societal pendulum


Metrosexual? Didn't see any of the men put on makeup, or use moisturizer, male products, wax/shave/laser any unsightly hair off themselves, nor put on eyeliner etc. More significantly, I don't see any male Sinfest character going for a manicure/pedicure!!!

Homosexual? - So you say you're a feminist but are protesting the fact that homosexuals are prominently presented in the more recent strips? Feminists and homo/transsexuals tend to be really sympathetic to each other's plight.

Pseudo-pro-bono? - Is that a bad thing? I'm sure your everyday heroes do stuff pro-bono. I, my significant others, friends and family have certainly have done stuff that can be considered pro-bono.

Also, why do you say 'pro-bono sexuality'? A quick google search tells me that there is no such thing as 'pro-bono sexuality', unless you mean pro-bono sexual advice.
_______________________

I don't think you know what you're talking about, or are even reading the strip correctly.

So what is wrong with a homosexual angle on the comic? It's actually *really* refreshing that he's talking about a marginalized group of people who aren't hurting anybody

*shrugs* Go on, insult me like you insulted everyone else, why don't you. I'm a female, and a feminist myself, and I think you have no idea what you are talking about in that quote.
