Isn't this at odds with the Sisterhood of the Patriarchy arc? Trike and her allies seems to eschew traditional views of femininity as being part of the Patriarchy, and the last panel definitely falls under the traditional views of femininity.

While the CONCEPT of the Sisterhood could easily be seen as originating with these strips, their M.O. is quite different. The Patriarchy-era Sisterhood certainly doesn't go around ridiculing dudebros by forcing them to play dress-up.


It's been a few years in the interim. Obviously they've changed tactics since then.

I just think Tats didn't have the idea of the Sisterhood then as they are now and retconned things for his convenience. Also this was waaay back when this strip had a lighter touch.

Tender Loving Care. We use it to mean care and attention... Like "this house needs a little TLC," or "this park could really use some TLC."

It's not used very often around where I live, though. I've seen/heard it at least ten times in media but only heard it once (spelled out as T-L-C, I've heard it a lot more as a phrase) in real life.

Maybe they're different Sisterhoods.

Of course, gender-bending poor annoyed Seymour there could, indeed, be an interesting tactic by the current in-vogue Sisterhood. Though really, it's more the sort of thing that another group I can think of would do...

Shocked

...

... I have to wonder how the current Sisterhood would react to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence or the Radical Faeries, actually. Shocked

Odd how the last three alien visitors all kind of look alike.

Their antenna are different. Orphantron has small round bulbs at ends, Coruptron are thicker & droop, Uranus are narrow & erect. Plus Uranus aliens are as tall as Gay Guy where the others are Slick sized. So they not look alike at all.
