And there is the problem, right there. There is not anything anyone can do that someone, somewhere, will not find to be the most erotic thing ever.
Dress up, dress down, lose weight, gain weight, wear makeup, don't shave, it does not matter. Someone out there will get off to it.

Which--really--leads to only one conclusion:
If people really want to not give a fuck about what others think, then they have to simply not give a fuck about what others think.


Loudly proclaiming you don't give a fuck is simply another way of giving fucks.

Arrow A note on polite deportment: While one may or may not give fucks, to loudly proclaim ones propensity is never appropriate, not even in the most intimate situation. Wink

Does anyone remember Nique expressing same-sex attraction before? If it happened I don't remember.

Ehh... Hard to say? She's made statements that would imply that she's attracted to females as well but who the fuck knows how genuine said statements are.





There's also the strip that Ronald linked, wherein she asked for a girl's number...

I feel like there's more but I'm not going to bother searching for more. \(0_0)/

I don't think blushing when someone calls you sexy like that is much of an indicator of any actual attraction

also my impression of the other comics was that she was making fun of Slick

Entirely possible, there isn't even a sliver of doubt. That's always the impression I got, honestly, but.

At the same time, like. If Nique really did get together with another girl at any point in time, I feel like no one really should be surprised.

While I think they would be really, really cute together, I wouldn't like the implication that Nique would never have a respectful, healthy relationship with a man: She would have been a c**kteaser for ages until she got tired of being seen as a sex object and went to reject the male half of Humanity.

Again, I'm OK with lesbian couples among main characters, Nique included, but I wouldn't like the 180 change from boy-crazed slutty c**kteasing Nique to androgynous feminist man-hating lesbian Nique, both are stereotypes. I would like it better if there were some women who were conficent, have self-respect and are still able to keep romantic, mutually respecful, healthy relationships with men (poor Fyoosh still has to work some self-respect issues before being there...).

I'm sure I have somehow offended somebody, so I'm going to retreat back to my lurker cave before the lapidation starts... Neutral

I once knew a girl like that. She was part of my (now former) group. Fun fact: every saturday you could her saying "we've being in this club for about two hours and no guy has tried to hit on me. Geez, I'm the only one of my friends without a boyfriend".

Too bad he isn't here.

While 180% doesn't make sense in terms of a proportion out of an immutable whole, in terms of an increase it could be translated as "nearly tripled," and it would also make sense as a new value measured proportionately to the original.
No math nazi necessary there. soz.

There could be a problem with implicitly saying that there is an enumerable scale that has values ranging from slutty cocktease to androgynous feminist, but that doesn't really bother me either. If I were to comment on the post in question, I'd probably be thinking more about criticising the storytelling value of what Inkmonkey is suggesting, or maybe complaining about their description of 'Nique's characterization.

/I might be the math nazi around here, I dunno

I figure Nique is a 1 or maybe even a 2 on the Kinsey scale. So mostly heterosexual, but capable of falling for a girl if the right one comes along. If she suddenly became a lesbian that would be pretty weird, but dating a girl while female does not make someone a lesbian (bisexuals exist after all).
