no, no, I said that would be horrible; the fact that fire bears are actually very cool has nothing to do with this

My goodness. If my girlfriend or sister could go out at night with no worries...
Best fantasy story ever. Hollywood ought to make a big-budget film out of it.

Kind of ignores the fact that most violence done against women is perpetrated by intimate partners or acquaintances. Potential Boogeymen in the dark aren't really the problem that needs dealt with. At any rate though, it certainly sounds like a pleasant utopia to live in, if not entirely fleshed out.

Great comic. It's great to see good humour applied to this topic. "The feminists strike again" comics are, while thought provocative, not nearly as relatable.

Smile

This made me smile. Smile

Also, "Xanthe Justice"? (Did she choose that name herself?)

She's a badass biker and fighter, just not so much of a writer.

Justice isn't that unusual of an American last name.

Well, nobody's perfect, are they?

Justice? Of the "Chummy Cherubs of" fame?

Nah, probably not.

This new info gives several of Xanthe's strips (pinpointed via searching Archives for "justice") a slightly new angle:

http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4252

http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4411

and most notably


http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4179
Looking for a hero? ASK FOR HER BY NAME.

We've also seen that Xanthe has a large statue of Lady Justice in her base.

Panel 8

Wait, if "Xanthe" means "yellow," she's...Yellow Justice? Blonde Justice?

Where the hell do you people live? I live in the city and we have these things called street lights and police. I see people (men, women, children) out at midnight all the time. We are not held up in homes with shotguns behind reinforced door as soon as the sun sets because that's when the rape mutants come out. Heck the streets are full of female joggers at midnight in my neighborhood (stupid yuppies).

Given that apr 78% of rapes are instigated by someone the victim knows I really don't get this. (Statistic from National Center for Victims of Crime). I guess I feel sad for you guys and whatever Mad Max world you live in. For me on this side of the Zombie Apocalypse we can walk the streets of most neighborhoods with impunity.

Rape is a horrible crime but it does not normally go down like a scene from a poorly written 1950's comic book.

There's been three incidents of rape in two years at the local Wal Mart parking lot. It's very well lit. 3 rapes in over 700 days, less that .5%, and that's not even factoring in the number of actual women-- .5% would be if only one woman went to the store at night, but Wal Mart doesn't get that few customers.

Guess what though? Women have become scared and disinclined to shop at Wal Mart at night. This is still considered a rural area, even though it happened in the city/town area of about 20,000.

Also, what about Universities?

Sigh, you're an unempathic idiot, why am I even bothering.

of course, one could point out that the often overexaggerated but nonetheless real threat of stranger-jumps-out-of-the-bushes rape is used as a means of social control to keep women from dressing and acting in certain ways, in policing their movement, in controlling and shaping the risk assessments they must make implicitly or explicitly whenever they leave their front doors, in shaping the attitudes they must take towards others as a matter of mere survival...

and one could point out that that, in fact, is the point of this comic, and the utopia is where Amanda gets to go out for a walk at midnight without having to think about any of that or run that risk...

Heaven forbid the complete elimination of a threat.

Hey, wait a minute... Isn't Lady Justice usually depicted as... you know... gold/yellow? #Symbolism #Maybe
