Actually, Slick, the correct answer was B) Engage in elaborate and unlikely revenge scheme scenarios that would put you both in jail if you were drunk enough to follow through with them.

She needs to find a way to attract an audience that is more receptive to her beliefs.

(Has Tatsuya mentioned why he seems to be on a third-wave feminism kick for the past few months?)

Tat doesn't really mention things. We don't exactly have a dialogue.

I'd hypothesize that it started as some sort of restitution for his early work, based on the author insert getting a soul review from Devilcorp story line.

But I figure it's kept going because he enjoys the wank it causes or he could see himself as a benevolent educator who will drag (some of) us kicking and screaming into gender enlightenment.

While he might be concerned, it's not Nique who's the one who needs to change there. It's the idiots throwing tomatoes at her who should stop.

While there's always the idea of going to a more receptive audience, after a while (see tumblr) it tends to turn into a big circlejerk, and the idea of feminism is to spread it through society, not end up just preaching to the crowd.

Plus this isn't the 1600s, it's discouraged to throw shit at people you don't agree with.

And he showed his concern by saying that she shouldn't have said certain things as opposed to saying that those who attacked her are jerks and shouldn't have done so. It's not the most comforting thing in the world to hear.

I used to go on Scans_Daily before it turned into a huge circle jerk where your opinion would have more weight if you claimed that you were X gender, X race, and/or X sexuality. The last straw for me was when you were no longer allowed to say "lame" because it was considered abelist. It's like they needed an enemy to rail against, or they'd turn against one another for the smallest perceived offence.

If a community no longer offers you what you want, just leave. No one's forcing you to read or interact with that community.

Ah social justice Sallys. Taking real and important issues and turning them into privilege competitions.
I deal with them the way I deal with far left liberals. Roll my eyes and continue to fight for what I believe in. Crazy people are ubiquitous.

Relating to the comic itself, I hope 'Nique isn't too hard on him. Based on my observations people are far less likely to realize their mistakes if you scream at them. Sorta like learned helplessness ("Punish" someone for every little thing they do wrong, and eventually they no longer bother trying to do right.)
