I am making this thread so that when a new comic comes up that brings out cries of "What about the men?" and "Feminism is evil!", we can have somewhere to go where we can discuss the actual story - ie: that thing I think many of us are actually here for.

So feel free to whine about not getting character details that we'd all like to see, or arcs that are going by slowly.


Warning: Leave your whining about feminists and other people fighting marginalization at the door. You can be nice, be quiet or you can leave.

Nice Idea!

I want to start pointing this



http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=2183

This would be a "patriarchy movie prequel"?

I think so! I remembered some strips like that, but I didn't feel like looking for them in the archives.

Slick seems like he used to be a bit more bulked out in those to me. Kind of amused by gangly Slick.

Hahaha, you dicks, you got one post in before you started talking about the patriarchy! Nice story-only no-feminism thread, idiots!

Nah, the rule is no complaining about it. Talking about it is okay.

Maybe try renaming it The "No Complaints About Feminist Sinfest" Thread

Aww, I want to be insulted by Dennis too.

Today's comic really stirs up my hunger for badass heroines. Why can't I have girls and guns without the male gaze?

I guess I'm just more special.

Sad The comics industry is held in a death grip by dudebros. Hopefully webcomics and crowdfunding change the scene.

Sadly, considering the way that the movies are basically printing money, it's going to take more than webcomics and crowd funding to loosen the grip.

I don't mean they'll change the industry. I mean they'll provide a means for unrepresented people to make and buy stories about themselves.

...Now I'm speculating if there will be an actual page with no feminism talk here.

EDIT: Sorry stripey. Sad At the very least they won't say you didn't try. I hope it works out, though. Having it in some topics is cool, but there's a feminist chat overload at this point.

I don't think this was a failure. The "Complaints about Feminist Sinfest" is hilarious, and I'm glad that now exists.

Awesome then. I hope this one works as well. I guess I was just being pessimistic about it, though.
