The talk of killing all men and continuing the species without them reminded me of the comic Y: The Last Man. If you've not read the series, you should.

One day, every man on Earth just keels over dead, except one. The book goes from there.

Not trying to get meta, but is Tat saying that man-hate is bad/evil too?

I'm reading this as him trying to say that after harping on misogyny for a while, he's throwing a bone to the misandrist -screaming crowd. eg: He's saying gender hate is bad.


Maybe this will make Monique realize that her current approach is incorrect?
*clipped strip*

I think Tat is actually telling all the "anti-misandrist" types that feminists don't hate men.

Also, the strip you posted is specifically referring to Monique's past behavior, not her current feminist stance.

Is she? She knew it was bad to think that, at least.

3. Every time that anyone has ever used "girl/girly" as an insult. "You throw like a GIRL," or "I can't believe I lost to a GIRL," or "Did you know that Bob likes My Little Pony? Like a GIRL." (DOUBLE WHAMMY, since that last one is blatantly misandrist as well. Why shouldn't a guy like My Little Pony?)

No, she's not. That was my point though. Some people are going to twist around what happened in the comic.

That is a great example. It reminds of Slavoj Zizek's concept of objective violence, except replace the violence with sexism. We are accustomed to a "base level" of sexism in society, so most people don't even realize these things are sexist. It's only when something goes beyond the base level that the average person registers the event as sexist.

It's often why people say "There isn't much sexism around me", even though they probably just don't notice it.

I thought of that exact same comic. It is a great series.

Brian Vaughan is just awesome.

Dawwwww. I'm surprised "I am unfriendly" got her through <3

I don't think 'Nique actually means it. She's just been told to shake their butt, hit with tomatoes, and then blamed for it all. She's bound to say a few things she doesn't actually mean.

I somewhat hope Nique will get bomfed so she can also fight her inner demons just like Slick is doing now.

She has been doing that for a while. Their respective fights are just different.

Or it's on a conveyor belt, like at the airport.

Gotta make sure those lunch boxes aren't smuggling happy thoughts.

It looks like she's picking it up after having set it down.

I wonder if the way devil girls both get hired and get to the mansion. This would possibly explain Crim's comment about how Fuchsia wasn't always a devil girl. (That quote bugs me to no end, more than any other cryptic thing in Sinfest.)

Exact same fight. It's not like she already won. She just gained territory.

Oh thank God, I'm not the only one. I thought I had missed something. There has to be some sort of reason that he knew that. Maybe it was just a desparate guess in an attempt to calm her down or confuse her? Are devil-people not born naturally, but made? Even The Devil started out as an angel, if we're assuming this is the same Devil as the one in the Bible, so maybe that's it, that hell-people are not born, but are made. It would also explain Lil E's trouble with being bad after his amnesia spell, wouldn't it?

i assumed it had something to do with crim's experience with the bomfed country girl or something like that, it's been a while and i don't remember it well

it probably doesn't explain it as well as i thought it did

Pebbles didn't appear until years after that moment, and I'm not sure she and Crim have ever met, anyway.

I think that they're referring to this strip:
