Seriously, who the heck knows how Tat's playing with us any more?


...Are you trying to make her the bad person or were you genuinely just trying to find a new aspect to the comic.

I really hope it's the latter.

I guess I can't look at women without being misogynistic anymore Sad

That's not what the comic says.

Remember, Slick/Kcils wasn't just looking.

Looking is fine, leering is not (let alone commenting out loud).
Didn't your mother* ever teach you that it's not polite to stare?

*or father or other figure, but "didn't your mother" is the common, if highly sexist, phrase.

....so are we being shown that women and creepy men leer at members of the other gender, but creepy men come off as threatening and judgemental women come off as rude and hurtful? Shocked

Aye, that's a better choice.

Possibly, due to the difference in male and female experiences with leering members of the opposite sex. Nothing happens in a vacuum, after all. And I would switch that to creepy women and creepy men or just stick the creepy modifier at the beginning to work for both of them. Otherwise you're suggesting ALL women, but only creepy men.

Checking out = OK if the other person doesn't notice and you respectfully look away when they do if it seems they're not into it.
Making someone uncomfortable with your words or actions = *never* OK.

I think only us can tell whether he's a devil or not, remember he was a devil when he betrayed Xanthe, but she didn't see it? She saw only Slick. Plus I think Slick passed through the mirror and swapped places with Kcils

It's the difference between looking at someone when you're in a cafe, and thinking they look nice, and passing by them and saying, "I would tap 'dat". Especially if you're male to ladies. Because: http://jezebel.com/louis-c-k-on-men-we-re-the-no-1-cause-of-injury-and-474239573

Oh no oh no oh no...devil Slick and Slick are the same person...potential for Slick to having a meaningful friendship with Xanthe is dropping...

This really casts a new light on the whole Xanthe being disappointed in being let down by devil Slick before. Because if they are the same person, she was right to be disappointed. And maybe devil Slick and slick aren't even alter egos of each other with limited knowledge of each other - maybe they're just the same person.

Oh noes...

Perhaps it's only us that can tell the sides of Slick, we can tell when he's the corrupt side, and when he's normal, maybe he'll get a pure side too?

Even if she sees him as a devil person, she's reacting to his behavior. In the first panel she was just walking on by, then he was creepy to her.

I think what you're noticing is behavior that used to go by unremarked by the women of Sinfest is now being called out.

The somewhat infamous "Schrodinger's Rapist" article seems relevant here.
