I guess slick really is maturing, he looks legitimately horrified by all this.

Anyone else notice the devil statues behind the patriarchy symbol holding aloft what I assume to be the fruit of knowledge?

Related to this strip: How does porn metaphorically put women into a pit of doom? Must it?

Not related to this strip: This "Ditzabled Princess" comic constantly advertised on here is both horrible -- like, incredibly unfunny and pointless -- and borderline offensive.

This is so incredibly interesting! Slick does seem to actually understand that something is really wrong (instead of just doing it for the sake of getting girls to like him).

It's less about porn and more about the patriarchy. The male symbol is everywhere and the women in the pit are marked with the female symbol, pink triangle, and rainbow flag.

Yup. Time to pack it in. This comic has stopped being funny in favor of the same old tired feminist cliches.
Whatever its his comic he can what he wants with it. But I feel like his talents as an artist and a comedian are being wasted on this soapbox.

oh no, here we go again.
everyone, bingo cards, today's the day!

(oh and I was actually surprised by this strip. slick realizing there's the other side and going in and seeing all of that and being genuinely uncomfortable and concerned about it? I like it! go slick, go! character development makes me happy.)

I'm sure tat is going to be devastated to lose such an enlightened reader as yourself.

i love how tat can spend several weeks doing strips completely unrelated to feminism, instead focusing on THE CHARACTERS THEMSELVES outside of any context of feminism or any other form of activism, but then the minute he goes back to anything with ANY SORT OF VAGUE FEMINIST THEME or otherwise any kind of THERE IS SOMETHING FUCKING WRONG WITH SOCIETY AND INTERNALIZED SEXISM tone and everyone keeps going on about the FEMINISM and how it's RUINED THE COMIC.

man, fuck off. you don't have to like it but you obviously don't give a shit about the comic itself in any way shape or form. its like you just don't want to acknowledge any strip that exists unless its one that you don't like.

Basically, yeah. Though I believe the XXX marked laptops might or could serve as some sort of metaphor for the way a lot of men seem to have unrealistic standards or expectations on what sex is like based on porn? Maybe. I'm not sure.

But it's definitely more about the entitlement, and in general internalized misogyny, that permeates society and results in unfair and unrealistic gender roles and expectations. And effects the way men and women view each other. Ect.

Yeah <3 it's really great. I mean obviously, he's got some ways to go, because he's too scared to really speak up and just... accepts it and conforms. But I can't really blame him - that dude is fucking huge, he's fucking scary, Slick has personally seen the dude fucking tear his heart to metaphorical shreds with an axe, and now he has a fucking mace. I'd probably do whatever the fuck he wanted me to do as well. That's fucking terrifying. But at the same time, even though he lacks the courage to defy him, he's still genuinely uncomfortable... scared... hesitant... and he's not even bowing the same way. Which is pretty great, I mean, for Slick.

Sorry to hear that. Though I am sure he will get over it. In the mean time, I will happily make everyone Dude-Bro Tears Beer, now brewed with twice the Dude-Bro Tears. As an apology for offering my opinion on something. Since it has clearly upset some of you. And if those upset, do forgive me for being so bold, would please kindly cry into this bucket? Dude-Bro Tear Brew isn't going to brew itself. And do think some of us are getting thirsty.
