I mean, okay, perhaps I already know the answers. But, today, I ask.

It's become really misandrist and it is disappointing and insulting. There was so much I enjoyed about this strip and most of it is just gone now, replaced by this self-indulgent and utterly predictable material. It's still drawn really well, and there have been some fine stylistic examples (particularly the Sunday strips), but wow the man-bashing continues unabated.

So, why am I still here? I'm here because I'm hopeful the things I enjoyed will return. No, I do not want Monique to start shaking her ass again, I am not against character development and change, but it seems to be all about the man-hate now and likely won't change until Tat has fully worked out his issues. I'll give it some time.

Uh....he's critiquing a system, not all men. The individual actions depicted in the comic exist on a continuum of misogyny, and he's highlighting that.

If you think he's "man-bashing", you really need to read these strips again.

Then That should read the constitution first.
You don't change the world by silencing dissenters - that olny creates division and sweep under the rug the resentment that builds slowly against you.


Someone's confusing "free speech" with "freedom from consequences", I see. Smile

You need to check your vision then because silencing forcefully different opinions doesn't get your points across.
And people wonder why right-wing groups are so prevalent among the disenfranchised...

Oh, you're still here?

...Well, nothing new I guess. You still kind of suck.

Of course banning isn't always the solution.

But whining about a private forum exercising their right to remove people that are clearly there just to disrupt is, oh, what's the word?

That's right. Privileged. Smile


Just like people complaining about being banned from men's rights forums, right?

I mean, I agree with you that a private forum should be able to moderate as they please, but there are an incredible number of people who think that it's only cool to ban people for their words only when they don't agree with that person.

Who would complain about being done -that- favor?

Yeah, I'm trying to see the argument here. Theoretical feminists complaining about being banned from a Men's Rights forum? So what?

I've just realized that just near the last big Sam & Liberty arc in 2012 May, there was also a very similar comic to this.


I'm not sure what to think.
