Personifications of Canada? I'VE GOT PLENTY!

There's Matthew Williams, of Hetalia fame... Canada of Scandinavia and the world... Mother Canada...

And there is, of course, always the option of Lady Justice.

For example, I think 'Nique address Liberty as "girlfriend" the very first time they were in a strip together (I could be wrong). What's that about? Doesn't that imply that they'd met at least once before?


Well, not necessarily. It's pretty common for girls/women to refer to other girls/women as "girlfriend," even when they are meeting for the first time.

Now, had she said to another person, "My girlfriend (Liberty) and I were hanging out the other day," that would imply that they are friends (or, well, girlfriends in the dating sense).

That also might change depending on region, though. I'm in the (slightly) southern US, and "girlfriend" is still used that way here.

Ooooh. Well that makes way more sense. My fault. I'm seeing dudebros everywhere now. When the entire internet becomes "that bitch eating crackers" to me, you know it's past time for bed. Rune, I apologize from the bottom of my exhausted heart. It wasn't you, it was the sleep deprivation from parenting. My humblest apologies.


Oh, honey, I hear ya. I've got two under three right now. I hear ya. No worries.

Clearly, we have a lot in common! I've got a 3 month old, and a turning-three-tomorrow. Both with a fist full of serious health issues.
If you can forgive me, *lights snazzy cigar* I think this could be the beginning of a beautiful sleep-deprived friendship.

When RL is crazy-making, even the nuttier corners of the 'net can be a sane haven by comparison Wink

Awww I love SATW Smile And I think Mother Canada is cute and would match Liberty visually quite awesomely.

Because "dump him" isn't what you want to hear when talking about a relationship that may have you emotionally and financially entangled to a point where you don't see it as a viable option.

Also, sometimes a person just wants to talk about their problems and have someone just listen and sympathize without trying to take over and fix it.

You silly people there are only 2 ways to proper personify Canada, either A its a lumber jack hockey player missing a couple teeth but smiling and with a good sense of charm and nature and some French but with out a silly accent. Or else you have to go for the tall lean Canadian with the Quebec accent, smiling always polite though with a touch of irony now and then and muttering when you are out of ear shot. Actually you might need to go with both... and then their other brother "Newfie" who always speaks with an implacable accent and is a fisherman by trade but is currently out of work O.o and speaks in strange colloquialism that make sense only to other people in his area.

Sides... that all being said i think liberty would have a worse time if she dated one of the Canadas seeing as how any way you slice it then would get "interesting" fast that french Canada kind walked it's way across the nation to make things so.

That all being said, actually it is kind of refreshing FOR sam to be more open about his looking at pornography online, if you hide it and make it this giant secret it can become this big ass rift. By bringing it into the open now it can be discussed now there can be boundaries established with it that they can both feel comfortable about so long as both are willing to actually discuss the problem and find solutions.

I smirked because I thought that was so typical of Xanthe to say.

But yeah Liberty should cut Sam loose - it's hard really. Sometimes you don't want to hear that the one you love isn't going to be the one for you.

Oh Liberty, be my girlfriend! I would treat you right. I would buy you dinner and not feel like I should be rewarded and not call you a bitch on the internet. Or visit the Red Pill ever.

/lowstandardslol

That Canada is hot, but Liberty should go steady with the Netherlands.

Being Canadian I find your over-generalization and stereotyping of me and my fellow people as both insulting and degrading and I must ask that you stop.

On a different note my head kind of hurt reading this strip. I know Xanthe is being Xanthe but she's pretty much telling Liberty to walk away from Uncle Sam effectively turning America into a real life version of the book 1984 which would basically drive her feminist movement into the ground -_-.

Oh no wait! Liberty should be with New Zealand!

Considering they are number 1 in freedom.

Soooo.... I guess having a serious discussion with one's partner (perhaps with professional counseling as a mediator) about this is not an option at all? It's either give in or dump them?
