"Why shouldn't I hate my oppressor?"

Alright, I like a challenge. Um... Well there's... Don't forget that...

Hey, what's that over there?

I like her helmet.

Also, this thread is going to have someone who thinks she speaks for the whole Sisterhood, even though we've seen they each react differently.

As to answer her, please tell me how you have been oppressed by EVERY male in the universe? Does us EXISTING = oppression, for her I'm starting to believe yes.

You're too stupid to understand the explanation.


I could try but you wouldn't get it, it'd waste my time and the only thing that would be AS BIG a waste of time would be if I were trying to teach a chimp to juggle balls. That at least would be amusing.

I really enjoy how she doesn't even try to stick around for his explanation and is clearly just walking away from the confrontation completely.

Not a chimp, but I can juggle balls. Since I don't have any of my own, I'll need to borrow some. Any volunteers?

Fuck you Monkey, you don't really have an explanation that makes sense so I'm just too stupid for it. If that's what you want to play at then that's fine. I take these forums with a grain of salt anymore.

People have told you that there's something more to it repeatedly. You don't believe it for a moment, and won't engage long enough to figure out what it is everyone is talking about.

So you march into a thread yet again displaying just how much you don't understand it - and you're surprised by Monkey's reaction?

Are you aware that a lot of the feminist (and feminist adjacent) people here are actually men? They'd certainly have something to lose supporting a group that blanket hates them and is out to round them up so they can be chained up in man-cattle corrals. So there might be a reason why they support feminism.

They might also personally disapprove of the sentiment expressed here in this strip, but you wouldn't know that because you started straight off with the same old uneducated argument that you always give.

If you would give people a chance to speak and put your biases to the side, you'd get to take part in a nuanced discussion. But since you can't do that, you don't get to. That's not some punishment you get for ignorance. That's just a consequence.

if you're going to forget every piece of information people have given to you over the last year every time a new thread comes out I find it hard not to believe you're too stupid to be taught. Maybe it's just stubborn, either way it's a waste of time and is only going to end in me telling you to fuck yourself and you stomping off in a huff.

Now i'm getting up in the years so I don't have the time to do that song and dance over 20 pages and 2 weeks anymore. could wake up dead tomorrow for all i know. So i'm boiling it down for you. Go back to all the threads where people wasted page after page patiently explaining to you. Extrapolate from that information the answer to your question.

Rothide, I'll be honest, I was pretty much rolling my eyes at the comic too. However, Dogen brought up the point that she is her own character and she has been the more aggressive of the Sisterhood. She is definitely the most militant. She kind of reminds me of the Chickenhawk character from Loony Tunes. And I don't mean that in a patronizing way. It's because she is obviously the youngest of them, the new recruit, and she wants to prove herself.

At this point I actually really like Xanthe. She is wary of men, but at least wants to hope that one day she can trust in them, but is always let down. My favorite of the Sisterhood is probably the black character who doesn't have a name yet (unless I missed it). She seems the most zen to me. But then again, I like her more because she matches my point of view more often (especially in terms of pornography).

I would like to see Tat develop them more as characters. As it stands now, they are probably at the lower rung of my how I rate my characters (save for the black member of the sisterhood). I still see them as walking slogans most of the time, but then again, they really haven't had as much character development time as the others.

I remember Bill Watterson talking about the parents in Calvin and Hobbes and how he wish he could write more stories for them. However, it was difficult because he didn't want to give them names nor did he want the strip to focus around them and their personal stories. That's a bit of the problem with the Sisterhood. We don't ever really get to see them have fun. When they are enjoying themselves, I really like them quite a lot.

Dang it...what is her name anyway? I SWEAR it was Curly, but wasn't that the name of the youngest one? I can't remember and I don't care enough to search for it.

Don't get me wrong I don't hate the characters, they make my eye roll but I don't hate them... their just caricatures. I don't really agree with any of the stances beyond equality for all however. But meh, what cna you do.

And I was just saying, she hates all men because they oppress, thus she must feel that EVERY man has does something toward her, even men she never met.
