... Okay, it's probably just because I've been reading the comics late at night these past few days, due to being tired, but-

In the past, I've been told that gay guy could be considered an ally/etc because he, as a non-heterosexual male, is also harmed by the patriarchy.

... Is this comic saying we shouldn't really give his plight much concern, 'cause he's a male/guy?

... Eh I suspect I am reading too much into this. Likely, the post was meant to represent an *insincere* desire to point out how the patriarchy hurts men. It was perhaps, not, say, supposed to be representative of a person wanting to point out how the patriarchy also hurts men as a *additional* reason to take it down.

I can't imagine it would be trying to claim that simply pointing out the patriarchy hurts men and woman alike (even if not *EQUALLY*) means one must be a dudebro?

Damnit why do I have to overanalyze everything.

slightly

not that it doesn't need mocking

I guess

Remember this boys & girls, The Patriarchy® doesn't give two shits about men's or women's rights unless it benefits The Patriarchy®, it only cares about its members which pretty much excludes 99.9% of the human population.

I think what Tat is saying, judging by panel 3, is that all the dudebro whining and "issues" can be traced back to guys with the mentality of "ME! ME! ME!"

I think she means peak as in traffic volume, not vertical ascent.

I *think* she means she's had all she can take of privileged assholes that insist on making it about themselves.

Just sayin'. Smile

Tut tut.

Aw, Minique, I've had a hard day too. I colored to cheer myself up.



Only an hour on this one, I was a tad lazy. And I was too tired to catch that mistake...I'll fix it later.

I have a whole bunch of problems with a lot of aspects of all the strips with this particular theme, and with everyone's reactions to them, but right now I'm still too much of a coward to talk about most of them, and I'm also not confident in my ability to articulate my issues without making people feel like it's just a retread of debates that had already been had on these forums a million times before I got my account Embarassed

Maybe I will figure out an appropriate way to discuss it and get up the nerve to get into it another time. For now I'm just going to stick to what I'm pretty sure are the two most inoffensive questions on my mind and leave the rest alone.

1) When and why exactly did 'dudebro' come to be synonymous with 'misogynist', instead of just gregarious people who affectionately refer to their friends with the terms Dude and Bro a lot?

2) Is it too late to reclaim the original meaning? : (
