Have we seen Tat do this kind of foreground-background effect in panel 4 before?

Also, I hope the littlest feminist has more of those "Douche Bag" shirts.

"douchebag."

Sexist derogatory term relating to a feminine hygiene product.

"Why not "scumbag?"

Or the ever-popular "Dudebro?"

So if you are a douche, you are bad. The feminine term applied to a masculine character. So the feminine is negative and insulting when applied to a male. Opposite is not true.

For instance, "balls" is positive. "He's got BALLS!" or even "She's got more BALLS than her husband!"

"Pussy" or "c*nt" is negative. "What a pussy!" "What a c*nt!"

Consider "bitch" versus "dog" or "dawg."

"She's a bitch"

"Bitches be crazy."

"You DOG!! HEHEHE"

"Wassup Dawg?"

Not really a criticism, just an observation.

Hypocrisy is the natural state of the human being.

Heh.

Carries katana left handed. Draws left handed. Fights right handed. Makes my head hurt every time I see her do it.

Lil'E's house. He has some kind of crazy arsenal from his pre-amnesia days... they also got night vision goggles, but lost them. Kids!

Well, there is "dick", "dickhead", "dickbag", "cock-shmere", "cock-blocker", "cock-sucker" and, if we get a bit liberal with it, "cum-stain", "splodge bag", "jerk-off", "jack-off", etc. that are insults relating to male genitalia and genital treatment (i.e., masturbation).

That, specifically, seems to be something men get that women don't: insults related to masturbation. Ain't no one ever got called a "clam-patter" on any busy highways I been on.

Yay Pebbles. I hope this turns out to be the start of something a bit more concrete in terms of joining/aiding the Sisterhood, though her practical douchebag-fighting skills are almost certainly more advanced than her understanding of when to fight and when to stop.

Since vaginal douching hasn't been shown to have any real benefits, and may have some negative effects, and is something some women can be more or less shamed into--yeah, I think "douche bag" is a reasonable term for a useless person.

Douches are harmful and used to be worse for you. You know Lysol? It's formula used to be even stronger and was advertised as an effective 'germ' killing product. It was also advertised as safe and gentle. 'Germ killing' and other statements from their ad copy were actually euphemisms for birth control, because it was popularly believed that products like Lysol were capable of getting rid of all semen, thus preventing pregnancy. This, of course, was not true, so all douchebags offered was a corroded, infected vagina. Lysol and similar douches fell out of favor once birth control was available.

It's funny you compare douchebag to words like pussy, cunt, or bitch. Pussy and cunt are words for female anatomy. Douchebag would not be their opposite - dick or cock would. Yet men don't have to fear all passersby rolling down windows and shouting, "COCK!" in a threatening manner.

Bitch is the term for a female dog. A male dog is called a dog. Guess which term when applied to humans is the bigger insult?

What does douche have to do with these terms? It is not a reference to a male body part, nor to a man's status as an inferior inhuman creature. Also, these words are not masculine words that insult femaleness. They are female-related words that insult the gender they have to attach to.

Douchebag's insult could be an inherently masculine one if you think people are using it to refer to the douchebags who marketed LYSOL to women to put into their VAGINAS. That is certainly an asshat thing for those people to have done, and they happened to be men taking advantage of a mysoginystic law in order to profit.

Off the top of my head, uh... Li'l E's house? There were definitely a lot of weapons in there.
