Nice idea 'Nique but Dudebro Inc has already developed the Stealth Rotten Tomato in anticipation of this possibility.

Oh dear.

Given the current plotline, I'm pretty sure that's Lily setting off the detector...

I don't know how she's going to take to a guy trying to come in looking for his friend. And given Lily's current mental state-

... This may not end well for the guy. =(

I don't think things will end poorly for Li'l E if he is actually the one going through. Considering the fact that Curly is there - she wouldn't let Li'l Sis harm him.

Not only is Curly the most patient and understanding of the sisterhood thus far, and thus would recognize that he's completely harmless and would not allow anything to befall him... but Li'l E is also confirmed to be Sisterhood Approved. Xanthe has shown that she wants him on their side twice, and Curly seems to be the closest to Xanthe and likely second in command if not straight-up the leader. And thus she would likely know about any plans of welcoming Li'l E onto their side. Li'l Sis may attempt to harm him for his intrusion, but based on what we know of Curly, it's very likely that she'd stop her in her tracks and calmly reassure Li'l E. Curly is the one who encourages guys that it's ok to cry, after all.

I am really hoping that Tat is using the figurative sense of "dick" otherwise there are some pretty uncomfortable cissexist and transmisogynist implications. Hell, even some gross TERF-ey or right-wing bathroom-policing ideas are based around the idea of "if you have a dick, I should know, because dicks are inherently threatening". The idea that someone can detect what kind of configuration is going on in your pants with a device just really creeps me out.

Not related but I had a dream I met Tat last night. I was being really enthusiastic telling him how much I loved Sinfest but all the time I was worried he was going to run away if I got too excited. So I restrained myself and tried to be cool. I don't remember what happened, other than him being nice and glad I liked Sinfest so much.

I'm sure that it's the figurative version - detecting someone *being* a dick rather than possessing one.

Hooray for Mini-'Nique and Tess building warning devices. Wish I could borrow some...

Yeah, ehh... me too. Like honestly the first time the dick detector showed up I was uncomfortable. Like, I figured that Tat was using dick as a synonym for jerk, ... but it was still poorly named and it still made me uncomfortable. And it made one of my close friends really uncomfortable too. I wish he had called it the prick detector instead. It's not alliterative, but it rhymes with dick detector... eeugh. I do not want Tat going down that road.

Oooh... that reminds me, one time I dreamt that Tat moved into my neighborhood, I don't really remember much about it except that we became drinking buddies for some reason? I don't even like alcohol, and I can't legally drink booze either, so that was weird and in general it didn't really make sense.

But if it is, it shouldn't be Lil'E/Lily, right? Because he's not being a dick right now, and hasn't been for quite a while. Idk the only way I'm not going to feel really uncomfortable is if it turns out to be someone like Slick or Dman, or possibly that random John.

Oh, absolutely, Lil'E shouldn't be setting off the Dick Detector (figurative version). If it's anyone in particular, my shiny penny is on Sleaze, given his current form for intruding into Slick's life and being unpleasant.

Doesn't "prick" have the exact same origins as "dick" though? Originally a term used to refer to male genitalia, now has the connotation of someone acting like a jerk. It's just that people still use "dick" to refer to genitalia but they don't so much use "prick" any more. But I've still seen it used in that way.

So... I don't know. I think that the uncomfortable double meaning would still be there. I'm gonna wait and see what Tat does with this before I decide whether it was a really, really bad idea to go there or just a sort of bad idea.

I've just thought, maybe it's more than one person. Maybe to cheer Li'l E up, Slick (and by association, Sleaze) offered to help him go find his 'friend' and this was the first place they looked. Then it would be anyone's guess as to who is really setting off the detector (though my money, like yours, would still be on Sleaze).

Oooh yeah, I forgot he was still wandering around. Okay, my money is on Sleaze or Mr. Random John. I'd love to see the resultant confrontation in any case.

(Sorry for the double post 'n' stuff. I keep thinking of extra things to say).

I actually hope this is the case! Because I think the sisterhood needs to deal with transmisogynistic issues too! Maybe even lil sis splits apart from the main group if she's super anti-penis, 'cuz there really should be discussion on the fact that some trans women are denied access to women-only spaces because of radfems.

We can't pretend everything is always peachy in the land of feminism :V!

Oh there's definitely dissent in Feminism land. Problem is that it's hard to discuss those when you've got groups who think all feminists are teh evilist evil of satan world.
