Not sure I get what is shown by the glasses. Everything has a price? Everything is for sale?

Reminds me Oscar Wilde's response to the question of what is a cynic? Someone who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

I think Kcils's glasses are just objectifying everything and everyone.

I'm guessing this is him realizing what his old worldview was actually doing. He might have realized that porn and patriarchy made him see the world differently but not how it was different. Now he sees it clearly.

Wonder if Slick's normal glasses change Sleaze's view at all?

I hope this is the beginning of a big change for Slick.

When will Sleaze stop trying to ruin Slick's progress?

Probably when Slick stops subconsciously wanting it.

I wonder why the tree gets a barcode and the flowers get a price tag. Does it relate to anything or is it just the only thing large enough to be coded?

There's a price tag hanging off the branch of the tree.

Slick must be a pretty heavy sleeper, to not hear Sleaze stumble like that.

I figured he turned it on in slick's world so it would be off in his own.

I take this as a sign that the comic might be taking a more Marxsist viewpoint of feminism. Treating women as property, after all, is only a symptom of the larger problem: having a concept of ownership and property to begin with.

Maybe this is a plot arc that will culminate in us finally seeing Slick's eyes xD

Seriously, I can't wait to see where this is going. Also, those shades seem like the direct opposite of the Sisterhood's patriarchy filters. Maybe this could somehow be a catalyst for Slick to try on a pair of those.

One question comes to mind concerning these special shades, do they work in the Reality Zone?
