Slick, take those things off already. They really don't suit you.

Unless the HSB has a thing for common bits of rough like Slick, he stands no chance anyhow.

Not recently apparently.

That is the point being made in the fourth panel, yes.

A price tag is a bad metaphor, because it was all about his sexual value, not about her sexual value. Objectification goes both ways (and since we exist in a material world, it's unavoidable - a surgeon also treats you as an object in order to save your life).

But again - the price tag is all about how much Slick is worth. This means that this woman has way more sexual power than he does. To put this in perspective, a corporation that attracts and hires people if they meet certain qualifications is in a position of power.

Hmm, I hope he doesn't assume that Slick's glasses actually tell him the truth of things, just that they show Kcil's world.

I'm going to laugh if it turns out she would've loved to date Slick if he didn't judge her so quickly beforehand.

That would clash somewhat with the whole nobody-loves-Slick theme. Though I'd laugh too if it happened.

....how do you see a list of what it takes to date _her_ being about slick's 'sexual value'? other than we know he can't meet all the things on the list?

she's expensive. that says nothing about how much power she has with a man who can afford her "price".

that sort of thing has happened before; Slick was too blinded by whatever else to notice someone else was interested in him.

and, to be honest, that works pretty well for his character too. he's kind of a dipshit.

I don't think that list was just to date her. I don't think anyone needs someone to be interested in a long-term commitment before we even date them. A long-term commitment is something you hope to develop with someone you're compatible with, not something you want to be told on the very first date. That's just kinda creepy, I think. Time and effort, too. I mean, I guess one could conceivably invest time and effort in order to make her feel they are datable, but I dunno.

I figure that list is probably just how much it takes to (eventually) sleep with her.

In either case, though, I would have expected a gender preference to be stated. Even if she's bi, I mean.

"Alphas" and "betas" are a pretty patriarchal construction all by themselves. The glasses are putting their own spin on shit -- even when Lucy tells the truth, he lies.
