It's not a sin because even the most innocent and well-intentioned can be a part of it just by compliance or inaction. Most of the 'guilty' of Patriarchy seem to be just the ones that don't know that it's there. Slavery, though? Slavery is done very consciously with profit in mind.

Alright, yeah, there is profit to be found somewhere, my bad. It's extremely impractical but it gets a free pass because comic strip, but I feel like a huge part of the message is missing and it's exactly what we have with the Matrix thing: It's all around us, is has existed since forever and very few people even realize that it's there. By thinking of dudebros as people created ignorant by design in a factory we are just simplifying the matter way too much.

And yes. It's a metaphor. I know. But I don't think it's made clear enough just what that factory should represent in that metaphor.



EDIT: Midnight Tea, I commend you for a great analysis of the character. Gave me some stuff to think about.

I celebrated by sleeping.

and having terrible nightmares that fully held my attention because of how strange they were
and then forgetting about those entirely and resolving to gain some weight

imma see if I can break 200lbs (90kg) by the end of the year
just 50lbs more to go, wish me luck

Try increasing all portions sizes by 5-10%.

Also, late night nachos.

Thanks, Leo Smile

I love exploring that kind of thing. Behind every great character is a great motive, regardless of the setting.

I'm just a fan of a cute cartoon show, I never asked for any of this.

hence the spoiler image for the thumbnail

...which isn't actually used
mostly I included it because it had her name


actually, very few of the images of this character have anything whatsoever to do with nazis
besides her cutie mark

Much improved I must say.

It's a waste if they don't have any images of her in shorts and kneesocks in freezing winter weather like the real one.

Thank Heaven for small miracles, I suppose. Still, of all the friggin' things to get hit by Godwin's Law....

I don't think that it's "Godwin's law" that's coming into play, here, exactly.

As far as I know, they don't, but I can't say as I've actually looked through all the cards.

wikipedia wrote:
Godwin's law (or Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies) is an Internet adage asserting that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1"


I first mentioned Return to Castle Wolfenstein because earlier in the day I was trolling stoners about it being '4/20', which is Hitler's birthday, and the anniversary of the other stuff I mentioned.

Godwin's Law really isn't about discussing Nazi's or Hitler, it's more of a reference to how, over a long enough time frame, online dialogues tend to eventually degrade and civility breaksdown to the point where people throw out exaggerations and ad hominems involving comparisons to Nazis and/or Hitler, which are, by their nature, usually inappropriate, if not outright wrong.

I figured not, but I didn't know how to be clever in expressing my disappointment in the fandom for (1) creating a Nazi pony, and (2) popularizing her so much she earned her own warning tag.
