I really like that shirt/headphones combo! Actually, the fembots are very fashionable in general. I wonder if Tat's using them as an excuse to draw clothes he likes.

So why isn't there a male equivalent version of the fembots targeted towards women? They would sell, so why not make them? What about homosexual men and women, wouldn't they buy a bot just like a heterosexual man or woman? Why isn't the devil targeting these demographics; does he have bad business sense or something?

I'm sorry, but these are questions that are driving me crazy, and ones that I would really like some answers to.

Also, did Sleaze get the high score or something, because those guys are serounding him like kids in an arcade?

Because the fembots are a metaphor for a bunch of things and adding... Manbots? Whatever, making a male version would limit the gender inequality aspects of said metaphor. Sinfest isn't exactly known for making total sense, and a lot of things are sacrificed for the sake of delivering a message.

OK so it's not Monique, it just looks a little like her.
Bad idea: what if that's the security guard for the area? All those pumped up losers, drunks, junior kickbocker gym rats, and the occasional bezerker- all will have to be dealt with if they get out of line and do something like, oh say break the glass. Like Bondage Man did a few 'strips ago. Lure them in with an easy-looking target, then utterly destroy them. Hmm Battle Angel movie... Shocked Or River Tam, Leatherface Slayer. Beware the cute ones.

I'm very uncomfortable with those drawings. It's rather too graphic for my tastes. I don't want to see degrading of women.

At the risk of sounding insensitive, we can't just turn away every time we see something like this.

Perhaps that's the point. Getting people to acknowledge and be upset about something is the first step to changing it.

I'm aware of that. Then again, images like this aren't exactly rare (see the last Blade Runner movie) and hard to avoid. I don't want to see it here, too.

But I'm not asking Tat to change it. I just want to say it makes me very uncomfortable.

frankly sometimes it just feels like an excuse for tat to get away with drawing Hot Babes under the guise of Woke Feminist - i mean we could be able to figure out what was happening from context clues, we wouldnt really need to see the whole frame of what was happening, the visual is ultimately unnecessary to the punchline ... tat's drawn images of women being degraded over and over for years now with no real sign of things improving or getting better and sure its meant to be parallel to reality but frankly its starting to feel like the very torture porn hes trying to criticize with an insincere lens of feminist ideals.

A bit like Seymour and his critics of sexy Jesus. Maybe old pre-sisterhood Tat is trying to break free, but new woke Tat is suppressing him. Maybe Tat wakes up to find lewd drawing of girls on his sketch board and just draws around them to desperately try and convey a message.

Related to the quote from the comic "Think She is having fun?", Does anyone have any good literature suggestions on the psychology of a cam-girl? There are a LOT of apparently average women who have many other options that still choose the cam girl life. Many of them seem to be well educated and from stable families. From what I have heard, they are not only choosing that lifestyle voluntarily but actually fighting for the right to do so. I have heard a lot of cam girls claiming to be feminists and get annoyed at people who try to "Slut-Shame" them.
