 July 25, 2018: Political 23

This brief visual commentary on how evil corporations use social movements as a façade to manipulate good people and mantain their shady schemes is so juicy. And so unfortunately true. I love it tho', I was waiting for something like that, thanks, Tat.
Call me Celina. I've been a fan since 2007, and tried to enjoy the old forum since then too. Now that we have a forum for radfems/people who actually enjoy the comic! Hell yes! I'll call up all my buddies here!! Armageddon is coming.

My first post... Greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Been following Tat since 2001, loved Sinfest's feminist turn, somehow synchronized with my own feminist awakening.

I'm very excited about the Amber history arc. I suspect Tat wants to use it to hint some parallelism between "sex-positive", "pro-sex workers" liberal feminism and Amber's predicament.

Acritical, knee-jerk progressive reactions can lead us to accept anything that is sold to us using a frame of civil liberties... with the abolitionist approach to prostitution being reframed as puritan, freedom-hating. As I'm writing this, Amber seems about to sign. She may or she might not... From a storytelling perspective I want Amber to sign the contract so we can see the devices used by Big D to neuter the social justice discourse until it can wash the consciences of progressives and make cosmetic changes to society, but is no longer any threat to the statu quo. Then Amber will regret having, literally, sold herself to the devil. A difficult story to pull out, but we've seen Tat pullin out challenges worse than this one... Just speculating.

Welcome aboard, cesarastudillo.

As for what the D has in mind to neuter the social justice movement... see the July 26 comic.
