Sorry, I felt insulted by this. Particularly the panel where women and only women are giving logical fact based arguements and the man is ignoring them all, followed by all men following a I AM SPARTICUS call to ignorance.
The thing about this comics is you could switch the sexes in the arguement being presented in his comic wihtout a whole lot of change (dick statue not withstanding).
Take it from a guy who has been stalked by a woman (restraining orders creepy following around, looking through my windows at 3am, actual fucking stalker) women can be just as creepy as degenerate men on the internet.
So lets reverse the rolls. Lets say guy tries to disuade a creepy fangirl, the fangirl takes offense and blog posts about how the guy was being sexist. Guy tries to explain how he making a statement about her, not her gender, girl ignores all logical argument and starts screaming about feminism, other women flock to her cause. Guy feels defeaed by the overwhelming force and is sorry he said anything in the first place.
Would you say that comic is being sexist in its depiction of the sexes?
I don't like this comic, I'm not saying guys can't be creepy dicks, I just think this comic while trying to make a statement about sexism isn't self aware enough to realize that it itself is sexist.
And yes I AM aware that I, in my rambling way can be said to be fufilling the "Let me explain how you are wrong blah blah blah blah" role. I just don't think this comic is being fair.
