Gabby's Playhouse: Discussing Sexism on the Internet

So, recently Kate Beaton made some comments on Twitter about how sometimes guys that like her work will respond with comments she finds creepy/uncomfortable/offensive.

Gabby's Playhouse then did a webcomic entitled "How Every Single Discussion About Sexism and Woman-Type Stuff on the Internet (and real life) Has Ever Happened And Ever Will Happen, Always, Forever, Until the Earth Finally Falls Into The Sun. (Or until the patriarchy is finally dismantled.)"

I don't quite get that last panel, but the rest of it is kinda recognizable.

This is very accurate. I read Ms. Beaton's original tweets about the subject and she was totally on-point. The rebuttal blog she retweeted (very generously, in fact) was stupid as fuck and everyone saying that it isn't weird to tell a stranger you want to make babies with them should take a flying leap.

Also kate beaton comics are so great.
