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.

Intersectionality!
hmm never heard of it.

no i know that men, regardless of sexuality are capable of "male privilage" in my experience though i have seen more gay men on the side of women when it comes to matters of feminism and sexism. hell i know gay men who would be ready to in the words of the great Kathy Griffin "Cut a bitch" if thier girl friends were accosted like that :)

i know what the comic is trying to say just makes it seem like all men are bastards...

i am probably reading WAAAAY too much into a web comic

that said, i totally support her point of view as it is a very valid one (though in all honesty those type of responses are not exclusive to women internet trolls will troll anything that moves:)
