This one is written by Cecilia, and I think it’s amazing. Partly, because it has Pokémon, and there are PLENTY of references for that.
Also, Brock Anderz has to be my absolute favorite thing in the world besides the Tuna Bandits.
Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
Sorry, a little bit of my personal life seeped into my tumblr feed. Comics will resume as usual. I’m sorry for involving you guys in that stuff.
As a cishet white male, I’d like to give you my informed opinion on feminism. Just kidding, I’m here to talk about dirt. I love dirt. I love rolling in the dirt, rubbing sweet dirt from the equator in my hair, eating dirt. Sometimes when I eat dirt, there are rocks…
Heya again! This was an idea I came up with when Cecilia and I were brainstorming. I wrote the script for this one. Pakratt typically ends up in many ironic situations in his GuudeLand grunt work live streams, and I wanted to capture the sheer ridiculousness of it. Enjoy!

This is a guest comic made entirely by Machinga! I think this comic has a quirky quality to it, and Machinga worked really hard on this. He basically FORCED me to put this up as a guest comic!
