I’m way too angry to do this point form, so we’re breaking out the old panel by panel analysis! Panel One: I know I’ve been saying it out loud for about a week or so now, but I’m still amazed she just out and said it’s about Sal making them look like bad parents. Because […]

Confirmed

I’m gonna go back and say, “It fits the pattern of abusive homes” here, Walky is clearly playing the combination “Good child” and “Mascot”. Sal is clearly the “bad child” (not really bad, just how her role worked out). Linda is abusive, folks. she’s infantilized her son and alienated her daughter. I could almost suspect […]

So many notes! – Sal, Marcie’s known you since you were five. She knows where this is going – straight off a cliff. – It’s sweet Marcie doesn’t seem to blame Sal for what happened, although she seems to have more realistic expectations for her situation (and as such may not appreciate those comments – […]

I grew up with fraternal triplets as cousins. There is one they consider the “baby”, and there’s one who’s widely treated as the oldest, even though they were born literally less than two full minutes apart (emergency C-section). I also had two friends who were identical twins, and another two who were fraternal twins. Neither […]

I really liked the strip where she was talking about how being trans doesn’t mean she needs to buy into the forever sweet and passive BS version of femininity and that she CAN be a female, trans AND an asshole. It’s so HARD to reject that BS even when you recognise how harmful it can […]

Well, it’s not the worst superpower ever, but is “having nicknames ready to go for everyone” the lamest superpower ever? I’m trying to remember the nicknames she bestowed, but this is one of those searches for which tags aren’t particularly effective. These are what I’ve been able to recall/find: Danny: WonderbreadJoyce: Blue EyesJason: Bow Tie […]

Hey

Oh, I am not going to take that away from him. This is unusual for him, given how he has avoided conflict to his detriment a lot, like cowing to his mom. I do wonder if, well, hooking up with Mike has been good for his confidence, or if he otherwise would take this step. […]

I maintain that the only problem is we didn’t enforce the “Well-Regulated Militia”. in my dream world, where money is no object, firearm ownership and purchase of ammunition requires maintained certification:yearly training, marksmanship expectations, examinations on proper maintenance and current state and federal ordinances. These courses would be held twice monthly, and attendance of the […]
