I didn't, but after you stopped replying to me about the clothes I just assumed you didn't have an answer to my assertion that skimpy dressing is not an in-the-blood thing for succubi. As for the other things... It may not have been his choice to become a hybrid succubus or a half-and-half demon/angel thing, but everything else is his own doing. He didn't lose his moral agency the moment his chest grew a pair of funbags.brasca wrote: ↑Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:17 amYes. It does. What makes you think I changed my mind about that? And I would add that Teddy never asked to be injected with succubus blood or reaper ectoplasm. That was forced on him so in many ways he's just as much a victim as everyone else. The difference is I'm not equating this with rape.
What the hell are you even talking about?! The gulf of difference between using over-the-counter medicine to suppress psychotic behaviour and using what may as well be a biological weapon to make people want to have sex with you regardless of whether they actually wanted to before spans continents. If you're going to engage in whataboutism, at least do it right.brasca wrote: ↑Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:17 amAre you still going on about Teddi having sex with Pandora? She did that to get under her skin, but there's nothing incestuous about sleeping with a step parent unless that person is also a blood relative. And seeing as how Pandora is an ageless succubus whether this constitutes as underage sex is a moot point too. Besides this has nothing to do with succubus pheromones and how it makes someone instantly desirable. If you really want to go down the rabbit hole of mind altering substances then I suppose people who are on anti-psychotic medication should be taken off of it because it's wrong to force someone to be sane.
And for the record: No, smart guy, I'm not "going on" about Pandora's "prank" on Teddy. I'm talking about THIS strip, where Ilsa is revealed to be Pandora's mom in the middle of an extreme sadist-masochist torture-as-punishment run. Apparently you missed the subtext of that one.
Apparently you missed the part where I said it could just be about people being rendered too drunk to consent. That's not the same as being knocked out.brasca wrote: ↑Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:17 amAnd I would agree if Teddi or Teddy's pheromones knocked out everyone they encountered and they proceeded to have sex with them. Roofies incapacitate the victim so they are never willing participants. Now observe Daisy in action. http://www.dangerouslychloe.com/strips- ... -way-worse She is jumping Teddi as soon as she gives her permission to act. It's the same in the very next strip when she pays a visit to the rest of Daisy's gang. Pheromones aren't roofies.
If rewiring people's minds bothers you this much I suggest you never watch Code Geass. Or maybe you should since Lelouch Lamperouge never uses his power to compel people to sleep with him, but has no qualms about violence and mass murder.
I for one never considered her such, but that plot point was still really fucking stupid and I wondered why she didn't just grab a blanket.
How about the part where Daisy went from beating the snot out of Teddy to swapping spit with her in a matter of moments, while ranting about being willing to have a threesome? That should have been a major red flag.brasca wrote: ↑Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:59 amTeddi had a body comparable to Chloe's so it was easy enough for her to believe that they were lusting after her for that. They are high school boys after all. And Teddy was such a high school recluse I doubt he knew all that much about Daisy and her friends to know their sexuality so why would their sudden attraction be any crazier than everything else that happens in Teddy or Teddi's life?
Superman's entire existence is something that cannot possibly happen in real life, and never once have the people who've written him used that as an excuse for him acting like a dick. So enough of this "IT COULDN'T POSSIBLY HAPPEN" bullshit. As for Jacqui? She hasn't realised there WAS a change. She doesn't know there's anything to complain about. Likewise with the bullies: they DON'T REALISE IT'S HAPPENING. They can't complain if they don't know what happened to them. If Teddy told them to jump off a cliff, and they did, would you say they secretly always wanted to?brasca wrote: ↑Wed Nov 14, 2018 5:59 amWe're arguing something magical that has nothing comparable in the real world. You claim that they could never consent because they weren't truly in their right mind, but who's to say what that truly is? Neither of us know what's in somebody's mind or heart. Perhaps there is some desire deep down and the pheromones unlock it. Tell me something is Jacqui a victim too since she was a nerdy girl until Chloe altered her settings leaving her boy crazy? Jacqui isn't complaining and neither are the so-called other victims. If you want to call it rape that's your lookout, but if none of people who've been with Teddi or Teddy care to press charges because they genuinely enjoyed the time they had then there is no case. And that's really the difference between them and real victims of sexual assault. You might want it to be that way since it fits in with your own narrative. That doesn't appear to be how this story is playing out, but do feel free to hate read and complain.
And as for that comment about hate reading and complaining? Take that superior attitude and shove it. Liking this comic's current direction does not make you better than us.
He doesn't care about what we post here, apparently, so why would it phase him?Fereshte wrote: ↑Wed Nov 14, 2018 4:25 amI agree that I don’t think Dave is intentionally writing a main character who is a rapist. BUT that he (he?) has been so flippant about the concept of consent is disconcerting and makes for a very problematic comic. One can’t help but wonder what Dave’s own views on consent is, if he can’t even be bothered to address the on going issue here. Even a side character making a comment would at least let us, the reader, know that Dave understands this is rape. And I agree that I don’t see Teddy coming to a realization soon because it would make for a VERY dark turn in the comic—Teddi/y realizing they have raped multiple people, even without that being their intent, would be horrifying for him/her. And it’s true, this content would be better served for a darker comic rather than being treated as a joke.LegendaryKroc wrote: ↑Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:03 pmIt doesn't come off to me like Dave is TRYING to write material that tacitly supports rape by exploitation of inability to consent. It's purely that he's been too lazy to actually take a look at the implications of Teddy's actions. And even if we're about to have Teddy have such a realisation, this has been going on for too long without any introspection, so it's pretty freaking late for that.
