"Those of us aware that Dangerously Chloe's primary element is Lightharted Silliness will continue to enjoy the means by which both artist & authour infuse that element throughout the narrative."
When Pandora was using her supernatural powers to get free ice cream that was "Lightharted Silliness". Doing the same thing to have sex with people may be your idea of "lighthearted" but it isn't mine. Nor is it exactly "silly".
The whole post-"quit hoggin' all the boys" sexcapades were a direct result
of the Girljocks Four-to-One GBH Dogpiling
of Teddi, whose pheremone capabilities kicked in as a Defense Mechanism. That is; an Autonomic Nervous System
reaction that Teddi is clearly unaware of, never mind having control over - something that the "Supernatural Rape!" Goon Squad alternately glosses over or dismisses out of hand while making excuses for Teddi being beaten into stewmeat. Also glossed over or dismissed out of hand: the Girljock fuckknuckles would have been a-okay if they haddn't resorted to violence. Confront? Sure. Conflict? Okay. Violence? Fuck that. A Four-On-One Shitkicking? Fuck them. That kind of violence & bullying has long-lasting effects
that resonate long after the initial assault.
Speaking from experience* - as someone who grew up in two domestically violent households, both riven with sexual and physical violence & who had to learn the hard way how to supress both my gag reflex & the urge to scream, Dangerously Chloe is a profoundly Safe Space & produces zero triggering effects
, regardless of how outlandish the senarios get or how hard the narrative brushes up against Bad Taste. Each & every scenario has been played out safely & to varying degress of hilarily while balancing a consistency of narrative. This self-important, self-righteous & demeaning, belitting & minimizing "Supernatual Rape!" boy-who-cried-wolf drum-beating & rhetorical posturing & insistance that a Fictional Narritive be read as a Doument of Behaviour is
what's upsetting & very often borderline triggering.
*TMI & Anecdotes =/= Evidence, but enough already. This has got to stop. Please.
