"Clinical" seems a stretch, though I'll go with "mature". She's hitting the sort of level of good sense that I'd expect from any normal, rational adult, whether or not they had any particular knowledge of gay men. It's just that's a lot better than we might have expected from her, given her determined self-sheltering. It'll be interesting to see if Dillon challenges her on the point, simply because I'd like to see if she has an explanation.brasca wrote:She has a mature clinical understanding of gay sexuality that an experienced gay man lacks and I would guess enough observations of people behaving stupidly even before she moved in with Amber and Dillon.
The knowledge of stupidity probably comes from observing her peers and (especially) her parents. Ask any normal bright irritable 18-year-old (which is functionally what she is).
Nathan is a classic case of denial, yes. The only problem with "sad" is that he's, well, Nathan.themacnut wrote:The kinda sad thing was that Nathan probably believed what he telling Dillon himself - in other words the guy was most likely very much in denial about his sexual orientation. That's part of the reason his story sounded believable enough to Dillon.
Nah, Nathan's just a standard casting couch jockey, direct from Central Casting. Okay as a comedy device, no interest as a character. The only slightly unusual thing about him is that he's bi, and that just shows this is the 21st century rather than the 1950s.TheEighth wrote:I do hope the comic centers on Nathan a bit, I found him interesting back in Ma3.
What is this obsession with wanting to see Nathan try to bang Gary via blackmail? Every bloody time that Nathan is mentioned, up pops that stupid idea with the tedious inevitability of an unloved season. You're talking about a largely-forgotten one-joke character from hundreds of strips ago, who would now appear, if anywhere, in a completely different comic to Gary's usual stamping-ground - and he'd have virtually no way to make such a move, even if he ever even met Gary.Should Nathan meet Gary, I could totally see him trying to get Gary into bed with him by threatening Amber and Dillon's careers.
You are being very silly.
It's notable that, after weeks of putting up with Dillon being impertinent and offensive with no more than token complaints, the one thing that can make her get in his face and yell is him being stupid. She really is pure nerd.FlashD81 wrote:Ruby for the win!
