I don't expect to see Angel or Dillion go off to jail It's a comic. The first part, was people just generally seem to forget the DNA aspect of things. It's one thing they haven't been able to change yet. When they do, maybe the world will change with it.Maechris wrote:PUBERTY GROWTH HORMONES ACTIVITY OF GLANDS HIP BONE STRUCTURE SECONDARY CHARACTERSTICS MUSCLE DEVELOPMENT ARGGHHHHHHHJoybuzzerX wrote:DNA tests and which prison to be sent to, as well, which with Ruby filming on her phone, could be relevant to Angel first attacking and Dillion assaulting a female (regardless of him being assaulted first).Miora wrote:Genitals and gender are only relevant for sex and reproduction.
Yeah, when you're in the biology/chemistry or medical departments, accepting the above statement to its logical extreme proves almost impossible
But, yeah, when it comes to general personality, treatment we should extend towards a person we're romantically uninvolved and uninterested in, and when we're talking about virtues and flaws of fictional characters, this statement should at least be strived towards.
Angel's an impulsive, unforgiving and obsessed individual, but there are some positive sides to their character that mostly only people they're neutral or friendly towards get to see.
Well, to be fair, this is a comic that updates twice a week and a year's worth of comics is a month or less time. Look at the first year or two of M3. All of it happened within a month of the M3 universe time. When comics don't update daily, time moves slow, while the reader will think time should be going by faster (because it is for them).Zayzie wrote:(I tend to lurk the forum threads for the comics rather than participate in them, so apologies for appearing out of nowhere)
Myself (cis-woman) and many other women I know have actually used "dickhead" or "dick" as an insult to each other before, and I get called it a lot. I never actually thought about it much until I took an economics class where I was informed that the terms are used to insult people based on gender norms/roles.
Insults referencing cis-male anatomy tend to be geared towards insulting a person's rashness, foolishness, manipulative tendencies, overbearing tendencies, shamelessness--very extreme traits associated with men's roles in a relationship or a society. Insults referencing cis-female tend to be associated with weakness, submissiveness, fragility, being delicate, vain, promiscuous, etc. Some insults are often interchangeable while others might be specific to one gender like "whore". In regards to the comic, Dillon's lack of skill in articulating his true feelings into a thoughtful insult, resorted in him referring to Angel as a "dickhead" when he probably meant something like "you are a manipulative, overbearing and obsessed jerk" (which is still hypocritical regardless of whether Angel or Dillon said it).
That being said, I didn't much anything about this Angel/Dillon/Zii fight funny, save for Zii's part in all this. And today's strip just makes me cringe a lot, and I really didn't think the punchline was funny.
Both Dillon and Angel are being so incredibly sexist and (unwittingly) self-degrading, especially in this strip, and the conversation, obectively makes very little sense. They're fighting over Jerzy and how their definition of "gay" applies to him, and bashing qualities, perceived as girl-specific, in the process. I don't even understand why Angel even continues to hate Dillon, he's not even trying to get Jerzy back, and Jerzy hasn't been unfaithful at all (unless you count that calendar spread with Dillon, though I don't think anything really happened). Angel could very easily be the better person here by being satisfied with having Jerzy, but, by even getting into this fight, and going as far to go after Zii, it's obvious Angel is just as insecure about their relationship with Jerzy as Dillon was.
Like, at this point, I just want Jerzy to move to Australia and get into a monogamous relationship with any other person living on the planet while I finish off strangling these two butt wipes with my bare hands. I've got enough of their Jerzy-specific angst to use up an average person's liftetime supply of facepalms and incoherent rage.
However, kudos to Giz for making characters with enough personality to provoke such an intense emotional response though. I don't usually get hung up on characters like that, especially ones I don't like.
