Taken aback? Relieved is more like it. I may not have been clear that my question was not rhetorical. There were plenty of people on these here forums who had no issues that Amber sexually assaulted Gary, because "he consented after the fact" and "but it was funny!" For me, it was despicable and put me off the comic for a long time. So I am very relieved that you, too, found it terrible.TheResult wrote:
Uh, yes. That was also a terrible thing to do. I also think it's really awful when characters are perfectly okay to take advantage of Sandra while she's drunk. I find the actions of many characters in the Pixie Trix line-up to be pretty awful. Do you disagree? Do you think those things were okay? Are you taken aback that I find that sort of behavior deplorable?
As for SOTR, I love the art but have huge issues with the storyline(s). You brought up a big one. I generally read the updates, sigh, and move on.
OK, I think this is just a disconnect. You mentioned relationships. I don't consider Dillon to have been in a relationship with anyone except for Matt. He had a couple of dates with Jerzy, which to me doesn't connote a relationship, per se. YMMV, though. And with that in mind, my comment was entirely about Dillon's relationship with Matt. He was led to believe that it was monogamous, yet Matt was cheating. I interpreted your comment to mean that Dillon had no right to expect monogamy of people he dated. We got our wires crossed there, because I wasn't talking about Jerzy at all, and you were. My bad.You worded that kind of.. strangely, so I'm not actually sure what you're even talking about. But Dillon went into a jealous rage when someone else flirted with Jerzy, despite the fact that- within a very short amount of time from that point- Dillon himself had been tricking men at his pool to grope him, and was doing it entirely for sexual reasons. So yes, Dillon holds the people he dates to a higher standard than he holds himself. He's shown several times over that he's a huge flirt with other men, even when he's in a relationship, but that he hates the idea of the person he's dating flirting with somebody else. He's a huge hypocrite.
I genuinely don't know what you're talking about here. I am not being sarcastic at all when I ask if I maybe missed some strips or if these are strips that were made as part of the print run Kickstarter?"Binding"? What does being "binding" have to do with anything? He told her not to, and he threw a hissy fit about it, like an entitled child-- even though he was taken. It doesn't matter if he has the power to actually stop her or not, that's still shitty, because they're supposed to be friends and because he was in a relationship, and that's not something you do while you're in a relationship.
At the start of SDB, Dillon has given up the Gary dream. He has come to grips with the fact that Gary doesn't want him in that way, and it's Amber who (possibly playfully) calls him a liar when Dillon says he has no problem if she goes after Gary.
If you're talking about Dillon's time in the MA3-verse, he did not start openly crushing on Gary until after things disintegrated with Matt. He did not start dating seriously again until SDB started. So I'm not really sure to what you are referring with the hissy fit while he was in a relationship - when he threw the hissy fit, he wasn't seeing anyone, and when he started seeing someone, he threw no hissy fit that I can recall.
