Heh. Jackenape. Trying to write a web comic that doesn't have swears in it makes a person get creative!

And I once again spending a page on why cheerleading isn't stupid and shouldn't be looked down on.
Though, this is quite relevant in basically all things - both those that are a societal 'norm' like sports, and those that aren't - like Magic the Gathering.

Look up John Finkel. He is a card game god. Yet this c*nting b*tch judged because it wasn't 'normal'. Because he uses his brain instead of his body. If he was a hockey player who won these things, would she be such a c*nt about it? NO. Because she has been programmed to judge nerds, just like Flint has been programmed to judge cheerleaders. Have I brought this up before? Seems like something I probably have. It really bothers me when people judge each other on stuff like this.

Annie has damn good reasons to be a cheerleader, and very few of them have to do with cheering.

Oh, and yeah, Mal doesn't have his binder on. From what I've been told, binding is about as painful as badly tucking. CAn you blame the guy for hanging out while hanging out?

Not really painful. Just squishy. Unless your binder is 2 sizes too small it shouldn't hurt. And if its that small, it won't give the right amount of squish, youll get weird shapes and red marks. But as much as he binds, he probably needs to take it off as soon as he gets home. 8 hours or more and your ribs hate you the next day :P

What's wrong with profanity? Though I always thought TV dubbed profanity was amusing, especially innl older movies, adverse to just muting it. Sigh; Sam Jacksons "mother lover," or use of the dub, "suckah," for, well, you get it.

I found it odd that in Scott Pilgrim, the only word not used(manga)/censored(movie), was the word; fuck.

@Jax Rhapsody: People tend to use profanity as a crutch. One of my former friends is a good writer, but she used far more profanity than how people even talk. It made it seem like it was written by a young teen instead of a 3X woman.

Besides, if I ever had enough fans to care, I would make a book. And the book would be relegated to specific areas based on swearing, should it ever be in retail.

Edit: I forgot to mention that swearing makes people sound more generic. Instead of having character traits in how they talk, they become just like everyone else.
It also helps that if I ever NEED to use a swear, it will have a lot of gravity behind it.

Yeah, I remember back in 9th grade, the english teacher told us we could use profanity, I bet everything written seemed like an episode of the Sopranos. The key is not using it too much, and figuring out how a character would do it, based on their personality. It can get generic, if not, and just used as filler.

I have a character in my story; Zerophilia, that never curses, until a chapter in the second book, towards his father. None of the characters to witness, had any idea, he could curse. The kid is gay, and after his mother died, he remembers her by dressing like her(kinda), and taking hrr first name. His dad is always throwing his make-up, and clothes, and whatnot away.

Either way; I get what you're saying about it. There are other words to use, that could even be more effective than just calling somebody a shithead. I didn't want you to think I was critisizing your work.

@Jax Rhapsody: Oh no, not at all. You've perfectly illustrated what I meant by limiting swearing. The same can be said for racial and gender slurs. The later I have a severe problem with because I can't seem to thesaurus properly these days.
Even if you had been criticizing, it would have been completely fair. After all, people these days swear. We just do. So why don't the WF characters, right?
