There is a fine line between Flint molesting Cindi (or something to that effect) and being a good supportive friend that is not outside of their range of what a good friend should do. I believe that Flint is doing the right thing, but I could get how people think he should have walked away as soon as Cindi said no. So I don't need to hear anything about how I am making it seem like some rape apologist thing or something. You know, when I started this comic, I never thought I would have to say something like that, because my readers tend to be logical, intelligence human beings who don't need it spelled out. That isn't the world we live in any more though. Now, what Flint is doing, could be considered a form of sexual violence. Ignore that fact that real rape is happening and calling this rape is utterly trivializing to what happens to people on a daily basis. Because it is much fucking easier to call Flint a nazi or something because he is a white male than actually talk about the issues. Or to make him look like the bad guy even when literally he is doing everything right because of course men are at fault for everything. We sure as fuck can't talk about religion being a corrupting influence, right? But its ok, I CAN talk about it, because I rank pretty fucking high on the oppression Olympics scale, which means nothing because I would just be some white person anyways. Doesn't matter the content of my words or actions so long as I can be reduced to nothing more than a set of attributes, right? Ignore that the entire SJW movement seems to have it out that we are not PEOPLE and instead reductionist singular attributes that define us and it goes entirely in the face of everything I try to do here! Just ignore it! Because all that matters is that Annie is trans! Not the content of her character! And that Lexi is black! Not the content of HER character! It is SO much easier to ignore REAL issues and just be assholes to each other instead of having a real conversation! Look! Look how Flint called Oscar a HE without asking his pronouns! THAT is what we should be talking about! FUCKING IGNORE THE REAL ISSUES! LETS FOCUS ON THAT!

How dare you make me log in! Just to say this scene reminds me of my Bob. He's forcibly hugged me into acceptance more times than I can count. The best kinds of hugs are the ones you don't know you need :') hope you're doing okay gk, yesterday looked like a yikes. Here's one of those hugs for you too!

@DewOrSomething: There was some goings-on yesterday that prompted me to turn off guest accounts. I apologize for that. There was a longer goings-on over at Drunk Duck that made me turn it on off over there, and now I needed to over here too.

...I don't like being touched. I've been told it is an autism thing. I think it is a body image thing. Whatever. But I appreciate the thought.

I'm doing fine. In 4 hours I get to go home and get very, very drunk, as usual, and things will be even better.

I wish I would get hugs like that. I can actually feel myself slipping away again as I type this. Not a lot about me is good but I still feel certain ways and struggle to curb what ones would consider toxic masculinity and just be a person entitled to have emotions and not appear weak.

@JaxRhapsody: I have my VERY severe doubts that there is little that is good about you. I've never had a negative interaction with you. Unless you are being a great person online and then going in to the real world and lighting kids on fire? Thats usually the opposite of how this works.

If you mean there is a lot about your situation that is not good, then leave Louisville and come to Canada and we will eat garlic shrimp. Doesn't matter what my coworker says, I am perfectly healthy enough to eat shrimp right now. Wonder if they make shrimp pizza. Ok, how about this. Come up for Feb 9th, all my friends will be over and we can make garlic shrimp pizzas. It'll rock. Or suck. Either way, then I can judge you in person if you are good or not.

I utterly hate the term toxic masculinity because of how it has been hijacked and mangled by people who want to use it instead of having a good discussion. It is a real problem. It is one of the first things I addressed in the comic, how it isn't ok to be a girl or show weakness. It is one of the reasons why transwomen tend to die more often than transmen from suicide (here, have a grain of salt the size of a boulder).

@GreenKrog: I guess the best way to describe me is I have pretty much all the good and bad of an Aries- chaotic nuetral. I feel like Karmas whipping boy and anything that remotely brings me joy is just strife in disguise. Like my life is punishment for what I did in a past life(ives). I know I'm no paragon, I can be pretty cold-hearted, snide and shady, yet I still do things out of kindness and whatnot. Seems like the outcome is always the same; I'm not allowed happiness that isn't fleeting and I'm destined to be alone.
