Just in case anyone is wondering, that was sarcasm.
Art is art. If it offends you, it's probably art. If you hate something just because it exists, or want to smash the author, then it's almost certainly art. Apparently the tools at wikidot have little better to do than WhiteKnight for Christian Offensiveness Police and the Feminazi Fools, also known as the FF, which I can only abbreviate here.
The first three "reviews" by this wiki site give one pause. This explains why wiki sucks so hard. This explains why no professor wants to allow students to quote wiki as a source. It also is a beautiful example of just how damn stupid some liberals are. Hey, I'm a liberal, so there. They piss me off, m'kay? Spineless jellyfish, afraid of anything remotely intelligent, edgy, or funny, they're best at bending over for republicans and fascists.
These hit-pieces are portrayed as reviews, when really it's just hate speech. How dare anyone, male or female, draw women in any way that we can object to - that appears to be the primary theme of every complaint ... I mean review on wikidot.
Without any artistic skill themselves, these morons have taken it upon themselves to rate artists for such insanely vapid things as 'sensitivity to women' and 'human rights.' Yes, because comic book artists are so well known for their ovens, genocide, and killing of harmless princesses that are only riding daddies ponies for the afternoon and dressing up like barbies at the age of forty.
Sorry, I toggled the sarcasm switch to turbo.
Wapsi Square is one of the comics they 'review', and this is one of several comics which makes it quite clear that these FFs just like to hate. They don't care that they're villifying a feminist. Wapsi is drawn by a man who has such respect for women that he portrays them as highly intelligent, independent, powerful, and barely even neurotic persons with male counterparts who are virtually helpless without them. That's pretty damn feminist in my book. I can't see what the hell the FFs on wikidot are objecting too... until I read further down.
The skinny waists. THAT'S IT! In several reviews they also gripe about "unnatural" figures of women. So, apparently, if you're Feminist, you have to be a big fattie. Beach ball shape, or at a minimum, a pear. Sorry, all Native American, African, Asian, and Northern European women - you are not natural. You can't be skinny, thin, have firm breasts, and be feminist. That's the main thrust of wikidot's arguments by their cadre of Feminazis.
Being as Wapsi is based on REAL WOMEN [if the FFs had read much, assuming they can really read], if they had any brains they'd have noticed that the creator is paying homage to dear friends and even ex girlfriends. The star of the comic is his ex. I hardly entertain such gracious and generous thoughts about MY ex, I can assure you. Hot death comes to mind first, under a slowly grinding train car derailing into her cheap car and cheap boyfriend, where she tastes her own blood mixed with fuel... but I digress.
Wapsi Square is, as most of the other assailed comics on wikidot, completely harmless and not at all offensive. It's pretty much work safe no matter who you work for. Even Disney would be unlikely to have a problem with this comic. There's not much to 'tame down' or censor. Nothing, really, that I can find in it that is gratuitous, insulting, demeaning, or even failing to be respectful. There is zero nudity, humor is woman to woman or with the male as the victim, and the only character who gets mistreated is a little male troll demon. I'd characterize that as a simile for penis on any day.
Though I am far from a huge fan of Wapsi, it is slow and hard to follow, with story lines that just don't interest me, I just can't find that any of the other complaints about it are even the slightest bit true. Beware of wiki, lesson one. Beware of wiki people who blog self-righteously without cause, or rally against some invisible enemy that's not out to get them. These FFs on wikidot are the "Birthers" of the comic world.
I'm rarely so annoyed by plain stupidity as I am with the FFs. They damage their own gender in a blind rage, because the one thing that they really can't stand is a woman who doesn't look like them. Fat.
I've got a few pounds of my own, but I don't hate good looking men, because that'd be insane. It's no ones fault but my own how I look, that and good old genetics which can only be blamed on my parents. That won't do any good to complain about because I'm glad I was born. I don't hate my parents, although I could - they are racists, and I don't hate myself. I just work out more and shop more carefully. Hey, I lost an inch this winter. Yay me.
Women in America are insane by most standards, when it comes to this Feminism stuff. Look ladies, you've been equal for at least 60 years now. None of you are likely to have been alive when women could not vote or work a "man's" job. You can do whatever the hell you want to, and we'll happily cheer you on! There simply IS no repression. My girlfriend is a highly intelligent engineer. I think she rocks. But, she's not a feminist. She's a humanist. "It's not right to put one sex before the other."
I think that sums it up pretty well. Thanks, honey.
