Steal My Sunshine by VanHeist Steal My Sunshine by VanHeist
So...yeah, not an especially funny (or fun) comic to post, but I felt like this was kind of an important statement to make. Or something to point out, anyway. I felt a pretty lousy putting Didi in this situation, but life can be lousy sometimes.

This is sort of a companion/alternate piece to , and I drew this one because, well, as fun as it is to imagine Gogo responding to this sort of crap on Didi's behalf in her usual manner, the fact is, this is how such a situation would go down in a more real way--absent of an avenging force like Gogo. (And the situation depicted here is pretty damned clean, really). It's destructive, demoralizing, and usually goes unpunished or unanswered. And it hurts when you're occasionally reminded that people can deliberately punch the joy and beauty right out of life with a few words.

I'll try not to make a habit of downer stuff like this, but this is one of those things in life that sticks in my craw.

peace :salute:

given that men target women no matter their state of apparel (and i have even seen many men in certain countries make comments about women around in full Hijab about "whats under the covers") , it most definitely is not the woman but men who need to fix their shit up.

It is not the fault of the woman, but the person who is objectifying her."dont do this or you'll be objectified" is bullshit because no matter what you wear or do, their behavior has shown that your SOLE GODDAMN existence is enough to attract such attention and get objectified if such attitudes are not dealt with.

The victim blaming "asking for it" is bullshit, because the perpetrators are the one's performing the damn act.

Nasty. When a woman can't go out with such comments, abd men wonder why women act all 'Bitchy?'

Well Gee, maybe it's because you treat them like slabs of meat!

Like to go Gogo on those Dastards! By bustng their bones!

Agreed. She does really look splendid, but jeering at girls usually doesn't make them happier.

I was shown this in a discussion on Feminism. great piece, with an important message. sometimes, we all get objectified, and women have it the worst. being treated like you aren't even human is the worst. people have a tendency to forget that they aren't entitled to another person's attributes just because they want it.

Why am I not surprised there's wall of text replies everywhere in the comment section? Not that it's a bad thing-in fact, it's rather wonderful seeing people debate about this.

But yeah in my home-town, a lot of guys will complain that they never see a cute girl [in a skirt] and this comic kind of explains why.

It's just sad how it's more socially acceptable to wear pajamas/sweats in public than wearing a nice dress.
