Cat Got Your Tongue by Chloe C.

So this comic (that I drew in 2012) suddenly reappeared on the dA front page, then imgur, and apparently 9gag now. It’s quite fun when old comics suddenly get attention again! Glad to see the source to the deviantart page when people post it :) thanks!

(though I’m not used to lots of comments by guys going “gotta fap to that”. I’ll just stick with the nice dA comments.)

If someone cares enough about you

They will find time to spend with you, even if it’s 5 minutes out of the day. “Busy” or not.

YES

NO

It’s just not true.

If the trust is reciprocal, than you don’t need to talk every day. Sometimes people are busy. lives happen. Jobs happen. People happen. It’s harmful to friendships and relationships alike to uphold this sort of paradigm; if they care about you they will still care about you no matter how busy they are. And if you trust them you’ll know that they still care even if they can’t squeeze out some time for you.

everybody fucking cut it out ok

Except the view of the average misogynist is accurate.

…How do you know this?Is it just because it’s ‘common knowledge’ that “the average misogynist is a disgusting neckbeard”?

Look, this idea is actually pretty dangerous to women as a class. People already brush off rapist men because “oh but he’s such a nice boy,” “but he’s such a funny guy,” spreading the meme that the “average misogynist” is fat and ill-groomed and is embarrassing in public (and therefore will illicit disgust, hahahaha visceral disgust correlates with evil, this is totally not encouraging forms of bigotry that use disgust at “ugliness” to self-propagate, this is totally enlightened and progressive and not a horrifyingly medieval take on “how to tell someone is evil”) only HELPS TO HIDE the majority of misogynists, most of whom are already very good at using manipulative and abusive tactics to hide their worst qualities from society at large.

This kind of idea makes it harder to recognize that yes, that hilarious director, that actor or musician with the winning smile, really did do those horrible things.

And before anyone says it, yes I am a fucking girl. I’ve even had a guy who was, in fact, a literal brony-slash-anime-fanboy creep on me in college, getting weirdly personal-friendly with me and showing me his “waifus” when I only wanted to express a mutual interest in pastel horse worldbuilding. (Though, for accuracy’s sake, he looked more like this guy than like this guy.) But I think it’s scarier is I could have a conversation with a totally “normal” guy right afterwards, and have absolutely no idea if they saw me as a person, a vaguely sentient subhuman, or a piece of fucking meat. The socially-awkward nerd-subculture types are easy targets, but they’re not the root of misogyny, nor the most common or insidious vectors of it.

[This is in addition to, not as a replacement of, Roachpatrol’s original point, which is that it’s pretty shitty to say your idealogical enemies are ugly and loathesome-looking in order to make them them more hatable, especially whenever you rely on fatphobia to do so. You are basically saying “there is a positive correlation between being fat/ugly and being a horrible person” and that’s…messed up? I thought more people recognized this was messed up?]

Thanks, dude, this is a great take-down. Cruelty is insidious and utterly self-defeating to an equality movement—you go after the wrong targets, you start doing the easy thing instead of the right one. It’s fucked up. It’ll fuck you up. You have to keep in mind that even your enemies are people.
