With all the debate (and righteous feminist rage) that's going on about the dismissal of 'shippers for being irrational and over-emotional (you know, code words for "female"), I was reminded of a cartoon muskrat_john  drew back in 2003, soon after 'End Of Days' was first broadcast. I feel it sums up my own thoughts on the subject pretty well. :-)



Dork Tower 2003

(For people with images turned off or using screenreaders, the script:)

(From off-camera:)  Bwaaaaaa! That's soooooooo sad!
IGOR: What's up with that?
CARSON: Matt invited Kayleigh over to watch the second-to-last episode ever of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
IGOR: Ooooo. Bad move. With its soap opera plotlines and dark romance, Buffy is a show women can really get too emotionally caught up in...
CARSON: Women?

(Cut to Matt's living room. A bemused Kayleigh is comforting him as he sobs.)

Thanks a lot for reminding me. Now I'll be over-emotional all day. :-P

The sequel to this cartoon, published the following week after the very last episode of 'Buffy', has a heartbroken Matt clinging to his TV and sobbing "I love you!". (There is, of course, a speech bubble over the TV replying "No you don't, but thanks for saying it." *g*)

'Righteous feminist rage'? Huh? I don't know what you're talking about.

Word to the comic. :)

Oh - that was swell! I am sending a link to my hubby, to show that he is not alone in his sentiment after all. :)

Thank you.
