** Joe fancies himself one of these, but—intentionally or not—he's pretty bad at it, claiming to value consent while clearly not quite understanding what it means. He continues trying to get Joyce in bed during their date long past the point where it's clear she's uncomfortable with it, [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2013/comic/book-4/01-the-only-dope-for-me-is-you/harness/ he needs to be snapped at by Sarah to stop making eyes at her despite her own angry eyes being an unsubtle cue]], and http://www.dumbingofage.com/2012/comic/book-2/02-choosing-my-religion/casualbang/ his entire list of times it's not okay to have sex with a girl is "when she's drunk" and "when she's crying."]] His supposed ethics also don't stop him from treating the women around him like objects, keeping an actual list of the women on campus by vague description and hotness rating and distributing it via RSS.

** A lot less pushy than his mainverse counterpart was at that age. Case in point, [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2013/comic/book-4/01-the-only-dope-for-me-is-you/harness/ he actually does understand when no means no.]]
** He actually has [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2012/comic/book-2/02-choosing-my-religion/casualbang/ a list]] of times when it's not appropriate to hit on a girl.

* EthicalSlut: In her own mind.

to:

* EthicalSlut: In EthicalSlut: Roz's sexual ethics are pretty strong, making a point of—for instance—asking Joe if it's okay to tape their encounter. She also goes out of her own mind.way to promote safe sex and counseling for rape victims. Her ethics on things that aren't sex are a bit iffy, however, as she's often been mean to Joyce when it's clear she's doing more harm than good, and may or may not have been planning to out her bisexual older sister.

** This gets deconstructed hard in book seven, as Leslie has to struggle with being attracted to someone who actively supports homophobic policies to get ahead. Likewise, Robin is having a very hard time denying that she's not straight.

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Subverted hard and so far the only Brown to still have blonde hair to avert this.

* GenreSavvy: As Joyce puts it:
-->'''Joyce:''' Joe says it's inevitable, and, well, Joe's often pretty on the ball.

** [[spoiler: Turns out to be a subversion. He's never had a threesome, he just likes to talk big.]]

* AgeLift: Downplayed. While most of the characters in DOA are aged down compared to their originals, Ethan was noted to be the oldest of the Shortpacked cast (minus Galasso and the parents). In DOA Ethan's reverted to be around Amber and Mike's ages while Robin and Leslie are older than him.
