** OP here, my problem isn't with her symptoms (heavy drinking, depression) its her actions that bother me, early days she was downright threatening to people, regularly actually hitting marten for percived little petty problems, and her big excuse basically amounts to "my dad died and it ruined me" throughout most of the comic, as a sufferer of actual depression, if i pulled any of the crap she pulls, I would downright get my ass beaten or thrown in jail for abuse, which is what she done to marten early days, just marten is too much of spinless git for most of it to actually d anything, and when you are in a group of self centered knobends, nobody notices.

*** To elaborate: She'd been stalking Marten and Faye for some time, and the reason she actually met Marten is because she was smoking in the bar bathroom after being up for four days counting the hairs on her head. Even if those meds were helping her anxiety the effects were...uneven, at best.

** I think it's just a case of Momo being 100% on Marigold's side and therefore being angry at the guy who rejected and upset her, no matter his reason or intent. In the strips that follow, no other character says anything negative about Angus for turning her down, and there's a couple who specifically say that Angus did the right thing. So it's just one character with a considerable bias against the guy, not the whole strip upholding a double standard about men and women (in this case, at least).

** This is exactly why she gets hammered after breaking up with Angus. Remember, [[http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=508 her reason for not dating Marten]] was her inability to rationally deal with the possibility, however remote, of him abandoning her. She's doing better by the time she starts dating Angus, but the prospect of a long-distance relationship inflames those doubts, and she bails. So she's *fully* aware that her choice to break up with him was because of her own insecurities. It's her self-loathing about her self-sabotaging behavior that she's trying to escape by drinking.

* This is something alot of people porbably wonder, but why? why? WHY do people put up with Faye at all? I mean all the shit she does can only be excused for so long, and even then theres pushing your' luck, in fact, the same argument could be applied for Dora but she doesn't have the "excuse" Faye has. personally those two are toxic trainwrecks, but Faye in particular irks me, like when she was with Angus and he had an awesoome super day, getting his dream job and being cool with trying out a LDR (though he made it there and back inside a day so "the city" can't be that far) and she has been supportive up front, but doubtful in the head, then when he breaks the news that "YAY i got my dream job, she RUINS it, by going "see how i was cool with it, I actually super wasn't cool with it, so we are done" basically completely shattering what was probably one of that guys happiest days ever, then she hasthe utter gall to go get hammered like he did the dumping, why would anyone even want to be near her?

to:

** Faye is an alcoholic, and Dora has depression -- both conditions that lead to things like selfish, "it's all about me and my feelings" behavior. In fact, one of the big signs of depression is an extreme self-focus and obsession about ones' own problems over those of others. This doesn't make their behavior any ''better'', but at least explains some of it. Both girls end up losing relationships because of these issues, as happens to many people in real life (Jeph, for instance).

* This is something that's just bugged me ever since the comic was first posted. In [http://www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1631 this] comic, Marigold tries to force herself on Angus, Angus tells her they're just friends, Marigold runs off crying, and Momo flips off Angus! So, it's okay if Marigold does it to Angus, but I presume not the other way around?
