* IdiotPlot: While a lot of the storylines depend on the fact that few of the characters are terribly bright, the sequence in 2016 where Tracy seeks to involve Gary in one of her camgirl performances without him knowing turns this UpToEleven, as it depends on her stupidly not just asking the obliging Gary for help, Gary stupidly falling for her contorted justifications, and the onlooking Jim likewise stupidly believing everything he hears.



** "Gary's Giving James a Blowjob" arc is widely panned by fans, who accuse its story of being [[ForgotAboutHisPowers insultingly stupid]] even by the comic's ''amiably uncomplicated'' standards. For context: When Tracy asks Gary, a grown, patently heterosexual man despite everything else he's been through, to give her boyfriend a blowjob, Gary simply can't find the nerve to say No to Tracy's face. What follows is then a story of a grown man trying to fake a blowjob while keeping the appearance of a friendly guy to his coworkers. Also, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking the punchline isn't all that funny]].
*** And the beginning of Volume Ten brings back this plotline, with James wanting another blowjob from Gary. He still cannot say "no" to Tracy, infuriating many readers.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The writers probably never spoke to any actual trans people when creating the only trans character, Senna. She acts more like a cisgendered gay male drag queen.

** Zii is this to a number of fans, due to never facing any sort of repercussion for her actions pre-CharacterDevelopment.
** Yuki for some. She too rarely seems to face any real consequences for her violence and self-absorption.

* UnfortunateImplications:
** The comic's more or less total disregard for any arbitrary ideas about "{{karma}}", especially relating to some of Zii's sexual escapades in early strips, has inspired some criticism; see, for example, [[http://agoutirex.livejournal.com/142290.html this review]].
** Some readers seem to think that, along with it's sister comic ''Webcomic/StickyDillyBuns'', this one implies that bisexuals are [[ButNotTooBi gays/lesbians in denial]]. Quite how this fits with eight volumes and counting of extensively bisexual activity from characters such as Zii, Matt, and Sonya, none of whom seem inclined to give up their many cheerful other-sex encounters, is an interesting question.
