Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedHero: The Whole Sisterhood. They are bigoted towards all men, hypocritical about gender equality, and partake in violent acts that are borderline terrorism. The narrative however tries to paint them as freedom fighters who are trying to fight for women's rights in a patriarchal society.
** Post-Sisterhood Monique, who is like the Sisterhood treated like a voice for the feminist cause, is frequently shown as being misandrist towards men, self-righteous, almost gets her girlfriend in trouble at work occasionally, and worse is how she has treated Slick since she's had her personality change. She cut him out of her life after he tried to give some sensible, but badly worded advice then proceeded to [[VictimBlaming victim blame]] him for his evil side's actions even though he had no control over him.

** If this world really is patriarchal and glorifies womanizing, then why would a man care if his financial transactions with a prostitute were leaked online?

** The Patriarchy plot, not necessarily because it's a hard plot to swallow in itself, but because of how suddenly and powerfully it appeared, and also when compared to the strip before. The main issue now seems to be members of the Sisterhood saying blatantly offensive things, like advocating unprovoked violence against men, when compared to their previous characterization of being a small Jerk Sue organization. Because of this, along with the outright demonization of men that would make a LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek writer shake their heads (such as having Xanthe get bombarded with garbage by a small army of background strawmen and then claiming in an attempted TearJerker that "male allies don't exist"), male readers who would otherwise be supportive of the storyline feel the strip is actively pushing them away. The strip has even been likened to some of the more clueless social justice blogs from {{Tumblr}} in comic strip form.

* BaseBreaker: Xanthe, and the whole Sisterhood plot in general for stealing the spotlight from most of the cast in general. To some it has been labeled as when the comic [[JumpingTheShark Jumped the Shark]]. Her degree of polarizing effect is so bad that she can accurately be compared to [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Sasuke]] (stateside only) and [[Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick Miko]] in terms of how divisive she is.

* AssPull: Monique being gay as of 2016. True, her relationship with Absinthe was developing from quite some time, but 'Nique's initial characterization included obvious interest in men, for ''over ten years''. With excluding even the possibility of her being bisexual, it seems like the author thinks that showing any interest in men is a sign of submitting to the patriarchy and rejecting should be every TRUE FEMINIST's ideal.

* MoralEventHorizon: Tangerine and the Fembot effectively [[MindRape Destroyed a man's mind]] and the [[BalefulPolymorph turned him into a frog]] and then Cheered about doing it.

** The rogue Fembot, nicknamed "Maverick" as [[{{TakeThat}} an insult to both her and the Sisterhood's lack of respect for ThreeLawsCompliant]]. Mainly due to her violent approach being depicted as right despite the lack of adequete threshold for Zeroth Law behaviour.

** A mild one to the walling off of the Reality Zone has Fyoosh decide to, at first, climb up the wall, then later simply creates a tunnel, into the Reality Zone so she can draw the much more peaceful scenery there, slowly staying there longer and longer.

** The Fuchsia/Criminy romance, although a quick look at the [[Characters/SinFest Characters page]], the [[Awesome/{{Sinfest}} Awesome page]], the [[Heartwarming/{{Sinfest}} Heartwarming page]], and even the [[Webcomic/{{Sinfest}} main page]] will tell you that it seems to be the most referenced, popular story arc in the comic. TropesAreNotBad, especially {{heartwarming|moments}} ones.
** The Monique/Absinthe pairing. While it's intended to be seen as a cute and happy relationship, the two didn't receive nearly as much focus and development as Fuchsia and Criminy did, so the relationship feels slightly forced. Made a bit worse by the lack of closure over Monique's relationship with Slick.

** And on that note, with Seymour becoming a whole lot nicer recently (he even brings snacks to Lil' E and Pebbles) he's been rescued from the heap as well.
