'Taking it the wrong way' is probably a poor choice of words from Shive. I've always assumed it was due to the gay pestering, and Susan having a similar attitude to Justin is probably a minor case of Continuity Drift.

Yeah, yeah it was. But considering how she had said before that she would not be surprised if she walked in on the two of them kissing, and has shown a general lack of shame in insulting Nanase or making fun of her, I could see her still doing it even pre-continuity drift. So, even if I didn't have the comic strip, I prolly would have just gone with that.

"Guys, do you want me to order a pizza?" "Whatever, we don't care." "I already ordered a pizza." "Haha. You think about everything, Nanase."

óclicks egs pornó

And I think it enhances attraction to males. So it would only change sexuality if one was originally a straight male or a lesbian.

Blonde is feminine. Blond is masculine.

Ellen is bisexual, because the ray added an attraction to males to Elliot's heterosexualness.

Ohhhhhh.

Yeah. There's a lot of these edits then.

That isn't porn. That is EGS, if Shive would be honest with himself.

Well, to be fair, I think she's supposed to be coplaying as Risky Boots◊ from the Shantea series... But... You know what? You're absolutely right there is no need for that crap.

  1. 373...I don't think he was stereotyping anybody. It's just Nanase's mother in particular who seems to be a huge bitch.

See this thread. Asian parents have the stereotype of being...well...exactly what is shown. The stereotype is prominent enough that I can report on its accuracy. The problem is, not only is he doing it for no other reason then to inflict Nanase with pointless wangst, but he also does it horribly wrong.

I'm not disputing that there's a stereotype for it.

I just assumed that Shive was just saying that Nanase's mom was a controlling bitch.

Characterization that makes no sense in these given strips, since she lets her off so easily.
