[up] Masochistic following because of the cringe, plus refusing to let go the empty hope that some day Tats will come to his senses and in 2040 we will be here reminiscing about that crazy decade when he went bananas.

[up][up] I'm honestly not even sure what we're still doing here sometimes.

Just watching the ongoing disaster ...

He did an old post way back then about Linus waiting for the "Great President" to come out of the pumpkin patch. It doesn't really make that much sense now. I think it is him just saying that he's not a Trump supporter because most of detractors are saying he is.

Oh God. Why do I know about this? I wasted so much of my life. How did I ever get laid?

I'm just surprised she didn't run Linus over. Xanthe even calls him "Bro."

Progress? Is there actually a male out there she connects with on some level, even if it's a shared belief in a demonic pumpkin that yearly rises from its patch to hunt the children of the neighborhood?

I'm gonna imagine Linus has actually spent eleven years (minus two weeks) waiting for that pumpking to hatch.

Is she complimenting him or backhandedly insulting him?

[up]Given her track record, I'm leaning to the latter.

So I just caught up with the subreddit for the sake of Pettyfest (I don't bother following the real comic anymore unless I follow a link from here) and while stopping to see a question thread, I saw something interesting.

Apparently Celina turned out to be besties with an actual Nazi and ghosted the actual Sinfest Forum when it came out?

Is that true?

[up][up] Xanthe has such a record of being a total ass to everyone with a penis (including serving Linus's fellow Peanuts character Charlie Brown with a restraining order for having a crush on the red-haired girl) I'm finding it impossible to see this interaction as positive.

I just now realised that Trump is supposed to be the great pumpkin that finally came alive. Pettyfest is doing a better job at being funny and sorting out the message than Tats is, as usual.

From the looks of things, we're going to have an entire damned month of October/Halloween/pumpkin spice comics. Yes, a month of dumb filler beats TERF and Handmaids and zombies.

How far you've sunk, Tatsuya.

If I recall correctly (and I might not) it was a different venue, possibly her Tumbler account or something on reddit or a Tumblr forum, and not something specifically about Sinfest.

Good call, firewriter. I didn't even think of her being patronizing. It would be like she is saying "Ha, keep waiting for your perfect president."

However, it could be that Tatsuya is ALSO waiting for what he would say is a good president and is voicing that through Xanthe. But as the rest of you have pointed out, Tatsuya does NOT do a good job of making that clear.

At least his critics seem to be better at giving his stuff context than HE is. XD

Also, I am LOVING all the different Pettyfest perspectives. Garlavan, I'm loving your work by the way!

...how strange. I wonder if those doing the mocking will one day be more popular than the source material! The hecklers are more entertaining to watch than It-Girl. XD

I would love to see the strips that Tats must have prepared in 2016 in anticipation of Hillary Clinton's ascension to the presidency.

That old Linus strip was in the lead-up to the 2008 election. I thought Tats thought that Barackstar WAS a Great President. So has Linus still been waiting the whole time, or did he go back to waiting again three years ago?

Oct 8th 2019 at 11:35:29 AM

[up] Warning! Assumes coherent thought by Tats.

Oct 8th 2019 at 12:50:49 PM

[up][up] Old Tats probably thought Obama hung the moon in the sky (Although several strips later showed that he thought Obama was maybe too idealistic and would be unable to enact all the change he promised), new Tats probably thinks Obama was too accepting of trans people and also he's a man.

I remembered reading more articles on Tatsuya (if you all might have noticed, I have a really strong memory when it comes to quoting movies, songs, and recalling scenes in comics; part of my family upbringing; my wife thinks I'm a freak. ;P) and it mentioned that he was very disillusioned with Obama because he was on board with the bail outs that Bush was doing.

So, thinking about it now, I suppose that some of the people who said the opposite of what I did were right. I was calling him a communist (because, in all honestly, THAT tends to be the desired system of government for radfems due to "across the board equality" as it is written on paper) and they told me I was reading too much into it. In case of letting businesses fail, he is a pretty dyed in the wool capitalist, but in terms of health care and social services he's probably more left. Essentially, he felt that big businesses shouldn't be saved by money taken by government from consumers who didn't even buy their product, which I actually agree with him on. I'm sure that his beliefs have changed (the article I remember was around the 2009-2010 era).

Redmess, I think you might have been one of the ones who brought that up. Kudos and point to you.

Anyway, what I have noticed is that his pictures have been taken down from the old articles, some of his old articles have been taken down as well, etc.

I wonder if he legit might have been hassled in real life by opposition. I doubt to the amount he claims in the comic, but for those who might have known him on a more personal scale I bet they gave him some hate mail.

Okay, we get it, those drones are completely helpless against the powers of your Mary Sues, Tats. Can we move on already?

You can put robots through all the pain and humiliation you want, as long as they don't look like women.

The drones are so pathetically weak at this point that their treatment is reading like some sort of messed up torture porn.

Have you noticed that Tats seems to have dropped the fembots from Sinfest?

Perhaps Tats finally realized that saying "If an entity has the form of a woman, then that entity IS a woman!" completely undermines his TERF dogma.

Weren't there other drone types being used too? I clearly remember Milton made crawling, land based ones as well.
