The whole jealousy thing feels like it came out of nowhere and I'm kinda not really digging it.
Marigold's a ridiculously insecure nerd who somehow found a boyfriend. It makes sense that she be defensive of any attention her boyfriend gets, and if it annoys you then at least she's making a concentrated effort to swallow her insecurities when she knows she's being irrational.

She was this way with momo as well. I think she might just be possessive. She is attempting to deal though so good on her i guess?
She's a very insecure girl, with only one or two friends and a recently-acquired boyfriend. I'm amazed it took so long for the jealousy to show up.
Wasn't that Raven?
Im pretty sure that was Faye.
Faye made the thing and Raven upgraded it to be phase-shifting.
Oh yeah I forgot that Raven was also some sort of Cloud Cuckoo Lander genius.
That's fine. Jeph just forgot about Raven in general.
Full disclosure, I actually forgot about Raven too.

In which Emily somehow makes a nice hot cup of pure liquid math.
Better than a steaming cup of nice liquid moth

#3934 I like the subtle second punchline.
Guy looks like he's Elliot's less buff cousin.

Sheesh Renee, why don't you tell your internet hookups to not walk around in their underwear in front of your roommate?
Ah, yes, the ancient art of being immune to flirting by virtue of being completely oblivious to it.
I think I got as far as the brown belt in that.
I'm with Brun: it's weird to use the word "exotic" unironically in 2019.
It's a creepy imperialist version of racism.
"Don't be this guy"
Good advice that far too many people probably need. But they also probably aren't people who regularly read Questionable Content.
The only place to use exotic nowadays should be if you work in a Hadron Collider...
Or if you're teaching/taking a course in certain branches of physics.
It's creepy here and generally a bit racist, but I don't think that he's proposing to conquer anyone else's country in the immediate future. Not without a shirt, anyway.
He's being imperialist (the adjective), not an imperialist (the noun).
I still disagree, though. Imperialism is about building and having an empire. If you mean "racist", well, you've already said "racist".
(And "exotic" apparently also has meanings related to finance, n-dimensional maths, pets, and striptease...)

Again, there's a difference between the adjective version and the noun version. As in, you can have thoughts and actions that are racist or sexist in nature without being a racist or a sexist, simply because certain our society has been informed by racism and sexism for hundreds of years, and some thing just exist in the societal subconscious. Likewise, because we're part of a society that was formed from imperialism, some thoughts, actions and beliefs (such as people being "exotic") still reflect that mentality.
If I may propose a resolution? The guy's a jackass.
