  1. This "be gay do crimes" comic  I've seen parodied on Twitter really gets under my skin and though I'm glad a lot of people are calling it out there's a sizable chunk of people advocating for this kind of behavior (as well as the artist themselves). Other than the fact I'm just against stealing morally, the way people act like it's this quirky trendy act that hurts no one because "big company bad" and thus feel morally justified in doing so just reeks of privilege. As a POC I definitely am not likely to just get a minor slap on the wrist if I pulled a stunt like this just runs me the wrong way.

    I usually don't get on a soapbox but this one thing really irked me so I apologize

      A quick lookup was all it took for me to confirm that yes, this is the same artist who made this:

      5a1

      Which also has pro-"robbing from fat cats" implication. And now makes the New Guy look twice as sympathetic. Consequentally further provoking harassment towards minors and the artist in some cases.

      I agree with the basic sentiment that capitalism generally sucks and rich people generally suck, but in both of these comics I find the character to just come off as a dick and do nothing to garner any empathy for me.

      Like I get that the shoplifting comic's main gag is that in spite of this action she took, she still doesn't know what to draw - but unfortunately that gag is not strong enough to undo my hatred of the character that I gained once the pens went into the bag earlier in the comic.

       

      And the second comic is just boring old-fashioned done-to-death "hmhmhm character with my opinion is smug and sarcastic and so cool and great, character without my opinion is a dumb idiot stupid face with a vacant expression" cliché.

      People are so desperate to stick it to the man even at the cost of their own intelligence and others' well being.

      Also yeah, if you want to stick it to the man, shop with independent suppliers.  "But I don't live near any/they're too expensive" = then it's time to weigh up what your morals are really worth to you.

      People acting like they're being Robin hood when in reality they're just morally bankrupt and trying to make a entirely wrong point 😔
