    Couple that with the fact that she's blogging about it for self-promotion.

    I guess what I'm saying is, release the dickwolves...

    this is the dumbest three sentences I have ever read in consecutive placement.

    would you say that it raped your eyes?

    It just wouldn't be the internet if some gas-bag wasn't being offended by something.

    I think today's comic is the appropriate response to the criticisms. Frankly, it is more worrisome to have creative and satirical content taken too seriously and be constantly sanitized for the sake of someone who may take offense over the Internet. Not only is the latter impossible to avoid, but it isn't as if PA is featured on google's home page or some shit.

    If you want sometimes lewd, off-color gaming culture jokes, you know where to find them. If you don't, then don't come to PA.

    I actually thought the response comic was too tame. It was funny, but I actually would have preferred it if they had either gone all out and just blasted back with something extremely sarcastic, or just ignored it.

    Either way, though, I'm glad it happened because otherwise I would have totally missed that blog article, and people trying to explain why entire topics of conversation are not funny is ALWAYS entertaining.

    Maybe I am just some crazy liberal, but if someone wants to do something that is fine by law, doesn't hurt others, etc, then they should be free to do so without having their mailbox filled up with hate mail, but I guess we don't live in a perfect world.

    yes, in a perfect world you would be free from others opinions. you would be able to make an offensive joke and no one would be offended.

    Well, without opinions, nothing would be able to be flagged as offensive.

    Also, yes Uriel, George Carlin was right.

    I'm still not entirely sure how murder is a "suitable" topic for humour but rape isn't

    Last I checked both were utterly horrific acts

    because apparently rape is a topic REAL feminists care about or something

    I guess my concept of feminists wanting equal treatment rather than being attention-mongering blowhards who don't get gallows humor is apparently deeply flawed

    Because, either through personal experience or just inconsistencies in morality, people CHOOSE what they are offended by.

    If you hear someone make a joke, and are honestly and truly offended by it, as opposed to simply not finding it funny or entertaining, then you're trying too hard.

    Kinda like that American greeting card comic with the lady and the picture of hitler.

    Yeah, but I just really like the tone of this one.

    So smug.

    also, something that actually and truly disturbs me, which is nigh impossible at this point, is to go to okcupid and look at the answered question on women's profiles and find the question "Do you have rape fantasies?"

    the amount of Yes' is really offputting

    I saw this on a girl's profile once. In the comments section she wrote, by vamps only.

    That made it 20 times worse.

    I was briefly involved with a girl who had rape fantasies

    It was weird, I guess, I mean we never got to that stage of things or anything, but still, kinda weird

    So dick wolves have entered the realms of PA fictional monster types, much like Deep Crows.

    I am left wondering if there is such a thing as dire dick wolves.

    Imagine running into a pack of elite Dick Wolves in WoW though. Those bastards would be a tough fight.

    Also, if you pull a pack of Dick Wolves, does that make you a gay?
