The Cry.

    She’s stoopid but she ain’t THAT stoopid!

    Genderless, no, that is God’s choice.

    Motherless, maybe. That’s her real job, but she doesn’t know it.

    Too bad the only job you’ve ever been good at isn’t a paying job, Skye.

    Maybe you should get good at something else.

    • February 9, 2015 at 5:03 am

      It is in fact a “paying job”. About $300 an hour would be my guess.

    I also notice she hasn’t quite denied any plans to do so.

    Being she’s a Prog, I’m still half expecting some other parts of her “past” to finally surface. Maybe some radical fem-nazi professor that Skye interned for. Or some bull-dyke lover from Skye’s “experimenting” stage. Who knows… Maybe Emma was a roommate and Ske has her own “carrying the weight” mattress.

    Never can tell… The smell of cool-aid is strong with this one.

    Yeaaah. Right. Skye only “denies” the genderless rap because she was called out on it. Actions. Words. Which carries more weight?

    Anytime someone openly admits that half of what they say is provocative, chances are they’re lousy at estimating percentages.

      Heh. Very true.

    I dunno about girls (munchkins on the distaff side in my household have “just growed,” Topsy-style, without any conscious scheme of feminization), but boys in my experience have shown early and vehemently – and reliably! – all the traits of aggressiveness commonly associated with the feminists’ crime of “Breathing While Male.”

    Jeez, does anybody recall the first yammerings about denying little boys “war toys” some several decades ago? The presumption was something about refusing to admit to the playroom any simulacra of firearms and other weapons, thereby to avoid stimulating preadolescent emulation of “Bang, Bang, You’re Dead!” violent activities.

    Never worked then, did it? Ain’t working now, as is being richly proven through the expedient use of such plastic media as selectively nibble-able Pop Tarts®.

    In spite of conservatives’ angst and “Liberal” fascist aspirations, raising little males as “genderless” may be pretty much entirely impossible.

    Skye does know how to trip a trigger, doesn’t she? And there is a code that prevents genderless reality. A biological code. To realize a genderless male is a long hard road.

      To realize a genderless male is a long hard road.

      There’d be nothing long nor hard about a genderless male…

      • February 9, 2015 at 5:06 pm

        Shame on you… Go back to bed…

  • February 9, 2015 at 1:55 am

    Jeez’ I wish everyone would lighten up. Skye is exactly what Chris wants her to be; the Foil to the main characters. That used to be Jan but she has been grown-up.

    I think Skye might be good Troll bait as well.

    But then, I have always been soft on “Fallen Women”

      You nailed it.

        “You nailed it”
        Always an appropriate phrase with Skye.

        Of course, I agree that with a cartoon like this, one must have the dimwit comic relief…which in Skye’s case also means the hawt dimwit comic relief.

      Skye has long been a symbol or an expression of leftist thought. To see the character used to express the conflict in a sibling relationship in a sympathetic manner can be disconcerting. You lighten up.

    After seeing the title, my first thought was to wonder if ‘Job’ was intended to be pronounced with a long ‘o’.

      As in the patience of?

    Yet another good one, Sir!

    More to the point, Chris nailed sibling relationships. If my brother and I didn’t have each other to pick on when we were growing up, we’d been less prepared to deal with others when we grew up. Of course, the picking on still continues, but it’s all in fun now.

    Skye, “Good at” remains to be seen, but it’s nice to see you have a soul at least.

  • February 9, 2015 at 7:24 pm

    I think this one speaks more to Sam’s wonderful spirit and heart, than anything to do with Skye. Sad though it is.
