Wow! What an asshole! Let me guess, he went on to suggest his friend read some of the later issues of Dave Sim's Cerberus?
Well... Is he WRONG?...
Yeah, Ghost World is Feminist Agenda Bullshit!!! -and The Crow is Suicidal Emo Coercion, Cerebus is Elitist Right Wing Political Persuasion and Black Hole is... ermmm... a Pretentious Anti-Drug Message??? And don't get me started on the Pro-Gay Marriage factors of Bone. *cough*
I think I read that book at the library and I thought it was really good
Cool story, bro.
My brother loves Ghost World and keeps suggesting it to me.
I consider myself an "anti-feminist/MRA" and I fucking loved GhostWorld.
I thought the moral of GhostWorld was being a pretentious and obnoxious teenager isolates you and makes your life miserable.At least that's what I got out of it. Loved it.
Lol I can't think of a single actual feminist comic off the top of my head
Ah, yes. I forgot about Daniel Clowes' appallingly feminist rhetoric. Female main characters that aren't made of tits: blatant, unapologetic feminism. Who does he think he is? A woman?? They should go back to making sandwiches like in the good old days- the Mad Men 60's!The sad part is I actually know quite a few people that think like this.
And Maus is Nazi propoganda!
And Casper the Friendly Ghost is anti-abortion agenda comics!
Yep, Ghost World is part of the feminist agenda to get men to think women are just like people, with personalities and hopes and dreams and fears and agency in their own life and stuff. Better stick to stories where women are only supporting characters so you don't risk having any weird new thoughts.
Guess I'm going to have to read Ghost World then.
