Or maybe this is just a universal phenomenon.

Their forums are full of people blaming her for this strip, so I’m guessing universal phenomenon. But that was my first thought when I read the comic this morning, “UNHOLY POOP! Does he read the same blogs as me?”
There were so many times over the years when things would slow down and I would nearly stop reading Sinfest. I’m so glad I kept reading- this is an awesome pay off.

I’m reading Sinfest.
I’m at April 2007.

I read Sinfest every day. I’m going to second Ichthyic’s answer. This shit is pervasive and it appears that sometimes the cartoon coincides with offline/online anti-feminist storms.
Maybe that’s just me though!

Sinfest has evolved over time. If you check out the early archives, it had quite of bit of racism and sexism. I love that now it is ripping the patriarchy a new one.

I was reading through the other night. Feminism has become a major recurring theme in Sinfest since… looks like about October 2011. I think it’s helped revitalize the comic.

Am I the only one who just doesn’t care for the comic?

Neat. 4-koma manga for gaijin, with social commentary. Adding this to my feed watcher.

How does the guy who rips ecumenical action support Sinfest’s on-going support for the same?

I have been reading Sinfest for some time now and I guess I like comics but this one has hoked me good, I want to know what he draws next and enjoy the child-adults/adult-childes he uses its a great mix of sweet and sourer

I tried to dislike Sinfest, but I guess I just can’t be one of the cool kids ):

For purely selfish reasons, I liked this one, which finally gave two members of the Sisterhood names: http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4525
On topic and relevant to both ’Nique’s hecklers as well as a certain species of commenter at FtB: http://www.sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4554
It’s no accident that the Sinfest forum members who actively dislike the feminist themes Tatsuya’s been introducing in the comic sound a lot like that heckler, to the extent where that comic is being posted as a ‘goodbye, and good riddance!’ comment after a particularly awful flounce. (Which reminds me, one of those who have flounced is one of our ‘friends’ from ye Pitte of Slyme, who has a nym similar to PatchGast.)

Echoing other comments on jumping onto the SJ train. Ishida’s sinfest is essentially the Doonsbury of webcomics, as he tries his damnedest to stay relevant to current political and social issues, with a side of his own policies. Ishida, for the most part, doesn’t seem to give two shits about anyone’s opinion on his comic (I believe he’s notoriously hard to contact, and generally reclusive)

The views in his comic have evolved over the years, almost always for the better.
