So, you might have heard that some folks are angry about Penny Arcade’s Dickwolves shirt. I ranted about it at length a little while ago. Speaking up on these kinds of issues is important, but let’s be honest here, my response isn’t particularly helpful. It’s a rant. I draw a tiny bit of attention to the issue, but really that’s all.
Kirbybits came up with a much better response, a counter-tshirt. It’s awesome:
It works on so many different levels. In my initial rant on this issue, I tried (sometimes succeeded, but mostly just tried) to explain how the Dickwolves shirt makes women feel unwelcome at cons. Kirbybits’ shirt works a perfect mirror effect. It makes people wearing the Dickwolves shirt feel uncomfortable, and it does so by being funny.
Dammit, why didn’t I think of that?
