    Just for the record, NEFFA is a very real organization, well worth supporting. And the annual NEFFA dance and music festival, coming up this April near Boston, is really quite amazing and very well worth attending.

    I’m pretty sure men can join N.O.W., since it’s an organization FOR women, not just OF women.

    I enjoy the puns. With the Sunday strips, I always read the first couple of panels trying to figure out if it will be a pun strip. This was pretty easy – some of them are a stretch, like Free At-lass. :)

    For any Man to support any feminist organization like NOW, means he has to join the male equilivant which is:

    National Organization of Self Loathing Males who want to be discriminated against, subjected to violence and abuse and treated like second-class citizens by female chauvinistic Feminists, they gladly spend money on, and thank them for doing it at the same time, and think they are superior to other men as they treat women as equals

    Either that, or marry one of the non-Lesbian Feminists
