    We all know how men are encouraged to hide their feelings and we all know there’s no better way to make a ticking time bomb. On the other hand, women are encouraged to display their most inner vulnerabilities and fears all the time and that’s not any better. We’re encouraged to watch Oprah, be on Oprah, read about Oprah, talk to each other about the sad, sad things that we see on Oprah, be our girl buddy’s very own little Oprah…you get the picture.

    If talking about your pain all the time like a depressed Nirvana song is the way to feeling better, how come Cobain ended up killing himself?

    I read those “tell all books” girls write about their miserable lives for too long until I realized that A) reading about it won’t make the victim any better, B) those books made me feel more and more miserable myself and C) the publishing companies are not in this to help people heal, they are in it to make big bucks off people’s pain!

    There is many a book or a blog out there who will use feminism as an excuse to tell already psychologically injuried women that there is a rapist waiting in every alley, that every man is a potential murderer and to be afraid, very afraid all the time.

    That is not empowerment, that is cruelty.

    Looks like the strip is about Rall’s The worst thing I’ve ever done.
