Agree.What kid comes home and complains about sex ed that isn't just 'that was extremely uncomfortable'? Also Ciel's little brother openly talking about sex stuff in front of their parent like holy shit if this isn't the most abnormal conversation ever. Sex ed taught in school is only meant to teach the basic aka 'diseases exist, use a condom. pregnancy happens so use a condom.' and first and foremost, is focused on sex that's why it's called sex ed it's not about gender identity or any other shit troons care about.
When my son had sex ed, there was a kid that passed out in class. So, yeah, some kids can't really handle it well. And 5th grade is too young to be talking about sex in great detail. They need to know what to expect during puberty, basic mechanics of reproduction, how to protect themselves against STDs, and consent. That's it. Older kids can handle more info. Kids in 5th grade can't.I can't decide what's worse... the dialogue or that one panel in the first page where the kid and his dad both look directly at the "camera"/reader in a freaking comic book.
Dear Labelle: "Look into the camera like you're on the office" doesn't work in print.
ETA: Wait, I found another worst thing: the fact that they're teaching fifth graders about trans shit and trying to get them to troon out in fucking fifth grade. Jesus.
Also, the implication that all the kids who were "opted out" had parents who opted them out because of LGBT shit. When I was that age, some kids self-opted out (didn't have their parents sign the permission form) out of embarrassment / because they didn't want to go to the class. I would imagine that's still the case.
Because the kid is apparently pansexual.I ought to buy stock in the straw man industry, with all these "arguments" Labelle is making.
Plus, how old is Sandrat's brother? 8? 10? Why the fuck is he talking about the LGBT lobby instead of Pokemon, or Lego, or whatever it is kids do these days?
....oh, right. Like every other character, he exists only to serve as a mouthpiece for Labelle's views.
with them saying NETFIIX?
I assume it is to avoid getting in trouble with Netflix. Though, any reasonable person will know what they mean by Netfiix.
Even with big corporations wanting to tick off checkboxes by passing themselves off as "diverse", "inclusive", "woke", etc, they still protect their brand names because it's the only to enforce their ownership/copyright. Odds may be low NetFlix would target someone such as LaBelle using their name in a shitty web comic. At the same time, if the reaction to those comics proves to be too negative, they don't want to have their brand or reputation irreparable tarnished, either.Oh, so they say it to not get in trouble and avoid copyright even though that’s not how copyright fucking works? LOL that is so funny.
Funny how LaBelle and company hate the idea of being "labeled without permission" yet they do the same thing when they label their critics as "CIS scum," "Nazi," or other hateful slurs. That makes them no better than the people they're trying to criticize.I imagine it's also some sort of distaste for the whole "Someone is labelling me without my permission" idea where the declaration of a gender comes in.
IF this is true, I'd wonder if LaBelle became a godparent pre-transition. However, I'm filing this under "LaBelle's Lies" until proven otherwise.Omg. He has a godson? What kind of exceptional degenerate would choose him as a "godmother".
The worst is those parents that pull their kids out of sex ed for whatever well-intended but naive reason without teaching their kids what they have to know and need to know at that age. That's more of a disservice than letting them be part of the lessons -- even if the parents have legitimate concerns about the content or how it's presented. Also, peer pressure starts to become a thing at that age, so kids will wonder what weird reason their classmate is being withheld from sex ed.When my son had sex ed, there was a kid that passed out in class. So, yeah, some kids can't really handle it well. And 5th grade is too young to be talking about sex in great detail.

Definitely a slide in quality. I guess when you have enough people willing to support you for ideological reasons alone you can start phoning it in... even more I mean.It's just me or the drawing style in this strip is awful even for Billy's standards?
