We knew they lost their balls in the aftermath of dickwolves 11 years ago but now they are openly licking the boot that is stamping on their face.

It won't help of course, since they are white and male and straight, the beast they are futilely attempting to appease will eventually turn its rapacious jaws on them. One crack in the eggshells they are walking on and dickwolves will be prosecuted all over again. And with it anything else in their public profile that was previously considered off-color and is now a capital offense.

In a way it is our fault. Post-dickwolves we failed to mount a proper defense to the faux-outrage assault. At the time, they probably looked around and saw nothing but enemies everywhere they turned. In their mind surrender, bargaining, and pleading for mercy was probably rationalized as their best bad option. We didn't have the awareness of the magnitude of the problem that gamergate uncovered. And we didn't realize we could meaningfully push back, show support, and welcome them if they were willing to join us.

The PA guys are wrong and I won't support them, but they do have my sympathy. Tycho failed as a father and now has an it for a son. It's not too surprising they can't see straight when they've surrounded themselves (and their children) with demons.

They're material got me through some rough patches. I pray someone will do the same for them.

What happened with Tycho's kid?

Sneak_King 31 points ago +31 / -0

The boy's autistic and wants to be a 'they.' Tycho obliged. Now Tycho only uses plural pronouns for other people. Tycho and Straub did a 1P TTRPG session at the last PAX that was borderline incomprehensible because everyone was 'they.'

If only Mr. Period were around to have a word with him.

KeeperOfTheGate 28 points ago +28 / -0

How sad. Any link?

From what I had read over the years, it seems like Tycho in particular had a real rough relationship with his father who was a real man's man (and IIRC conservative Christian). Kind of like Spoony if anyone followed that shitshow...

I always had the impression that both Gabe and Tycho were in way over their heads with their kids, and WAY over compensating.

As someone who is clearly spending plenty of time reading KiA/KiA2/etc, and playing some vidya, though not as many as I used to, I limit the shit out of what my kids can play, how much they can play, and no fucking way are they on social media. That day will come eventually, but for now, let kids be kids... Shit is cancer for youth.

Nothing but admiration and praise for you, sir. This is the kind of white pill I like to seek out these days... just knowing parents are actually PARENTING and doing as much as they can to protect their children from today's grooming zeitgeist.

Hard agree.

Sneak_King 10 points ago +10 / -0

I used to follow his twitter. I also came to the over-correction conclusion. A good cautionary tale, I suppose.

kek, no.

Every. Single. Time.

It's not even surprising anymore. Just saddening because that group is really vulnerable to the troon groomers. Ask me how I know.

Sneak_King 12 points ago +12 / -0

Stay strong, brother.

GhostBond 7 points ago +7 / -0

One theory is that it's modern day eugenics - the full on surgery sterilizes the person, being gay is similar in that you lose half the genetic contribution.

BidenLikesMiners 4 points ago +4 / -0

damn it, the navy made you a tranny. I knew it was gonna happen sometime... send benis pics to the mods they tend to like that kinda thing

yvaN_ehT_nioJ 4 points ago +4 / -0

Lol, not me. But that wouldn't be too surprising. Over the years I've had multiple friends who were on the spectrum too and I'm the only one of them today is isnt a troon. I've given a whole spiel about that somewhere in my post history, I'll see if I can dig it up.

That isn't to say I wouldn't have been at risk if I was just a few years younger. If I was just, say, even 5 years younger I think it would be very possible. Almost a guarantee if I was any younger than that.

Absolutely sickening it's ravaging the autism community, and it's absolutely subverted by wokists so they cheer it on, not knowing they're condemning their friends and loved ones to (even more) depression, suicide, alienation..

They should have taken the child to a non corrupt psychologist that will provide advice for deradicalization, even if it meant having to search outside the country.

acp_k2win [S] 22 points ago +22 / -0

non corrupt psychologist

so it is impossible you are saying

NoGardE 18 points ago +18 / -0

As JBP said, "All of the right-wing psychologists are in this room, sitting in this chair."

Sneak_King 13 points ago +13 / -0

PA Corp is full of trannies (and based in Seattle). That was never going to happen.

Steampunk_Moustache 11 points ago +11 / -0

even if it meant having to search outside the country.

If I had their level of money I would have built myself a castle some east asian jungle and populated it with a harem and security guards, and never been heard from again.

That's honestly heartbreaking.

BandageBandolier 5 points ago +5 / -0

But not surprising, the easily-influenced groupthink-susceptible apple didn't fall far from the easily-influenced groupthink-susceptible tree, it just grew in a different season.

Wizardslayer 7 points ago +7 / -0

Oh god. I haven't read them in months. Guess it is going to stay that way.

yvaN_ehT_nioJ 2 points ago +2 / -0

I tried checking back a few years ago and the art-style had turned to shit. I mean seriously look at it now. It's like some awful cal-arts-tumblr mutant

ClownTamer 5 points ago +5 / -0

I’m surprised he let it come to that considered how based they had been in the past. A lot of their PA reality thing was them being dicks and being relatively based back in the day. Comic stopped being funny a while back, but I still liked those guys back in the day. Met them a number of times and they were always really nice to fans that weren’t dicks.

yvaN_ehT_nioJ 14 points ago +15 / -1

True, but then again how could we? Back then we were fighting what we thought were the last vestiges of the culture war against Jack Thompson and co., we had no way of knowing we were already in another against the far left. (Hell, a lot of us weren't even in college yet) We were still 4 years out from that and even then it still took another few years for us to realize it. And even then some of us (read: kia1-type people) still haven't gotten the hint.

BlueDrache 14 points ago +17 / -3

... "dickwolves"?

Sounds like some spicy drama.


Yep. It was.

Careless_Ejaculator 3 points ago +3 / -0

That's a wild ride. Mike's eventual conclusion, that he never should've removed the merch or "engaged" was correct.

If you show any weakness these screeching trannies go for the throat.

Somehow, the art keeps getting worse.

Careless_Ejaculator 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's so many tight-knit, wispy lines, the faces look like a scribble. He's done well trying to establish a distinctive silhouette though, even if it's a bit mickey mouse.

ChadRudy 34 points ago +34 / -0

Stop supporting cucks that hate you.

The "thank you" should be mutual: Making it clear where these faggots stand.

Piroko 23 points ago +23 / -0

Take it for what it is.

It's a flattering caricature. Those sunglasses...

cartoonericroberts 18 points ago +18 / -0

I realize the coloring is because they are standing in the rain and the guy is in front of a monitor, but between the coloring and the guy being fit while they are flabby nerds it really undermines their message.

BlueDrache 17 points ago +17 / -0

Oh, they're totally leftist faggots ... listen to their shit with that other Wizards of the Coast faggot Chris Perkins doing their D&D 5th Soy Edition Acquisitions Inc. or the "C-Team" spinoff.

Sneak_King 8 points ago +8 / -0

C-Team makes me irrationally angry. Tycho, Straub, and Hartman are a dream team of TT comedy, but those tranny harpies are intolerable.

Straub's fall from sanity is more heartbreaking than PA's, I think.

Crockett 6 points ago +6 / -0

Straub's fall from sanity is more heartbreaking than PA's, I think.

Oh no. I looked away from the trainwreck too soon. I loved Chainsawsuit, Blamimations, and the Kris and Scot show. Then the latter two went away and he started dumping retarded shit on Chainsawsuit, so I just drifted away. But it's worse than that, isn't it? I haven't seen any of C-Team or that stuff.

PvP got bad, too, not in a political way, it just wasn't good at all anymore. I still catch up on PA regularly, but this comic just made me sigh in disappointment.

Sneak_King 4 points ago +4 / -0

Straub went crazy back during GG. He made a couple anti-GG comics on CSS that you'll still find in circulation today. PA drifted away from Kurtz over the rights to AI, but I think Straub ditched him because PvP was 'problematic' somehow. I don't know the details, I didn't follow K+S as closely.

Unlike the others, Straub wasn't always an arty-farty. He has an engineering background. That's why him snapping first stings. I had hoped the trained analytic mind would put up resistance. Him going first just meant the others were a matter of time.

Crockett 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yeah, GG was the tipping point where I got the bad vibes from Straub.

That transition was so weird. In 2011, PA, gamers, nerds, my coworkers, basically everyone would be "Team Dickwolf" when it came to that kind of issue. Then by the time GamerGate happened, they all became SJWs without even noticing they had changed. I swear to god, in 2012-2013, they put something in the water supply that messed with people's minds. The change was so fundamental and so swift.

Anyways, it's nice to reminisce about old times. I liked the Penny Arcade circle and web comics as a whole. But social media changed that landscape too much, I think.

Sneak_King 2 points ago +2 / -0

Definitely. Acq. Inc. ruined me for D&D podcasts. I've never found another I enjoy as much as prime AI.

BaconLT 2 points ago +2 / -0

It sucks that the best DnD podcast was AI in 4th edition. It basically peaked when Pat replacing Wil. Nothing really compares to it and I'm honestly embarrassed by the following of Critical Role and the other big ones. Mainly because the actual gameplay execution is so sloppy and scripted.

Sneak_King 2 points ago +2 / -0

I'm a 4e supremacist, but I think 4e is the ideal edition for podcasts. Describing turn by turn tactics is true theater of the mind and if combat is played legit, it's genuinely unpredictable.

I understand why the PAX shows moved to big set pieces and largely made combat symbolic. I don't understand why livestreamed shows, without the time constraints of a PAX, do the same.

Careless_Ejaculator 13 points ago +14 / -1

Dude in the second panel looks pretty based. The only thing they got wrong was the anger. We save our anger for the right time.

MetalGearMk4 12 points ago +12 / -0

cheeto_dust 25 points ago +25 / -0


It's just virtue signaling. "hey guise we're totally with it and need to poke fun at those retarded anti-vaxxxers!11!"

Oppressinator 12 points ago +12 / -0

Are these the same characters? They look like they've been deathly ill for years, while the designated chud character is vibrant and healthy and buff, even dealing with going bald well.

KeeperOfTheGate 8 points ago +10 / -2

I started reading PA in 1999. I haven't consistently read it in maybe 10 or 12 years. A friend of mine was a mod on the forums and helped out at some of the earliest PAXes. They've pretty much always been like this. Snarky, know-it-all, elitist geek humor. That's what they are.

These guys have been doing the exact same thing for almost 25 years now. They're a perfect case of total arrested development. They dramatically scaled back their operations a few years ago so they can do just the stuff they want to ... comics and D&D. Good for them.

I'm not so sure they're totally cucked. They've got public figure disease, and parent's of girl child disease.

Having a daughter seems to make you a total pussy. If anything having boys has made me go further in the opposite direction.

acp_k2win [S] 7 points ago +7 / -0

Its even worse than the strip I linked. Looks like they were complicit in creating outright state propaganda. That tweet is 5 month old and only came up because I searched for other vaccine shilling. Says it is the 2nd strip so I assume they have been doing it even longer than that.

AlfredicEnglishRules 7 points ago +7 / -0

This explains why PAX feels so dead now ...

So penny arcade has become the pompous religious rightists that they would have made fun of at the start of the comic. Hilarious.
