I know Zeggy is panicking right now, but fuck that reaction is the worst. You're not exactly helping yourself here Zeg, goddamn.

@fr@nk: No. Telling someone that their creepy sexual advances towards a person of the same sex IS CREEPY is nowhere near the same as being homophobic. If it's creepy for a man to make overt sexual advances/innuendos towards a clearly uninterested woman, it's still creepy for a man to do it to another man. Furthermore, Joe is asexual, which is part of why he thought the "girlfriend" jokes (which Zeggy wouldn't stop making even though it was clearly uncomfortable) were insulting.

Damn... Someone's about to have an aneurysm. o_o

@Fokkusu: Exactly!
Zeggy didn't just cross the line a long time ago, he took a looooong leap over it and now he's getting hit with the consequences. It is a hard lesson to learn, but it's better now than ever even if Joe is being extremely harsh.
Also Joe and Zeggy have been yelling at each other since March. They've been fighting for almost two months straight. I find this fact incredibly funny.

I suspect Alkaline ignores just as much of Joe's behavior as he does Zeggy's. The one time Alkaline has stood up and said something about stuff was towards Joe earlier, so I'm not so sure that he actually feels the way Joe's saying he does. Zeggy's behavior needs to change, no doubts about it, but I find it more understandable than Joe's. Unless Joe and Alkaline are secretly dating, I just don't understand Joe butting in on something that's just not his business.

@Dreigi: I would more than love to clarity some of the situation for you; but I'm afraid a lot of what I'd have to say is spoilers that are cleared up later so I can't say much!

So instead, I'm just gonna let you know that what you assume is going on between Alkaline and Joe isn't correct but I'm sure there are some things Alkaline puts up with Joe as well, but most of what he puts up with has to do with Zeggy. Joe and Alkaline are on wonderful terms, actually.

And lastly, I will say this; Joe is not a liar. Alkaline and Zeggy are.

Thanks a ton for your comment! I hope you're having an awesome evening!

The more I think I think about this scene, the less I like what it seems to be implying.

Joe has teased Zeggy about being gay twice (pages 85 and 131). It's never been blown up into a big deal, and I don't think it needed to be anyway. And yet, when Zeggy sorta-teases Joe about having a girlfriend (it's apparently an off-hand remark at least the first time around) it gets blown up into something huge later because Joe is asexual. It seems very disproportionate, especially since Joe teasing Zeggy was never made into a big deal. Frankly, the way it's written comes across as a bit hypocritical, since Zeggy is generally being portrayed as utterly in the wrong in this chapter's ending.

It can be really hard to back Zeggy on anything ever, but the "girlfriend joke" thing seems a lot like a double standard, even if it wasn't intended to be written that way.

This is just my opinion of course, and I'd be interested in hearing any thoughts you might have to share, DCS.
