Hey there, it's Nakama! It's been a while since i lasted visited these forums, and couldn't help but notice the comments I see all the time under the comic. Usually i enjoy seeing people's view points of this comic especially, but recently it's gotten really biased, and childish. Thus i want to start an unbiased discussion of Characters, the plot, or the comic all together. I just posted this comment below in the comments section, but i think the last part sums up my feelings nicely, and thought I'd have this as the first post.
In Mike's Defense: He has constantly been mistreated, and when someone opened his eyes and told him it was wrong, he felt that he had been abused. And in fact i see that he HAS been abused, he's been used over and over as Lucy's emotional, and physical toy. Mike has every right to be upset. However i do agree that that last bit about others joining him, I would say that's a little over the top Mikie.
In Lucy's Defence: She has had a poor childhood in terms of social understanding. She does have a sibling, and should therefor understand that at the least, kicking someone hard enough for them to limp, or punching them in the face hard enough to make their nose bleed is wrong. However, despite all that ,she's still been through a lot, and while I can say she definitely didn't DESERVE what's happening right now, she's had it coming for a while.
In Sandy's Defence: She lives in a different city and it's hard to have a long term relationship. I find it difficult to believe you would be fine if your girl/boy friend was being physically abused by another person, regardless of relationship, or gender, or whatever people might think Sandy is biasing of. Though she doesn't understand that Lucy is emotionally unstable, and has social issues, she thinks the same way anyone would provided the knowledge given.
To the Haters, no matter who you hatin': Don't hate on random characters, and don't judge on biases, that's where flaming starts, and that's just bad. Try to see it from every angle before you talk, or comment as some of these comments are terribly ignorant, and arrogant. Please stop making yourself look like an idiot, stop pointing fingers at fictional characters. Like Snape, you know we all hated Snape for a while, right?
So, If you would like to continue discussion with UNBIASED and PERSPECTIVE point of view arguments, leaving out HATE, feel free to post here!
