Well, I have to say Mike is correct……
Never realized Mike actually has a good sense of humor before chapter 77.
And the gradual changing in Daisy’s face in each panel is rather funny.

Daisy: Mikie, why?!?!

Mike, technically you are right. You are both here for baby reasons… except Daisy is here to prevent having a baby and you are just here to help out your kid brother.

Would have been a lot less awkward if Mike actually saw what she was holding before he started talking.

Oh and I just love the way Daisy gets all curly when she’s stressed. It’s so adorable.

Also since first time commenting, can we not with the **** shaming with this arc. There’s a ridiculous amount of it. I bet you’re the people who put girls down for wearing shorts. If they decide they want to lose there virginity at whatever age, then that’s their deal. Especially with the BCB cast, they’ve been through sex ed. And she’s buying protection. Nothing at all wrong here what so ever. You can have your oppions, you can have your ideals, but when you start putting others down because of them is when the problems start.

Edit: apologies for being off topic. But that’s just one thing that’s been bugging me. On topic again, Mike you lil ****, if you’re going to be that sassy you need to do it right. With glitter and a z snap.

Sorry, I don’t **** shame. It’s not **** shaming to encourage the youth to actually value sex. It’s also irresponsible to encourage teens to lead an extremely excessive sex life. It’s unhealthy and risky in a world where 1.1 million Americans have HIV. And you can’t take a pill to get rid of it, it just gradually gets worse until you die of AIDS. (Especially when you live in the south which has 45% of the HIV count in the USA. (HOLY CRAP) http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/statistics/basics/ ataglance.html

Besides the other hang-ups like babies, there are plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t as a teen. Besides, the reason why people judge anyway is because it’s sort of an issue that affects everyone. Diseases, abortions, unwanted children in shelters etc. So expecting people not to judge you for whatever your decisions are is unrealistic. The youth judge their peers for virginity just as bad, trust me.

@Sanchan: There was a reason I said “Would have been a lot less awkward if Mike actually saw what she was holding BEFORE he started talking.”

I capitalized the before because it’s kind of important. I noticed that Mike saw what she was holding in panel 10, but it would have been a lot less awkward if he noticed before he started talking and mentioned: “Guess we’re both here for KID REASONS, huh.”

Talking about a kid when Daisy is trying not to have a kid… Mike really should have noticed what she was holding before he spoke up.

Also, Daisy running into a guy that loves her(Augustus) and a guy she has a crush on(Mike) all while buying contraceptives for her boyfriend(Abbey)… who is next? Who will be waiting for her at the cash register? Will it be a friend, a family member, or somebody completely unexpected? All this and more will be answered eventually. :D

Oh, and will they be able to get home without without being caught by an adult? Knowing their luck so far… probably not. :smirk:

I find it hilariously awesome that Daisy has, by this point, seen the two males she was in love with while getting a pack of condoms, and yet both know who her boyfriend is currently. The first seemed to be embarrassed by the fact, while Mike just sort of made a joke about her using protection.

Well played, Taeshi. Well played.

On a comic note, I’m hoping she sees a panel of people from school and eventually screams in frustration that she’s buying condoms “ALL RIGHT ALREADY!”

At which point the sex ed teacher or abbey’s mom spots her and gives her the talk.

Exactly… what are the odds that this would happen?
Well, since they came right after school, without dropping off their bags first, I’d say pretty likely. It’s close to school. All the kids must live around there.

On a side note, Daisy is probably panicking in her head, though I’m pretty sure he didn’t notice the box at all.

I’ve always loved the consistent detail with Daisy when she gets her “feathers” (fur) ruffled. The more stressed/embarrassed she is, the “worse” she looks. So cute! I can’t seem to find little face expressions but that’s all well and fine.

Game over, TD. Game over. XD Or David showing up and announcing it to the whole store. It’s go time.

@Duskdelusion: Mike first looked at the ear medicine he got for Chris. Then he looked over to what Daisy was holding in Panel 10 and proceeded to get away from the awkward situation. He wasn’t trying to be a jerk.

Dude, if Daisy keeps blushing throughout this chapter, her cheeks are either going to: A.) Perma-blush or B.) explode into fire.
Daisy should’ve put that box away and been like, “Uh yeah, me too. Ear medicine for, uh, Abbey. Yeah, I need to go now.”
But dude, if I saw Daisy getting a pack of condoms, I would’ve been like “Oh, ah ha!” *Sly smile, nudge to the shoulder, and a wink* “You and Abbey gonna get lucky tonight, huh? Tell me how it turns out, will ya? Heh heh…do you need someone there to coach you two? I can coach you two…hey, OW! THAT HURT!”

Wow, no offense, but you sound like the crazy sex ed teacher they had in middle school… And also, NO you do not have the right to judge others, unless you want to be judged too. What other people do is NONE of your business, so you shouldn’t stick your nose, and opinions where they are not required. To add on to that, yes when people are irresponsible they can have negative affects, which is why I think it is great that Daisy is using protection when and if she decides to do something with Abbey.

What I get from your little tirades about how Daisy absolutely should wait, it is wrong for Daisy to want to do it, and that Daisy wants to try and do something to make herself feel better and because she feels she loves someone, is that you are judgmental. You can NOT expect every single person to live up to YOUR standards, and you have no right to look down on someone because they are not like you. How do you know that a girl isn’t a virgin because she was raped? How can you know that a girl isn’t sleeping around because she feels worthless and is trying desperately to feel like she has worth and that is all she knows? How do you know if they aren’t being abused and are looking for love in other places and are so desperate to be loved that they feel they have to do it to keep their loved ones? YOU CAN NOT KNOW. Which is why you shouldn’t judge.

No one is saying “Yeah Daisy! Go bang all the guys you want!” And Daisy isn’t saying anything about sleeping around either. She is making a choice to possibly take the next step with who she thinks she loves. Acting superior and that it is your RIGHT to judge others, is unrealistic.

I know full well how bad it can be on the side of the fence where you are sneered at for being a virgin. I waited till I was almost 21, and I made the choice to wait, but I didn’t judge others for not making that same choice. A lot of my friends were not virgins, some by choice, some not by choice, they were my friends and I loved them. However I did make the choice to avoid being around people who said things like “Yeah I totally hit it and forget it, it’s awesome! I bang X amount of chicks each week!” Or girls who bragged about what guys they slept with. Did I approve of it? No. Did I judge them for it? No, it was their choice. Instead I made the choice to avoid it.

If you really detest it SO MUCH, then avoid it, instead of judging and looking down at others for not making the same choice. Live and let live, and make the choice to be better YOURSELF instead of worrying about others. Judging others like that, is only a poor reflection on yourself, and if you work on being better yourself and make yourself into a shining example, maybe people will make the choice to try and be more like you.

Be the positive influence, instead of being the negative.

Congrats, you got an intellectual post from me on what should be a funny and carefree comic for the day.

It’s rather odd to see Mike as a side-character for now. Especially because he isn’t all grumpy and flat-eared.

I thought the comments section was supposed for the comic(page), not for discusions/commenting people on their lifestyle or anything.

Just sayin’.

They are just in an ordinary drugstore? Oy Vey! No doubt there’s more people they know awaiting them around every corner!

They should have worked as a team! Daisy carries “the goods” while Abbey goes in front as a scout.
Code Word for Safe = Saskatchewan
Code Word for Danger = Mongoose…

Poor Daisy. She thought “losing it” would be the most memorable moment of her life? But NOOOO! (“Buying IT” is!)

Meanwhile, similar things could be happening to Abbey?

Very counter-productive on your name huh?

Besides, if you’re allowed to judge my character as “Oh so terrible,” because I have a conservative view on something, I’m just as allowed to point out observations on other people’s behavior. Everyone judges sweetheart, much like you just did to me.

I tire of the mindset of ignorance where people say, “STOP! Keep your opinions quiet in case you offend anyone or make them think.”

I opted out of reading most of that because it was too long-winded. Nothing I said was really negative or crazy. Government research is considered as one of the few credible sources in science journals. So whether or not you agree, that was just a statement and a legit reason why teens should be careful. They are most at risk because they are not very careful. Because, well, they are children.

Today we see Daisy in such a situation with her childish inability to stick with Abbey like a mature couple. It would have spared her some embarrassment if they were doing the shopping together.

Huh. What I find amusing about this is that both Mike and Augustus were people Daisy formerly had, and possibly still partially has, crushes on. And she ran into them both while buying condoms. Good to see she still maintains her title as Queen of Awkward.
Well, you’ve been spotted about twice now, Daisy. You can kiss that Big Boss ranking goodbye, but you can at least still go for Fox Hound rank. You have your work cut out for you on that one…just don’t get spotted again!

It is rather obvious you didn’t read it. I never called you terrible. Just said you should be yourself, and not judge others. I never judged you, just said you should show your best qualities, and show people who you are, and how amazing you are with your own ideals. Let people see you, without judging them, and let them decide they want to follow you and follow your example and your choices. Lead by example :)

I AM long winded, I am giving my opinion, and I am not saying that Government funded research is wrong. But using it as a scare tactic, is also not the way to get people to listen, which is why I compared you to crazy sex ed teacher. She teaches kids by scare tactics, which is how your research came off.

Edit: Also, do you really need to insult my name? Are you really stooping to that? I like my name, that is all that matters :p

“Judging others like that, is only a poor reflection on yourself”

Nonsense, such a comment is a judgement in its own right. Especially since I had only said excess shouldn’t be encouraged. It’s an opinion, common sense really, not a judgement. I never pointed my finger at a real person and rudely called them out on anything.

Faolan September 5, 2013, 6:34 PM EST.

Comment ID #258728


Oh did you want input? Try making a statement that at least in context. :/ She didn’t actually make any claims on my logic. It was just really long. Besides at the end of the day she is upset over my opinion in regards to Daisy, a fictional character. I was speaking about her and the subject in general.

Furthermore, I find it pathetic and sad that respectable is archaic and detestable to you. And if it is, I’d rather be that way and believe in real love than turn to only expressing lust with strangers.

Maybe I didn’t word that as best as I could, it was not meant as a judgmental comment, but as a reflection of how you portray yourself. When you say things like “Yes, Daisy should wait.” or make sweeping comments about how if you sleep with more people you are more likely to become unfaithful to your partner. It speaks volumes. It says you have a very poor opinion of others who do not wait. That is not a judgement on my part, that is what I see, and if I can’t see more I can’t know anything more, but I won’t judge you as a bad person for having such views. I do find it upsetting how people are judging Daisy, even if she is a fictional character, because even if she is a fictional character, judging them is still wrong.

I apologize if you find my comment to be a bit too long for you, but that is a part of who I am. I am someone who takes the time to put down my full thoughts, without holding back and being as honest as I can be. Overall I think you have a good mindset on the issue and I do believe it is good to wait, but to act as if it is a bad thing not to, is something I can not agree with you upon. I can agree to disagree, though. :D

I adore Daisy, because she is sweet and child-like in her own way, and she is striving too hard to be more like an adult. But it is her choice to make, and she shouldn’t be judged for it. No one should be judged for their choices, at least not by someone else. We all make mistakes, we all make our own choices for our own reasons. People don’t like being judged, so I do my utmost best not to. :D

I just don’t get something, what did Mike mean with “we’re both here for kid reasons”? what did Mike think Daisy was in there for? why did he say it was a kid reason? I understand his was a kid reason because it was for his baby brother, but I don’t understand what would Daisy’s “kid reason” be. Because of course, the joke is that her “kid reason” are the condoms, but Mike said that BEFORE seeing them. So yeah, can someone explain?

oh I know have her teacher walk in. Or maybe Daisy’s parents could make an entrance. also a joke about the condoms she bought being either to big or too small from abbey just as she is trying to explain the condoms to her parents.

OH no I’ve got the perfect one. Have Rachel walk in see the condoms and have her start giving daisy all sorts of very loud and extremely descriptive advice on good products and bedchamber techniques. Then finish it all off with Rachel suggesting that she should be a part of daisy’s first experience so she can give her some first hand demonstrations. YES IT’S PERFECT.

Cecilite September 7, 2013, 12:10 PM EST.

Comment ID #258906


In case you didn’t realize, most of the people here are opposed to encouraging waiting in pre-teens.

Mostly because they’ve all be active since their teen years. So for you to say that they ought to be waiting, the main group of “teens-are-old-enough-too” are upset that people like you might dare suggest that what they were too early.

But that’s our world now. Young people just don’t value sex in the same way that they used to. Not that it was right, but a long time ago, birth control was not so common and people had a lot of public shame if they got pregnant as a teen. So most waited.

Since they did wait, they started to value the act. There were not as many broken and divorced families as there are now about 50 years ago. That’s why you see so many old couples that married once and suck together after 70 years. The newer generation gets married at least twice or more before 40.

But you can’t say that. No, you’ll hurt someone’s feelings for pointing out that pre-marital sex has major negatives that our liberal generation is already experiencing.
