All the Single Ladies

Guest Strip:Danielle Corsetto

Art -

Story - It like this strip as the writing kind of makes Sam and Jades friendship as natural as the Cole/Brent relationship; replacing the office/pop culture nerdery with a bar and video games with a douche with a pop collared douche hitting on you.

Like Scott said in his notes for this strip Danielle writes very well for both Sam and Jade and the difference between a male writer and female writer is shown here. I'm not saying that Scott is a bad writer with women on purpose but you can only write what you know.

It is the same thing like watching one of those female centric shows (Sex and the City, Gray's anatomy, etc) and they write the all guys as emotional wimps that can't make decisions. Sure there are guys like that but you usually don't see 3-4 in the same group of people at the same time. It is what you THINK the opposite set is/should be, not what they are.

In defense of guys -

emotional wimpery is the most effective countermeasure against random bitchiness.

To me however they make those shows how'd LIKE things to be

Men - Strong acting but sensitive/wimpy core

Women Sensitive/neurotic outside but strong core

This comic makes me think of the handfull of times that I've seen a female that I thought I recognised but decided not to verify it because I figured she would go off to her friend and say "some horrible lout just tried the 'don't I know you' routine on me."

So I guess if I was to try and write a female character she would imagine that every chap who says anything to her is trying to bed her.
