I just hope this strip (or storyline) doesn't teach people that men are superior and women can be played. :-? Or is this storyline a parody of all that chauvinism?

Meh. People can read anything they want into fiction, if they put enough effort into it. So yeah, someone who is already a male chauvinist will take that away.

The only alternative would be to carefully craft the story so that all the women were in all ways portrayed as being inherently superior to all men, and lacking in any flaws.

This would, of course, be duller than dirt, and more irritating than salt in a wound.

The fact is, people can be played, and women are people, and therefore not immune to that fact. We've seen the boys in this strip get manipulated, run around and generally act like idiots--why should the girls be immune?

Thank you.
If a man is right about something, and no one agrees with him and he is unable to put his truth into benificial action beyond mere principle, does it really matter whether he's right or not?
