The evolution of Tatsuya Ishida
The author of Sinfest, a comic which was mentioned here. Since that lovely explanation of the patriarchy, Tatsuya Ishida has been posting more stuff about feminism which is a far cry from his previous 'totally not getting it but look I'm so edgy!' mocking. Today he posted this comic. (The gist of the page is the author, who shows up in the comic regularly, is having his sins audited. The auditor shows him pretty much every bad thing he's been caught doing, and then he either owes money or ends up in hell. Apologies for forgetting which!) I personally haven't seen someone formerly so unaware actually reflect this much - in public. In full view of angry fanboys.
The forums have a place for people to talk, and it has probably been a vole pit for as long as the comic existed. The reaction this time is exceptional, though. The comments range from "I don't get it" to "Just stick with Tat through this dark period in his life and we'll get our mindless eye candy again," and finally reaches the pinnacle with, "He's been brainwashed by feminists and needs to see a psychiatrist before he purposely hurts himself." The commenters are marveling over Tatsuya's confusion, because since he doesn't actively write about how white straight men should hurt everyone around them, clearly he isn't being racist, sexist, homophobic, etc.
One thing I've really noticed here is the mildness of backlash. People are disagreeing with him and saying some pretty ridiculous things. But they are still having a civil discussion, one that doesn't involve harm on his person, etc. I'm pretty certain if he were female, then the forumgoers would have brought in friends to punish him for daring to call them on their nonsense.
