I know this one can be controversial depending on who you ask, but in my opinion it's a good comic and does what it sets out to do. In short, it takes real tumblr conversations, and makes comics out of them. Some detractors have claimed in the past that pleb simply strawmans people, but that's pretty hard to do when you're writing down what someone said verbatim and even include the original source. If you want an idea of why people say tumblr is pants-on-head retarded, this will give you a pretty good idea.

Pleb's also done parodies of Dumbing of Age and Questionable Content, so there's that too.

Some particular gems as well: You get the idea.

The criticism of Plebcomics is as funny as the comic itself.
"This is strawmanning and hate speech!"*
*comic practically quotes someone word for word, only slightly editing to make it fit the comic format better, original source in the description so you can read it for yourself

Really, Plebcomics is one of the LEAST strawmanning political comics. The people she's making fun of really are that stupid and crazy.

I think what I like most about plebcomics is the author. She's pretty chill and I always get a kick out of every now and then poking through her tumblr.

The fact that you say that, and I believe you, makes me sad that their are people that one dimensional and spiteful in this world

I remember her being very popular within the gamergate movement for comics like this (I think it's Aaron Diaz in the middle). She wasn't quoting verbatim here, but even back then she had more sense than GamerGate Life when it came to her comics.

Oh trust me that, while not quoting ad verbatim, that Anita comic is 100% spot on.



​I love plebcomics, personally. But don't consider it a webcomic per se, more like a vent journal.

​What's hilarious is how SJWs doxed her and got her fired and her original blog taken down over "hate speech". Welcome to 2015, freedom of speech is a thing of the past.

ya - after her tumblr ban and following re-instatement (which was after she got doxxed and lost her job because SJWs harassed her boss) she began to focus 100% on SJW bullshit, and sources it wonderfully

barely any strawmaning - she quotes SJWs word by word. The amounts of salt her haters produce is just beyond imagination.

You do the Lord's work. Thank you so much.

It's pretty fun to read as someone that doesn't really navigate SJW Tumblrs/sites. You really have no idea how batshit crazy some people are until you crawl down the rabbit hole.

I think I like her comic parody comics the most. I hope she does more.

The only problem I have with this is that I hope she dosent just make fun of SJW. Dont' get me wrong, SJW deserve it and I believe she is not strawmaning, but SJW are so one-note and shallow that the joke might get old after the umpteenth time. Who knows, maybe I'm wrong and Plebcomics can stay fresh as long as the SJW can keep on acting completely asinine.

That and some (if not majority) of the SJWs are Trolls giving real social justice activists a bad name.

Except that people Pleb has made a comic of include college professors, people with political influence, and well established radical feminists with thousands of subscribers (ie- people like misandry-mermaid). And of course there's the little matter of her being doxxed, harassed, and fired over making comics on the web. And you're seriously going to imply that those people are mostly just trolls who don't actually believe in what they're doing?

Yeah, I looked at that tumblr page and it covers a bunch of exaggerated tumblrina stereotypes, generally pushed to levels of comical ridiculousness. Most of the people Pleb and other anti-SJW's argue with show maybe a couple of those traits, not nearly on the level that that page represents. Heck, you don't have to look at tumblr. You can look at the fandoms of various webcomics or check out the live video footage from a university near you of people getting angry, verbally abusive, and borderline violent over being asked the most basic questions about their beliefs:

You may not like it, you may prefer to believe that your political movement is good and pure and not full of douchebags, but THESE PEOPLE ARE 100% REAL. If you don't like being viewed that way, try criticizing THEM instead of the people calling them out.

I know it's comforting to believe that your particular portion of the political arena is good and pure and not full of douchebags, but THESE PEOPLE ARE 100% REAL. They aren't all trolls and they aren't an insignificant number. You don't like your movement being viewed this way? Do something about THEM, not the people calling them out.


So, why has it got out of hand to the point of what sounds like illegal activity that the SJW do? Is it becuase SJW is a leftist movement (not saying the other way around is better) so people are not as critical of them?

Sort of. It would be more accurate to say that people in certain arenas completely refuse to criticize them or hold them to any standards of behavior, most importantly on many college campuses where these people are living as independent adults for the first time in their lives.

What happened at DePaul with Milo Yiannopoulos is a perfect example. Whatever you think of Milo's opinions, he was a paid speaker there. Furthermore, the school unfairly screwed over the people who wanted him to speak by forcing them to PAY OUT OF POCKET FOR EXTRA SECURITY before he was permitted to come, something they had never done to a left wing speaker.

Then he comes to speak and a bunch of Black Lives Matter activists rush the stage, seize the microphone, nearly punch him in the face, and refuse to let him speak. They successfully shut down the event because the faculty ordered security, SECURITY THAT THE PEOPLE WHO HAD HOSTED THE EVENT PAID FOR OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKETS, not to intervene.

Think about that. Even if you completely disagree with Milo's politics, think about that. Imagine if a group of skinheads came to a left wing event on a college campus, rushed the stage, grabbed the microphone, physically threatened the speakers, and the faculty of the campus ordered security not to protect the speaker or escort them out. Imagine that people were forced to hire their own security every time they wanted a left wing speaker to host an event on their campus, but not the other way around, and then the campus administrators STILL actively work to undermine their event. Liberals would be up in arms about living in a fascist state. Well that's reality for many conservatives and libertarians on many campuses in the US and Western Europe.

By and large, people who are part of the so-called "regressive left" are spoiled brats who are used to throwing tantrums and getting rewarded. They act like they're oppressed, but in the circles they run in, they are actually constantly treated with kid gloves and benefit from unfair double standards. They get hostile to people asking questions because they're not used to their ideology being questioned or challenged. They harass and threaten because experience has taught them that they won't suffer any real consequences for it, and that most of the time it will work.

Its not just college, its media too. Youtube "Ben Shapiro Zoey Tur". So what you want about Ben, he was the only one being calm and raitonal.

It's everywhere and been a bane of society since they started to question it; Some want to change things a bit, and some want to burn it the ground and start anew.

I'd say it depends on how much humility they have and how much criticism they can take. If it its as bad as people say and they don't listen to reason, maybe burn it to the ground? (What that means, I almost dont want to know.)

I like how his comics make people angry, but I don't think they are good.
All he does is find obvious criticisms of SJWs (usually them displaying seeming hypocrisy) and then draws them exactly as they happened only with people standing face to face instead if of being online and yelling instead of talking. This comic lunges head-first into every pitfall of a typical, unfunny, uninspired political comic. For the most part its readership is comprised almost exclusively of people who only enjoy it because they agree with the views presented therein. Good satire involves wit.

(Nnnot trying to be nitpicky, but Pleb is a lady...)

But yeah, I agree, what she is saying is mostly true, but her comic is not funny. The question, however, is: should we review it ASAP or should we wait until all this SJW fad has died down? I mean, if anything, because she has it already pretty bad. She started this comic bc she got fired of her job when a bunch of SJW harassed her boss telephonically, if I recall correctly. A job she liked. So I think reviewing it right now would be kinda a punch in the gut. I propose we wait a couple of years.

She makes good political comics. They're not always funny. Not sure why you're talking about reviewing her though. There's been all of one other complaint in the thread.
