Pierre Vs. The Manosphere: A Man Boobz-inspired web comic

pierre

Those of you who aren’t regular readers of the comments here may not be aware of A Voice for Pierre, the hilarious new webcomic by regular Man Boobz commenter Katz, inspired by Man Boobz trolls and dopey Boobz more generally. Here’s the first strip, about a poor paranoid MRA afraid to take his sons to Canada lest they be attacked and possibly killed by wild feminists. Naturally, it’s based on a TRUE STORY.

You can find more Pierre at the A Voice for Pierre website.

Kitteh, that was an extremely important post even though you omitted capitals, and !!!!1!!!!1

Inigo looks lovely. Did you hand-stitch those seams, because they look extremely neat? And I wish you were taking orders for cat dolls in those lovely clothes.

I’ve recently finished my first properly intermediate-level crochet project, image soon to be up on Ravelry. 🙂 Just need to grab the camera…

LOL he’s not Inigo, though I love watching Princess Bride ‘cos Inigo looks a bit like him! That’s Mr K, though I made le petit roi long before I had any idea we’d ever be in contact.

Yup, those seams are all hand done – backstitch. I’ve never learned to use a sewing machine very well. Plus it wouldn’t have been practical for the really small stuff, only for the long seams on Dinah’s clothes.

Somewhere around here I’ve pics of her in the Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I dresses I made for her to see if I could. Must find them.

Awww! 🙂

Okay, here is Missy doing her Anne Boleyn look,

and her Elizabeth I ‘Armada Portrait’ look.

This is just so much win! (Although the one with Diogenes is my favorite.)

@Kitteh, those are fantastic. Days of work in each one?

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Kiwi girl – merci! It took days and weeks. I can’t remember how long it took to do the Armada dress but it might have been a month or more. The underskirt was cream, and I had to stitch the gold and silver braid over it (the silver doesn’t really show in the photo) and then the pearls and garnets and their gold backing individually. Biggest hand-sewing job I’ve ever done.

Pfft, i have done better art and issues wise, but not so much in spelling and word uses.(only post on image boards)
Oh and good job at this having a man bare the problem’s and not having women in it even though its woman’s issues.
The mras are worse then you think, they are not just some extinction burst, its a backlash, when feminism got stronger, worse and worse degrading torture porn was created in response, sex media targeted at little girls even more (bratz babies/monster high 6+)
In the time of muhammad women were ARGUING with him, telling him its not right to make everyone believe woman are stupid and compare them to donkeys.
But history has shown us time and time again, if nobody cares enough, the wost of the men will make us slaves again, and if nobody cares enough, they will let it happen. (most women don’t care and would gladly become slaves again)
The witch burnings, woman were the wise woman, and the church didn’t like it when wise women warned people to stay away from sugar because it ruins the teeth, so the church killed most woman, and only stopped because they were running out of women to make more male babies(the french said that), and to much men were getting accused later on… you see, when it becomes THEIR problem.
I could go on and on, i just.. sorry about this.

@Kitteh, you are clearly multi-talented. 🙂 Here’s the photos I have taken of the crochet necklace I finished off yesterday:

Detail of a flower: http://www.flickr.com/photos/87531085@N02/8351407281/

Those dangling bits are three-dimensional so I had to crochet two sides to each one and join them together. All that sewing up, but nothing compared to yours. 🙂

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Kiwi girl, that’s gorgeous! I don’t think I’ve seen anything like that before. And it could have all sorts of possibilities for adding brooches, couldn’t it, if the flowers are solid enough? I like, I really like.

Oh couldn’t resist looking at the pic of the computer kitties too!

@The Kitteh’s Unpaid Help

Your stuff is full of win, too! So much win on this thread!

@Kiwi Girl

Your stuff, too! Wow. I am so impressed with everbody’s talent!

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

There’s a lot of talented people on this site, fersures!

@Kitteh and Some Girl, thanks for the compliments. 🙂

Kitteh – I hadn’t though of brooches. I used the sewing on of the beads to sew the flowers onto the necklace body. An alternative would be to sew the flowers on, lose the beads, and use brooches as the middle parts of the flowers. Would be interesting regardless of whether or not the brooches matched.

Currently I am starting to go through my crochet and knitting magazines, putting each pattern into an excel sheet so, for example, if I want knitted sock patterns, I can just sort/filter on the columns. It’s taking me *ages* and not helped by my sudden realisation that I should include the yarn weight so if I want a sock pattern for 4-ply, I’m not wading through patterns of the wrong yarn weight. /sigh

@Kiwi Girl

Your spreadsheet sounds like something I would do. Organizational high-five?

@Some Girl, possibly OCD suffers unite high-five! But I have so many magazines, I don’t want to look through each of them when I’m in the mood to do a particular product. And then there’s my electronic ones too… oh, darn, now I need a column for paper vs. electronic…

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Kiwigirl – I was thinking that if you did the centre of the flower, the main one at least, fairly tightly and plain, you could put different brooches on it according to the mood of the day. Would that work?

Kiwi girl

Kitteh, yes that would work as the first row of each flower is a simple double-crochet/chain repeat. Vintage brooches would look really nice.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

That’s what I was thinking. 🙂

You could call the kitty Maple Syrup, if it’s the right color.

Actually given that this is Pierre’s cat maybe you should call it Bon-Bon.

I figured that if he called the kitty Scented Candles he might get some odd looks from the neighbors while calling for it.

“Chat rouxlette” is material for a mini-comic, at least.

Is there a joke to Bon Bon? Because if there is I missed it.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

I read it as a pun on French “bon” and the bonbons feminists apparently spend our time eating.

katz

Oh right, the bonbon-eating feminists!

(I’ll wait until tomorrow to actually pick a name because I want everyone to get a chance to make suggestions.)

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

What does rouxlette mean? I stuck it into an online translator (source of all wisdom!) and got russet for roux, but nothing for rouxlette.

katz

Just a pun on Chat Roulette, right?

Bublé is fun to say. [Shameless self-promotion.]

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

That makes sense!

::looks around to see if Kiwi girl is still about::

Hmm, okay, it’s 8.30pm in NZ, maybe not.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Bublé always makes me think of Gomez calling Morticia boobalah.

Heh, yes I used Google Translate to get the French for ginger cat (I knew chat, and should have guessed the other would be something like rouge!). After I did the past, I thought it looked so close to Chat Roulette, that yes it was a pun. 🙂

Maybe we should have called our cream point ragdoll that, he’s always telling us what’s on his mind, and as he is so intelligent, he always has a lot to say. 😉

“Chat rouxlette” is fantastic!

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Chat Roulette would be a very apt name for a cat. Like you say, they can be full of talk, but it’s a gamble as to what a particular word means on any given occasion.

A Maddie Glossary

Mrrt – hello servants

Mrrt – open the door

Mrrt – where’s my breakfast

Mrrt – stop doing whatever you’re doing and pat me

Mrrt – stop annoying me with all this patting
