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.

Pierre is in my blogroll too, which means katz is required to continue producing the comic. IT IS LEGALLY BINDING.

Plus I am to blame for the confusion about the location of the consulate. I had it in Sydney but that kinda didn’t make sense. Writing skills, I don’t got ’em.

A Canadian embassy could be in Australia, but would presumably be in Canberra.

How’s this then?

Clairedammit: Pierre MacKenzie, will you marry me?

MRA guy listening in: Oh, my god! Don’t answer that! She’s a soul sucking succubus!
Clairedammit: Excuse me!
MRA guy to Pierre, ignoring Clairedammit: Don’t let your evolutionary instincts overcome rational thought or you’ll screw yourself in the end!
Pierre: Look, we’re having a private moment here!
MRA guy: I play this dilemma out in my head every day, man. I’m going to be a vet. I’ll be dug for money like no other.
Clairdammit: Money? What are you talking about?
MRA guy: See! It’s hypergamy!
Pierre: I work at IKEA.

Although personally I like to believe that Pierre was working under cover at IKEA for the NSA ….

Switch “vet” to “senior milking machine technician”, perhaps?

@clairedammit – Yay, you used my idea!

It’s a perfect name! And a couple of comments later, Katz said “Pierre MacKenzie it is.”

And for those of us thinking of tracking down Pierre, there is indeed a Canadian consulate in Sydney. Google is my friend.

I had always understood that embassies are in the capital city but that countries often also have consulates in other important non-capitals.

I like “senior milking technician”. But will Katz like the scenario?

Well, it works either way, we’re not short of pine trees in Oz. 🙂

There’s an active forum thread about Pierre? Oy, must go check!

Kiwi girl, that’s a pain about having all sorts of other stuff stopping you from using contacts. I tried ’em back in the 80s but they had a nasty habit of folding in half and disappearing into my top lid, and I found it too much hassle in the end. I’m so used to wearing specs, and at least they help a bit when there’s dust and grit blowing about. Plus I get recurring bouts of blepharitis, and I suspect having contacts would make it worse.

It was fun making those figures. I had (still have, stored away) a lot of people from Louis’s court, with changes of clothes.

What sort of craft do you do? I know you do knitting/crochet from Ravelry.

Titianblue, that belongs in the forum post.!

Never knew that about consulates! I’ve walked past that one a few times, I think, most recently when a friend and I were trying to find a bottle shop near Circular Quay station and having absolutely no luck. Course, we missed both of the ones practically just across from the station…

other important non-capitals

Sydney is a capital! Of New South Wales. But still.

titianblue – love that script!

I can’t help but read Pierre as this really distraught Montrealer who for everything he tries, can’t seem to get away from the MRAs.

G’day, aworldanon, how are you? 🙂

Embassies are in capitals, consulates are anyplace the parent Gov’t thinks there is a need/is willing to spend the money to establish one.

aworldanon, what’s the Montrealer stereotype? I can think of some generalisation for every other province I can bring to mind (Nunavut, BC, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and Alberta…) except Saskatchewan (not sure if province?) and there.

I’m vaguely aware that they’re quite Francophonic?

I do think of Of Montreal, but they’re from Georgia of all places.

Kitteh, my talents are knitting and crochet. I have tried sewing, but I’m just no good at anything that isn’t straight edges – so I can make curtains fine, and that’s about it. I have also done some beading, and I am interested in learning how to handmake chain maille; I have a couple of books on that, two pairs of pliers, and some silver jump rings and beads to do my first piece – a bracelet.

I would love to see examples of the types of clothing you made, are there any links so I can be nosy?

Embassies are in capitals

ONLY IF THEY HAVE SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT TO SAY ON THE INTERNET

Of course, the irony is, the capitals aren’t necessary. Everything that gets said on the internet is automatically incredibly important.

Kiwi – oooh, chain mail! I like!

Here’s one of someone you might recognise . 😉

And this is Miss Dinah McIver in her 1850s glory. I didn’t make her, just her clothes. A cat doll was too much to resist! She’s much bigger, about 35cm tall.
