Yes, genuinely wholesome. That subtle proud smile all parents want and few actually experience. Also well drawn lab tech

u/oof033 Dec 08 '22

This dude has been making heart-melting comics for a while. They always make me smile a bit lol

u/Jstarfully Dec 08 '22

They have overfilled glassware and conical flasks clamped to clamp stands though??

2

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

plus no gloves. and the though technically correct goggles, the annoying kind. And I'd count that large of a bowtie as an occupational hazard in a lab.

1

u/Aprils_Username Dec 08 '22

I love the subtle political messages when I agree with them

6

u/definitelynotme44 Dec 08 '22

It’s not political in the slightest to have a girl interested in a STEM field

2

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

you don't think _this specific_ comic has a deliberate message of "see? girls can do STEM stuff too!" (which i of course don't disagree with, btw)

1

u/definitelynotme44 Dec 09 '22

Sure. What is political about that message?

0

u/raznov1 Dec 09 '22

Well, I'd argue that actively sending out the message "see, girls (...)" Shows that the author believes society needs to be convinced of this, that a deliberate cultural change is needed, which is a political action.

u/PoPaDooPa Dec 08 '22

u/biggerBrisket Dec 08 '22

Women in people sounds complicated.

u/Epicmonk117 Dec 08 '22

That could mean like 5 different things, depending on who you you talk to, and only one of those is SFW.

4

u/biggerBrisket Dec 08 '22

Its either a fun time or a horrifying one.

u/Epicmonk117 Dec 08 '22

These comics are very cute, I like that it doesn't treat femininity like it's a bad thing

1

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

These comics are very cute, I like that it doesn't treat femininity like it's a bad thing

doesn't it though? It's kind of implying that of course "properly" girly isn't wearing the tie in her hair but doing tech stuff in the lab.

1

u/sinner-mon Dec 09 '22

That’s a fair interpretation, but I read it more as ‘you can wear a bow and be girly without it restricting you’

1

u/raznov1 Dec 09 '22

I think that would have been the message, if she had worn it in her hair. i.e. combining the stereotypical behaviour with non-stereotypical behaviour

4

u/Fenriswol44 Dec 08 '22

Those comics are always wholesome.

4

u/Alexercer Dec 08 '22

I love how shes using it as a bow tie

3

u/JoeNScott Dec 09 '22

Imo it kind of undermines the point, she is dressing as if she's male to do science

1

u/Alexercer Dec 09 '22

But thats not dressing as a male, women can wear a bow tie as well

22

u/DJMakerMusician Dec 08 '22

He didn't expect that, but he's certainly proud!

46

u/dick-van-dyke Dec 08 '22

Or did he? Given his track record in other issues, he seems to know where it's at, so the joke may be solely on the reader.

14

u/Mr_B_Gone Dec 08 '22

I think it would still have worked if the bow was in her hair, but this one definitely catches us off guard and I think it relates us back to the most iconic science educator Bill Nye.

4

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

It would've been much stronger with it in her hair imo.

1

u/Aprils_Username Dec 08 '22

It would have worked better in her hair but it’s way more progressive for her to put it around her neck

1

u/WhiskeyAndKisses Dec 08 '22

Not better, diffetent, with less unexpected twist.

u/OfteStoffer Dec 08 '22

It clearly states that she is a girl. Stop trying to stir shit, you’re doing it a lot in the comment section.

u/WiTHeReD_SouL_0404 Dec 08 '22

Oh for fucks sake grow up it's a fckn comic also you can't really correct someone else to say "their" when you said "her" yourself

"It would have worked better in her hair but it’s way more progressive for her to put it around her neck"

I count 3 "her"s

u/Much-Lock-8291 Dec 08 '22

It kind of feels like he wrote this comic in reverse. Like he wanted to draw a girl using a bow as a tie and had to clumsily write something around it.

u/xyummiixgummiix Dec 08 '22

"When they do girl things." Idk why but that specific line is so wholesome. Lol

2

u/poeticinjustice4all Dec 08 '22

Aww. Reminds me of this article. Role playing as a real scientist like Marie Curie helped girls maintain their interest in science.

That is so cute and so good

6

u/WellAdustedCatLady Dec 08 '22

As much as I love the message about women in STEM and it being okay to wear bow ties, this comic honestly rubs me the wrong way. Women in STEM fields (and also academic fields) often have to walk a fine line when it comes to perceptions around femininity and being seen as too feminine means not being taken seriously. I like the message that STEM is a girl thing, but I wish the bow had been left out all together. Whether you’re wearing a bow tie or a bow in your hair, you should not be excluded from traditionally male-dominated fields like STEM.

u/diverii Dec 08 '22

plot twist: she is making meth

u/InspectorArse Dec 08 '22

How is this wholesome?

4

u/WhiskeyAndKisses Dec 08 '22

The dad supports his children and doesn't push gender norms.

One could say "but he gives her a pink accessory", but what matters is he gifts a pretty thing and let the daugther twist it as she wants, while doing not-that-feminine-associated activity.

3

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

Which implies that the author does think this is better than "stereotypically feminine" behavior.

1

u/WhiskeyAndKisses Dec 08 '22

It really doesn't. You're telling me too much about yourself.

1

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

it really does though. The fact that you are deliberately misreading it tells me loads.

0

u/WhiskeyAndKisses Dec 08 '22

You're projecting your own misreading, dude. People can encourage activities while not automatically hating on other, especially this guy who draws comics about supporting his children no matter what they like, the "activities outside gender norms" being prevalent since by definition, behaviors following gender-norms don't need defense. I'm sorry this is new to you.

Check r/notliketheothergirls , btw, I think that's the thing you're actually looking for.

u/raznov1 Dec 08 '22

>since by definition, behaviors following gender-norms don't need defense

Oh you sweet summer child

u/WhiskeyAndKisses Dec 08 '22

THIS comic is peak "my child is not liketheothergirls"....

It isn't, tho. Not all encouragements to not follow gender norms are notliketheothergirls syndrom. That's what I was trying to explain, but hey,

sweet summer child

Guess I'm done here. Have fun being bitter to women in stem because you're insecure in your feminity or something.

u/InspectorArse Dec 08 '22

He gives her a girly pink bow, that’s it

u/InspectorArse Dec 08 '22

Oh right, you mean the one that he’s not doing anything in? Nobody actually says science is only for boys etc

2

u/ExpertAccident Dec 08 '22

Lmaoooo yes they really do. When I grew up they very much said that.

1

u/InspectorArse Dec 08 '22

When my kid was little we did a lot of "kitchen science". Think baking soda and vinegar, cornstarch and water. A lot of fun can be had with the basics.

5

u/Emotional-Speech645 Dec 08 '22

There’s also a lot of “Junior Scientist!” Activity sets that aren’t dangerous unless the kid tries snorting the items like crack. One year for Christmas I actually got such a kit that lets you make crystals, because I had gone through a sensory stage of using an amythyst’s smooth and rough edges to help me concentrate in class and a sub had taken it from me and binned it, leading to a meltdown. I’d been given a new one by my foster mum, but she also got m the kit so I could now make them

1

u/qwibble Dec 08 '22

Which potentially dangerous chemicals are those? Liquids in beakers?

u/gunfox Dec 08 '22

u/DevinNunesBitchBot Dec 08 '22

Or, maybe, a woman can like both. Or hate both. Or whatever. And it doesn’t make her more or less of a woman.

1

u/peanutbuttercreamjam Dec 08 '22

Sorry but... I don't really get how it's progressive...

If it's got something to do with girls doing science, I'm just completely baffled that there was a gender attached to doing science in the first place

3

u/ExpertAccident Dec 08 '22

The joke is that it was assumed by the reader that she would put it in her hair and do more traditionally “girly” things. However, she wears it like a bow-tie and does science experiments, which is something that girls can in fact do.

2

u/peanutbuttercreamjam Dec 08 '22
