    Is Buni inspired by the Mad Max kerfluffle?

    In the first comic, it’s a good thing the guy didn’t invite his friend the gynecologist.

    @PeterW (#1), Bunidad’s been in the strip for a long time, the gag may have been suggested by the Mad Max resurrection, butg it’s not out-of line for Buni.

    @Moana (#3), yes, that was the obvious take on it and why Bunidad would agree to go.

    Indeed, that’s why there’s no “w” on the word “rainbo”.

    There’s a Mad Max kerfuffle?

    I think the “Mad Max kerfuffle” refers to a masculinist writer denouncing “Mad Max: Fury Road” as “feminist … propaganda posing as a guy flick,” based on seeing the trailer and reading articles about the movie.

    The term that the masculinists use for themselves is “MRA”, for “Men’s Rights Activist.” There are one or two points that MRAs make which are valid, but, honestly, you can write pretty much every reasonable point they have in two paragraphs, and everything else they’ve ever done is incomprehensible blather.

    Among their incomprehensible blather is fulminating against MAD MAX: FURY ROAD because it has cool characters who are women in it. Indeed, MOST of the cool characters in it are women.

    Logically, you’d expect that, in about half of movies, there would be more female cool characters than male, and in about half, there would be more male cool characters than female. But, apparently, ANY movie in which there are multiple cool female characters is a problem to this particular MRA, and the majority of the MRAs who comment on his blog.

    The rest of us point and laugh.

    For the record, one term for a sane person who wants to protect men from unfair gender roles is “feminist”.

    Well, I guess the MRA guys would have a problem with “Tank Girl”.

    I thought that one was a really fun movie, with the coolest female character ever.

    as opposed to, say, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, or Princess Mononoke?

    Ian Osmond, you obviously haven’t read any of what you are attacking, because the Mad Max criticism came from a site that does not call itself “MRA” or men’s rights.

  12. Stan Jun 1st 2015 at 12:55 am 12

    …or Dorothy?

    Nobody has ever accused the MRAs of making sense. Or being consistent. Or sane. I mean, other than other MRAs.

    The first Mad Max movie (the one called “Mad Max” and everyone has an Australian accent because they are Australians and it was made for the locals) was a totally different film than the later ones.

    We saw “Road Warrior” (no Mad Max in it’s name when it came out here) first. We then went to see MM when it came out to have RW make sense. It made even less sense after we saw MM. Spoiler alert - At the end of MM wife is terribly injured, but before it ends they say she will live. At the start of RW she has died, apparently in the accident at the end of MM.

    MM was a more normal future movie without all the crazy Indian like characters (if that term makes sense). They have gotten even weirder since.

    ” At the end of MM wife is terribly injured, but before it ends they say she will live. At the start of RW she has died, apparently in the accident at the end of MM. ”

    That sometimes happens in real life, too. That’s why doctors tend to be noncommittal about odds of success for treatment.
