I was never too into it myself, but I knew people who were; I used to hang out on FurryMUCK in the West Corner of the Park, one of the token humans.  Seems like a lifetime ago.  (Heck, for my nieces and nephews, it is.)

And here's a handy reference chart (http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_j9PQWPKjVZs/SYvTH1QyPZI/AAAAAAAAAdI/JG9AEI-n-kE/s1600/geek.gif) from ... 2002, dang.

Absolutely disgusting. MommyMilker's hair and LilBeef's shirt should be anything but white to contrast with their non-scalp hair1!
but seriously, the nose-ring and fingerless gloves are nice touches, and this is far from the most horny VTuber avatar I've seen.

So, it's proven that, not only did Aurelia know the fetish implications of her screen-name, she's cynically willing to exploit it for clicks and publicity. So, she's got a lot future ahead of her as a streamer. I wonder if she also does rant videos when she talks about artistic or political matters about which she has no real knowledge?

I've got to say that I'm not really comfortable with the "MommyMilkers" avatar. I guess the feeling is that Jeph is being the cynical one and using Aurelia as his means.

I'm pretty sure that the point, to Jeph, is to let his readers laugh at Clinton's reaction to the fact his mother is streaming through a 'sexy' anthro-cow filter. However, I've got to say that it personally leaves me cold and it is just an eye roller and a total miss for me: Something from which I intend to move on from as soon as and efficiently as possible.

In universe, I absolutely refuse to believe that Aurelia doesn't understand the fetish implications and, honestly, I can't see her viewing MommyMilker as her 'inner self'. It just doesn't scan right as being in-character for me. So, yeah, she's selling her stream by appealing to a certain bit of the Internet and nothing more.

do you notice that you're taking a character who we've explicitly seen is playing with music, drugs, sex, and now games, and then you're saying it doesn't "scan right" that she's playing with performance entertainment and, yes, being a sexy model, a fully clothed one i should add. "selling", sure, but "nothing" more?
i don't dispute that you're finding it off-putting, but can you see why i find your other conclusions bound up with that feeling a bit off-base?
edit: i mean, it's common to most of our species to take enjoyment and satisfaction in delighting and titillating, as well as just plain old being attractive. surely you've enjoyed, say, putting on an outfit you've worked on, and liked feeling good-looking, for example

I'd say that having a sexy cow avatar on the internet completely makes sense with what else we've learned about Aurelia so far. Especially if she's a stoner.

And if she's streaming enough to have a nickname for her fans, then she 100% knows that there is constantly a percentage of her audience that is masturbating to her. To be frank they should write it into the terms of service for Twitch.

OK, so this technically makes Clinton's mom a furry.

I think this is *the* first piece of fiction I've ever seen that has a character that's a furry. In the sense of having an anthropomorphic animal as a persona/avatar that they use to interact with others, not in the sense of the character actually *being* an anthro animal.

At least, I can't offhand think of any other examples.

Normally it’s one where the majority of characters are anthropomorphic animals, majority mammals of various species.
That said, they probably mean furry fetish comic, where all of the above is true but the character designs, story, and even setting are exaggerated along the “sexy” axis. For a given version of sexy, at least.

I think what makes this kind of cringey is the realization that now that Clinton is on that channel, a certain percentage of the audience (certainly a smaller percentage, but most likely nonzero) is masturbating to him... Aurelia signed up for that, Clinton got dragged in.

Also, the iPhone dictionary doesn’t contain the word masturbating, apparently...

Yes, one single joke I can ignore, certainly. I'm just afraid this is going to be like a regular character trait of hers and the source of many jokes and references. See: Marten's mom being a dominatrix - so in half the strips she's in there's some sort of dominatrix joke. Dale and Marigold like anime which is often referenced when they are present. Steve eats cereal. These all started out as single jokes that then became ongoing things we associate with the character.

I find furries to be deeply disturbing so I just really hope there won't be ongoing furry references in the comic.

I think I get where you're coming from, but my reaction is the opposite. As a furry, as I implied in my previous comment, I'd love for there to be a character who's a furry in *any* piece of fiction, especially if the character is not exclusively the butt of a joke or deliberately framed as a freak (like that CSI episode way back when).

Furries have been the Internet's punching bag pretty much as long as mainstream Internet has existed, and I'd like to see someone switch it up in at least in one piece of media.

And for the record - Clinton mom's avatar is mildly unsettling to me. But in my case, the reaction would be the same if the avatar was any generic "super-hot babe", mainly due to contrast in how the character is presented and how she interacts with her fans online. For obvious reasons, the fact that the avatar is a cow doesn't phase me at all.

there's a lot of things to unpack here, in this entire thread really, but i just woke up and i'm gonna swing by a bit of these ones, cuz i feel like i'm taking crazy pills to be frank. just gonna throw it out without translating into 'proper' language for now cuz i gotta go

jokes in a joke strip
a many-years spanning career
oh the sex worker but not the corporate ceo or the musician or the baker huh
a hobby involving multiple storytelling genres that is a significant swathe of a country's storytelling output
a fucking meme that Jeph did like TWICE, years apart, but the fans ran into the ground

Yeah I guess you're acting like the other things offend me somehow, which they don't.  They're just all things that started off as one-off jokes.  Early 2000s Jeph didn't make Marten's mom a sex worker to be inclusive or accurately reflect the real world or anything like that, but because it was a funny punchline. It was played for laughs. Pointing this out makes me anti-SW? And what, anti-cereal? Is that even a thing?

got a minute from work to bang out a quick response

of course they're as much jokes as anything, which is why i said "jokes in a joke strip", because as it turns out a lot of things are jokes in a joke strip. Aurelia's avatar is as much a joke as anything.

you brought up those examples in a negative-contrasting context with this harmless joke that you literally said you'd walk out forever about, so i don't think it's exactly a stretch to think that maybe, just maybe, you had some negative associations with these other harmless things.
i'm not even trying to accuse of being offended, exactly, though don't think i don't recognize that "acting like" reframe.

I'm not sure what you mean by "negative-contrasting." I was simply providing examples of character details in this comic that originally began as jokes or to provide material for jokes. One can reasonably infer from the fact that I am still currently reading the comic that I do not find the inclusion of dominatrices, anime, or cereal to be offensive or disturbing.

What are you even trying to say here? I certainly don't recognize it.  Is this a more innocuous way of saying it? "From what you have written, you seem to have misinterpreted that the other things offend me somehow, which they don't."

Yeah, I had the same thought. And if you had 40k subs but only an average of 3k concurrent viewers, that'd be strange. But 40k followers and 3k concurrent actually does track, more or less.

For anyone not in the know, vis a vis streaming, following someone's stream is just a case of hitting the 'follow' button. As you might expect, being a subscriber or sub to a streamer involves a monthly fee.

but

she's not even in lingerie. she's just a little risque, just being different and playful and attractive in a way outside her over-culture's assigned "respectability" role for her, as a middle-aged mother. the current of disapproval and condemnation through fan reactions here and elsewhere, while not nearly as bad as it could be, well it's a damned familiar taste, i think, to women and to minorities in general, who find ourselves often enough subjected to it in our own lives when being harmless.

No one is being hurt, so I'm mostly fine with this. Slightly put off by the way the similar skin and eye tone make them melt together eldritchly.

People treat Anthropomorphic animals strangely. I've never undestood that.

Aurelia should definitely have explained that there'd be three thousand people watching before starting the stream, though. Informed consent is important.

I don't care about the streaming or the audience or her avatar, I'm uncomfortable that she guilt tripped her kid into hanging out with her and then immediately tried to get him on her stream without telling him anything about it. Popping in on your mom's stream when she's got like twenty viewers is a much different situation than being watched by three thousand people. Learning that this is a revenue stream for her, and having him on is likely to cause a boost in donations, makes it feel even more exploitative.

And jfc, someone can enjoy being sexy or flirtatious or whatever and still understand and respect their children not wanting to be directly involved in it. Aurelia can do whatever she pleases on her own time, but she's being really inconsiderate of Clinton. And this isn't the first time.

Denial and moving on to other things is an excellent way to handle that fact.

Which is why it's highly unlikely Clinton, written properly, would react  that way.

Maybe that's the way Jeph is planning to take this: Aurelia is flattered at being seen as desirable in any context but doesn't really get just how cringy or outright alarming it can be it until Clinton pulls up the fan-page (that she never visits) that is full of... charitably 'off-colour' remarks by the weirdest 'fans' about her and what they fantasise about doing to her. So, the whole thing becomes a metaphor for how little Jeph likes or even feels comfortable knowing the existence of the more aggressively hardcore sexualised parts of his fandom.

Your "fully-clothed bit of transhumanist eye candy" to me is a disturbing sexualized cartoon cow with oversized human breasts. Not comparable to anything related to the most sexual of Jeph's art involving humans.

I don't want to invalidate your feelings, but what is sexually "disturbing" is a very subjective notion. If you find something unappealing, I confess to not really understanding why you can't move past it. I'm sure there will be plenty of depictions of the human body that you find appealing and I don't like. It's not like the comic is about to turn into "furry cheesecake, all the time". It's one image at this point, and it's not like it features nudity. Yes, it's deliberately sexual, but in a very "PG" way.

At least, I can't offhand think of any other examples.

Well, Between Failures has some furry content, and some of the characters were originally furries in a previous comic the author did.  And Sabrina Online is sort of furry adjacent, and is one of the longest running webcomics still updating, you might want to give them a look.

I dunno, since Aurelia shut down his going to the bar, he has had one positive facial expression on-screen. Doesn't seem like he's doing all this just because he wants to. Like yeah it's not the most malicious version of guilt tripping, but I'm sure it's affecting his decisions right now. Like agreeing to go on a stream he was clearly uncomfortable with from the start.

And like, streaming isn't just hanging out. When you have that many viewers, streaming is a job, not just something you do for fun. If she wants to hang out with her son she should do it offline, unless he is enthusiastic and fully informed of what to expect -- like the style/format of the stream, the way he should conduct himself so he doesn't make a faux pas, and the amount and disposition of her viewers. And you do a freaking test run before you go live so your co-host isn't blindsided by your erotic avatar in front of your entire audience.

I dunno, since Aurelia shut down his going to the bar, he has had one positive facial expression on-screen. Doesn't seem like he's doing all this just because he wants to. Like yeah it's not the most malicious version of guilt tripping, but I'm sure it's affecting his decisions right now. Like agreeing to go on a stream he was clearly uncomfortable with from the start.

And like, streaming isn't just hanging out. When you have that many viewers, streaming is a job, not just something you do for fun. If she wants to hang out with her son she should do it offline, unless he is enthusiastic and fully informed of what to expect -- like the style/format of the stream, the way he should conduct himself so he doesn't make a faux pas, and the amount and disposition of her viewers. And you do a freaking test run before you go live so your co-host isn't blindsided by your erotic avatar in front of your entire audience.

You’re right about the bar... tho I think I’m still on Aurelia’s side. If a friend showed up to my house and told me they invited a stranger over for dinner without having asked me if either one was welcome, then disappeared for making out, then made it clear they wanted to ditch me for the rest of the night, I’d be really hurt. It seems reasonable to me to ask that the person who invited themselves over actually spend time with you.

This week is turning out better than I thought...I hate drugs especially how casually it's tossed around but this week has been fun instead of cringy.

I know that these kind of people exist and it might be the only way they could get money so I can't complain about them, I'm just glad that Jeph took the high road here(no pun intended) with the drug use instead of the "haha she's stone" road. It's a niche, it's at home so she isn't hurting by driving after getting high, and she's aware of the consequences of her actions.

Good luck to her in her endevours...

Not really. I mean, sure, it means you've got an actual cult going, and you're not talking to just a basement full of weirdos anymore, but I think the "kinda a big deal" threshold is having, oh, 100k subscribers? Most of the cults, er, channels I subscribe to on YouTube (i.e. OSP) have 1 milllion-2million subscribers, but a few niche ones like John Francis (covers Oxygen Not Included, Rimworld, that sort of thing) are in the 40k-50k range.

I'm not sure what the threshold is for making an actual living from streaming is.

---

I would like to say that I had no sexual thoughts about the cow avatar until today's strip. Now that cow furry porn has come up, I am now involuntarily remembering the other furry porn I've run into. Furry porn on the internet is like coffee grounds in the kitchen - it somehow makes its way into the most unlikely places. You're not at all looking for it, but there it is. You'll be watching a Last Week Tonight segment, and suddenly, he's talking about anthropomorphic rat porn.

I'd be a bit put off if I were Aurelia. Making furry porn about your avatar seems pretty invasive.

Close. It's The Hobbit. The dwarves are looking for a burglar when they recruit Bilbo. Because, y'know, a single tiny guy with furry feet is going to be enough to sneak an entire mountain's worth of treasure away from a dragon. Bilbo of course is decidedly not a burglar, being an entirely respectable fellow who doesn't like adventures, since they make you late for dinner.

It's Gandalf who talks him into going anyway, since the dwarves weren't going to talk anyone into anything.

Disagreed about the bar thing.  She may have been clumsy AF, but getting him to be somewhere *else* than the bar is good right now.  Especially when one is inexperienced in relationship, a bit of space after the first snog can be a good thing for all involved.  Especially since Elliot is “captive” at work.  ’Tis best that Clin-ton be a bit embarassed about his mother’s hobby/side-line and have some time.

eh, it could be invasive, but she seems more flattered than anything, in the main in this context. and why shouldn't she be?
i get the main demographic that's gonna participate on a forum discussion of this comic aren't, like, used to this sort of thing i suppose, but there's plenty of people that like to feel sexy and appreciated. context matters a whole helluva lot, for example public catcalling can be obnoxious (most guys who attempt it are really bad at it), but like... it can be harmless. and fit into the vibe of the performance she's putting on.

i mod for a vtuber, and i've had to step in a couple times when someone started crossing boundaries in chat that she wasn't comfortable with, from people that honestly seemed fairly well-meaning just too enthusiastic for the most part. but she gets to set what those are. it's her space to perform in, to play with her actual friends and her fans in.

i'm not saying you can't set those boundaries tighter for yourself. i do! just i want to encourage examining those on the regular. i had, and still have, a lot of baggage that causes me to needlessly, uselessly, often harmfully constrict myself. (gasp, a queer person having self-repression issues, i know who'd have thought). and i don't want you to hurt yourselves the same way i hurt myself. make different mistakes!  :parrot:

This is probably just how my mind works but I can't quite shake the feeling that Aurelia having contact with this 'SexDrawer69' won't be just a random moment of 'colour'. Maybe we'll even learn the face behind the name one day!

That said, okay, if Aurelia is okay with it then I suppose she' s okay with it and that should be enough for Clinton. However, I do wonder if she's aware of the really weird fringe that inevitably must exist in her fandom and the things they write about what they fantasise doing to her.

admittedly, that can be a THING, and not always a happy one. i might be a little more cavalier in my attitude than some about it, since it's an unavoidable part of existing in public, especially being part of a visible minority. in my over-culture at least, lower members of the caste system are regularly scrutinized sexually at increased rates by the upper castes than those castes do to themselves. so like... had to confront my baggage and concerns and the real risks to even get to exist in public in the first place. which ain't great, but unfortunately i'm not allowed to unleash my holy crusade across the land yet so y'know

People also get horny about antropomorphic animals. Less surprising. People get horny about table legs if they stare at them long enough.

Clinton gets protective about people he cares about. Hmm.
Hope prediction: Next comic, Clinton will be slightly uncomfortable with this whole thing, but will respect Aurelias agency.

It got me thinking about the casual sexism kids tend to display to their mothers, especially those who don't work... And that back in the 80s and 90s there were a lot more girls in IT than there were later... And how a number of those lasses gave up IT because they found raising kids more fulfilling. Which gave me a vision of one of the girls I used to decode packet traces and other esoteric Internet stuff with being kidsplained how to use Instagram or whatever because they don't reckon momma is technical...

In my anecdotal experience taking IT courses, I certainly did see more women who were older than even my “mature student” self (generally just there to keep their skill sets current), than I did younger women.  Honestly, though, given how sick the subculture is, I can’t necessarily blame anyone for wanting nothing to do with it.

Or was it all just spontaneous and unplanned and basically just an accident... and she just realized at the last moment she could use it all as an opportunity to get him to open up?

Doesn't seem like this to me at all. You may be projecting your life experiences onto the comic. I don't see anything in this comic that screams "last chance" to me, nor does it seem like she wants to badger him about what he's going through. My mom tries to badger her way into my life on a regular basis, but I just don't see this in the way Aurelia's acting.

Now, there may be some merit in her using the whole streaming thing as a way to bring up that sharing these parts of ourselves that we've kept secret so far, while awkward, can also be very rewarding. But frankly, I don't see her as being all that sneaky. Anyone who has an instantly recognizable lying voice is probably the opposite of sneaky. Unless of course... she only makes it sound like she's lying when she WANTS to be caught!

Aurelia hasn't really been featured enough for her complete personality to be obvious, but let's took to the children she raised: Clinton started off as a creep and still occasionally has terrible social skills. Claire has bad anxiety and catastrophic thinking and is socially manipulative. So I more or less agree with that interpretation of the events, and yes, I do believe it was intentional.

Not really. I mean, sure, it means you've got an actual cult going, and you're not talking to just a basement full of weirdos anymore, but I think the "kinda a big deal" threshold is having, oh, 100k subscribers? Most of the cults, er, channels I subscribe to on YouTube (i.e. OSP) have 1 milllion-2million subscribers, but a few niche ones like John Francis (covers Oxygen Not Included, Rimworld, that sort of thing) are in the 40k-50k range.

I'm not sure what the threshold is for making an actual living from streaming is.

Keep in mind though, subscribers on YouTube and subscribers on Twitch are two totally different things. To subscribe to someone's YouTube channel is just a click of a button to keep track of their uploads. To subscribe to someone's Twitch involves paying monthly as a direct means to support the streamer. If you subscribe to someone's YouTube for a year, it costs you nothing. To subscribe to someone's Twitch for a year will run you about sixty bucks.

Streamers will generally make 50% of a sub cost after Twitch's take. To put that in perspective, if Aurelia does have 40k subs (I maintain that was erroneously stated, either in-universe by her, or by Jeph himself, and that the intended metric was meant to be followers) that would mean that if they're all subbed at the lowest tier -say $4.99 USD per month, as it is in our world- and Aurelia is making $2.50 a month from each sub?

2.50 x 40,000 = 100,000

Which would mean that she'd make $1.2m a year. So yeah, big BIG difference to subscribers on YouTube. The follower>subscriber ratio for most Twitch channels, even the biggest, is often very low, so if someone has enough followers that their ratio still nets them 40k subs and, ergo, six figures a month in sub fee cuts alone? Then yeah, they're pretty damn big.

I don't recall any other characters mentioning student loan debt (though I may be wrong). I think it's more likely that it's just not a topic Jeph wants to spend time on in his comic rather than something special about Claire or Clinton.

I doubt it, Aurelia said it was a recent development.

Tai mentioned student loans at least once.

Also, shows anyone else with silly ideas what happened to the last ones who tried.

Yay had their way with them.  They're now reduced to using signal flags for communications.

I vaguely remember Marten mentioning student loans very early on.

She can look, but she can't leer.

Aurelia is happy that Clinton is trying to build a relationship with Elliot. However, that last panel tells me that, should Clinton so much as miss a single step, she is going to pounce!

eh, it could be invasive, but she seems more flattered than anything, in the main in this context. and why shouldn't she be?
i get the main demographic that's gonna participate on a forum discussion of this comic aren't, like, used to this sort of thing i suppose, but there's plenty of people that like to feel sexy and appreciated. context matters a whole helluva lot, for example public catcalling can be obnoxious (most guys who attempt it are really bad at it), but like... it can be harmless. and fit into the vibe of the performance she's putting on.

i mod for a vtuber, and i've had to step in a couple times when someone started crossing boundaries in chat that she wasn't comfortable with, from people that honestly seemed fairly well-meaning just too enthusiastic for the most part. but she gets to set what those are. it's her space to perform in, to play with her actual friends and her fans in.

i'm not saying you can't set those boundaries tighter for yourself. i do! just i want to encourage examining those on the regular. i had, and still have, a lot of baggage that causes me to needlessly, uselessly, often harmfully constrict myself. (gasp, a queer person having self-repression issues, i know who'd have thought). and i don't want you to hurt yourselves the same way i hurt myself. make different mistakes!  :parrot:

Just so long as Aurelia doesn't have to deal with any fans that go way down the parasocial relationship rabbit hole and they try to stop by (it happens IRL from time to time).

The organically vast amount of slow-moving changes in the characters' lives as well as all of the moments of interaction between them does allow for a remarkably deep experience of being able to see and feel where and who they have been !!  The following was a different time for Clinton!!

A side note, it is wonderful to encounter these Jephvangelion moments throughout the story, including how they subtly yet acutely portray that QC takes place in a far different version of the world than we have yet been given a full picture!

IIRC, Marten mentioned that the proceeds from one of his mom's encounters went to defray some of his tuition.

Found it. It was so early that it's in ohnorobot.

one more of these, i hope it will be ok where this is essentially last week's thread! 
I am not sure if this is connected with MM420, theoretically she was already working on this much earlier in the story, and the bass shares the same three main colors with MommyMilkers !!!  which is amazing whether it wasn't or was a complete coincidence on Jeph's part!!

Either way, it is certainly an earlier glimpse at another creative hobby of Aurelia's!!
