I think we should be pushing for a record on the old thread.  And therefore ignoring this one until the moment Monday's comic is posted.

See if we can get to 17!

I'm hoping for more cuddles but I suspect that we're going to see two sets of chicken wings.  Either that or we'll get to catch up on what the others are doing.

As for getting the other thread to 17 pages, I'm having flashbacks to Obama's election in 2008 and I'm not even American (nor have I lived in the US).

That was strip #2757. When we discussed it at that time, most agreed that this was just an imagined scenario in Marten's (or Hannelore's) head.

But another statement from Marten in the same strip was that he would not let himself be involved with an intern who had a crush on him. Time will show.

The trope I meant is All just a dream. If I remember correctly, after Marten and Dora first hooked up, there was talk that Jephzibah should write a pregnancy scare arc, to which he replied, in newspost, that he would never use a comedy trope like that. I seem to recall him denouncing it as a sitcom technique, but I might recall that incorrectly.

The mouse strip instead is a hypothetical - the same as if Marten had said "Imagine Emily wearing fairy wings and bringing me mice". Drawing it out just makes it funnier.

Strip #2653 might be relevant in the current context. Claire got upset when learning about the Delilah affair.

Yeah I wondered about that for a long time, just Claire going 'oh you're going to bring up a sexual subject at work' or having a worry Marten was taken.

Global Moderator Comment Discussions about the implications of Claire's gender status on her potential relationship with Marten are now off-limits. Marten and Claire are fictional characters. Jeph will reveal whatever he wants to tell us about their relationship through the comic. Speculation hurts real people who are members of this community and it is quite clear from the last few days that it's not possible for this sort of discussion to take place without that hurt occurring.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

Will it still be allowed to discuss the impact of potential psychological || psychiactric issues that may arise?  I have brought them up before, and I can't speak for others who have them as well, I can certainly say that they're probably more relevant to the discussion to how things evolve.  Also, the replies haven't been as viscerally nasty, so I don't think that at this moment, that the mod-hammer needs to come down on them.

What part of off-limits is hard to understand?

the replies haven't been as viscerally nasty 

The problem is that, for someone who is not affected by the subject in hand (in this case, being trans), the comments in question might seem tame, a person who has to deal with that life and the issues that arise from it day by day, a seemingly harmless comment may deeply hurt them. And I know of a few people that were hurt by such posts and I know that more than once I was the cause of such pain.

What I want to say I guess is: if the mods say off-limits, it's off-limits for a reason. Stick to it.

Is it cold in here?

Global Moderator Comment Just keep it consistent with what you'd speculate about a cis/cis couple. Claire's Ativan prescription is as relevant as Dora's insecurities.

That was fully along the same lines as the speculation that I've had, namely that both of them may have issues that could get in the way of a potential relationship.  And they have nothing to do with anything that wouldn't possibly affect *any* other potential couple.

What part of off-limits is hard to understand?
I know one thing that is off-limits, and was just enquiring about another thing that may be potentially hurtful to some people, but even though I can't speak for the class of people who have psych* issues, I am a member of it, so I know what minefields that could potentially show up.  I'm 100% behind the mods on their decision here.
