The people who took offence with the original strip were, like, around 5 literally who neverheard feminist personal blogs or websites, one was ran by a rape survivor or something, the blog posts were just general sameold whining about the casual use of "rape" in gaming culture and before Gabe and Tycho foolishly made the second strip about that, their posts had like 20 comments or reblogs or whatever.
The most embarrassing thing about it all was Gabe and Tycho with their massively popular cultural phenomenon webcomic and gaming conventions and whatnot actually being so fucking thin-skinned they reacted to some completely insignificant little bloggers talking about their rape trauma with a fauxpology like >>104212307
That's what got everyone's attention and not the original dickwolves strip, their condescending response and the deluge of thereatening comments from fanboys it brought upon the bloggers. That's the newsworthy stuff, two webcomic creators of that calibre actually reacting to something that insignificant with making their strip of the day all about it. It's as embarrassing as a huge hollywood star getting into a twitter argument with some rando nobody who tweeted a negative comment about their acting.
If they'd just kept their mouths shut and ignored the whiners nothing would have happened.
