@joe: This strip was ultimately the reason why I turned on the mature flag. There came a point where I decided that could no longer just vaguely dance around the subject at hand, and that started with hunter's confession, building up from there.

Another problem is the nature of a flashback. Especially one that I don't want to drag on forever. I need to explain and show enough about what's going on without having to go into an entire sub-arc to explain it in order to get the message across.
that was long ago
@Campion: remember when you didn't show benni or hunter being raped? you came a long way my friend
oh my god, I hope that's not what I think is on her stomach

Poor Benni he's still has that innocent mentality. ;(
Damn
Damn.
What's fucked-up is that this kind of stuff actually happens.
It's important that people know that.

Today's comic, well, isn't pretty.
@Long Tom: thats a marketing thing, not a TV thing. And wasn't there a minor stir about it somehow being sexual assault or some such nonsense? I seem to recall that but only extremely vaguely. I'm probably combining multiple memories together. Anyway, Maybe it's more allowable for documentary type things, but I remember a show about a girl in africa...Pippi or something? Was on Discovery back in the day. She was four or five, half naked, and they showed it with no blurring.

EDIT: Tippi! Tippi Degre.
@Campion: oh! Well dang, I'm a numf, aren't I? ....wait, that's the socks, I was wondering how people doubted she was a girl now :P ah whatever!
@Kendra Kirai: Actually, the old Coppertone ad picture of the dog pulling on the young girl's swimsuit? They cannot use it nowadays.
I appreciate that we're really seeing 1: how common this stuff can be, and 2: how many different shades there are to it. It's not just one overly simplified thing.

@Kendra Kirai: She had mentioned that winters were very harsh, and she's wearing several layers of clothing. So, socks would be worn in the colder climate, along with some fashion of shoes or boots. Things like jackets, shirts, shorts, etc., would all be hand-me-downs, but items that see more personal, such as socks and underwear, would need replacement as the kit grows.
@Campion: what, her toplessness? You can get away with showing young girls up to around four or five topless on regular cable TV. Even if she's like eight or nine, well....Flora didn't seel that well fed. No padding to make anything stand out.

Seemed pretty obvious to me, I mean.

@Kendra Kirai: Keep in mind what she said (and how she looked) when she started this walk down memory lane.
@Campion: Wait, people were doubting that? ....and here I am confused about SOCKS. :P

@Kimmy: It also destroys any doubt that she is, in fact, a girl.
Woah! Bold move actually showing between Flora's legs like that. I wasn't really expecting it.

Guess it really hammers home the fact that this was a thing that REALLY happened to her.
Wait, socks? ....isn't everyone barefoot? :3
@Campion: your welcome keep up the good work
