As he had previously remarked on the lack of any audience feedback here at A Moment Of Cerebus, I proudly faxed Dave Sim a batch of recent posted comments (particularly to the Dave Sim: Pariah King Of Comics! and The iPetition: Ray Cornwall posts) and asked if he had any response at all. The following fax arrived a couple of days later...

The Impossible Things To Believe Before Breakfast are still impossible for any rational, thinking person to believe -- unless their thinking is being "assisted" by totalitarian feminist coercion. As was the case with Lawrence Summers when he stated the generally known fact that women drop out of the higher maths and sciences at university in prodigious numbers and that that should be factored into the way those programs are structured.
I thank Almighty God that, by happenstance rather than design, I occupy a place where totalitarian feminist coercion is close to completely ineffectual, so I am able to be a free-thinking person who recognises when a Thing Is Impossible To Believe.
I also count myself fortunate that, as a societal pariah, I have roughly 500 open-minded friends with whom I can comfortably associate since I don't foresee totalitarian feminism loosening its stranglehold on society in the foreseeable future -- or, in fact, in my lifetime. I accept that -- except for those 500 people -- I'm unwelcome in my society and I have acquiesced in that as graciously as it is within my ability to do so. I discuss things openly when I discuss them with relevant facts and fact-based opinions. That is, generally, no longer permitted in our society so I can't say that I think I'm missing out on anything by being unwelcome. If I was welcomed by people who close off whole areas of discussion for ideological reasons, THEN I would worry.
Ask AMOC viewers to limit their comments to the Impossible Things To Believe Before Breakfast. Those are the point: not who Dave Sim is or what his motives might be or how you WANT Dave Sim to behave. Stick to answering ideas with ideas.
