And Meg's "I am so mature! Look how mature I'm being! Not like you" speech wins the hilarious hypocrisy contest.

Samantha isn't "stupid" either. Aggie needs to shut the fuck up about that. Especially since she acts like a moron herself.


Seriously. She's like a John Green character most the time. Just valuing white nonconformist intelligence. -_-

Really? There does not seem to be much evidence that supports that. Yes Aggie got angry and said something without thinking, but realized she was wrong seconds later and apologized. Samantha has a persecution complex that she never questions. Now she is doing the bidding of a white girl to bring down a fellow African-American because he is a Muslim. If Aggie was as stupid as her she would believe the rape allegations made against Penny and join forces with Karen to bring her to justice.

True, but if letting her have this moment keeps her from aiding Karen then so be it. While the smear campaign was a severe escalation of things Meg was the only one with real justification in this war.

1. Cyndi sounds, in my headcanon, like a cross between Shirley Temple and Baby Lulu.
2. Bow-chicka-wow-wow.
3. Those nature documentaries lied.
4. AGGIE: "You can tell Samantha's dumb because she doesn't engage in respectability politics!" Yeah, um, Unfortunate Implications have always abounded when it comes to Samantha, and they're the most present in this arc.
5. You wanna know why this would actually be nerve-wracking in RL?
6. Because... as has been demonstrated in this very comic... kids will believe anything. Thankfully, Meg is channeling Syndrome from the Incredibles.
7. Christ, this is painful.
8. Refer to my take on 4.
