Switch is such a completely gross game. It’s queerface. It takes something that people are DISCRIMINATED and MURDERED for, and turns it into a what-if game that pretends being gay is completely without DANGER and SUFFERING. Penny is terrible for wanting to play it. Also, Lisa should know better but is being silly instead of criticizing it, Sara is being a cheater, Michelle is a homophobe and fatphobic too, Aggie thinks sexuality and political preference are the same thing, Duane is being a “nice guy”, and I don’t know anything bad to say about Fred and Daphne this time but I hate them too. None of these characters have any redeeming qualities at all. You all are bad and should feel bad for reading and enjoying this comic. Dx

We’re playing switch, right?

People, people. I think it's pretty clear Lia is joking.

The final line of her post (which, granted, is in extremely tiny font size, but you could always hit the "Quote" button to read it better) says "We're playing Switch, right?" In other words, she's stating the opposite of what she actually feels.

I just had to be sure. I ain't good at reading sarcasm sometimes.

<clown mask off>

What happened is that I became curious what stream of negativity LO would post about this innocent scene, unhid their post, and was surprised by something completely reasonable. Combining that with the switch theme, I was inspired.

Please understand I was not mocking LO specifically, I was imitating a type of behaviour the whole web is full of.

How dare you say I’m joking! This is a serious matter you bigot apologists!

I didn't think I was being mocked. Just curious if you were being sarcastic. Maybe I should've worded this better.
