You know, I can't even imagine freaking out that bad because someone kissed their fingers and tapped my nose.

If Lisa ever touched my face without my permission,I'd bite her fingers off. I mean think about it guys. What if Sara wasn't gay and was just really grossed out by physical contact.

I know that it turned out she is but still.

Also still annoyed with Aggie's only reasons for hating her are as superficial as she claims Penny is.

This is a decent idea, too. It might not even be all physical contact, but physical contact from someone she doesn't know very well. I think a lot of people could relate to that. Like, I barely know you, don't touch my face. o_o

Then she'd be obsessing about being touched, not screaming about being kissed. It's the focus of the freak out that is the most telling.

Also, Sara's insistence on Aggie playing dumb with Penny, which is what made Lisa suspicious in the first place. When by all evidence Penny was tense because she had gotten near her ex. And Aggie, by all evidence, hadn't even noticed Penny. (That Sara was ultimately RIGHT was dumb luck.)

Unrelatedly...

K-A is flirting with Jack in the background of #2.

#5 is just plain adorable. (I'm still not sure how people who aren't drawn do the Snoopy dance.)

I would focus on the kiss. Seriously dude. A weird girl kissed her without her permission. She can scream about it and inwardly be grossed out that someone she barely knew touched her face.

Also it's kinda obvious that Aggie is acting like a five year old with a crush. Especially given that she's bullying Penny for piss poor reasons.

T and Gis once offered a colour version of the final panel as a donation wallpaper.

Except she didn't. Lisa touched her nose and she was all "I'VE BEEN KISSRAPED!" Not "Bitch, excuse you?", not "Hands off, weirdo", but "I'VE BEEN KISSRAPED!"

And the denial seeds are planted.

I usually don't advocate violence, but it would have been kinda nice to see Lisa get slapped/punched/shoved away - not enough to do serious injury, obviously, but enough to maybe make the point to Her Specialness that others' rights matter as much as her desires.

Because, seriously? Putting your bodily fluids on others without their consent (or any reason to think you'd have consent) is gross. Taking a step to out someone (or force them to out themselves to themselves, whatever she justified it as) in public is gross. Lisa is gross.

It's not like Lisa spit on her hand and wiped it on her face, her fingers could have been completely dry. And she didn't Out Sara at all, she made a pointed gesture and let the reaction speak for itself. Sara is the one who approached them, got up in Aggie's face and started yelling. If Sara wants people to stay out of her business she should practice it herself.

Lisa knew what was going to happen, though, and it's exactly what she hoped for. She's something of a shit-stirrer, and she usually justifies it by saying that it improves people's lives in the long-run, but in the real-world, that's generally not how life works.

So Lisa is some kind of plot device.
