I like Amber and all, but I'm sorta with Gail... it's easy to just say get a job when you've never actually had financial hardship xD;

Xylas_Incarnum, August 27th, 2016, 9:44 pm

Not really a job that. That's more like freelance community service/volunteer work Amber, seeing as you're not getting paid any for it.

-outside the 4th wall.
still expecting a knife to be thrown here.

"One question, Amber . . . if you can answer it we'll go . . . how much was your electric bill last month? No? Too bad." =(^_^)=

"You've never worked a day in your life."

...Have YOU, Gail? I don't know if you used to hold jobs before you got powers, but "stealing from other people" is not exactly a job, either.

And far from me to diminish the great hardship suffered by the economically disadvantaged, but, y'know, the vast majority of those guys manage NOT to become criminals. So don't try to act from some kind of position of moral superiority you don't have, Gail.

that don't pay either

sun tzu: the comic starts off with her working fast food. "I've been a cashier, a stocker, a dog walker... Anything that doesn't require talent, a resume, or a degree."

On a more serious note, gotta love how easy it is for people with good looks who haven't had to find a job in the last decade or so to say, "Get a job!".

sun tzu, August 29th, 2016, 8:19 am

@Starrie: Thanks, I'd forgotten that.

sun tzu, August 29th, 2016, 11:57 pm

@Spartanc45: If it's someone telling it to a person struggling to make ends meet, then, yeah, it's an asshole thing privileged, clueless idiots say.

Telling it to a career criminal, on the other hand? Liiiittle different context.

Spartanc45, August 30th, 2016, 4:31 am

@sun tsu: Because nobody turns to crime because they gave up on finding honest work that pays the bills, right?

I get what you're trying to say, but considering Amber's never HAD to work, sounds more like a privileged, clueless idiot talking.

sun tzu, August 30th, 2016, 8:11 am

@Spartanc45: I'm sure a lot of petty crime is motivated by desperation rather than malice, but most of the poor, homeless and destitute manage not to turn to crime.

And Amber is talking to GAIL. Gail, whom she already knows is a kidnapper, attempted murderer, and all-around horrible human being.

Xylas_Incarnum, August 30th, 2016, 7:38 pm

@sun tzu... eh, last I checked most of those things happened to other denizens of the less than legal areas. or poeple worse than her in general.

Not to mention that as the main character here, Gail sorta... oh wait no, that's not an iron clad rule now that I think of it... anyways, she hasn't done any mass homicides of random people for petty things yet so I don't quite see what she's doing wrong with all that background context.
Not to mention that if people could actually get away with what Gail's been doing, they'd do it. something about lack of adequate consiquences and the concious is heard less often in urban areas. or was it less loudly? dunno never really had oneas far as I can remember.

(in response to "being a hero instead of a villan" counter argument"
bound to be brought up)

who the fuck would actually champion a society that doesn't support them, besides that doesn't really pay all that well. ever notice that practically ALL heroes either have jobs or are stinking rich or otherwise don't require cash?

sun tzu, September 1st, 2016, 9:18 am

@Xylas_Incarnum: ...She's robbing an innocent jewler RIGHT NOW. She attacked Amber's friend and family in their own home.

Xylas_Incarnum, September 1st, 2016, 11:14 am

@sun tzhu ... Well, that "innocent" jewler bit is rediculous, we don't really know that much about the store owner. That and I'm fairly certain there's some sorta theft insurance for them.
As for Amber's friends... so what? they're in the dame boat so why is that a problem?

Gail IS playing the villan after all. Those things are completely neglegible in that category of things.
