Hey there, reader. It’s Heather here, the creator of ThingsMyExSaid. Some of you have maybe noticed some serious cartoon silence on my end here over the past few months. It wasn’t you, it was me. And I’m still taking some time. But I wanted to reach out and let you guys know some of the cool developments that are going on behind the scenes here at TMXS.
First of all- it speaks so much about you guys and the content readers like you have provided for this website, that despite my complete and utter lack of posting or publicizing, we’re still getting several hundred visitors a month! And the quotes keep coming! If you’ve submitted a quote in the last several months, just know it didn’t go unnoticed and it’s safely incubating in our giant quote database, faring much better than all the houseplants I’ve neglected over the years.
The main reason the website has been so quiet is we’ve been planning our official launch celebration in New York City- more details to come on that later. Just expect some fun and wacky shenanigans coming up around the New Year.
In the meantime, because I am that needy, I have a request: What are these two men are conversing about in this 1950s romance comic? I invite you to post in the comments section below.
There are several elements to this submission that (for me, at least) make it one of our most confusing, ever.
Wait a minute… did he just accuse her of being a rapist? Is she a rapist? If the genders were reversed, would we perceive this scenario differently? Somehow, since she was the one who submitted this quote, I suspect she had no idea he wasn’t into their physical relationship. But seriously. What the hell is going on there? Why was he having sex with her? Guys, gals, folks in between: don’t have sex with people you don’t want to have sex with! Relationships are complicated enough.
Or what if she was, like, his dominatrix or something, and this was part of their role play….
Happy September! Got a stupid ex? Want to see his or her quote up here in anonymous infamy? Submit your quote to ThingsMyExSaid!
