I just recently discovered this comic. It’s so sad. Sad is an UNDERSTATEMENT for this comic. Like it breaks my heart that some people actually go through this. Plus this is in the what mid 90’s? Thats even worse. Rape was not a big deal back then and didn’t have really huge charges as it does today. Everyone tried to AVOID the talk of rape, and to have a Dad do this to his daughter without a thought. That’s just. Disgusting and horrible. This is a true monster. It’s not like she could go to the police or anything. They won’t believe her. You relaly did good on Clarissa’s comic bringing into attention the horrors of rape and the psychological and emotional strain it causes to the victims.
JY: Why do people keep interpreting my adorable Sataurday Morning Cartoon pitch this way??
So she hates herself and/or blames herself for the abuse. I wonder if it’s because she somewhat enjoys it. Since we’re balls deep in this category lets just talk about it. Rape victims, male and female, sometimes (most of the times) end up hating themselves or being ashamed of themselves for enjoying the rape on some level. Not to say they had the best sex of their lives or anything, but physical stimulation is pretty hard to mentally block out so these people still feel arousal, pleasure, and even orgasm. Those last ones REALLY hate themselves.
OR none of this is true for her particular case and she just blames herself because both her mother and father tell her it’s her fault, as shown in other comics.
OR it’s a little of both like in real life.
JY: I assure you that you are mistaken.
We tend to blame ourselves because our families, friends, and a large portion of society typically assume we were asking for it or enjoyed it. She blames herself because her mother, as she stated, tells her she’s a little tease (implying she brought it on herself). She’s a kid, ya schmuck.
Over 15 years later and this is still one of the most warped and disturbing comics ever made.
Clarissa and Weapon Brown really don’t get enough praise.
JY: I am in a constant rage over that, too!
