Perhaps the local news of the remote gorilla village, but I have a slight feeling that it's not that local to me.

Previous month stuffings.

this wrote:Not sure it works. Yes, I agree with you that Doc is referring to them as equals but it really doesn't make it any less offensive. To put forward an absurd example, imagine an Aryan saying to a black, "It might be some of her aryanity still there." Even though the Aryan thinks it a compliment, it just rubs exactly the wrong way.

My point is that while it sounds pretty offensive, it isn't really his fault as he knows no other word to describe that, but the impression Judy's look gave is that she is like "Oh, for Gorilla Christ's sake, he had to say it, didn't he?", instead of a more understanding "Alright, it isn't really your fault, but next time use <gorilla word for humanity> instead of humanity, we aren't exactly humans.".

And yes, I realize "Gorilla Christ" could come across as a bit racist, but there aren't any gorillas living nearby, so I am fairly sure I won't get my ass beat for saying it.

If it were me after that conversation I would have asked Judy for a primer on proper notation for situations like that.

Also, is it just me or does that guy look shaved in the second to last panel? Like he just has some basic fuzz.

So doors are the line between "open shack" and "house that requires invitation"? Good to know. What if, though, you have a house with doors that are just always open?

In the Sluggyverse, an open door does not constitute an invitation.
