PUA

Everyone knows all the hot chicks hang out on mining planets.

Jesus fucking Jim Sterling, that's amazing. Yes I am drunk but still, good job.

Yeah, right... When I use surprise and air vents, it's all "Rape!" this and "Police!" that, but this dudebro gets to get away with it? Fuck that!

Excellent comic. It made me do a fairly loud Joe Swanson "HA!" in my workplace. Kuddos.

Well, they do say PUA's mostly come out at night... mostly.

Is it Friday already and nobody told me about it ?

Real classy. Rape jokes are always in a good taste.

...Is that Jamie Hyneman in the background?

You do realize that Cory and Grey consume comments like this for sustenance, right?

Look out! It's a scuttling, creepy vagina monster that rapes people's faces, forces them to incubate a child they don't want, and leaves them for dead once the spawn has reached maturity and is ready to hatch.

Art.. It's what you make of it that counts, right?

I'm surprised I never made this joke myself...

Ironically it's a female leading the seminar.

It's a queen. She'll breed. You'll die. Everyone in the company will die.

Fucking facehuggers, bro! Always stealing our women AND men! I say we shoot them all because they are a threat to humanity at large! /sarcasm

Other than that, I don't feel comfortable going through air vents... I mean, I don't think they're sanitary at all...

It's not a rape joke
It's a jab Professional pickup artist.
Mainly Julien Blanc

You know, if the face-hugger ever called the next morning...

they grow ever stronger... The salt extends life, the salt expands consciousness.... Soooon.

Ahem. Yes. Corey and Grey seem to have a knack for pushing people's buttons which I always enjoy watching. Their recent comics about GPUs and those yanks trying to oppress us limey counts are good examples.

Paradoxrifts:

I'm pretty sure the male body can just not be incubated if force is used against it.

Well done sir, well done.

I hope I too can someday be the guy who misses the joke and gets mad about it.

Caramel Frappe:
.. Not sure if male or female facehugger, since Xenomorphs are usually female >_>

Ganna just call it the most sexed-craving sexless creature on the planet mind you lol.

Lady rapists who identify as male, how progressive. xD

"And then I stick my thing down their throat and never let go..."
Yeah, it's a rape joke. But since it's actually making fun of dirt bags who would do date rape or at the very least throw a very wide net around their definition of what consent means (pick up artists, the comic is even titled that), I can't say I mind it too much. I mean, it's not making fun of rape or rape victims, after all. It's making fun of assholes.

Caramel Frappe:

Does that dichotomy even apply to them? The term "queen" is what humans gave to it to describe it. I haven't delved into the "lore" (i. e. comic books, pulp novels and whatnot), but I am a big fan of the movies. I don't think they ever gave any indication of different sexes in the species. The "queen" might simply be reproducing asexually, for all we know. Plus, the creature is all dicks, vaginas, mouths and spikes. It's intentionally androgynous.

Considering that the Aliens/Xenomorphs are based on termites more than anything else, yeah. Most of them are assumed to be female, with the Honor Guard and other Queen-specific attendants being male that are, again, assumed to fertilize the ovipositor. Though it's not required in the early stages of a Queen's life since she apparently has a few dozen embryo/placenta things in her to quickly build up a hive.

And I wouldn't say that, I mean, the whole design was originally just to make it as much of a biological killing machine(with emphasis on machine) as possible. It wasn't intentionally meant to be androgynous, just unimportant, like most insect's sex is if they aren't a Queen.

How appropriate it looks like a vagina, because anyone who believes that crap is a huge pussy.
Also, what does PUA stand for? Public ? Announcement?

Interesting observation: Facehuggers die after implanting their eggs. I'm not sure that this guy's qualified to be hosting this seminar given that he's a virigin.

Pick Up Artist, I saw these types of guys on tv like 4 to 5 years ago, I'm surprised they are still around, like I want to know who goes to their seminars and actually seeks out their shows?

Shouldn't that last panel be censored? I mean, I got enough face full of alien wing-wong just watching the movies (not to mention the first person games).

What ever canon you go by, I guess the species creators didn't intend for them to have noticeable gender traits, but the movie creators sure were going for the androgynous sexual assault monsters. I think one of the writers, Dan O'Banon, was even quoted to say, "I want to attack the audience, sexually." I don't think the characters in the movie ever make the connections, but we sure have.

The Almighty Aardvark:

Wasn't there a certain facehugger that could lay a queen embryo and one or two more in new hosts before dying? Maybe it's from a comic and I just read about it on a wiki? If I ever read the story that has it, I'm picturing it as a dude-bro.

Giger specifically designed the alien and it's various stages of life with lots of sexual imagery, both phallic and vaginal. It was based on Giger's previous work. I recommend reading this section of the Wiki article, it's quite interesting and summarizes this quite well:

"ME NO UNDERSTAND DISTINCTION BETWEEN JOKE THAT MAKE FUN OF RAPIST AND JOKE THAT ATTACK RAPE SURVIVOR. ME MAKE TRITE FACEBOOK COMMENT ON BROAD STEREOTYPE OF FEMINIST BASED ON COMPLETE INABILITY TO RECOGNIZE DIFFERENCE.

OOK."

Continue drawing them out, it's the only way we'll know who they are.

Hey hey hey. Before y'all start hating, that speaker is an equal opportunity playa!

...hard to see but he is pansexual. He can cross boundaries we can't so who are YOU to judge?!

Very well might be, I've really only seen two of the alien movies.

Stop ruining my joke with facts

The same creature creators also told Whedon "NO" in Resurrection when he wanted a big floppy cock and cooch(I'm open to anyone informing me of a more fun combination of words) on the Hybrid. The original movie and the stuff that inspired and it was based on? Sure, you have a bit of a case I'd say, but considering nearly every other piece of media concerning them has focused on them being machine killers and single-minded in their protection and expansion of the hive, I can't agree as a whole.

Actually, that's more like a Giger thing in general, like seriously, look at any bit of his stuff and it's pretty blatantly got a bunch of genitals in it that make up the whole.

To be fair that's what that alien things actually do. They surprise rape people in the face, if one gave a dating seminar that IS what they actually would talk about.

There exists like like a whole freaking community of these weirdos on reddit and a lot of other sites, to me they seem like a bunch of rapey guys that actively try to exploit emotional weaknesses.
They write whole fucking guides about it, fucking creeps!

It's a joke about pick up artists being comparable to rapists and being inhuman monsters, not about rape.

Ehhh, there's a dozen magazines devoted to telling women how to exploit a guy's "sexual weaknesses" too sold at Wal-Mart. I mean, I don't think PUA are all that great a thing, but the basic lessons they've got are pretty useful for pretty much anyone interested in dating that isn't naturally the wittiest or prettiest or that have their own social issues. And both essentially are about exploitation and sensing who a "weaker" target is.

About the only real difference I've seen is in the amount of coverage and language used in the media covering them and the lack of a reactionary "Spot a PUA" or even "Be Careful who you sleep with" conferences and lectures.

Edit: Also I think everyone is mistaking the "great rape joke" post as being written seriously.
