I’m starting this thread in celebration of my first day of work… in a comic shop!
Enjoy these (hopefully) funny stories, and please share any funny work stories you have :3

Dad: Is it suitable for a kid his age? (points at 5 year old)
My brain remembering what episode of Naruto i’ve just watched

What’s better than a nice trip to the comic shop with your kids? These nice parents who actually let their kids buy something (seriously the amount of a-hole parents who dragged their kids there buying stacks of manga for themselves and not even letting their kids get a miserly pack of pokemon cards) might think otherwise after this trip
Kid: Mommy daddy, can i get this one?
Holds up a manga that’s:
Has big volumptious anime tiddies on cover
And character wearing lengerie 5 sizes too small
That my dear Watson, is a Hentai
Mom: (rippes the manga out of kid’s hands in a panic) N-no darling, this one is not for kids

Vermont bans a high school from athletics for objecting to boys in girls’ sports
The rot of gender ideology continues to make its way through the sports world. Now, liberals are punishing high school athletes in the name of “gender affirmation.”
What have they done now?
Mid Vermont Christian, a high school in White River Junction, Vermont, is the latest target of leftist ire. The school’s girls’ basketball team forfeited a Division IV playoff game against Long Trail because Long Trail had a boy on its team. “We believe playing against an opponent with a biological male jeopardizes the fairness of the game and the safety of our players,” MVCS Head of School Vicky Fogg said.
Female sports for BIOLOGICAL FEMALES! That is how it should be!
As a result, the entire school is being punished. The Vermont Principals’ Association, the governing body for high school sports in the state, unanimously voted to ban Mid Vermont Christian from all “VPA-sanctioned activities and tournaments.”
That is wrong!
Yes, Mid Vermont Christian, if you want to protect the safety of your female athletes and ensure that they are playing in fair competitions, you have no place in Vermont high school athletics. When you signed up to play girls’ basketball, you signed up to play against boys. It’s just that simple.
That is exactly what these woke libtards want.
The VPA alleged that Mid Vermont Christian violated the organization’s policy on discrimination and harassment by refusing to force its girls to play basketball against a boy.
By discrimination against ALL Mid Vermont Christian players, coaches, students and parents.
This wasn’t done to uphold the sanctity of VPA’s policies. It was done as a warning to other schools that recognize how unfair it is to force its girls’ teams to play against boys. Bend the knee to gender ideology, or you too will be banned from all sports. The VPA, like other liberals pushing this, want silence and complicity, and they don’t care how many high schoolers they have to punish to achieve it.
That is now the NAZIS gained and took control of a nation.
Nothing else is allow, or you will be crucified for believing in religion and science!
The question of fairness is beyond dispute, as male athletes have distinct physical and athletic advantages compared to female athletes, even at the high school level. But even the question of safety has been disregarded by the VPA. Basketball is a physical sport, and protecting girls from a male athlete that has natural strength advantages should be a priority.
Submit, become silent, and bow down to our ideology!
A Minnesota court can’t overturn science – but it can destroy women’s sport
It would appear that allowing male bodied athletes to compete against females is now a human right.
…a transwoman, filed lawsuits in 2019 and 2021 accusing the organisation of discrimination for banning the powerlifter from competing. The court ruled that USA Powerlifting was “making a person pretend to be something different” and had violated the Minnesota Human Rights Act.
By this person “pretending” to be female, you mean.
And they violated this person’s delusional fantasy?
How is this fair? In the UK sport is specifically addressed by the Equality Act 2010 and the Gender Recognition Act 2004 because of the biological differences between the female and male sexes. Most competitive sports are sex segregated, in order to eliminate indirect discrimination which occurs if females are put at a particular disadvantage when compared with men in a mixed-sex setting.
As it should be.
Female sports for BIOLOGICAL FEMALES!
Fitness data from over 85,000 Australian children aged 9 to 17 showed that, compared with nine-year-old females, nine-year-old males were significantly faster in sprints, could jump further, could complete 33 per cent more push-ups and had a stronger grip. This shows that even before puberty there are male physical advantages.
That is SCIENCE! That is undisputed FACTS!
There is no such assumption based on ‘gender’, which is not innate or biological but rather socially constructed. Keeping sports single sex is based on hard evidence regarding biological sex.
Sadly, activist judges don’t care.
It is not a ‘gender based assumption’ to say that boys are bigger and stronger than girls, it is merely, in the vast majority of cases, a fact. Girls and women will self-exclude from such sports if men, whether they identify as female or not, which will lead to actual discrimination.
Or cases like that pervert L.Thomas who got off showing his male genitalia to the females in the change rooms, or how many rapists will make the claim of being trans/female so they can be locked up with biological females and sexually abuse them in an enclosed space.
In the meantime, USA Powerlifting in Minnesota has just two weeks to revise its single-sex policy, meaning that natal male athletes will soon be able to compete in the women’s category. This would lead to the end of women’s sports, and this decision must be challenged. Let’s maintain female only sports and allow those women and girls that wish to compete with males, trans or otherwise, to do just that. Let’s see how popular it is.
Sadly, the woke/leftoids WANT to destroy females, female sports, etc.
Have you seen the things they have done with Marvel and Star Wars and other franchises?
Midjourney is one of the most popular pieces of AI software that allows users to create beautiful AI-generated artwork by simply entering a text-based prompt that describes the image.
Never thought A.I. would take off so fast. Basically, people text in what they would like to see and the AI generates pictures and art around their ideas. Recently, there was a roundtable and Jed was talking about Phoenicians and that might be a good idea and put in like Phoenicians as and Epic 300 style movie or something like that. If you are a creative person, this AI artwork is just another tool for someone to use to produce their visions and dreams. Like ILM, any storyteller or director has used technology to give the public the movies and shows that we are all familiar with. It seems like a good way to generate concept art, even if you can draw well or are an artist yourself.
SteamPunk Star Wars
They have some for Marvel characters as Cowboys in the Wild west. There are also ones for Marvel Characters as Samurai. Marvel in the Victorian Era is another idea. A lot of these things have been done in comics, but it’s interesting to see what the AI comes up with.
What if countries had their own StormTroopers?
Appellate court rules in favor of separating school bathrooms based on sex
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit ruled that separating bathrooms based on sex doesn’t violate the Constitution or Title IX…
That sounds like common sense.
The case, Adams v. Sch. Bd. of St. Johns Cty, revolved around whether or not St. Johns County School Board in Florida violated a transgender student’s rights by prohibiting the student, a biological female who identifies as a boy, from using the boys’ bathroom at Allen D. Nease High School.
A biological female should use the female’s bathrooms/changerooms.
A biological male should use the male’s bathrooms/changerooms.
The court ruled en banc that the United States has a long tradition of segregating certain spaces, such as bathrooms, on the basis of sex, without falling afoul of either the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment or Title IX, which prohibits sex-based discrimination in education. As such, the student’s rights weren’t violated.
Finally! A ruling based on law, traditional common law, and the constitution.
And not only that, but…
In arguing that the school didn’t violate the rights of transgender students, the court documented the school’s many attempts to accommodate LGBT students.
You can accommodate them without making other students (the vast majority) to feel uncomfortable/unable to use the washrooms/changerooms because someone of the opposite biological sex is/might be in those “safe spaces”. Including gender “neutral” bathrooms.
We are hearing more and more stories how “unsafe” those spaces have become in recent years.
