    Oh joy, Zeu's on his favorite soap-box yet again.

    Even flawed people can have something valid to say. For instance, Zeu. I'm sure Zeu has flaws, so should we dismiss everything he has to say?

    But since this topic is about a hypothetical future, do we really want to dwell on opinion-wars of yesterday's stories?

    True.

    But do you seriously want to learn about love, sexuality and peaceful coexistence between the sexes from someone who spent the last 3,000 years hating your guts with the flames of then thousand exploding suns and training day and night to bobbit you?

    Forgive me, Lovelikewinter, for contributing to the off-topic-tangent-ness.

    Ok, so, Zeu, let me get this straight - you think the Amazons are bad because they want to judge an entire group of people as bad and not allow for any good in that group, and thus, we should not listen to anything they have to say? But you judging the entire group of Amazons as bad, not allowing for any good in said group, and thus, why are we listening to anything YOU have to say?

    Dear Santa, please give me a Zeu that can actually discuss this without the big, distorted generalizations.

    More likely, they would be the ones doing most of the learning.
    Starting with lesson#1:
    "Not all men are evil moustache-twirling rapists."
    I think they already demonstrated that in Perez #14 as shown on their faces in the last panel below...



    My belief is the mistake with the first comment quoted is that love and intamacy is being confused with physical sex. The Amazons of this era had a culture based on respect, honesty, loyalty and tolerance. Sexuality does not mean just the physical act, but the self confidence, openness and acceptance that accompanies it. So while the Amazons might not have a great deal of experience in folding tab A and inserting in slot B, they are very well equipped to help people work together to understand the instructions in a way that is mutually satisfying.

    Typical. The man is only seen as a man by women when he's begging.

    Oh please, can we stop with the typical 'men are so picked on' routine? It's not only a very weak argument, we're getting very far away from even being close to on-topic.

    I think the amazons can be viewed as bi or pan. How the amazons treat men have no play in their sexuality because some didn't have any lovers.

    Sorry, no.
    they were well equipped to help WOMEN work together blah-blah-blah.

    MEN were another thing altogether and as the pannel you posted demonstrates, it ONLY took them 3,000 years to come to terms with the fact that men are not beasts.
    Yaaay.

    As much as I like to bash Azzarelo´s amazons for killing their mates, they are at least honest and do not hide their ill will toward 49% of humankind under the guise of "evolved civilization preaching how the sexes should cohexist" like the previous iteration did.
