Jeepers, Snive’s like a dog that’s been beaten so many times it cringes whenever someone looks at it askance. Okay, little green dude, let’s assume you’re right about sapient creatures and their instincts. What does it really say about an individual who eagerly accepts outsiders? That he’s just planning a more devious way to exploit or kill you? Or that some have a cooperation instinct that extends beyond the in-group, which is actually a much better way to run a society?
Seriously, I’d smack him upside the head for his insinuations, but I’d just confirm his worst fears.
I think what Snive is insinuating is that this particular human doesn’t have much of a survival instinct, and may therefore be operating at a disadvantage, genome-preservation-wise. He’s too willing to trust people that he has no reason to trust. Given what we’ve seen of him, this seems to be an accurate assessment of the character.
I still say its a sex thing
Everything is a sex thing.
Snive is the ultimate Devil’s Advocate!
Divorced from any metaphor about real life, consider this: human beings are hard-wired to find certain things repulsive and/or unsavory to protect us from harm. As a species, we tend to find reptiles and amphibians unpleasant because a lot of them can be dangerous. Therefore, when suddenly faced with the prospect of rubbing elbows with them in the workplace, I think it’s highly understandable that some of the more sensitive or less progressive among us might have a pretty big problem with that on a very base level.
And everybody’s seen at least one version of “V,” right?
Sure, I understand WHY someone would find the Reptoids repulsive and instinctively loathe them. But this isnt the stone age anymore, and you cant let your reptile brain control your behavior. No one said you have to be best friends with everyone around you, but you do kinda have to tolerate them existing.
I respect the hell out of this comic and whatever monstrous lizard beast is writing it for being this reasonable about emotion.
Wow this comic has gotten more serious than I expected. Soo glad I noticed it existed, thanks for doing that guest comic over at sfam.
