Trans Fear by humon Trans Fear by humon
You can read the next comic here [link]

England later kicked all of their asses, but that's besides the joke.

Scotland, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark share a lot of history, which is why they share a lot of words in their languages, and a lot of the old myths are the same as well.

They also all did some things that the English considered rather feminine. Of course there's the kilt (which is even an old Scandinavian word) which the English confused with a skirt, and the vikings were obsessed with combing and braiding their hair, not to mention being clean. They washed their faces every day and their entire body once a week. Doesn't seem like much to us today, but to the English it was weird (Not that the vikings washed that often, but that they did it at all).

I think using national flags to personify a country is kind of cliché.

I'd say the United States is at least as strict on gender roles as England is, but still, funny.

Back then people in England could go cradle to grave without washing even once. And should they wash, they'd only do it wearing their clothing. Why, I don't know.

Old Scandanavians were very clean? that's something you never hear about, fascinating. I knew that hundreds of years ago ppl did't bathe that often so it would considered off.

Man, the English can't get it right!  It's only a skirt if you wear underwear!

No, its still a skirt, and it makes it even worse if you don't wear undies.

That's just worse for you, because if a Scotsman doesn't give any fucks about WEARING the Kilt, they're not going to give any fucks about if they wind up FLASHING anyone.  Unless one of their buddies lifts their kilt in front of someone, but that's more because of the fact that their friends are stupid like that.

Showing their barbarity. Do you think any well- respecting modern person would show their genitalia in public? I know I wouldn't!

I'm a well respecting modern person, and I think that as long as it's not erect, it's not barbaric (or awkward).  'Cause really, it's just a part of the human body, who should really give a shit?

The police, who would most certainly arrest the person in question, the parents of poor, traumatised little girls and boys and those who would not want to poke into others' privacy. Imagine if everyone did it. There would be chaos.

Now tell me something.  WHY should nudity be so traumatizing?  Why should it be shunned?  It doesn't make sense.  After all, we all have the same body parts.  In fact, why don't we start small and ask why it's illegal for a woman to not wear a shirt in public, but it's perfectly fine for a man?

Men do not have sexual body parts on their chests. Women do. If men did, it would be illegal.

Yeah... Vikings raiders starting hitting England in around 790 A.D. and by 800 A.D., the "Danelaw" began, which were parts of England which were under Danish (aka. Viking) ruling. Here's a map, which shows the who ruled what near the start [link], though that would have changed over time...

Worth noting though. Even if they did wash their faces every day, everyone did it in the same bucket of water.

Everything vikings do, by definition, is masculine. I don't care if they raid a village in pumps, it will be the MANLIEST pump-raiding in the history of MANkind.

Also, the american isn't fat enough. :P
