Refu(SAL/SE/GE) - A Webcomic: Excerpt from Ep. 5

Scenes from Ep. 5

This is an excerpt from episode 5 of my webcomic Refu(SAL/SE/GE), where my mom explains the Hokkien term 'Pa Bor Cai' to me.

Reads as a fairly comical incident on the surface, but on deeper thought, and especially if you've heard stories of your mothers/aunts/elder female relatives discriminated in various ways on the basis of their gender, and if you yourself have felt the forms of the discrimination and judgement, however subtle, against women living in our continuing patriachy to this day, I hope this makes you angry.
