Rust: "The Bigger Issue"
Posted: Wednesday June 3rd, 2015 by

The first time I heard about Facepunch's decision to base skin color in Rust on your Steam ID, it was by way of an episode of Extra Credits. (I love those guys.) But, I didn't know how to feel about it. I didn't comment on it because I had no skin in the game; I've never played Rust. The ignorance and racism that surrounded a lot of the protestations annoyed me. I can't relate to those arguments. I can however understand people getting upset because they want a choice when it comes to defining themselves in a past time that's supposed to serve as an escape not as a debate subject.

Besides, who cares what color your skin is when your dingle is bouncing around?

Speaking of dingles...
I had to make a tough choice on this comic. You see the non-prude artist in me said the dingle is the point of the comic, you can't pixelate it. But the moderately responsible adult in me said, yeah but some people are going to be all offended; it's going to become a whole big todo. But, the VAST majority of you folks reading this comic are men. So, it's not even like it's something you don't already see every day. In the end I decided to pixelate it because the stream I was watching blurred them. **shrugs**

This is why I need to set up a patreon, so I can throw stuff like that up on to the subscriber feed.
