if you ever liked the oatmeal, please UNLIKE him (on facebook) and discontinue your support.
sex workers are PEOPLE. sex workers are not objects. sex workers are not jokes. and THIS COMIC IS NOT SATIRE. it’s a poorly done, tasteless piece of work.
on his contact page he has removed his public email and lists a variety of reasons to NOT email him, including:
Do not expect diplomacy. The Oatmeal is a one man operation, and this gives me the right to say horrible things to you if it pleases me. You may even have a valid point or fantastic insight, but this won’t stop me from calling you horrible names and claiming to have spent an evening or two with your mother.
Do not email me because you are offended by: my hooker comic, eating horses, abortion, how Twilight works, or my usage of the word retard.
Do remember that this site is for fun, and to not take it too seriously. If you don’t understand satire don’t email me.
the only ways to contact him are through his email for shipping orders: firstname.lastname@example.org and through his facebook page.
