Mailbag 16 was uploaded early in the morning of 10 December 2009, and answered in the early-morning hours of the 13th.
Perhaps the most notable letter in this mailbag is one that asks Chris a few seemingly innocent questions about feminism. Chris's response begins innocently enough, but he soon loses the plot and starts ranting about how men are huge jerks and how other people are to blame for making Rosechu look pathetic. Also interesting are Chris's ruminations on the friend zone, in which he promotes the idea that the friend zone is a challenge to overcome.
Other highlights include the suggestion of a series of Chris-chan workout videos, not waiting for the third date, and the return of Chris's abbreviation for "dumbass."
Like Tae-bo, only made of fail

Every day of my life I face challenges that require me to be both physically and mentally strong. I've seen some of your youtube videos that showcase your impressive strength and fighting ability and was wondering if you could share some of your knowledge with your fans!
What would you recommend for a good diet for the days that you are working out? What kinds of different exercises would you recommend someone do for both strength and stamina? What are some techniques to being a good fighter? And finally, would you consider releasing a CWC workout video in the near future? Any tips would be great! Thanks!
|Walking/Jogging is excellent Any Day of the Week, Yoga is a good practice, and eat Grilled Chicken, Vegetables and other healthy edibles at the reasonable diet rate. I don't think so on a Workout video.
In which Chris fails to realize how sexist he really is
|From: Layla Litte <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hey Chris! My name is Layla, and I'm a college student currently taking a Feminist Literature class. I want to write my final essay on "Women's Empowerment in Sonichu". I'd love to get some quotes/answers from you, the original creator. That would be awesome. Here are my questions:
Thanks so much!! "Zap to the extreme!"
Gratefully, Layla L.
|I am a full supporter for Women's Rights, so I think so. I can't really say for sure as I am not a mind-reader, but I feel that the right women not only enjoy, but is also important, are having the same rights as men; the vote, to be recognized, and even, possibly crazily, walk a mile in the man's shoes and clothing. LOL I understand that women like men who stay clean, are truthful and honest, look good and all-around kind and considerate with a dash of rough and tough. I feel that if ALL some women look for in a man is Power, Fame or Money are Totally Shallow, or otherwise Low on Self-Esteem. The private parts are a big difference. But from my P.O.V., most women are kind, considerate, sweet, emotionally sharing, outgoing, yet sometimes harsh and strict with good intentions. And again from my P.O.V., most men are obnoxious, selfish, violent, ignorant and mentally slow, and they are certainly do not share their emotions to make themselves appear Tough and not weak. The women characters in the comics have roles in which they live as they would normally, or assert themselves in opinions and/or strength when appropriate. There are times when it may be considered they were portrayed by the stereotypes talked about, but that was never the case; I put them in those situations at those times as I saw fit in the story. For example, in the 20th Episode, Rosechu attacked the villians valiently, yet I had to let her get captured so I could make the recreation and reference to the Fan Animation from (YouTube User) Timmys1984 fully and successfully.

Hello Chris. I am a huge fan of your Sonichu franchise. You do amazing work! Anyway, here is my question. Tonight I am going on my second date with my new girlfriend. I know from reading your comics that hanky panky doesn't happen until date number three, however I really need to get my dick on. Do you think I should try to get my girlfriend to give me some china on my second date or would that be a mistake. Thanks for your reply, and keep making those awesome comics!
|You may ask her if she wants to do that after the date, and if she is cool with it, then it is okay. But remain calm and cool when you bring it up.
In which Chris reveals exactly how little he's learned
I'm in love with my best friend, Alisha Bleuler. I met her when she started working at the same coffee shop I work at. She's so perfect and beautiful and she really understands me as a person! I simply adore her! I've tried almost everything to get her to notice me; like flirting with her, standing really close to her when we're together in public, buying gifts for her, singing romantic songs to her, and painting pictures of her. It's nothing creepy or perverted, just stuff with us holding hands, kissing, and this one where we're frolicking together in an Spring meadow. I've had some pretty frank talks with her about my feelings, but she just doesn't seem to love me the way I love her. It's been driving me completely insane because I know there's some grand romantic gesture I could pull off to win her over, but what?
I know you've had a similar situation with a girl. If you could go back, what would you have done (or done differently) to win over Megan Schroeder?
Help me, Chris-Chan, you're my only hope!
|She may have put you in the Friend Zone, alright. Most would say once you're in the Friend Zone, it is over on going beyond that, but I disagree. I recommend checking out the movie, "Just Friends" starring Ryan Reynolds and Amy Smart; NOT exactly, but you may learn from how Ryan's character got out of the Friend Zone and stepped it up. Or you can ask her friends or family on what they think may be the way to win her over. Good Luck.

Hi, I saw that you are taking fanmail, and so I would love to ask you some questions, being a fan of your work!
|I would recommend drawing your foreground items/characters before adding all that goes behind them, and remember the one-point perspectives rule. That answers the first two questions. Yes, regardless of gender it is still wrong.
|From: Gary Finch <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Hey-o CWC! Name's Gary, and I found out about your sonichu comics while me and my bros were chillin out at our house just drinking some brewhounds (what we call beers!!). My best friend Brody showed me your comics and I read all of them in a few days, they're just so good! Anyway, I was found out about how you like to drink like my friends and I. I was wondering how much you usually spend on alcohol in a week? I spend about $13 to get a 30 pack of Keystones every friday! Woo! What do you usally drink, and how often do you drink? Stay safe! Gary
|I am more of a Social Drinker; I generally do NOT spend a weekly amount on drinks; I only drink at like a party or with a friend on rare ocassions.
What's the big deal, district attorney?
|From: Mike Oxaflopin <email@example.com>
Why have the Sonichus not been arrested for public indecency? None of them wear pants. I would not want to go outside and see another dude's dong. I thought you were against homos, Chris.
|Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Porky Pig, even Sonic the Hedgehog Never Wore Pants in their shows/comics and such, and they NEVER got arrested, so What's The Big Deal, D.A.?
Chris the slut
|From: maynard Isveli <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Chris, Hello, my name is Maynard. I am a young gay man from St. Louis. I know that you are very much against homosexuals, however, the other day I came across your sex video of you and your blowup doll on SlutLoad. I immediately started jacking off. I was so turned on looking at your hot plump rump. You are such a slut.
With tons of gay man love
Another letter about how much Chris fails at life
|From: Black Anon <email@example.com>
hey chris my name is carly im a big fan of yours and the way you protrayed yourself in your comics i just knew you were a handsome and fit man oh boy was i wrong. I saw your videos on youtube and your fat as a whale and ugly as sin. Thats why no girl will talk to you cause you are an ugly overweight person. think about it no other woman (dont count family members) have never called you cute thats why you are still a 27 year oldd virigin cause if you looked good you would have been lost your virginty by now and have a sweetheart. Dont get mad though god made you fat ugly and retarded for a reason. Also how does it feel to be a failure compared to your brothers and sisters who have good careers?
But women can put it in their mouthes
|From: Ron Jeremy <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Before I say anything else, I'd like to make it clear that I am straight and only have straight sex with women. But sometimes, when I'm alone, I like to suck my own dick. I've tried to stop doing it, as I have millions of women that I can have sex with at any time I want because I have a massive penis and I am a very, very attractive man. I'm so attractive and my penis is so big, if I were a homo, I'd fuck myself, hard. Yet even with women at my disposal, I still feel the need to do it. I fear that I may turn into a homo and fuck myself in the ass with my fucking massive cock because I'm so fucking hot! You, being such a hero for heterosexuals, like myself, must know how to stop these ungodly and sinful urges! I tried using crack to help me stop, but it just made me suck other guys dicks, so I stopped doing that. Have you ever had urges to sucked your own dick? If so, how did you stop them?
|I did not have any such urges. But I suggest you reprogram your mind; Picture your dick being a Vacuum Cleaner Hose... That vacuum has been picking up dust, dirt, debris and other stuff that is usually found at a Garbage Dump. You would never put anything in your mouth that was among the germ-infested, possibly toxic trash and garbage from that dump, so Don't Do It.
On the nature of trolls
|From: Crystal Chondlar <email@example.com>
Saying you're sorry for the offensive things you're about to say doesn't make them acceptable, Chris. That is the mentality of a five year old, which is essentially what you are (on a good day). "I can do whatever I want as long as I say I'm sorry", no. You're technically twenty fucking seven years old, and you act like a child. A very, very young child.
Honestly, is it your mission in life to alienate yourself from every last person that still supports you? You had very few people on your side to begin with, and with each thing you do, that number continues to fade.
I wouldn't even call the larger group "trolls" anymore, Chris. Trolling implies things are being done at least partially just for amusement. I'm not sure that's the ase anymore. People legitimately hate you at this point, Chris. A lot of people. It isn't because you have Autism, and it certainly isn't because they're jealous. It's because as a human being, you fucking suck.
I doubt you read this, and I'm sure you don't have the balls to respond, but you need a fucking reality check. You need a reality LESSON, because you have absolutely no idea what reality is.
Let me get back to you on that
|From: Kevin Thompson <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Chris, I viewed your recent running video and a couple of thoughts sprang to mind.
According to a map, you ran 579 metres. This took you four minutes. You stopped five times. This means to run the full five miles (roughly 8 kilometres) you claim to run each day would take you 60 minutes and include 80 rest breaks. That is a very poor effort indeed.
Have you been lying to us, and if I were to propose and draw you out a five mile course would you run, and film, the entire event to prove to us your running ability?
Dr. Kevin Thompson
Chris continues to fail at Christianity
I think you're a great drawer and writer, but there are things that bug me still.
While it's true that gayness is condemned in the Bible, so are using condom and masturbating, which you all support. You can't be a good Christian if you accept those.
Also, I think there are way too many similarities with Sonichus and Sonic the Hedgehog. Doesn't that violate any copyright laws?
Also, I find it insulting that there are no members of minorities as important characters. You should fix this.
