To do

I think it wouldn't hurt to elaborate on Chris's hatred of men in general, as opposed to just his hatred of homos. It's a common theme in his work and it could use elaboration. --Champthom 01:44, 9 June 2009 (CEST)

Just speculation, but it strikes me that Chris might have a crippling fear of confrontation. He threatens to beat up people... in Soul Calibur III. He takes his petty revenges out in poorly-drawn comics. He is paralyzed by the idea that girls have boyfriends, and thus a (to him, for good reason) insurmountable challenge to getting with that girl and hammering out his dream child. We can see this everywhere--he refuses to take the challenge of self-betterment, insisting it's the white knights who want to help him that are in the wrong, and he considers even minor crap like standing up and showering to be challenging. If he thinks he can get it, he goes the most low-impact, effortless route to get there (e.g. the attraction sign), and he writes off any failures or hurdles as sour grapes (all men are potential rivals in love, and so are JERKS!). Wanna bet he plays all video games (except Guitar Hero, if I recall a video of his) on Easy? Ensign disposable 04:45, 1 July 2009 (CEST)

The logic here is confusing me. If males are jerks, because they take away potential mates from Chris, wouldn't Homos get an exemption from jerk status simply because they pose zero threat to Chris's love quest? --Beat 23:15, 30 September 2009 (CEST)
They pose a threat to his ability to stay heterosexual, at least going by Christhought. Being gay would logically be a significant hamper in his quest to find that boyfriend-free girl of his. Ensign disposable 06:47, 5 October 2009 (CEST)
I think the concepts of "JERKS" and "noviophobia" are symptoms of his sexism. If he believed women to be his equals, then he'd direct just as much hatred at the girls who rejected him as he does their boyfriends. In his world though, women are objects, and other men are jerks because they aren't sharing. This morphed into a "phobia" of boyfriends only because he's a spineless coward.

A question

Hey, I'm kinda new here as an editor (I've lurked here long enough tho), so sorry if I misunderstood smth.

I want to do a section on how Chris is a misandrist (man-hater), how he wants all men to jump from a cliff and die... at least those who have a girlfriend who is "not black or married" (with appropriate quotes from his attraction signs, videos etc). Then I'd want to speculate on what does Chris mean by "having a married girlfriend", why doesn't he hate lesbians who have girlfriends, etc. Also, I want to point out the hypocrisy which becomes apparent when comparing these "anti-boyfriend" statements by Chris, and the events of Sonichu ep.13 where Mary Lee Walsh (the villain) is actually doing what Chris secretly wants: outlawing loving couples and separating those same "jerks" with their girlfriends.

So, my question is... should I add it here? Or to the "Noviophobia" article? Or to the "Infinitely-High Boyfriend Factor"? Or maybe it would be better to start a separate article about Chris's misandria? GokuGetEm 16:53, 18 November 2009 (CET)

Also, imho the JERK pictured on the Yu-Gi-Oh card looks a bit like the comic version of Wes Iseli. Should it be mentioned maybe? GokuGetEm 16:57, 18 November 2009 (CET)
