I totally need a signature. Or a user page.

Well, that was easy.

[edit] Marzismurf

I say there, not bad for a "neophyte"! Although I'm beginning to wonder why that fact is there in the first place... —AbdiViklas 16:55, 6 December 2005 (UTC)

  • Well, there aren't that many ficticious universes out there there are nigh-devoid of women, with no explanation given. The Smurfs is the most cemented case of one woman, many men in the minds of many twenty-somethings. It's become almost cliché to make lewd jokes about Smurfette's promiscuousness, despite how easy it is to debunk that notion. But it's still on the top of many people's minds that Smurfette was the only female Smurf, so the comparisons will likely follow.
    Bottom line, we're dealing with a fictious setting and no explanation to why there's only one woman. Logically, it might be that Missy doesn't want to voice another character, or that TBC don't want to get another voice actor. Or maybe it's just funnier that way. But we can't mix real-world logic with an imaginary setting, so we rationalize it however we can; if we can't do it in the context of the Homestar universe, we'll find parallels with other works of fiction.
    Personally, I wouldn't care at all if the Smurfette tidbit was deleted, as it's a shaky correlation. If enough people see the link, it's probably worth noting. I just don't want to besmirch a Smurf, so I'll just try to keep the facts in the Fun Facts Wiggy 19:25, 6 December 2005 (UTC)
