this is unfortunately true a lot of the time
i suppose you could make the point that we’re all assholes by someone’s definition
but we’re also mostly taxpayers by someone’s definition and so usually when someone describes themselves as a taxpayer, they’re trying to make a connection with you; they’re trying to build rapport with you, they’re trying to get you on their side or they’re trying to show that they’re on your side
trouble is, saying “i’m a taxpayer” gets people on the defensive.  ”taxpayer” is keyed through connotation and association to finance, money, payments, government, and redistribution of income—all of which can be thought of positively or negatively depending on who you are and what you believe.  it can also be keyed to privilege. so when you describe yourself as a “taxpayer” as a lead-in to some argument or other, it’s pretty much guaranteed that some of the people in your audience are going to resent you trying to relate to them on the grounds that you are both taxpayers when they believe one thing and you believe the opposite.  and so you will be labeled an asshole.
you will also be labeled an asshole because you will almost invariably be alienating the people who do not—for whatever reason—pay taxes, and implying they don’t get to have any opinions or any say in the issue because they aren’t contributing members of society
this is a stigma associated with people who pay no taxes, by the way, did you know that?  yeah, there are people who believe if you don’t pay taxes you have nothing to contribute to society at all
gee
what a bunch of assholes
what’s really funny is that someone in my tax class said something along these lines today; i don’t think that’s how he meant it but it’s what he said, and then five minutes later he freely admitted that he does not pay taxes yet
so what we get when we boil this down and let it simmer for a while is a cauldron of resentment in which taxpayers are assholes and non-taxpayers are drains on society and there’s no middle ground
and people ask me why i get so upset about finance
it’s not the finance that upsets me, it’s the people 
it’s the politicians and the media who foster and feed and nurture this great misunderstanding until even the students who are studying taxation start to believe it
seriously
what the fuck


Further, people who aren’t even citizens or employees effectively end up paying taxes on all the taxed products. So … if you aren’t a taxpayer … what exactly are you eating?

    **please do not remove artist’s comments or repost this comic!!!**

    okay so i finally finished this comic for my design class! i might eventually print it in small booklets or make multiple episodes/issues if enough interest is expressed. if you reblog this and you would be interested in purchasing/reading issues of this or comics like this, please say so so that i can gauge whether or not this is something i should pursue! <3

    the final image is what the back cover will look like if i print it!

    EDIT: the phrase “sorry my friendship is a crappy consolation prize” is adapted from a post by tumblr user pampampam!

    EDIT 2: i added the page in between 2 and 3 to make the friendzoner’s reaction make more sense and to better communicate the point i was trying to make with this comic!
