Anatomy of a Tom Hater

From DariaWiki

Anatomy of a Tom Hater is an essay written by Kara Wild, with help from Alan Benard. The last of her formal essays, it is dated October 2003.


Anatomy of a Tom Hater was originally intended for the second issue of the short-lived The Padded Walls fan magazine. When the issue failed to come together, Wild released it on standard websites.


In contrast to her essay The Other Side of the Kiss, which focused on Daria's motivations and behavior, Anatomy focuses squarely on Tom, specifically what characteristics he possessed that made him so unacceptable to fans.


Wild makes a reference to CINCGREEN's essay, The Fall of Tommunism, written in December 2002.
