Sexism and economic disparity are pillars upon which our society is built. Real change would require tearing the entire thing down and rebuilding from the ground up.
A ‘this is how bad the problem is’ cartoon.

Well gee, if you don’t have the respect of someone who lacks the inspiration to come up with a name not taken from a podcast, what hope for legitimacy do you have?

He draws the offender as a gorilla and the woman as a humorless, castrating shrew. Does David Fitzsimmons just hate everyone?

Look, if you ride a bike or ride in a car you run the risk of an accident, and if you’re a woman you run the risk of being raped hacked. It’s on you to protect yourself.
Glenn McCoy, pull up a chair next to Tim Campbell. You have some shit to eat.

Where does this woman get off trying to exert control over her own sexuality in a manner other than letting her husband have his way with her at his leisure? She was just asking for this public humiliation.
Eat a bowl of shit, Tim Campbell. Eat aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the bowls of shit.

I’m not going to single out any particular cartoon here, I just want to half-say/half-reiterate I hate the laziness inherent in this industry. The current craze is a rash of ‘ISIL is bad’ cartoons that say nothing other than ‘ISIL is bad.’ Which we already know.

Could you say something more, please? Anything? ‘Bad thing is bad’ is not a contribution to the dialogue. You don’t deserve to be paid for that. Don’t waste my time with it.

The facts don’t weigh in officer Darren Wilson’s favor. A good cartoon.

There’s no reason to expect the justice system to try officer Wilson, so we need to look to other avenues of accountability.
A good cartoon.

a parody of a parody, by the magnificent rorus raz, inspired by the latest news in women and video games.

You can tell it’s not a real editorial cartoon, because if it was it would be the tired old ‘video games are making kids violent’ line, perhaps with a reference to Mortal Kombat.

I can still be surprised by Barack Obama’s tonedeafness, moreso given how long he’s been president now. As a junior senator you don’t need to worry too much about media scrutiny, but in year six of your presidency? You should know better than to say ‘We don’t have a strategy yet,’ because that last word doesn’t matter. People will only hear, only repeat the first five words.

Back in 2012 I commented that Obama fucked up when he repeated the ‘You didn’t build that’ line of Elizabeth Warren’s, pointing out he was handing Republicans a talking point for the entire election cycle. And someone commented, asking me ‘Is Obama supposed to carefully select every word he says to make sure Republicans can’t misquote him?’

And my response is YES! Yes, he should watch every fucking word he says because he’s the fucking president and everything he says will not only be reported on but will be pored over by the opposition looking for something to attack him on. Saying ‘We don’t have a strategy yet’ is giving the other side free material for at least a week.

How does Obama not understand this? Especially this late in the game? Is he still deluded enough to think Republicans are still operating on some sense of fair play and honor? ‘We don’t have a strategy yet’ is fucking amateur hour.

For all this self-delusion among Democrats that Obama is playing three-dimensional chess, he’s actually unqualified to play the game of American politics. The Tea Party is a worse opponent for Republicans.

In real life Republicans have responded by suing the president, but I’m honestly surprised McKee has come this close to reality, acknowledging that Obama needs to do things on his own because fuck no Republicans aren’t going to do anything. They’re on vacation right now, too.
