Very Classy.



Amanda at Pandagon points out a very sexist comic that was run in the Washington Post. I would say it amazes me that such obvious sexism could run in reputable newspapers in 2008, but I'd have to actually be amazed for that to be true.

Hillary Clinton is 60 years old. Wouldn't she be post-menopausal by now?

But then how could we make misogynistic jokes about her? Don't you know misogyny defies logic?

I contacted a couple of professional cartoonists through their websites and all were appalled.

i doubt the great David Low would have gone for such a thing - http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/Jlow.htm

So much for men = logic. Do you think by making such ridiculous points that these guys are feminists disguised as misogynists, dismantling masculine stereotypes one stupid cartoon at a time?
