coming attractions

Oh, why don't we call this cute and phony talk about "sex without consequences" what it is? It's the sour grapes of old Republican farts who would like to re-impose sexual slavery, and keep those female fleshapoids barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen.

It's old-time paternalism, and it sucks.

I've got only one thing to say to such backward, Neanderthalish, retrograde, 19th-century, primitives: curses, which I cannot repeat here.

Politics gets real scary, up close, and personal when it's about either food or sex. Politics is about control, and the arena where the battles of sexual politics are fought is the female body. Who controls whether she conceives? Who decides whether she will have an orgasm, or determines whether that's important? These are obviously both functions the woman, not the man should control. If she did, our population problems would soon be over, and people would spend a lot more time coming than going.

I think this is the best Tom Tomorrow toon since "We Tried to Warn You," right before Dubya launched "shockenawe" in 2003. It grabs hold of the essence of sexual politics, and exposes the people spouting those slick little euphemisms for the vicious control freaks they are.
