"How do you make a bigot not an asshole?"

Wow, just...wow.

Not necessarily fundy, just incredibly homophobic.

1/31/2010 1:23:35 PM

I'ma call this poe-like on the grounds that it's either extremely homophobic or a parody of homophobes depending on the attitude of the cartoonist. It's still a poor joke, but the interpretation changes quite a bit depending on that one variable.

That's just sick. How can any decent person look at this and really think this is acceptable?

1/31/2010 1:30:43 PM


Meh, it's just an old shock-joke. Like "I had a relative who died at Auschwitz/he fell out of a guard tower".

1/31/2010 1:31:53 PM


My word. It took me a moment to figure out what that actually meant; when I did... wow.

Because someone being violently attacked with a blunt implement and beaten so viciously they're left brain dead for no other reason than that someone doesn't like their sexuality is just hilarious, right?

Why can't anybody make a decent daily comic anymore? This is not funny. It's offensive enough to enrage somebody, but not offensive enough to be funny. The drawings are just atrocious.

1/31/2010 1:40:33 PM


This is really stupid. Really a no brainer joke.

1/31/2010 1:41:44 PM


To Nithing and 1107506 this can hardly be seen as a parody of homophobes or as a "shock joke" no matter how you look at it. So I definitely do not call Poe on this one. To even attempt to justify it is sick. However, you and the author of the cartoon are entitled to their opinions -- narrow and ignorant opinion -- but entitled none the less.

1/31/2010 1:42:22 PM

I read about the afterlife

I've heard about this. Let's encourage hate crimes everyone. that makes sense.

1/31/2010 1:42:58 PM


How is this a Poe? It's a "joke" advocating gay-bashing that appeared in a student-run newspaper at one of America's largest Catholic universities.

Noir the Sable

...well, I wouldn't say it's fundie.

Tasteless, yes. Fundie, no.

1/31/2010 1:51:06 PM

Yes because advocating bashing gay people into comas isn't fundie...

1/31/2010 1:52:06 PM


"What are the best uses of a virulently anti-gay christians?"

"I have no idea. What?"

"Garden lamps, impaled vulture bait, and dog food."

The thing about Poe's law is that parodies of extremism are indistinguishable from the real deal.

So debate all you want about the cartoon, but you will get nowhere until you know the author's intentions.

1/31/2010 2:12:03 PM


@ME : the "narrow and ignorant" opinion of thinking it's a joke/Poe ? You're probably right about the intent of the strip, but that doesn't mean you're justified in putting Nithing and #1107506 at the same level than the author of this... thing.

Also, tomatoes.

Well, I know what college I'm definitely not going to.

How far a homophobic cartoon can spread! Even to rural Pyrenean France. I suppose Europeans should not be surprised. We value the concept of 'liberal' as a virtue associated with generosity of politics and thought. It is a dirty term in America. So perhaps we should not be surprised that such a cartoon should emerge in young, Catholic America. Matthew Sheppard would probably agree with us on this. It would be interesting to know what steps, if any, the Notre Dame authorities have taken to chasten those responsible. A mild ticking off is hardly enough. That would show that they do not take the matter seriously. They probably don't, anyway. But Matthew Sheppard surely would. So do I, and the others in my small village to whom have shown the cartoon. Frankly we are shocked that this should emerge from a seat of learning. It it reflects on the university, and makes those students look like immature, knuckle-dragging, trogloditic thugs - even a la Hitler Youth. (Are you taking this in Benny - you and Georg? That is the image this idiocy conveys in liberal societies where homosexuality is no longer a burning issue of societal hatred.
