TVC should be respected? That idea gets even more comical

by Jeremy Hooper

It's likely that the Traditional Values Coalition thinks they are helping their cause by issuing "comic strips" in which they oppose various bits of pro-gay legislation. But are they helping to kill these pro-gay bills, or are they just further shooting themselves in the foot by exposing how unhinged the "pro-family" movement can be? Well, have a look at their latest and judge for yourself:

Picture 3-58

How does one even respond? Do you say that yes, in fact, under ENDA, one could still freely tell the blonde above that she must tone down her wardrobe and makeup to fit the company dress code? Or do you question why "homosexual" and "pansexual" are grouped with the available gender options, as if one's sexual orientation or proclivity is the same thing as their gender identity? Do you ask who, exactly, would use the "not sure" bathroom and question why even in the fearmongery, offensive world of TVC's making would such an option be necessary? Or should you point out that in the transgender community, she-male is considered highly offensive (much along the lines of "faggot," which we hope TVC would not feel it okay to use)?

Yes, we could ask those questions and make those clarifications. But then again, why would we, when the only question of which this comic really seems deserved is: GOOD GOD, HOW AND WHY ARE PEOPLE STILL BUYING THE IDEA THAT THESE CHARACTERS ARE THE "MORALLY SUPERIOR," PRO-FAMILY CITIZENS AMONG US?!?!?!

Your thoughts

It's too bad they left out the drooling fundamentalist nutcases who speak in tongues every other few minutes and insist they must practice their "religion" during work hours.

Typical- The FTM always gets forgotten...

That's a very good point, Dawn. It would seem they are not nearly as freaked out by that concept. But then again, they probably just can't think of the right offensive words to fully scare their peeps.

Aaargh! My eyes! My eyes!

Why must they sully our world with such ugliness? Why can't they pick a decent font and stick with it? Oh!

And could they really not find more than one picture of a clownesque drag performer? This make me want to make a decent comic in reply...

It does give credance to the theory that talent in Photoshop and design is strictly a liberal trait.

That picture of the Drag queen "Mado Lamotte" had been taken by me, at her Cabaret Mado in 2006. No one have the right to use any picture on my websites unless I give him permission after knowing where and what the picture will be used for. My art is not made to be used like that.

Joe: Thanks so much the info. We're going to get you in touch with TVC and get this matter settled.
