Idiots rule

Some politicians in Virginia and Texas (and Iowa and Alabama and Pennsylvania and Arizona, the list keeps growing, I'm afraid) are playing politics with women's bodily autonomy. Some have even gone so far as to attempt to mandate state-sanctioned rape for women who choose to terminate pregnancy by requiring women to undergo a TVP that cannot be refused. If you've never had a TVP, let me assure you: It is invasive

And Republicans (not all of whom are men!!) want doctors to do this to women. Against their will. For seeking abortion. The GOP wants to force women to have an invasive medical procedure (tantamount to rape by object) before women can obtain a separate, legal medical procedure. As the Washington Post Editorial Board so eloquently put it, "This from the folks who say the government can’t make you buy health insurance.

This is war on women, people. Anyone who tells you any different is in on it.

Object lesson

Ill Communication

Occasionally, Scott & I collaborate on cartoons. This one is a mostly-true account of an incident that happened at a local tire vendor this weekend. I like to think of it as art imitating life.

Fun with the Sex Pistols!

God save the Queen!

There are, no doubt, a lot of you out there who wonder: What would the Sex Pistols look like if they were actually cartoon characters? To which I say: like this. They would look exactly like this.

The careful observer will notice that I have only drawn two of the Sex Pistols: Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious. There were other members of the Sex Pistols, but they didn't make my cut.

Queen Elizabeth II was not actually a band member, but she featured heavily in the song that inspired this drawing.
