If the situation in Nevada deteriorates much further, your re-enactment of the OK Corral may come sooner than you think Tifosi.

Yet another 'cutting edge' cartoon from the satirical master Clay Bennett?

Yea yea, I know - but somebody had to do it.

lkeithlu,

Aren’t men also made out as objects; and have been to a certain extent even more so than women - since antiquity? Until the fall of the Roman Empire, objectification (for lack of a better word) was an integral part of society - for both sexes.

While not purposely devaluing the strides women have made, I find the modern feminist/equality movements use of pseudo puritanical double standards a tad disingenuous. If you ever question its playbook, you’re a chauvinist. Isn’t this exactly what the Jews do if you question Israel’s occupied territories (anti Semite) or black people if you…um say…questioned AL Sharpton or Jesse Jacksons extortion rackets (racist)?!

It just seems to me women want equality – until they don’t.

Why is it ONLY ME that has to take out the trash? How can you possibly remember every detail of an argument that took place 10 years ago, but when the red OIL light on the dashboard comes on you haven’t a clue? Meanwhile,under the hood of my pickup, the engine sounds like a person eating a bag of Frito's with their mouth open.

Oh what’s the use? Now I feel guilty again and I know I’m gonna get more bullying.

Ikeithlu,

Interesting perspective. Glad you chimed in.

I don’t totally agree with ”boys were (are) threatened by women who were smart.” Acting ditzy along with boobs, bellies and butts is, like it or not, a sexual (shallow as it is) come-on. Men are attracted to that for one reason only and generally don’t remain very long with a girl he may consider a trolup. Finding a life mate however combines many factors, and men are more than likely to desire someone that more closely matches their educational/intellectual level. Movie star looks are generally secondary...except for my wife. :-D

You are right, ”culture demands overt sexuality, and women are the only ones that can resist that.” While true, what exactly does ”changing the culture” mean? Change to what?

As I said earlier, us boys have been badgered into a state of fear & guilt. ‘Changing a culture’ has a certain underlying hostility about it that instills; Oh no, not again.

I’m going to get a lot of flak over this.

I have grown weary of the unending carping (it’s all mens fault!) of the equality movement. It has (at least from my perspective) over the decades been very successful at bullying men into a state of fear & guilt --- mostly guilt I think.

Feminism- back when it mattered- opened up a lot of doors, for my mom, my wife and a lot of other women. And that’s a good thing. What we are failing to notice is that feminism- in its present form - and I’m talking about modern feminist equality that comes from the west, is nothing more than repeating the same ‘facts’ that have been around for over 60 years; have morphed into a victimization mindset and ring hollow in today’s western world. Women are equal, but those that keep bellowing that they’re not, are diverting the eyes of the public from women in less developed countries (the Middle East for ex.) where significant issues truly exist. Their voices are stifled because of imbecilic religious dogma that suppresses any attempt to address those issues.

Did it ever occur to American women that if grousing doesn't work out once, twice, 5 times... the problem may not be men? God forbid you try to earn the respect you crave- like we do- it just has to be given to you -- because you are a woman.

Now I feel guilty again and am ready to accept the bullying.

Could it not be that Bennett is surreptitiously indicating the two are essentially two sides of the same coin?

Consider:

Obama is not a democrat; he's a moderate Republican that has neglected and screwed the people that voted for him. The Democratic Party of my younger days exists no more. What we have today is the extreme Right, personified by the Republicans, and the moderate Right, embodied in what was formerly Democrats. They are now both sides of the same coin, and both work hard to enrich their corporate controllers at the expense of the American middle class.

As I said Plainny, "You don’t really know anything about the story. Do you? Aside from FOX & Friends squawking points."

Ikeithlu reeled you in. And quite nicely I might add.

Alprova gutted you.

You see, I paid attention.

Plainny,

Unable to Elucidate a cogent description/report about Brendan Eich? And then you expect Ikeithlu to do the research for you?

You don’t really know anything about the story. Do you? Aside from FOX & Friends squawking points.

So it’s back to the Hobby Lobby.

Who would have thought that we'd see the day corporate lawyers would argue that for-profit corporations can practice spirituality?

It is hard to know which idea is more absurd, that for-profit corporations are spiritual beings that practice religion, that corporations are entitled to Constitutional rights, or, in keeping with today’s subject, that money is protected political speech.

I’m going to have to side with Bill Maher and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse. Maher said. “This is like a legal ruling written by the little mermaid.” And Whitehouse said, (comparing the five justices who ruled on the side of McCutcheon to "the ultimate amateur ... who says, 'I know how to eat, so I can open a restaurant.”

Great offering today Clay.

Legalized open corruption, the NSA's big brother network, transference of strategic (most all) manufacturing to foreign nations, privatization of 'the commons', the SS (ish) machinations of the DHS/TSA, the rise of the warrior cops, the recent court dismissal challenging extrajudicial killings of Americans. All this and the transformation of much of the MSM into a govt. propaganda tool disseminating disinformation, while offering up shiny objects and distractions .

Anyone seeing a trend here? Happy hour indeed - Whoo hoo!

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it." ~Abraham Lincoln

The revolution WILL BE televised [except during American Idol or during Football Season] !
