Two Cartoon Interpretations Of Fox News' "The War On Men" Article

There are several puzzling parts in Suzanne Venker's article "The war on men" from this weekend, not least this paragraph: "In a nutshell, the women are angry. They’re also defensive, though often unknowingly. That’s because they’ve been raised to think of men as the enemy. Armed with this new attitude, women pushed men off their pedestal (women had their own pedestal, but feminists convinced them otherwise) and climbed up to take what they were taught to believe was rightfully theirs." Here's a sentence-by-sentence reading of what it all might mean.








Or did Venker imagine it happening more like this?

I got a link to a Parade magazine feature about Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick's townhouse. Clearly some barely repressed gender-based rage over there…

@deepomega My wonky eyes and crooked bifocals read that as "That's How Penises Grow Up into Whores", which also works quite well.

Even if this were done in a spinning, the-cow-says-moo "See And Say," my head could hurt no worse from trying to make sense of her tortured logic.

Doesn't "gotta snag a man!" teach women that men are the enemy more than "everyone should be paid the same wage for the same work"?

But then how will men protect us (from earning too much money)?

@City_Dater I promise I will always be there to fritter away your surplus cash on booze and xbox, baby.

My biological imperative! My biological imperative is so manly & protective but I'm worried about my biological imperative.

The talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane just won't budge an inch will they? Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-fox-news-scylla-guardian-of-bullsht.html

Writer/stand-up comic Carol Leifer does the most amazing impression of Veronica (Lodge, from the Archies) walking away mad.

Apropos of almost nothing. But thinking of it made me less angry.

keep in mind that this is the niece of Phyllis Schafly, one of the most terrible and least relevant anti-feminist activists alive today. they co-wrote a book.

I, too, would be angry if I were trapped inside of a nutshell. So cramped and fibrous.

Sunny Schomaker (#4,021)

@Face I don't know. I could be bound up in a nutshell and consider myself the Queen of Infinite Space, were it not that I have bad dreams.

Bad dreams such as this article.

It's because sometimes we are enslaved with the thought that women can't do things that men can do. But really women are also capable.

These drawing on the war on men are hilarious and cautionary at the same time. If I were a feminist, I'd probably start by buying a starter gun from GGG AZ nothing fancy, I am thinking about a bolt-action 22LR rifle, which from what I gather is the most appropriate caliber and configuration for a beginner.
