Christians are worshiping in a church when a transwoman walks in and does a mass shooting. The next day Joe Biden gives her the Medal of Freedom.
@Skybison well, both are pretty terrible, so... counts?
The first one is just... stupid. I can't think of any stories of trans people saying they were justified in violence just based on color/gender, but do know a number of stories about guys thinking they were justified with (at least) assault because the person they thought was a girl was either a convincing gay guy in drag or trans person who was pre-op.
The second also terrible. Especially since that pretty nuch just happened with that Tennessee shooting at the religious school. No posthumous rewards, just rightful sadness for the victims and trying to make that sort of thing more difficult to happen in the future.
The two strips before that make it clear that it *is* an A Clockwork Orange reference. They’re also a reference to the idea of “Trans Day of Vengeance” which is currently going around some Right-Wing circles; basically that there will soon be a violent uprising of young trans people against Christians. Or straight white men. Or gendercrits. Whichever one of those groups they most identify with.
As for where they got the idea? Biden’s Press Secretary made a speech for Trans Day of Visibility, and they “figured out” that the speech included a “coded message” for young trans people to prepare to attack, wait for the signal, and the Biden administration will have their backs when it happens. Which I’m like 110% sure isn’t going to happen, unfortunately even if it’s just paranoia on their part it’s still stochastic terrorism.
"Sabrina Online" used to be published in an Amiga magazine: nowadays, reprinted by a manga/anime importation business here in Britain: United Publications. Garry Trudeau's "Doonesbury" still widely syndicated. Gee.
I wonder why
the same can't be said for yours, OP...?! [/"Dilbert"]
Once again, he is creating some utterly detached and impossibly stupid “point”, which he has to force through in his comic, because reality does not give him a single smidge of it to him.
Wonder if he understands that it doesn’t matter how many comics he puts out on how we transfolks are some evil, dominating cabal when in reality it is exactly the opposite, he will just look more and more insane.
“Christians are worshiping in a church when a transwoman walks in and does a mass shooting.”
A couple THOUSAND recent mass shootings, three of them by trans.
And the problem is the trans.
So the target demographic is the stupid AND the mathilliterate.
he will just look more and more insane
Like any True Believer.
I do wonder what made him go 'round the bend, but not enough to look into it.
So were we! You can find all of this, and more, on Fundies Say the Darndest Things!
