So, homophobic imagery is alright as long as it goes against a wannabe theocrat?
The first thing that came to mind was this Onion article.
OK, so is the imagery homophobic? What do you think? Substance, remember, substance.
Maybe, maybe not. It could be homoerotic. Your hetero-normative bias is showing.
The issue, Roland, at least for me, isn't whether a cartoon with a stuffed bunny is a tool of gender oppression, but rather that there are people who spend entirely too much time looking at stuffed bunnies for things to be offended about.
Or rather that when a piece of minor but nevertheless real belittling of women's abilities takes place and this is pointed out, the shouting down of the pointing out totally drowns out everything else?
I think you're getting rather close here to saying that the people pointing it out are just doing it to annoy you. That position has unfortunate implications in my opinion.
