Misogyny

A Manly Cartoon


cjones01222019

Gillette, a company that makes razors and other grooming products released an ad stating they “believe in the best in men.” Right-wing men, who love to project by calling liberals “snowflakes,” have responded by having hissy fits and showing the worst in men.

The two-minute commercial talks about “toxic masculinity” and recognizes its own past in contributing to that atmosphere. It makes a strong case against sexism, harassment, mansplaining, and bullying. Conservatives are quite upset over this because I’m not sure. They’re either in favor of being chauvinistic jerks and pushing people around or their manhood is threatened by such an ad. These are the same people who freaked out last week over a video of a brown congresswoman dancing while she was in college. I have already seen three conservative cartoons outraged over the ad. Yes, they all suck.

Right-wing conservative men are freaking out so much that they’re starting a boycott against Gillette. The ad shows men helplessly repeating the familiar phrase, “Boys will be boys.” A few high-profile dudes, just being boys striving for relevancy, have made their voices heard against the ad.

Actor James Woods, game show host Chuck Woolery, and a male supremacy group, A Voice for Men (which is a certified hate group) have all vowed to boycott Gillette razors. I guess Chuck Woolery will be getting woolier. Piers Morgan (you laughed already, didn’t you?) said Gillette “wants every man to take one of their razors and cut off his testicles.” Not quite.

In case they missed it, the ad is not telling men to vanish, go away, or to “cut off their testicles,” even if Piers could find his. The ad is telling men they’re part of the solution. The new Gillette commercial encourages men to break the cycle of treating women like property, sexual harassment, abuse, the use of violence to solve conflict, bullying, and mansplaining. It’s encouraging men to break the cycle and that is “the best a man can get.” Don’t pass this down to your sons. Don’t pass these expectations down to your daughters.

The ad shows actor Terry Crews testifying before Congress and saying, “Men need to hold other men accountable.” We especially need to hold those accountable who can’t account for themselves.

We believe in the best in men, despite there being those showing their worst and ironically proving the need for such an ad.

If you can’t be an example of the best in men, I hope at the very least, your sons are better than you.

He-Man Women Hater


cjones10072018

It’s not a mystery why Donald Trump hates women. It’s because he’s afraid of them. He’s especially intimidated if they’re stronger and smarter than he is which describes every liberal woman. The only mystery with Trump and women is why so many still support him, and why they ever did in the first place.

Trump likes to float the lie that he won the women vote. He only won the white women vote, which may mean he believes only white women matter.

It’s not surprising when Trump insults women. He also insults the handicapped, brown people, black people, gay people, veterans, journalists, dogs, etc. He’s just an all-around hateful, vile, disgusting pig of a human being. But, he really relishes insulting women. He does it to the point that at times he may not even be aware he’s doing it.

Women who know Trump don’t want anything to do with him. According to reports, Karen Pence, the Second Lady, and Mike Pence’s wife and mother, refused to shake his hand on election night, and wouldn’t even let Mike kiss her (nobody should be kissing someone they call “Mother” anyway). His daughter, Ivanka, jokes about his botched hair transplant, and his own wife insists on sleeping in a separate bedroom, preferably in another state if she can work it out. At this moment, she’s in another bedroom on a different continent.

Trump has insulted Ruth Bader Ginsburg (only weights 60 pounds), Sonya Sotomayor (ha-ha diabetes), Hillary Clinton (crooked), Carly Fiorina (ugly face), Elizabeth Warren (Pocahontas), Heidi Cruz (ugly face again), Mika Brzezinski (ugly bleeding face), Rosie O’Donnell (fat, ugly face), Megyn Kelly (blood coming out of her “wherever”), Katy Tur (third-rate journalist), Maureen Dowd (wacky columnist), Katarina Witt (built like a linebacker), Angelina Jolie (not beautiful), Cher (wears a rug and had plastic surgeries), Arianna Huffington (understands why her husband left her for a man), Heidi Klum (sadly no longer a 10), and Alicia Machado (Miss Piggy).

On Monday, during a press conference for replacing NAFTA with NotNAFTA, Trump continued to insult women. As ABC’s Cecilia Vega was about to ask Trump a question about Kavanaugh, Trump said, “You’re not thinking. You never do.”

At a rally in Mississippi on Tuesday night, Trump lit into Christine Blasey Ford, who he previously said was credible. He mocked Blasey Ford and even lied about what she couldn’t remember from when she claims Trump’s SCOTUS nominee attacked her. Trump has previously questioned why women who accuse men of assault wait so long to report it. Maybe, because the most powerful man in the world will take to a stage before a bunch of Mississippi hillbillies and start mocking them. The worst part, the Trump rally crowd was laughing and eating it up.

Earlier in the day, Trump said, it is a “very scary time for young men in America when you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of.” No. He wasn’t talking about the dangers young black men face from police brutality. He was talking about men facing the risks of being falsely accused by women. Of course, Trump has never expressed concern for women who are sexually assaulted. That’s because Trump is a sexual assaulter. He is the man who boasted that he’s “grabbed them by the pussy,” and moved on a married woman “like a bitch” while his wife was at home with his newborn son.

You would think the Republicans weren’t concerned about the women vote this November. This year, a record number of women are running for office, with 185 party nominees for House seats. Yet, The Republicans are trying to ram through a SCOTUS nominee who has been credibly accused of assault on women, and they send a president out to rallies to mock survivors of sexual assault. There are two more Trump rallies this week.

Hopefully, the “Blue Wave” moves on Trump “like a bitch” and makes this a very scary time in America for Republicans.

Accusers Get Verified


cjones10172016

Donald Trump brought his locker room talk to his rallies this week.

First he called his accusers “horrible,” “sick” and “phony,” and then he insinuated they’re not attractive enough for him to violate. What a moral and upstanding defense.

Regarding Jessica Leeds, who has accused Trump of groping her on a flight, he said “Yeah, I’m gonna go after — believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you.” Good to know he has a violation-worthy  grading scale.

Trump also called another accuser, former People Magazine reporter Natasha Stoynoff, a “liar” and added, “Check out her Facebook, you’ll understand.” The crowd really liked that one and they laughed and laughed. She’s not pretty enough for…haha. Get it?

Since he was on a roll insulting women for their physical appearance he couldn’t leave out Hillary Clinton. Speaking of last Sunday’s debate, he said “and when she walked in front of me, believe me, I wasn’t impressed.”

I totally understand women like Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama aren’t Trump’s type. They’re Yale and Harvard educated. He’s not in their league. But since we’re out there insulting women’s looks let’s fully punch that ticket on the crazy train and create a conspiracy theory. Choo! Choo!

Trump has decided that all these accusations are being masterminded by a Mexican billionaire who pulled out of a deal with Trump after the GOP nominee said “Mexico sends us rapists and murderers.”

Carlos Slim is one of the richest men in the world. He is so rich that Trump’s income is as comparable to his as mine is to Trump’s. You do not want the income of an unemployed cartoonist (Seriously, somebody bring me a sandwich).

They say that Mr. Slim is so rich and owns so many companies that you can’t go a day in Mexico without contributing to his wealth. Trump, who may not even be a billionaire, has to hate that. It’s probably why he has to put his name on everything. Though a “Slim” casino may not be very enticing.

Slim is a contributor to the Clinton Foundation (Sniff. Sniff. Conspiracy). One of the properties Mr. Slim has a stake in is The New York Times (why am I not in on this conspiracy and getting some of that Mexican billionaire money?). He is the largest private shareholder with 17%. Being a shareholder doesn’t mean you write the headlines but Trump swears there’s a conspiracy anyway. Never mind the fact that other accusers have been revealed by The Washington Post, People Magazine, The Palm Beach Post, and a few TV stations, that Slim Richy does not have any financial stake in (I had to play off “Slim Shady” somewhere in this post).

Trump really hates the idea that a Mexican (of Lebanese descent which probably makes it worse) is meddling in a U.S. election. Dammit, that’s for the Russians to do. He also blamed the “global business elite” and bankers. You know, Jews. Wink. Wink. Nudgy. Nudgy. If there was truly a global financial conspiracy against someone, wouldn’t Trump have gotten the invite? The guy hasn’t been living in cardboard boxes.

Getting back to the whole accused-for-sexual-harassment thing, Trump said anybody can be accused. Just like that time he told his supporters that if they punched a protester at one of his rallies that he’d pay for it, Trump said “even Obama can be accused by anybody.” Then he repeated “anybody.” Yes, anyone at all. Just about any ole little body. Just one person…who might need a tiny little push. A push by tiny little Cheeto fingers.

The problem with finding somebody to accuse the president is that he’s not a jerk like Trump. Not to mention if there was an angry female out who was groped by Obama then wouldn’t they have found her while they were hunting for that pesky birth certificate?

But Trump is big on degrading women. He wails about the injustice received by Bill Clinton’s accusers, then he trops them out for a sideshow photo-op. He’s gone on Howard Stern in the past and graded them with numbers while saying a “flat-chested woman can never be a ten.” That’s another thing guys stop doing after college. The score thing, yeah we don’t do that. Trump still does. We also don’t check out ten-year-old girls on escalators and say I’m gonna be dating her in a few years.” Yeah. Trump does that too.

Trump is so stupid he doesn’t understand how his latest defense doesn’t work. If someone’s not attractive enough for him to harass does that mean he does harass them when they do meet his neanderthal standards?

I’m gonna go with “Yep!”.

I had fun with this cartoon as all the terms here made me giggle. They’re really stupid. Stupid can be funny, like Donald Trump. “Eye Broccoli” was new to me as I had never heard that one before (I research stuff). And obviously I took “man hands” from Seinfeld. I do feel a little self-conscience since I’ve done so many Trump cartoons this week. I wanted to compare with a few other cartoonists so I counted how many Trump cartoons in a row three of my colleagues, who are also my favorites, had drawn. One of them had done four. Another had done five. And one of them has, at this point, done fourteen.

Fourteen. So leave me alone about drawing too many Trump cartoons.

Pocahontas


cjones05282016

There’s a Trump Patch. What it does it prevent withdrawals for cartoonists when they go more than one day without drawing a Donald Trump cartoon. The side affects are it makes the cartoonists draw cartoons about slow TSA lines, and Goofy as the Veterans Administration.

Believe it or not, my last six cartoons did not have anything to do with Donald Trump. Amazing right? I could only quit for so long and the Orange One gave me plenty of topics to choose from.

He has just acquired the 1,237 delegates required to secure the GOP nomination. He’s back to warring with women, from New Mexico’s Republican governor Susana Martinez, to Hillary Clinton, to Elizabeth Warren. He said he’s willing to debate Bernie Sanders if it will provide $10 million to charity, never mind whatever happened to the donation last time he claimed he raised money for charity (this could be a clue why he’s audited every year). He’s been dredging up conspiracy theories from the 1990’s, such as the Clinton’s being behind the death of Vince Foster (and then saying he doesn’t believe it should be in the campaign discussion after he’s the one who brought it up). There was even another riot at a Trump rally. Trump even expressed his hope that a statue of his likeness is erected in D.C. Why even wait for the election?

My favorite though is Trump referring to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.”

Trump has been in a Twitter spat with Warren, and she’s been trolling him royally and taking him to school. Trump has called her “goofy” and a failure as a senator and has been repeating the nickname and slur “Pocahontas.” He thinks it’s clever. I’m still waiting for him to pivot to presidential.

Trump held a little press conference in North Dakota to celebrate acquiring the magic number of delegates, and once again he spoke of Warren as “Pocahontas.” North Dakota is a state rich with Native Americans. Trump probably didn’t know that. A reporter, of indigenous descent, informed him that it was offensive. For a split second Trump seemed kinda humble and replied “oh it is?” and then he repeated the slur. Nice double down.

Referring to Warren as “Pocahontas” is just as offensive and racist as it would be if Trump had referred to New Mexico’s governor as “Speedy Gonzalez.” We should probably be thankful that while he was feuding with Ben Carson that he didn’t slap the name on him of that character from Tom Sawyer.

And yet, Trump is totally mystified why white supremacists are endorsing him. Being this clueless should be a disqualifier from the presidency.

I think I made my point with this cartoon, not that someone with Trump’s intellect will get it.

Trump Veep Stakes


cjones05172016

The New York Times published an article last Sunday which Donald Trump describes as a hit piece. That means it’s a must-read.

Trump is upset that the article paints him as a charter member of the HeMan Women Haters Club, though it doesn’t attribute any statements to him worse than anything he’s said on tape. In fact, a great portion of the article covers his promoting women in his businesses and placing them in leadership roles.

One of the women is upset, saying her comments were taken out of context and that The Times promised it wouldn’t be a hit piece. I’m not sure of that as reporters usually don’t promise an interviewee what sort of coverage they’re going to receive. I did find it bizarre that this one subject talked about how uncomfortable Trump made her feel when they first met, and then dated him. But hey, money changes everything.

Trump is promising to sue The Times for libel. You can laugh or roll your eyes at this point. First off, he usually doesn’t follow through on a threat and second, he doesn’t have a case. The New York Times hasn’t reported anything on him that’s worse than he’s accused Bill Clinton of doing.

Trump says the report that he’s been sexist, or misogynistic are false and he’s always respected women. I don’t find the comments in the article difficult to believe as this man has been on tape before describing a women being flat-chested, how he’d like to see one on her knees, how he’d probably date his daughter, and speculating on his youngest daughter’s potential breasts when she was an infant.

Trump doesn’t make you give him a normal “ew.” When he talks about his daughters in a sexual context it’s more of an “EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!” Donald Trump, what the hell is wrong with you?

There’s also a lot of talk about Trump’s Vice Presidential nominee and who it will be. We’ve been talking about that when we’re not talking about him objectifying women or impersonating his publicist to talk about his own sex life.

I would have bet my money on Trump nominating a woman. That would balance his ticket and help him run against a woman. But now that the party is fractured I believe the smart thing would be to nominate an establishment type. The type who’s educated on government, foreign policy, and basically how things work, which is all stuff Trump doesn’t have a clue on or any interest in understanding. I can’t think of any female in the GOP establishment who hasn’t said hell no to being Trump’s running mate that really fits that bill, except for one.

Jan Brewer, kinda establishment but not Washington establishment and she’s kinda stupid. There’s Sarah Palin and if there is a god he will nominate her, but she doesn’t understand how anything works either except for a GOP expense account. Carly Fiorina could be the first person ever nominated twice in one year but she’s not establishment, and again, doesn’t understand how things work. Plus, I don’t think Trump could stand to look at Fiorina on a daily basis. Michele Bachmann, no. Again, stupid. Nikki Haley would be an excellent choice as she’s smart, educated, knows how things work, the establishment loves her, even Democrats like her and she can sway Independents, and she’s pretty enough for a sexist pig. Alas, I said she’s smart which means she won’t have anything to do with the career suicide of a Trump campaign.

That leaves Iowa Senator Joni Ernst. She’s a hideous human being but she’s Washington. She’s fairly new to the establishment but she also has Tea Party support. She can rile up the base. Her downside is, she probably doesn’t really know how things work but she can probably fake it. She’s also castrated hogs, and that might discourage Trump from being around her.

Seriously, Trump probably doesn’t wanna be around a woman capable of cutting a pig’s nuts off.

Trump’s Thin Skin


cjones08112015

I don’t think I have ever seen a candidate as thin-skinned as Donald Trump. He complains he’s not treated fairly. He states if you’re not nice to him then he won’t be nice to you. If he’s not treated fairly by the GOP then he might run a third-party campaign just because his feelings were hurt. He attacks people who ask him tough questions, which you know is going to happen if you’re running for president. It’s going to happen more and more if you’re the front runner. This is only August, 15 months before the election. Is Donald Trump going to whine all the way to the White House?

He might. He gets support for being a big baby. A lot of people support him attacking Megyn Kelly (for asking an “unfair” question). They support his attack of everyone.

He’s also getting a bit more criticism but that’s because he’s taking on Fox News. This is going to be fun.

A couple nights ago I was watching his interview on CNN and was wondering what statement he’d make that’d create headlines. He didn’t disappoint. Trump made a comment about Kelly saying that while questioning him during the debate “blood was coming out of Megyn Kelly’s eyes and blood coming out of her wherever.”

Shortly after he was barred from attending a Republican summit in Atlanta because of his sexist comments. Of course the guy who barred him has often made his own sexist remarks. Trump was OK insulting Rosie O’Donnell, Obama, liberals, Mexicans, etc. But attacking a Fox anchor, oh the humanity.

This “punishment” will only rally more people to defend Trump and give Trump another excuse to say he’s being mistreated.

If elected president (play with me here and pretend it can happen) is he going to insult world leaders? Will he be Whiner In Chief?

I don’t think that Georgia conservative group should have prevented Trump from speaking. He’s a major candidate, like it or not. He needs to be heard, misogynistic comments, warts and all. This is actually an attempt by the GOP establishment to defeat him. That’s going to help him.

You don’t need to hang Trump. You just need to give him the rope. Eventually he’ll hang himself. He’s gotta!

Oh my god, I just kinda stood up for Trump.

On another note: Yes, I know. Fortune cookies aren’t really Chinese. They’re an American invention.

Here’s the rough.

Sexism and Misogyny In The GOP


cjones08082015

Did you see the debate? Megyn Kelly asked Donald Trump about his horrible comments toward women. Kelly said “You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” Trump responded that he’s only used those terms on Rosie O’Donnell, as if that’s OK. Kelly pointed out that he’s used those slurs on other women, as though using them on just O’Donell is OK.

After the debate Trump went on the attack on Megyn Kelly, calling her unprofessional and not very good (while reminding us that he’s terrific, very good and he won the debate, everyone loved him, and he smells better than Old Spice and pumpkin pie).

The other GOP candidates on the stage didn’t want to be associated with such sexism and misogyny and criticized Trump for his disparaging remarks against women, during the debate and after. I made that up. They remained silent on the issue.

Being a sexist-misogynistic pig will not hurt Trump among the GOP. The party is full of fellow pigs. They have cultivated this among their base. Their poster boy is Rush Limbaugh who calls women “feminazis” and “sluts.” They wonder how they could create such a monster as Trump after years of drawing not just sexists, but racists, homophobes and in general, knuckle-dragging-cave-dwelling troglodytes. Hmm? How could that have happened?

I can think of at least three conservative political cartoonists who constantly illustrate Hillary Clinton as ugly. I can dismiss that as most caricatures are ugly (and I’m fully aware I often get criticized for the way I draw women). But then they make comments toward her looks, as though a 67-year old woman is supposed to be a supermodel. I imagine these guys have pinup posters hanging on their walls of their grandmothers.

Earlier this week a conservative colleague drew Hillary Clinton as a witch. Yeah, that’s not sexist.

The thing is, these guys don’t know they’re being neanderthals. To them it’s funny. This is why conservatives suck at humor. They should stop trying. Just stop.

But ya know, if they’re not smart enough to figure out why women have stopped voting Republican then they’ll never figure out the part about exhibiting some humanity.
