Politically Correct Hypocrisy by Niagargoyle Politically Correct Hypocrisy by Niagargoyle
Weekly Barometer Submission

I admit it, I'm a hypocrite. But you know, so are a lot of people, and this is a great example of it. For those who don't know, two years ago in California, a high school girl was being teased by her fellow students about being a Mormon. While the students were teasing her, she muttered under her breath, "That's so gay." A teacher heard her and put her on disciplinary charges for being culturally insensitive. The girls tormentors got away without any consequences.

So apparently it is acceptable to openly harass somebody about their religion than it is to almost inaudibly mutter a phrase that has been commonplace in high schools for the past eight years or so. Apparently even politically correct can't manage to be impartial.

PS I'm adding you to my watch because this is brilliant.

Nope. It's satire.

As a political cartoonist, my focus was on things that people do that don't make sense from a logical standpoint. This was on the double standard of politically correct, a philosophy based on total equality.

I personally don't care what people do with their lives as long as they don't hurt other people. I do think that people could stand to laugh at themselves a little more often, though.

You know what they say: Political correctness asserts that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of poop by the clean end.

At least you approve. I've gotten hate mail letters for getting this published. Personally, I wanted to get the Lord of the Rings comic printed, but the editor made the choice. One letter was from OSU's dean of the College of Humanities. I guess it's okay to make fun of people who won't defend themselves, and even using the word "retarded" makes me the devil.

And, after reading your description... I'm saddened to hear of such things. At least YOU'RE honest about the possibility of hypocritical things in yourself.

I want to do a comic that's a flyer for hypocrite pride week, and my two characters are like:
"What do you think? It's the only activity where everybody is invited."
"Yeah, but nobody would want to come."

Maybe in the fall. It's too close to gay pride week, and Tom says he will only be able to get one of my two comics in before summer.
