We Dun Goofed | Cheshire Cat Studios Webcomic #11

Uh-oh. It looks like a certain #progressive individual didn’t take kindly to our anti-fit-shaming comments in our recent “FIT-SHAMING IN VIDEO GAMES: A RACE TO THE BOTTOM…” After Hours podcast. What kind of heinous internet retribution does he have in store for LaughingMan, CineMax, and Katie?! :O

Dedicated to @Sargon_of_Akkad, @Veeh_Ro, and anyone else who has been harassed with such subversive tactics by these “tolerant” individuals.

  1. Damn… since when does Cinemax’s mom have pics of ponies in her home? Jeez…

    Awesome comic, as always.

  2. More people need to pick up the “I backed traced it” meme. This comic is awesome. I’m really thankful all the people I care about know how opinionated I am & know my less than PC sense of humor, so I’m not afraid of them turning on me if a crazy radical tries to slander me to them.

    I really hate how people turn to public shamming to achieve their political goals. The last thing we need to do to people is bully them and marginalize them, no matter what. Hate groups target those people who are disenfranchised and isolated, not to mention just the general mental trauma that occurs when someone is isolated from others. Our need for acceptance from others is so innate, that targeting it almost as bad as making them fearful for their life. I know that some people have anxiety when they are around an open racist (or any kind of bigot for that reason), but bullying that bigot won’t change their minds, it’ll just give them more reason to hate whatever group they already hate. Not to mention the inherent problem that these social shamming strategies could be (and are) used against people who are not racist.

    Everyone has a right to choose who they associate with and they’re also free to treat people they find unpalatable however they choose; but I will always encourage people to try and find common ground before kicking someone to the curve. The last thing we need to do to someone with heavily ingrained prejudices is to mentally traumatize them… but that’s just my opinion.

    • That sort of does seem to be the tactic of choice for these bastions of acceptance and tolerance, doesn’t it? Attempt to silence those who are simply talking and promoting dialogue by “outing” them to family and coworkers. It’s as reprehensible as what has historically been done to those belonging to various minorities.

      Caller: “Mr Bossman, did you know that Johnson is a bi-sexual socialist Buddhist that once ate foie gras? You had better fire him!”

      Fascism 101.

      • I’m highly curious just how exactly does it work in “more progressive” countries? My boss would just probably say “good for you”, then ask me where I got my foie gras and whether they still have more… Then again, we do live in “the backwater of EU”.

        Besides, if they said someone was bi-sexual, wouldn’t it imply that, at least sometimes, that person is gay? And sacking LGBT folk is an exceptional court adventure just asking to happen…

  3. It’s no surprise that these “real” progressives choose to basically find and target the “weaker” people who can easily be manipulated into agreeing with their “facts”
