Life Imitates the Comics

In February of this year, Gannett canceled Mallard Fillmore across the board. (Even writing "Gannett" almost makes me want to wash my mouth out with soap.) The cancelation was due to two successive strips with quotes from that "Joe Biden".

The first depicts Mr. Biden musing: “For too long, segregation sullied women’s sports … They were restricted to women! Thank goodness those dark days are over.”

In the second cartoon, Mr. Biden says, “I hear what you, the American people, want me to do … kill fossil-fuel jobs … devalue Americans’ labor … and help more transgender athletes beat the *@!# out of biological females.”

Fast forward to present time. Lia Thomas is a trans swimmer at Penn. He swam for three years on the men's team; now she is swimming on the women's team.

I'll give you three guesses what's happening, and the first two don't count. Yep, she is breaking just about every record imaginable. And the parents of REAL women on the women's swim team at Penn are rightfully (in my opinion) really pissed off.

Even though he lost a crapload of money when his comic strip was dropped from over 250 newspapers, I hope Bruce Tinsley is smiling at being proven spot on correct.
