American Carper: The Onion's fake editorial cartoonist channels Men's Rights Activists, again

The Onion's fake fake cartoonist Kelly channels MRA rhetoric
The Onion’s fake editorial cartoonist channels MRA rhetoric

I love, love, love The Onion’s fake editorial cartoonist “Kelly,” who so brilliantly parodies the terrible reactionary cartoons that infest the op-ed pages of so many of America’s crappy local newspapers. Men’s Rights Activists, take note: this is what real satire looks like.

The cartoon that “Kelly” posted yesterday is an only slightly exaggerated take on MRA rhetoric, depicting an evil ex-wife as the “REAL American Sniper,” gleefully targeting an innocent ex-husband to pelt with bon-bons and endless criticism.

Wait, did I say exaggeration? If anything, “Kelly” is more restrained than many MRAs. Yesterday, you may recall, I posted an A Voice for Men meme claiming, among other things, that feminists were demanding “the right to kill, maim, and berate husbands.”

In “Kelly’s” cartoon, the evil ex-wife only demands the right to target her ex with a “barrage of carping” — no killing or maiming.

The Men’s Rights movement, beyond parody.

The bonbons thing is way older than WHTM. I remember my dad going on about bonbons when I was young.

suffrajitsu,
There is a fabric store that will take your design and print the fabric for you. They also offer designs other people have made and a search function for the design elements.

I suppose it’s well labeled but…what does the blank space represent, I need to know!
