VT Blogs: DTWOF

Posted on Wed, May 25, 2005 at 3:48 PM

Vermont cartoonist Alison Bechdel, who draws the strip Dykes To Watch Out For, just posted an interesting entry on her blog (which, as her assistant, I helped her launch).

Seems she got an email this week from conservative David Horowitz. Who's he? Says Alison: "He’s the once-radical-now-conservative force behind Students for Academic Freedom—an organization that is more or less to academic freedom what Bush’s Clear Skies Initiative is to reducing mercury emissions."

Horowitz contacted her and asked for permission to reprint a panel of her leftist, lesbian-centric comic on the SAF website. She drew a panel recently in which conservative lesbo Cynthia chastises Ginger, her liberal lesbo professor, and reports her to SAF. Alison was making fun of SAF, but no matter.

She gave them permission to reprint the strip (here). They paid her $100, and now she's asking people to comment on her blog and tell her where to send the money. Weigh in here.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
