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.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
