Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

Okay so the cover-heroine is white and blonde, and that's an honest hit. However: "highly sexualized, with proportions that could confound even the doll makers at Mattel" leaves me confused. No pinched-hourglass figure, no over-rounded bottom, no video-game breasts... she's even wearing full-length sleeves and pants, and the pants aren't just colored legs! And as CityDweller pointed out: Trump looks like that image in his wildest fever dreams alone, which based on a variety of data points is his general mindset.

The cape, however? Has no one ever heard of Edna Mode?

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

He might not have started a feminist wave but he sure should start a South Carolina taxpayer backlash. Take a look

Re: “Glenn McConnell on LGBTQ community: 'It's not my job to judge people. Someone else will do that'

He was absolutely right. God will have the final say and will judge them. I don't what you people think about it. It's perversion and an abomination.

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

Such nonsense. If anything, Trump is the best possible leader for American women. While they are preoccupied with silly issues like "manspreading" and "free-bleeding" and bathrooms for transsexuals, meanwhile the REAL issues creep up on women like Syrian men organizing flash-mobs to gang-rape women in the cultural rite called "taharrush gamea". Trump is your greatest guarantee against these real problems. Don't let all of the U.S. be a repeat of Cologne, Germany on New Year's Eve 2015.

I am a woman and I and my daughters voted for Hillary. I know some of these other woman who voted for Trump and they lack an education!

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

I am a 64 yo white woman who did not vote for Trump but Hillary. Please don't put me in a category, a lot of us live in a red state. My answer is not written in anger, but just for your information. Peace to all. I am glad so many are so viligant about watching out for the American people.

Bryan-Charity Nance - Nobody said the CCP wasn't hypocritical, you see it doesn't matter what they actually do, just what they say that matters to SJWs.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

I also shake my head at the irony of including ads touting "Super Boobs Sunday Party" and "Totally Nude until 4 AM" for various "Gentlemen's clubs" in the city.

Re: “Charleston's Shepard Fairey creates inauguration protest posters

So is this over-hyped hipster still stealing images from other social movements while casually appropriating the copy-written work of black artists?

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

I thought we were post-gender and post-racial.

Why not a CCP feminist superhero caricature based on a composite of Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal?

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

Count on the City Paper to always spew, and justify, their form of White Guilt, racism, sexism, blah blah. It is a form of shaming and, as this election demonstrated, half the country (including the evil, privileged white women) got tired of it and voted. Not falling for your much hyped rhetoric where you are always the victim...

Re: “Proposed changes could increase workforce housing requirements in Charleston

Why not use tax incentives to incentivize developers to build many thousands of tiny inexpensive apartments, so that poor people can afford to live here?

Re: “Let the Yorktown remind us of the fight for religious freedom

Tom - Up until the recent ruling in May by the Supreme Court they were forced to provide funding through their insurers to their employees. My comments state "when they were forced to fund abortions". Religious persecution, and the real threat of it, doesn't disappear because you won a court case.

What about a mixed race woman? Preferably a woman descended from several races, so she could represent several races, not just whites.

Re: “Itinerant Literate pairs with local restaurants for a book club and pop-up series

Yay! This is by far the best book club ever! The food is amazing, the books are complex and intriguing, the conversation is invigorating, and the camaraderie is not to be missed. Itinerant Literate and The Junction is a beautiful pairing.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

Oh my God would you all get over yourselves!? It's a cartoonish, satirical, drawing that looks as much like you as it does me. That's how "super-hero/super-heroine" types look. Do you think Trump has such a trim waistline and muscular arms? No, but it's supposed to look like a comic book character.

This is what happens when Social Justice Warriors begin to turn on each other and it is the unfortunate but unavoidable product of finding fault in everything that anybody does.

Re: “How not to depict Trump-wave feminism

A drawing of a WoC punching Trump would literally have given the image a much greater impact. They are the people most adversely affected by Trumpism and its vile blend of racism, classism and misogyny. No, a punch to the face is not "tasteful" but then, neither is systemic oppression!
