i'm really glad that both elyse and connie posted a thoughtful and well written comments. i think it's really important to discuss these things, (these things being context, violence, and whatever's not bacon) and rarely does it seem to occur on this site of late. which is a true shame since a lot of what drew me here was intelligent talk, banter or of course, excellent sarcasm.
this is one of the strongest cases of context's relevance i've ever seen. this image upsets me , but does not offend me, and i'd be remiss if didn't say that most of the reason that i am not being offended is because i know who did the work on this poster. and knowing that connie is not a misogynist bastard goes a long way here.
