New York Times Drops ‘See Something Say Something’ Strip Over #YesAllWomen

Michael Kupperman writes on his blog,

Some of you may have noticed that David Rees and I have been producing a comic for the New York Times Week in Review section called “See Something, Say Something” every other Sunday… but we’re not in today’s paper. That’s because they objected to David’s script this week and refused to consider printing it… the subject matter (male rage, online bullying & the hashtag #yesallwomen) was “too sensitive.”

I disagree very strongly with that decision, because I feel David was making a point that deserves to be made. So I went ahead and completed the script as written; here it is, see for yourselves.

See Something, Say Something 11The hashtag #YesAllWomen  has risen on Twitter in recent weeks, providing a platform for women to speak openly about the history of sexual and physical abuse in their lives at the hands of men and making the point that, yes, all women have these stories.

And naturally there have been many ugly responses from men that have simply reinforced the hashtag. Here are a few  tweets from the comics community, to put that in context.

And I would list some of the responses that the cartoon above is parodying but… no. Not today.
