More college cartoon controversies
And yet another college campus cartoon controversy. This time at the University of Connecticut where two cartoons have been deemed offensive to women. The two cartoons were published on September 21st – one re-writing the “Sugar and Spice” poem to read, “Forget sugar and spice and everything nice. Try crabs, scabs and everything viral. That’s what girls are really made of” and the other depicting a male throwing a diamond into the bedroom to bribe the girl implying she’ll have sex for the ring or possibly the promise of marriage.
The Daily Campus editor has stated that the paper will have a “stronger policy” of what is printed. Instead of one editor reviewing the comics there now be three and that the paper staff will attend a workshop on violence against women.
