Oh, dear. I’m afraid some may think this cartoon is a reflection of what I think of certain men: that they don’t have a backbone. Or, you know, any kind of bone, anywhere. Or any word beginning with “bone.” (I’m bad at Scrabble.)
They rate diamonds by their hardness…why not bones?
No, this cartoon is not just about men, for I judge both men and women for their strength: how they “stand up” , or don’t, for either themselves, a cause, an opinion. Because without courage, and something strong to stand on, one is just a quivering pile of jello. Gross.
Even the doctor here can’t give a full-out direct prognosis; he wants a second opinion! What a weenie.
Plus, my latest in PsychCentral: Better not show this cartoon to your therapist.
