I’m not sure if its the times we live in or what but the filth that people have been posting on comic sites on Facebook has been getting really disgusting.
I belong to a few sites where single panel cartoons are posted, most are older and they are not posted by the cartoonist themselves, they are posted by random people, so that could be a copyright issue right there, but anyway, the filth on these sites is getting worse and worse. I’m assuming they are family-friendly sites, since all of Facebook is supposedly family-friendly.
It started with sexual cartoons, probably from old Playboys or something and now it’s turned to filthy bigoted stuff. One guy posted a really nasty comic and when I called him out on it, he said, “Oh, I thought we could post old Hustler comics on here.” He was so racist that he didn’t realize what the issue was.
Another moron posts a comic of a plane crashing, the day after the Lion Air plane crash in Indonesia with 189 people aboard. His comic, showing the plane crashing into the ocean says, “RIP.” When people were offended, the excuse was that it was his way of showing respect.
Maybe I’m getting old and things are offending me. But I don’t think it’s that, I think it’s the times we live in today -anything goes, offensive or not.
