Mimi & Eunice's Facebook Page
Because Facebook refuses to make thumbnails of linked horizontal images, I upload each one manually here. It’s the only way to share Mimi & Eunice comics on FB, unfortunately.
Maybe that’s because I’m french but I don’t understand this one.
It’s about the “arguments” people offer to new ideas they don’t understand: they repeat the staus quo over and over again, as if the reason I think differently (about copyright, for example, or the Ramayana, or feminism, environmental issues, etc.) is because I couldn’t have possibly ever heard the dominant paradigm. An example is this comment on yesterday’s cartoon. Those with outlying ideas tend to be extremely familiar with the status quo; have examined, analyzed, studied, thought through, and eventually rejected whatever aspect of the status quo they’ve replaced with “new” ideas that frighten others. But the frightened keep arguing back with the status quo.
Another common example of this is fundamentalist christians arguing with atheists, as if the atheists have never heard of the bible, or church, or god, or jesus. They’ve heard it; they’re steeped in it. They’ve rejected it anyway. Shocking.
This comic sums up an aggravation I have been unable to articulate for years. Thank you.
I admit that its badly done, but i still wanted to share the funney. I hope i wont get sued over This
Ooh–that might actually make a neat video ☺
