The Recorder, the school paper of Central Connecticut State University, has managed to offend (disgust?) students and facility by running a comic strip called “Polydongs” which depicts “explicit images surrounding the humiliation and degradation of a 14-year-old Latina girl.” The paper printed a disclaimer under the comic stating that they do not, “support the kidnapping of (and subsequent urinating on) children of any age or ethnicity.”
Students and faculty are demanding the editor be fired. The editor in question has a history of running questionable cartoons. Last February he let an opinion piece run entitled, “Rape Only Hurts If You Fight It” which described rape as a “magical experience that benefits ugly women.”
His response to this cartoon:
“I’m not surprised that the faculty have a problem with it, because the humor gap is huge from generation to generation,” Rowan said. “Every generation shocks the generation after it.”
The cartoonists name has yet to be identified.
