Michael Kupperman and David Rees have been contributing a biweekly comic called “See Something, Say Something” to the New York Times editorial page, but this week it didn’t appear, for reasons explained by Kupperman:
Some of you may have noticed that David Rees and I have been producing a comic for the New York Times Week in Review section called “See Something, Say Something” every other Sunday… but we’re not in today’s paper. That’s because they objected to David’s script this week and refused to consider printing it… the subject matter (male rage, online bullying & the hashtag #yesallwomen) was “too sensitive.”
I disagree very strongly with that decision, because I feel David was making a point that deserves to be made. So I went ahead and completed the script as written; here it is, see for yourselves.
You can see the whole thing in the link, but it’s nothing more than you see every day on Tumblr and so on, with extra bonus points for two really funny guys, Rees and Kupperman, poking fun at their own cohort. But maybe peeing babies was too much for the Times? Anyway…disappointing.
