Barbie and Baxter wonder why no one believes women...

That's the real shame--we're so far from our own ideal that we've forgotten all about that ideal. Rape should be an unthinkable crime, but for men who commit it and other crimes approaching it, we are too quick to shy away from the horror of it.  We need to be brave enough to believe the woman who claims she is a victim of it. It's like how everyone wants to call Hitler a horrible monster when really he wasn't a monster at all but just a really horrible human being. That's a much more depressing thing to face. We want to deny it because the truth really is really pretty horrible.

By the way: drawing comics for free every week is actually hard work--throw me a couple bux on Patreon, wouldja? Thanks! Or just buy me a cuppa joe!
