Everybody Draw Mohammed Day

To each his own, but this sums up my feelings pretty well:

That's all I got to say on the subject.

  2. Some guys in my art class spent the entire period making a huge poster of Mohammed using news articles and other religious figures (I contributed to the lower half of the face, btw). One of them was a practicing Muslim. So I kind of get what this cartoon is saying, but I think that as long as no one's making a mockery of the religion itself, and not shoving it in anyone's face, it's all good. But I don't know.

  3. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. It just seems kind of...unnecessary to me. If you genuinely care about censorship or the fact that journalists lives were threatened then that's one thing, but the majority of people blowing up my tumblr dashboard don't. They don't care at all. And that kind of bothers me (though what you're describing sounds a lot different then the stick figures I've been bombarded with).

    Plus there's no real risk for us. Without the risk there's no real statement either IMO.
