My action may have been small and insignificant in the Grand Scheme of Things, but I made sure I posted a panel of my webcomic characters — Canadian as they may be — taking the knee because defending this kind of freedom knows no boundaries.

However… I was pretty disappointed to see that hardly any other LGBT cartoonists had followed suit, particularly those with the kind of massive followings I can only dream of. I found that personally and professionally reprehensible. If we cant understand why this symbol is so important, then… well, you’ve said it better than I.
