An issue that bothers me with every passing election cycle is the seeming hypocrisy of Democrats and liberals in their willingness to turn a blind eye to sexual misconduct allegations when it comes to their preferred candidates.

A group that is largely known for its support of victims and survivors in the wake of the #MeToo movement, this comic was meant to highlight that these standards are at times conditional, with supporters overlooking or even outwardly discrediting those impacted by sexual assault and misconduct when done at the hands of Democratic officials.

With each passing day, I found myself looking at more and more headlines and articles either from or covering parents and adults who claimed to be advocating on behalf of kids and their comfort in demanding the mask mandates end, despite the fact that at the time very few children had been vaccinated.

It seemed to me, as well as to many of my peers, that these individuals were acting like toddlers themselves, opting to throw a tantrum rather than do their part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Going back to school in-person was an adjustment. In the privacy and relative safety of my home, I and so many others went through a multitude of changes as people, adjusting to living almost entirely indoors. One year into the pandemic, this comic reflects on the transition back to in-person programming and work.

While trying to come up with a comic idea, I found myself flicking back and forth between a variety of headlines; how could I pledge my energy to providing a commentary on any one single issue, when there were so many prevalent issues that I found concerning?

The bingo board came about as a result of that, becoming a hodge-podge of headlines and sentiments that floated around my office and classrooms.

Going through your daily routine when feeling overburdened and burned out by constant exposure to bad news, whether it be environmental dread, mass shootings, racial violence, or health concerns, can be exhausting. This comic was meant to capture that, and convey the feeling of our inability to escape the seemingly-never-ending stream of upsetting information.
