Kara Passey (Seriously)
Common themes represented here:
Handmaidens of the patriarchy. Calling people out for doing problematic shit is all well and good, but who exactly do women normally call out, and why? Handmaidens of the patriarchy frequently or exclusively “call out” — meaning policing speech, values, behaviors, dress, or life choices — other women, and not men. Calling out men is dangerous and likely to lead to a violent confrontation, and women know this: the facts of male violence against women and male politics and positions being backed up by the threat of male violence is the sum and substance of patriarchy, and the foundation of women’s oppression at men’s hands. It’s much easier to “call out” other women, even though women are not the source of women’s oppression; thus, calling them out is unlikely to radically change patriarchal values or women’s political standing in relation to men.
This comic is not clear about the who, but when taken in the context of this artist’s other work, it becomes clear who she regularly calls out, and it’s not men.
