You had to explain the intention of the comic.

Nobody explained it to me. I can only view the world through my own eyes.

If I (and the same applies to everyone else), tried to second guess how the world might misread everything ...

I hope you see where that goes.

There are people in this world who consider any reference to events (or anything) prior to around 9,000, or 11,000, or 20,000 years ago (even they cannot agree the time frame) as blasphemy.

Archaeologists, scientists, teachers and little kids playing with their toy dinosaurs cannot possibly go though life considering the sensibilities of that quite large and quite vocal and worryingly politically active minority.

Sexism is in a different league to that; but still the point carries. I did not, and do not see anything wrong with the cartoon. I did not antisipate *any* backlash from (re-)posting a link to it. Nor do I think there should have been any.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

RIP Neil Armstrong
