I draw a lot of cartoons about what some have called the “battle of the sexes.” But that’s an old phrase. I am not sure where it originated so I looked it up and see the phrase is a Peter Sellers movie, a radio contest, an album by Ludacris, and of course it was the famous tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. But I would like to suggest we retire this phrase. Why does it have to be a battle? It doesn’t. We need communication (in all forms, see above cartoon) and laughter to bring us together.
This is what I try to do in my book. Yes, I make fun of men, but do so lovingly. If we can’t make fun of each other, then it is a battle. So clearly, laughter is the better way to go.
My new book of cartoons is called “Women On Men,” published by Narrative Magazine. It can be purchased here, and here for kindle, and if you email me, I will send you a signed-with-drawing inside copy at a discount! firstname.lastname@example.org
