Stick figures are for kids?

I love Kevin Smith's movies. I love his Q&A sessions titled "An Evening with Kevin Smith", and "An Evening with Kevin Smith, Evening Harder." He has a new movie called "Zach and Miri make a Porno."

There have been some problems getting it promoted...understandably.

CNN ran this Article.

Here is an excerpt I would like to draw your attention to:

Diane Levin, an education professor specializing in child development at Boston's Wheelock College, said the posters at city bus stops send a message to children that working in the porn industry is an acceptable occupation.

"It's drawing attention to a movie which is mainstreaming and normalizing pornography, saying if you need money, this is what you do," said Levin, co-author of "So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids."

The stick-figure images are especially appealing to youngsters, since "stick figures are something for children," she said.

Now, all I am saying is that Diane has obviously never seen XKCD.


  1. Three posts from you in one day?! You should lose your voice more often!

    I really think a link to last Friday's xkcd would have been apt. Talk about stick figure sex ed...

  2. you should send the editor this one...

  3. lol... liz were you thinking of that one too? i didnt see your comment til i posted.

    and i personally have the feeling CCD has written a heckuva lot more than he's posting... sure wish i could access his drafts folders... LOL!!!!!

  4. Honestly...I've not written anything except what has been posted here. Work and Brandon have been so traumatic that I've just been vegging out at home. :-)

    Any yes, the stick figure sex positions popped right into my head when I read the article on CNN this morning.
