I sense that Fish is gender “flexible”. He seemed a floater when I first saw his
cartoons about two years ago. Why not come out (of the water that is) Fish?

white men, power, sex, objectification, the overly-calculated intellectual estilo—conflagration of politics.

Ok this guy does not want to mess up his perfect body with unwanted
So being a male so to speak he has a choice . On the other hand if there was a
female head her choices would be limited since men in the USA trump women’s
Women should be control of women’s health.

Truthdig should have rejected this one.

The interpretation which makes most sense to me:
The perfect human being would have the brain of a younger Noam Chomsky and a generic version of a conventionally “ideal” young female body.
Pretty offensive in my book.

That is indeed Noam Chomsky’s head atop that wonderful, lush female torso:
It’s certainly one version of perfection. Which is not to say that there aren’t some female heads that could have been drawn atop that body, but Chomsky has a unique intellect.

I interpret this as a REPUBLICANS idea of the perfect sex partner. Or, considering the fact MOST of this debate about birth control and abortion is controlled by MEN… This is the republican idea of the PERFECT ONE to make the argument against women having any say over their own bodies. Even with a female body, only a MAN can have a say. ... Either way, it makes me laugh.

Maani—- I think that we’re invited to consider whether
we regard intellect as “male”

Interesting…my initial interpretation of this was that “perfection” was a woman’s body with a man’s brain. A bit chauvinist, to say the least.
Hey, Fish - wanna enlighten us?

Nice body, but from the neck up- a double bagger.

Noam Chomsky - A Critique Of Madisonian Democracy

Maybe, if it is indeed Chomsky, he is gazing in odd wonder at the joy he has found.
If any one is bad to the bone, it is surely Noam Chomsky, who is actually quite traditional, but bad to the bone nevertheless.

I’m still trying to figure out what is going on here.
Is it a dashing young Chomsky smoking a pipe (ala Hugh Hefner) observing his female equipment with a sort of pleasantly detatched air of approval and perhaps a touch of delight???
(I only came up with Chomsky because it was one of the tags)

digger, concentrate on the pipe and the eyeglasses. see
if that takes you anyplace.

What this suppose to mean.
Is Mr. Fish trying to tell us that a perfect human being, according to him, should be a combination of more female than male components!.

That one should have been aborted.
