Pardon My Purse


Ten years from now, when this shows up again as a repeat, I’ll use the subject line “2020 Called…” and note that as late as the Pandemic Era, a cross-dressing reference was still acceptable as  punchline (just as, ten years earlier than that, “fear of being thought if as gay” was still good for a chuckle).

Please note that I’m not being critical of Mr. Lee: he’s writing for 2020 audiences. My point is that 2020 comics shouldn’t be judged by 2030 standards.

(Of course this is assuming that the overall trend toward tolerance continues, but we won’t discuss that here)
