Draw Muhammad Day @ 08:53 am

Tags: ,

So... today's Draw Muhammad Day.

From one side, I hear that it will be striking a great blow for freedom and justice if I scrawl an image of Muhammad biting the testicles off a whippet.
From another side, I hear that one of my unexamined privileges as a white dude is ready access to pencils, and the use of perspective in a depiction of Muhammad would be an act of European imperialism.
From Pakistan, they've blocked Facebook and YouTube, which makes the country sound something like paradise.

I can't draw anyway, so...

I'm calling myself mostly in the middle, though a bit more towards the former rather than the latter. Because the latter is just silly. Muslims will just have to learn to get over themselves a bit and ignore perceived insults to their religion. Some people would call that imperialism, I call it "oh shut the fuck up."

I was figuring if I need Muhammad in my art then it'll happen. But a day expressly for tweaking the noses of Muslims? That's just rude.

Yay equal opportunity anti-religion!
