Analysis of Harold Hedd

Dear Editor,

After reading all the letters supporting the Harold Hedd cartoons I thought I'd write and add to the crap.

I think Harold Hedd is mildly amusing, as are the other cartoons you print, and I am not offended by sex/dope/violence, but I don't like the degrading way the female sex is depicted submissive only ever seen being crewed by our hero Harold. It doesn't look much like a two - way operation to me. I would love to do my own version of this cartoon but unfortunately my artistic abilities are not quite up to standard.


Ms Woman Power.

ps I bet you wrote all those letters in last week's Salient yourself.

If you knew how much work it takes to publish a 32-page Salient, you wouldn't make that Last comment. But thanks for your comments on Harold Hedd. It's very easy to label something as sexist - it's much more difficult to explain why it is so. - Ed
