Love the artwork!

The Latin is Lorem Ipsum, a standard filler text used by designers to fill fields of text if they do not have the actual content yet. I've chosen to use filler text, because I wanted to leave open what kind of censorship was being used.

I did consider putting in English text with phrases like 'Trump is great', 'Muslims are terrorists' (making it clear that's not the whole story), but that would have made my point about censorship one-sided. It would be equally one-sided if the text were to read 'Trump is evil' etc.

But you have pointed out the weakest point of the cartoon (one I was already worried about). Might need to change the text for a standard English news text.

Thanks for the feedback.

Beautiful work, Elena, and very true!

It's about the news feed algorithm of Facebook that decides what you get to see in your timeline, and thus also decides what you do NOT get to see. That can be seen as a form of censorship; it leads to the so called 'filter bubble' where you only see posts and news of things you are likely to agree with.

Loved the GIF you posted on Facebook. Brilliant! It's on my wish list to make it possible to post animated GIFs in the newsroom as well.

@noor I think you actually agree with Pete and disagree with me; I'd be fine with 60 different genders. Biological differences aside, a lot of gender is a societal construct, and people should be free to give their own meaning to it, in my opinion.

Remive = remove

No need to apologize for your opinion, Pete, just wanted to share mine 😬 And please don't remive the cartoon, after all 'there is more than one truth'.

Even if it were 99%, a majority imposing its will on a minority, however small, is always wrong, given the fact that there is no harm done whatsoever to the 95% by allowing the 5% to live as they choose.

Don't know why you'd think I do not have a high opinion of your work, btw, just happen to disagree with your point of view here.
