This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by the middling white racists continuously asking concerning the short stature of my Activist character. By default they've decided on their own that he is a strict caricature of the artist and thus what they consider a "manlet." Naturally I'm amused by the antics, but it would be a whole lot more interesting if they would use the time to address the actual points of argument instead of failing miserably to psychologically profile me based on what I decide to draw.

I'll be a sport and answer the question, but I fully expect them to simply ignore the explanation in favor of whatever they conjured since that is their time-honored preference for how they move in the earth. I made the character short for a few different reasons, thus and so:

  • The child form represents the fledgling #ADOS movement

  • You may have noticed that I tend to be a bit wordy while lettering his activist messaging, and the short figure provides more room for me to rant above his head.

  • The character's very first appearance was in a super-deformed state, and when I decided to keep him as the star of the regular gag comic, I reinterpreted his look into a pre-teen age.
