Some Outrageous Sexism








Some people may already think that displaying the female form for the pleasure of others is inherently sexist. To them I say, grow up. The above cartoons do, however, stand out more misogynistic than most and it is for this reason, as well as the excellent artwork, that I post them.

From The Esquire Cartoon Album, 1958

The gentleman with less than gentlemanly intent smuggling his girlfriend into a hotel room strikes me as more mischievous than misogynistic.

You are right. I missed the fact that the young stowaway appears to be smiling and is thus in on the ruse.

Who drew the Organ grinder with monkey-girl? I can't make out the cartoonist's name.
