Comic Name: Learned Behavior Description: Today’s comic was adapted from writing submitted by an anonymous fan, thanks! Mouseover: Public school? More like pubic school, amirite? Image Name: homeschooling-stonetoss-political-cartoon.png Amogus: Second panel, the kid sitting in the right-most bus seat. Originally Published: 6/10/2021
What The Comic Is: A disavows the act of homeschooling, concluding kids who are homeschooled turn out weird. A school bus drives up, and the man urges that his child, Timmy, get ready to go to school. The third panel shows the man’s child, dressed in a trans dress while wearing gaudy, heavy makeup that resembles a clown. The child’s backpack bears the symbol for the “boy lover” niche of pedophilia.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: School turns people trans and also pedophiles.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: As mentioned, the symbol on the backpack is the “secret symbol” for pedophiles to express their interest specifically in young boys (“boy lover”). The inclusion of it on the backpack is very confusing, however, unless StoneToss is seriously so fucking stupid that he is now claiming education indoctrinates kids into being victims of pedophilia. Which, eh, yeah who is anyone kidding, that’s exactly what StoneToss is saying.
This is just yet another boring “WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY” comic that bitches about education. We’ve talked in length about StoneToss’ rhetoric against education and why he feels the need to rage against the horrible evil of teaching children, but this comic brings in a new facet to this tired talking point: homeschooling. StoneToss argues against public school (and by effect, makes an argument for home school) by framing it not as an issue of education, but school in general. School is just an extension of society, and StoneToss hates society because it is not (currently) enabling his racism/sexism/xenophobia/etc., therefore the very idea of sending children to a place where society influences them is horrible to StoneToss. Instead, he wants you to keep your kids home. Don’t even let them interact or experience the outside world, don’t let the LIBERAL AGENDA(tm) infect them. Stay home, reduce your life experience to a single inner-family unit where the sum total of all information ends at the shores of your stunted gene pool. Just be an ignorant fucking idiot who never learns any applicable skills or gets a good job because you didn’t receive education. That will MAKE AMERICA GREAT (AGAIN) and not to mention it will TOTALLY OWN THE LIBTARDS. Brilliant, StoneToss.
I have nothing against the concept of homeschool and in some ways it can be more beneficial than public school (specifically when a child needs a lot of deep one-on-one tutoring, which they simply don’t get at most schools across the USA), but it needs to be made very clear that this is not what StoneToss is on about. It is purely “SCHOOL BAD BECAUSE IT TEACHES INCLUSIVITY AND THAT RACISM IS WRONG”, and thus has absolutely zero redeeming factors as an argument.
Comic Name: Left Right Dichotomy Description: Sausagefest Mouseover: Make America Gay Again Image Name: drag-queen-political-comic.png Originally Published: 3/3/2020
What The Comic Is: A man and his son stand, perturbed, at the sight of drag queen Xochi Mochi reading to children. The father, concern in his eyes, leads his son through a door, to the ‘right’ side of the library. On the other side of the door, much to the father’s deadpan chagrin, is an offensive caricature of a trans woman who is wearing a sash reading “LADY MAGA”.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: The Left and Right are both the same because Donald Trump didn’t genocide trans people.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: StoneToss has no friends. He has fair weather companions, sure, but he doesn’t have friends. StoneToss, the person, was probably never very good at making friends in his real life, and so now as a jaded, lonely adult he carefully constructs this faux-reality where he purposely rejects kinship with others. This is a form of intense ego guarding, he can’t feel hurt or betrayed if he doesn’t let anyone be his friend in the first place. StoneToss likes to pretend this makes him like some kind of lone wolf Alpha Chad, who’s too laid back and better than everyone else to bother caring about them. In reality, he’s more like the whiny edgelord twink that you’d find in a hokey action/romance anime.
So with this in mind, it’s no surprise he blanket-disowns the entire concept of the Right. He’s already put Trump through the ringer in a sad downward spiral of disappointment and alt-Rightist tears (his early Trump comics were so wide-eyed and hopeful for StoneToss and his fourth Reich aspirations). So why not simply extend this disownment to the entirety of all Trump supporters and the Right in general? StoneToss is an alt-right lunatic, it might as well advance to the point he it outright eating his own. He’s good at doing that, and has done it before in the past, but this comic in particular is especially line-in-the-sand. StoneToss outright says “YUP… LEFT AND RIGHT ARE THE SAME!!!”, which is such a big step for such a little bigot. Of course, let us never mind that Trump oversaw and passed many transphobic legislature and talked constantly in public rallies about the problems of trans people existing. He didn’t fucking round up and murder or force into “institutionalized therapy” all the trans people! The Right isn’t as generally homophobic as StoneToss wants them to be!!! OH MY GOD CAN’T YOU WAKE UP AND SEE, THE RIGHT AND LEFT ARE THE SAME??? The Left wants trans and gay people to be treated like human beings, and the Right generally wants them to be treated slightly less than human beings!! It’s the same picture.
I do like that StoneToss’ stupid caricature in the third panel is more or less accurate to reality, though not in the way StoneToss intended. An egregiously and blatantly offensive parody meant to mock and deride the concept of trans people is exactly the kind of thing some MAGA-obsessed dumbfuck would really do. The only thing that doesn’t really reflect reality in this scene is that the traditional “American dad” father isn’t depicted as looking confusingly aroused/interested when he sees the MAGA drag queen.
I am once again apologizing for getting this post out late. In other news, this post marks the 100th overall post of the blog (all non-StoneToss posts counted). Interesting, innit? Anyways, I sometimes remember to Tweet blog news and updates on my Twitter. I sometimes take other people’s money when they subscribe to my Patreon. Enjoy this special 90th edition of StoneToss Is An Idiot.
Comic Name: Bug Chaser Description: Inspired by coronavirus. Mouseover: Sickos. Image Name: germophobe-comic.png Originally Published: 2/3/2020
What The Comic Is: An offensive gay caricature wearing an HRC t-shirt looks strikingly sick and meekly, with red pox and dark bags under his eyes. He points towards AMONGUS who is wearing over-the-top personal protective equipment, accusing them of being a germophobe. For some reason, this is occurring in China (as evidenced by the Chinese flag in the background).
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Being infected with STDs is part of gay culture loll.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: Ah, StoneToss. Before he became a Covid-denying lunatic (or even more of a lunatic, rather) he was serving up awesome shittakes like this. The gay man is wearing a Human Rights Committee, a UN-crerated organization that attempts to oversee the implementation of human rights in the USA and beyond. Naturally the HRC is pro-gay rights, which means StoneToss desperately hates it.
“Bug Chaser”, “Bug Catching” or “Bug Collecting” are all terms referring to sex (typically, but not limited to, male-on-male sex) where one or both parties attempt to spread STDs (typically, but again not limited to, HIV/AIDs). StoneToss loves to joke about homosexuals getting STDs, because homosexuals sometimes acquire them from sex. StoneToss is immune to this, however, because he’s probably never had sex before, and thus he firmly views it as other people’s problem. Calling all homosexuals “bug chasers” is a common derogatory.
In this case the joke is that the corona virus happened and StoneToss is somehow inferring that protecting yourself from a virus is kind of like being a homophobe because gay people all like to collect viruses and you know what if it takes two and a half fucking paragraphs to fully explain your stupid joke, maybe your stupid joke just fucking sucks?
Comic Name: Pinko Commie Description Name: I wonder what his pronouns were: (StoneToss then posts an image of a Soviet propaganda poster depicting a traditionally handsome man brandishing a hammer and sickle as the shape of Soviet Premier Vladimir Lenin looms in the background) Mouseover: Cooomrade. Image Name: fat-commie-comrade-comic.png Originally Published: 2/13/2020
What The Comic Is: A fat, neck-bearded offensive gay caricature wearing a dirty hoodie, complete with lip piercing and holding a pride flag, gazes up at a Soviet propaganda poster depicting the Soviet’s ideal “working man”. The offensive gay caricature smiles, considering himself a comrade to the man on the poster.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: The USSR was generally homophobic, ergo, gay people can not aspire towards communism.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: This is literally probably the tenth fucking “LOL PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE IDEA OF COMMUNISM IN THE MODERN DAY ARE REALLY DIFFERENT FROM SOVIET PROPAGANDA XDDD” comic StoneToss has drawn. Yes, StoneToss, we all love your unique and original idea that no one (especially not yourself) has already done and said a hundred fucking times before.
Yes, a gay fat person would probably not have been tolerated very well if they were living in the USSR. Yes, propaganda posters are propaganda posters. No, there is not some inherent hypocrisy in a gay person being pro-communism. So the most this comic is capable of saying is “haha some gay people idolize a regime that wouldn’t have wanted them”, which is maybe a valid point to make once, but StoneToss has to cling extra hard to this because it’s almost the only real point he’s capable of making. He knows this, which is why he’s constantly milking the same stupid fucking comic.
In StoneToss’ safespace, gay people idolize the romanticized imagery of the Soviet Union, oblivious to the fact that they likely wouldn’t have fit in very well in the real Soviet Union. In reality, whether or not a certain gay individual is or is not aware of the stance that the USSR (and the stance of Marx, Lenin, Stalin, etc) was primarily homophobic is really not the point. The point is that you can agree with and desire to work towards a society that operates on communistic ideals but without the homophobia. StoneToss, surprisingly, stops short of trying to directly equate “communism = homophobia” (though this is only probably because StoneToss can’t stand the thought of something he fundamentally hates, like communism, falling within his own views, like homophobia). So StoneToss weakly sticks to boring, mass-produced knee-jerks, like “ur fat but the ideal depiction of a ussr citizen isn’t fat lolololl”.
Comic Name: Groom Eternal Description: (A YouTube embed of the original Doom track At Hell’s Gate, expressing that even if StoneToss is a pathetically hateful, stupid, lonely and miserable cunt, he still knows which Doom songs to post) Mouseover: The BFG 41,000 Image Name: doom-slayer-story-time-comic.png Originally Published: 2/19/2020
What The Comic Is: Drag queen Xochi Mochi reads to a group of children while wearing their now-infamous “demon” makeup. Doom Guy walks in, without a weapon, easily being inferred as if he’s there to join the reading session.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: XOCHI MOCHI LOOKS LIKE A DEMON11111111111111
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: I often point out StoneToss’ status as a religious fruitcake. Sometimes, people argue that StoneToss is not in fact a deeply religious person outside of his StoneToss persona, and that appeals to religion are merely “acting” or “playing into a base”, ala Trump. Look, I get why people do this. It’s not fun to think someone like StoneToss is legitimately adherent to your religion or that he’s using portions of it to justify his beliefs. It’s an easy handwash to say “Naahhh, StoneToss doesn’t mean all that religion talk, he’s just putting it on as an act…“, but if there’s anything that should convince even the most skeptical onlooker that StoneToss is indeed a religious fruitcake, it is his absolute obsession with Xochi Mochi’s ‘demon’ makeup. He never shuts the fuck up about it. Xochi Mochi became a real hot topic among hardline religious politicians and other bigots, and StoneToss is no exception. He’s referenced specially Xochi several times before and after this comic, and it’s always always playing into the “demon” thing.
Google “Xochi Mochi Christian” and you get dozens and dozens of articles written by fruitcakes who are screaming and crying about the “Demonic influence” Xochi attempts to use in order to corrupt children, like these people genuinely seem to believe that Satanic influences, from actual real Satan, are at play.
But let’s talk about the art for a moment. The comic’s art. Look at panel one. Notice how Xochi is depicted as very benignly reading to the children? StoneToss doesn’t even bother to try and depict the children as uncomfortable or in danger, they’re just calmly being read to. Then Doom Guy walks in, no weapons, just a casual stance. StoneToss can’t even manage to depict this comic the right way. At the very least, it seems as if Doom Guy is going to murder a random guy for doing nothing visibly wrong. Good job, StoneToss. All you had to do was depict Xochi as cartoonishly demonic and harassing uncomfortable children and you fucked it up, because you’re an idiot.
The mouse over, “BFG 41,000” references the Doom weapon “BFG” (short for Big Fucking Gun, or maybe Best Friend Gun depending on who you ask), as for exactly what “41,000” reference, I honestly have no notion. Whenever I don’t quite understand an obscure reference in a StoneToss comic, I will look at the comic’s comments and usually someone there gives enough context to better understand what’s being said. All I see in this comic’s comments is a gay guy openly saying “I’m gay and I don’t support this!” and all of the usual StoneToss commenters insulting him/telling him to kill himself, lol.
Since I can’t find a context to 41,000, I’ll just make up my own. “41,000 refers to the number of brain cells StoneToss would have if you added 40,999 to the brain cells he currently has”.
Comic Name: Divine Right Description: It is my pleasure to have my work enjoyed by so many worthy Kings. Thanks for your support. Mouseover: You dropped this. Image Name: cancel-culture-comic.png Originally Published: 2/24/2020
What The Comic Is: A man is pulled down the edge of a cliff by a swarm of grabbing arms. This panel is labeled “cancel culture”. In the second panel, labeled “king culture”, the man is pulling himself up the edge of the cliff, as a bejeweled crown is offered to him.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: People just need to “rise up” and overcome ‘cancel culture’.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: Once again StoneToss tries to make a simplified comic and once again it’s difficult to understand. In this case, StoneToss is trying to compare ‘cancel culture’ to other forms of social injustice. Racism, sexism, etc., anything that is an inherently negative aspect to society, ‘cancel culture’ is placed adjacent to. It’s StoneToss’ way of trying to paint a picture where being cancelled for making racist comments or sexually harassing a co-worker is just as an obscene affront to justice and fairness as being the victim of racist comments or sexual harassment is.
But StoneToss probably isn’t stupid enough to actually think that (maybe). In reality, the double meaning of the comic is more like “just ignore cancel culture, you can be a KING”, which, given the context of why one would be targeted by cancel culture, translates out to “be a shitty person but just ignore it because StoneToss legitimately thinks racism and sexism is okay”.
I am all for a discussion on cancel culture sometimes going ‘too far’ or being used as an excuse to randomly bully people, but you don’t see any of that occurring at any legitimate level of cancel culture. Let’s use an example that people from the World’s Most Intelligent Website (Reddit) can perhaps understand.
A short while back, Dan Avidan, half of YouTube duo ‘GameGrumps’ and known better by his performance name Danny Sexbang, was implicated in some nasty personal bisnis. Sexbang was revealed to have been contacting fans of his work (mostly fans of GameGrumps) for sex, ghosting them afterwards and on a few occasions was alleged to having sex with fans that contacted him when they were only 17 (though all sex occurred after they turned 18). While Sexbang’s actions can easily be seen as slightly scummy and make him look like a creepy asshole, the allegations didn’t lead anywhere, accusers ended up apologizing and the whole thing very quickly and quietly blew over, only to be mentioned in basement-level GameGrumps fandom hangouts (like Reddit!).
Avidan didn’t need to ‘rise up’ against the tyranny of cancel culture. There wasn’t any. Sure, he got some shit for it and he’ll probably deal with it more in the future (especially if he continues fucking and flying with his fans). This is because, while cancel culture movements can be used to try and bully people on smaller levels, no one is suffering from life-shattering, career-ending cancel culture without good reason. Roseanne Barr was cancelled because she said something legitimately offensive, but further than that, often when someone is ‘cancelled’, it’s not exactly for their first offensive. Cosby, Weinstein, Barr (the former two actually being persecuted legally for what they did). In more “nerd culture” cancels you have voice actors Quinton Flynn and Vic Mignogna were both canceled in recent years for sexual harassment/assault allegations. Some people take all of these examples as “cancel culture gone wrong” and “people get canceled without even having a chance to defend themselves!”. People will argue we can’t just take allegations as fact and run with them, and this is actually true. Technically it shouldn’t matter who, or how many, people accuse someone of doing something wrong, it doesn’t mean you should legitimately believe they did that thing right away.
However, all of the aforementioned cases are different in that their misbehaviors were all known and basically open secrets for years. Vic Micnogna and Quinton Flynn weren’t suddenly canceled and fired from all their jobs because a couple of women accused them of being creeps. The industry and their employers knew what they were doing and had been tolerating it for years. So finally, when allegations finally come out and stick thanks to cancel culture, they both get quickly shoved out the door and the industry that knowingly employed them for so long can move the rug over it and pretend it had no idea about the multiple multiple-years-spanning allegations of misconduct. When Roseanne made a Tweet about Planet of the Apes and got fired from her show, it wasn’t cancel culture beheading someone for a mild first offense. Roseanne has said tons of stupid shit privately and publicly through the years, she wasn’t canceled by a horde of disembodied “SJW” tendrils into a pit of darkness. She just finally broke the camel’s back, and cancel culture awareness is what helped cement it.
So no, cancel culture has not become some perverted tool of the bloodthirsty masses to destroy and tear down KINGZ with lone allegations. When someone gets canceled, it’s almost always because they’ve gone on record to prove how they act in the past. They just kept getting away with it because movements like MeToo didn’t exist. So in reality, no one is being pulled down by anything other than their long standing and pre-established rap sheets.
Of course, there’s always StoneToss’ take on it. Be a shitty person, get canceled, choose to ignore being canceled because UR A KING AND U DROPPED THIS. StoneToss has perfected the art of living in his own little world, so I guess if that’s what you’re going to do in the wake of being revealed as being a shitty person, StoneToss is at least a great place to go in order to learn by example.
Comic Name: Nein Lives Description: All in good fun. Mouseover: uhhh… MEOW? Mouseover: right-wing-catboys-comic.png Originally Published: 2/26/2020
What The Comic Is: An offensive gay caricature shouts “Homophobe!” at a man wearing a Nazi uniform. In the second panel, the Nazi and his very feminine trans girlfriend laugh and shrug off the insult.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: You can’t be a homophobe if you’re gay.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: So let me preface this by saying that StoneToss is being somewhat self-aware with this comic, and he’s been self-aware in the past. He’s making a joke that there are lots of self-styled Nazis who value things that the Nazi party was vehemently intolerant towards. But here’s the thing: he’s being really softball about it. StoneToss whines relentlessly about modern day socialists or communists who somehow do not live up to the past expectations of governments claiming to be based in socialism or communism. Like, he’s literally made around a dozen or more comics about it. Then he walks in here with some wimpy little ribbing like this and expects to be seen as someone who is totally BoTh SidEs (or at least ‘throws mud at everyone’, ala South Park or Family Guy any other legitimately edgy, but not harmful, humor that StoneToss tries to compare himself to).
On top of this it’s whitewashing of modern day Nazis by depicting them as people who, despite being called homophobic, are actually very gay themselves. If StoneToss were really trying to make fun of both sides, this comic would’ve been a trans woman Nazi gazing at a picture of Adolf Hitler or “The Perfect Aryan” and daydreaming about being alive at the Nazi Party’s peak, with the direct implication being that they’re foolish for believing the Nazi regime would’ve been welcoming of them. But StoneToss doesn’t do that, because he plays softball with Nazis because, well, StoneToss is deeply sympathetic to Nazis. Hmmm. Wonder why…………..periodperiod….dot…
On the other layer of “haha you cant be homophobic if your gay lol”, it’s completely possible for a homosexual or transgendered person to be self-hating and bigoted. Homophobia is not validated or excused just because a person in a homosexual relationship (or in this case a relationship with a trans woman) is homophobic. It’s also possible StoneToss is trying to make some dumbass statement that the gay person in the comic is immediately judging the Nazi as being homophobic just because they’re a Nazi, but this is so idiotically stupid it doesn’t bear going into. Wow, you can’t dress like a Nazi without being accused of being a Nazi. What a (((libtardz))) hellhole!!111 ohmg
WHEW. Sorry about the delay in getting this issue published. I’ve been rather involved with my new job, pls forgive me baby.
That’s 90 issues of this shit. Here’s looking to the last 10 before we hit 100. What an exciting and ultimately an intrinsically useless milestone! Wahoo!!!

Comic Name: Judge Not Description: So pious. Mouseover: Repent! Image Name: subjective-morality-stonetoss-political-cartoon.png Amogus: Seemingly N/A, potentially StoneToss might have attempted to make the priest’s hands in the first panel resemble amogus. Originally Published: 6/8/2021
What The Comic Is: An offensive caricature of a gay man sits on a bus, lecturing a priest that morality is a subjective concept. The priest calmly disagrees, to which the offensive caricature of a gay man shoots back that the priest is therefore a bad person.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Intolerance of intolerance is intolerant.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: We’ve been down the road plenty of times with StoneToss, because he never gets tired of desperately trying to frame tolerance as intolerance. It’s basically the only schtick he has, when you reduce anything he says concerning liberalism or Leftism. In this case he’s trying to water down the bigotry of a religious person by depicting them as a calmly voicing their own opinion (in StoneToss’ clown world, gay people hate all religion, but we’re just going to put this comic under a lens of reality and assume the priest must have, previous to the first panel, just gotten done explaining to the gay man how homosexuality is a sin). It’s fucking pathetic, and he has done this before (in comics this blog will eventually cover).
The gay man says morality is subjective. This is implied to be the gay man talking about homosexuality and how its morality is subjective to one’s religious beliefs (this in itself is a stupid strawmanning, homosexuality is not immoral and does not need to be explained as being “subjectively moral”). The priest disagrees, but it’s implied he’s obviously talking about homosexuality being immoral regardless of subjectivity. The gay man then accuses the homophobic priest of being a bad person, but is depicted as doing so in an aggressive and “aD HoMiNeM” manner. The crux of this comic relies on homophobia being an acceptable position to take (to StoneToss it is, because StoneToss is a loser and a bigot), though the reality of the situation is that homophobia is intolerance and thus makes you an objectively bad person, because you are now oppressing another’s life for no reason.
And this is where StoneToss’ fake logic resides. In some non-existent “grey area” where you’re allowed to hate other people and shouldn’t be stopped from doing so, and when you’re called a bad person or when your bigoted laws do not pass, it’s all the product of some “intolerant Left”. A place where all “””””opinions””””” (secret hint: bigotry isn’t an opinion) are equally valid, which is why you see StoneToss and his suffering-from-brain-death followers constantly whine about how “It’s JUST HIS OPINIONS!!!!”. Bigotry that promotes violence is definitely not an opinion, but people have been using “it’s just my opinion bro” to justify being wrong about shit ever since the concept of an opinion was introduced to mankind, so it makes sense that the stupidest amogus (bigots) would latch onto it so hard.
Homosexuals do not harm you or anyone else. It is not a valid or reasonable “opinion” to believe they are wrong or shouldn’t exist. Murderers and rapists harm other people, so while “I am a man who wants to have deep, body tissue-destroying hardcore 80’s coke gay anal sex with another man” is a totally perfect and valid way to live your life, “I want to murder people” is something that directly and greatly impedes upon other’s life and liberty. This is why hating gay people is homophobic, petty, wrong and immoral and why hating murders is, well, none of those things. Maybe a silly comparison, but StoneToss is more or less a man child so you really gotta spoon feed this shit.
Comic Name: Lumped Together Description: Coomunism. Mouseover: Cooomrades. Image Name: karl-marx-lumpenproletariat-comic.png Originally Published: 1/30/2020
What The Comic Is: German revolutionary and author of the 1848 pamphlet The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx, awakens in a vat of pink gas. Rubbing his head, Marx questions where he is, to which a voice responds that he has been resurrected. In the second panel it is revealed that the ones who resurrected him are a band of antifa, offensive Trans caricatures and furries, in order for Karl Marx to lead ‘the revolution’. Karl Marx, confused, asks if he is supposed to lead the revolution of “lumpenproles”.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Marx wrote poorly of the lowest class of people (called by him as lumpenproles”, ergo he would’ve hated furries and trans people.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: Wow, whata hot take, a dude born in the 1800’s would’ve thought furries were shit. Everyone is surprised by this amazing commentary that is nothing, nothing, short of literally earth shaking.
Anyways, StoneToss seems to have picked up the term “Lumpenproles” around this time, as he made a couple previous comics referencing the term. Considering “Lumpenprole” started to get picked up by far-right and other anti-Socialist groups around 2019, this isn’t surprising. We’ve talked about the term before on this blog, but to recap it quick: it’s a word coined by Marx and Friedrich Engels, who helped Marx co-author The Cummiest Manifesto. Basically it translates to English as something like “Rags/Rubbish Proletariat”, or the lowest social class. This included mostly the unemployed or those not willing to work.
So it’s true that Karl Marx might not be on board with furries and trans people. Wow, fucking shocking, I know. So mostly this comic is saying “Haha, Marx was actually not a great person!”, which might be news to some people, I guess? Marx was a racist and anti-Semite, he was just genuinely not a great guy. So yeah, it’s true, there are some people who really worship Marx as a father of Communism without knowing about his more unsavory traits. They sure are foolish, I suppose. Of course these people typically hold Marx’s views on communism and socialism in high regard despite any of those unsavory traits, so whether or not Marx would eagerly lead a revolution or not isn’t really the point.
Mostly, though, this comic is StoneToss trying to lump in everyone he doesn’t like as being “lumpenproles”. Obviously if you’re trans, a furry or don’t like fascism then obviously you’re unemployed! I mean, look at all the mask-off Nazis who lose their jobs! You can’t lose your job for being a fascist idiot if you never had one in the first place, can you?! Heheh, checkmate, Libtards. The comic’s title is a play on “lump”, as in ‘lump’enproles, which is funny because it highlights StoneToss’ idiocy really well: He has no valid arguments other than lumping together everyone he doesn’t like. It’s always beautiful when StoneToss tries to be clever but only actually sets himself up.
I wonder how many people have lost their jobs for being a furry, trans or antifa? HmmmmmmMMmmmm… Maybe the lumpenprole is the other way around these days?

Comic Name: Stumbling Block Description: You are being legally discriminated against with no end in sight. Mouseover: re-education Image Name: critical-race-theory-and-school-stonetoss-comic.png Amogus: The right-most pillar of the Affirmative Action building, the middle shadow/grime mark thing at the top of the pillar. Originally Published: 7/6/2021
What The Comic Is: A worker smashes a black labeled “Critical Race Theory” on the steps of a Roman-esque building labeled “Affirmative Action”.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Critical Race Theory is a ‘distraction’ to white people to make them forget that Affirmative Action exists.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: At the surface, this comic is StoneToss making commentary that CRT is being “destroyed” by the working white man, but in the background, Affirmative Action is still looming strong. In other words, CRT is the ‘distraction’ that allows Affirmative Action (which is far more powerful and established, with real implications) to continue standing.
But it gets messier the more you read into it. StoneToss is genuinely bad at making political comics. He can’t do it. He can make comics with a political message or commentary in them, but the idiot can’t make a one panel, label-centric ‘political comic’. He tries and fails every single time, because his views are too stupid and require too much explaining, thus he’s incapable of presenting them in any minimalist context such as a traditional political comic. It’s really tough to tell exactly what the fuck StoneToss means with this comic, or even who he’s trying to talk to.
Who is StoneToss talking to in the description? Is he talking about black people being discriminated against by Affirmative Action and CRT? Again, bigoted idiots like StoneToss love to argue that things like Welfare, Affirmative Action and CRT are all ‘actually racist’ because they somehow really harm black people. A very popular (among racists) argument against Affirmative Action is that it devalues the hard work of minorities by ‘up jumping’ their underqualified peers into grand positions such as surgeons or doctors. If you forget (or dishonestly leave out) that this is not at all how Affirmative Action works (you do not go from underqualified medical graduate to surgeon because of Affirmative Action), then this idiotic rationalization may look like a valid argument to some people. “Oh well, with Affirmative Action you’ll never be able to tell which black doctor worked hard to get there and which one got an easy ride and is a bad doctor, so it actually hurts the good black doctors!!”, but there’s a major piece missing in this seemingly ‘ultra woke’ hot take.
These racists never stop to wonder exactly why there’s not more minorities or women represented in medicine or STEM fields. To them, the answer is obvious: they believe there to be a distinct difference between the intelligence and capability of white people (sometimes, begrudgingly, they will acknowledge Asian and/or Jewish men as well) and women/other minorities. Self-awareness would tell them that this belief makes them the racist/bigot, but self-awareness isn’t usually this type of person’s strongest asset. So StoneToss and his fellow bigots attempt to repackage aid for the underprivileged as somehow being hurtful to the same underprivileged. It’s all bullshit and crocodile tears, though. They don’t give a fuck about Affirmative Action somehow hurting black people, they just don’t like equity or the idea that white people may miss out on an advantage that goes to a far more generally under-advantaged people. This is why you’ll hear them talk about “racism is when one race is valued over another” in relation to CRT or Affirmative Action. Again, however, the important missing piece is that minorities such as blacks and Latinos (and women) are coming off of hundreds of years of hard oppression that has left many of them badly disadvantaged.
It’s easy for the privileged to be blind to that disadvantage, and this in turn makes it easy for them to rationalize how that inherent disadvantage doesn’t really exist. This takes the form of ‘championing’ blacks who have made it as a doctor (“We can’t devalue this fine erm, ‘black man’, and his achievement by allowing other blacks to be doctors!!“), but the championing is fake and hollow, the black doctor is just being used as a tool to gatekeep more blacks from becoming doctors. The worst, and stupidest thing, about their rhetoric is that they actively acknowledge that there is an issue with black people or women entering into medical or technology fields, they just opt to put all the blame on the oppressed. Obviously it’s just because those demographics are lazy and naturally less inclined to knowledge, it can’t possibly be because the white man oppressed them for hundreds of years. They can satisfy their racism while at the same time completely washing their hands of the same racism of their forefathers. It’s easy to see why this rhetoric is so attractive to them, especially because it’s just so fucking stupid.
Comic Name: Friends Without Benefits Description: Chasers of a different variety. Mouseover: Check out this DANK queer in a Trump hat! Image Name: gays-2nd-amendment-comic.png Originally Published: 1/23/2020
What The Comic Is: A man in a Libertarian t-shirt holds up a sign reading that he wants gay married couples to protect their weed with guns. A pair of gay men, holding hands and wearing weed-leaf shirts, approach the Libertarian. One of the gay men leans over to a cop, pointing out the Libertarian as “the right-wing extremist”.
What StoneToss Actually Thinks: Gay people don’t want liberty, they want special treatment and they will hate anyone who wants liberty and freedom.
Why It’s Fucking Stupid: Alright, quick pop quiz. What do you call someone who wants gay marriage, legalized marijuana and second amendment rights? You could describe them as being generally pretty left wing, they just happen to be a liberal who values gun ownership. Most liberals are pretty strong on gun control, but it’s not unheard of for there to be second amendment supporters on the left. StoneToss tries desperately to frame this as some kind of issue about gun control, as if the Left is all “No True Scotsman” and you have to follow their strict world view to the letter or else you’re seen as a raging Right-wing extremist. He then links gun control directly to Libertarians to lump them into the message.
Libertarians are supposed to be all about ‘personal liberty’, that people should be able to do as they please and that the free market and society will weed all the problems out. We’ve talked extensively on this blog before about how that this is more or less just used primarily as a cover for bigots to express their bigotry and how homosexuals need special protections in order to exist in most of the USA. The issue with a pure Libertarian view point is that it allows for discrimination based on the discriminator’s “personal liberty”, which therefore impedes on the liberty of another (by not allowing them to normally exist like everyone else). Liberty for the oppressor is lack of liberty for the oppressed.
So it really doesn’t matter what you call yourself. Labels don’t matter. You can be totally for gay marriage, weed and guns and no one is going to call you a Right-wing extremist. StoneToss is once again just unhappy that he can’t call for the extermination/expulsion of homosexuals without being called a homophobic bigot.
This comic has some layers, though. In panel 2, the gay couple look at the Libertarian as a friend. They’re smiling at him. In a typical StoneToss comic, they’d be drawn with disgusted or offended looks on their face. StoneToss would never pass up an opportunity to strawman gay people to the most ridiculous extent, that is, unless he had a reason for it. The reason in this case is that StoneToss is trying to suggest gay people will dishonestly support anyone who is “pro-Liberty for all” in order to gain support for something like gay marriage, but afterwards will turn on them and label them Right-wing extremists.
So quick, another pop quiz. If your political rhetoric includes the “right and liberty” to oppress another person, what are you? I’ll even give you a hint: Oppressing intolerance is not comparable to the intolerance.
Are you finished with your pop quiz? Did you answer “StoneToss is an idiot”? Great job, you got it right.
Hello sexy boys and sexy girls. I usually keep this business to somewhere like my Twitter, but I don’t use Twitter so not many people follow me there and considering this is fairly important for the future of the blog, I thought I’d make an actual blog post just for the sake of enough people seeing it. Very recently I just started a really, really amazing new dream job. Basically I’m going to be pretty busy doing it and, at least right now, I do not know if I can stay totally on top of doing 2 StoneToss posts (of 2 comics each) a week. For right now I am going to be moving to a single weekly post, every Thursday. This could probably change in the near future as I adjust better to working at my new job (I put in a lot of hours at it because I am insane), so I would predict that the next few weeks at least will just be a single StoneToss, with the occasional Ben Garrison post to tide you over. I love u all.
