It’s because of the censorship in the comics. Lynn had to use mild euphemisms, not the language teenagers boys would really use.
I refer to her as the First Bimbo rather than First Lady.
That’s a smokescreen. This is about controlling women, forcing them out of the workforce. If a man running for any office says he won’t be alone with a woman, he is saying that women should not be lieutenant governor, attorney general, mayors, state employees, etc.
Luckily for them, they don’t have to. They just get away with it, unchecked.
There’s nothing reasonable about this ‘toon. It’s not about fear of perceived impropriety nor about fear of actual impropriety; it’s about controlling women. What men like Pence and this Rethug candidate are implying when they refuse to work alone with a woman is that women should not be in the workforce. They want women to go back to being property, banished to the home.

It’s comparing apples and oranges. The NYT & Forbes were talking about global revenue; the calls for equal pay are referring to U.S. revenue. On a global scale, men’s footy generates more revenue than women’s, but in U.S. the women bring in more revenue but are paid less. The global comparison is misleading.

When guests come over & I direct them to sit on the sofa, I say, “Please have a seat on the scratching post.” They are momentarily confused until they look more closely.
