    The punishment is way out of proportion to the crime. It has always annoyed me how many of my female contemporaries think castration is funny, then complain that feminists are unfairly tarred with the misandry brush.

    It’s great the way the women look so magical and powerful as they deal out unaccountable justice based on suspicion and personal insecurity. Pretty much the only thing that could top this would be a collection of famous rapists waving bowie knives and riding lightning bolts.

    Those husbands must have been very deep sleepers.

    When the quantity of castration and its celebration in media exceeds the quantity of rape and rape culture’s celebration, then you can complain about misandry and being fair and balanced.

    But until then, there’s an awful lot of castration to go before we realize equality.

      Yes, Yamara, because two wrongs make a right, because permanent and lifelong removal of the genitals is the equivalent of rape.

      I do see nothing inherently offensive about the panels though.

    One of many parts of that book that creeped me out a little. Is it really hard to get a divorce in Thailand or something?

  6. El Mariachi says:

    Castration is removal of testicles, not the penis.

    Either Boing Boing has it in for ducks and is making this stuff up, or it is part of Boing Boing’s mission to expose ducks for the scary monsters they truly are.

    i work with a lot of filipinos, they have a very similar term for punishing an lecherous husband called “feeding the swans”. i love how the asian cultures turn a horrific mutilation into a term that sounds like a day at the park.

    Wow, imagine the reaction if 100 men had cut the vulva and clitoris from their cheating wives and fed them to the ducks.

    Art like this showing the perpetrators breathing fire, and possessed of righteous fury might be seen as a little offensive to the other gender but since men are the victims here its obviously ok.
