Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic by Alison Bechdel

Fun House: A Legislative Tragifcomic

A couple weeks back, I wrote a post for Forever Young Adult about the Fun Home controversy at the College of Charleston. In it, I illustrated some legislative transcripts from my home state, depicting a very few of the many appalling statements College of Charleston Trustees made while up for (re)appointment to the Board. If you haven’t already seen it, I would strongly encourage you to read my whole post. Not only will this gratify my own vanity, but it’s also a horrifying look into South Carolina politics. Plus, Fun Home is one of my favorite books, so EVERYONE SHOULD GO BUY A COPY, NOW.

Anyway, someone in the comments asked if I could compile a single version of all the different comics, which I have done:

In which Representative Bill Whitmire, Joseph F. Thompson, R. Scott Woods, Henrietta U. Golding, Donald Belk, and Daniel Ravenel parade their ignorance and bigotry across public record.
As a special bonus, here is my favorite quote that didn’t make the cut, presented without comment:
“I hire them to come and do a job and do it well, but at the end of the day — and I have about 450 employees. On any given day, probably 425 of them can do my job better than I can do it myself.”
Scott Woods, President & CEO
South Carolina Federal Credit Union
