Reader's view: ‘Sally Forth’ sets poor example for youths
In my view, the syndicated comic strip “Sally Forth” has grown distasteful and irresponsible.
These kids — yes, kids — are playing with fire. And I don’t think this strip belongs on the News Tribune’s Comics page. Would the newspaper continue to run the strip if Hilary and Jon were to become sexually active? Or would that be “cute,” too, instead of alarming and premature?
I think the newspaper, as well as the authors of the strip, should do some serious reflecting on where all this appears to be heading. It surely sets a poor example for young readers who, if they follow Jon and Hilary’s example, might wind up with an unplanned pregnancy or STDs.
