This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
Meg is one of those running gags that is taken too far to the point that all I feel for Meg is pity. She’s basically every teenage girl but this is not a purposeful irony in Family Guy. It’s not social commentary. It’s just sad.
Also, look at Lisa’s face in the last panel. She’s visibly upset that Meg is upset. Meg, even though she is animated, doesn’t deserve this shit. No female animated character deserves to be degraded in such a manner. Why does this bother me?
Because it says a lot about the creators of this show. They’re basically saying women don’t matter.
“I got both of them from local shelters. When I got her in 2006, the staff told me she was a shepherd husky. I go to the dog park, I’m meeting people with shepherd husky mixes, and they look nothing like her. I get in my car, I’m driving, I look in the rearview mirror, I see these eyes and I’m like, I’ve got a wolf in my car. Then, when she was 10-months old, there was a shepherd breeder and trainer in the dog park, and at the end of the lesson, the trainer came up to me and asked, ‘What kind of dog is that?’ And I’m thinking, Shepherd husky. You should know, you are a breeder. She said, ‘That’s a wolf.’”
