A typical cartoon depiction of a Type 2 patient ✻deserving✻ diabetes because of poor lifestyle choices ..is a mutation of the old ✻mother-in-law✻ jokes of the 1960s ..it has unsympathetic overtones.
A typical cartoon depiction of ✻Type 1✻ is quite different ..it's a medicalisation ..the pancreas is the ✻victim✻ here ..the tone is more compassionate.
Such cartoons are readily searchable for art directors and editors via major ✻stock image✻ agencies ..bizarrely, I've seen these ✻funnies✻ used to lighten serious diabetes reports ..this is of-course ✻commissioned✻ artwork.
What is the ✻message✻ behind the commission and publication of a cartoon that insults diabetics?
