The Right Meaning

From Manager, January 16, 2020
Man: On your shirt, it says if someone likes Prayuth, you will fuck him?….I like Prayuth!!!
Caption: Be careful about Thai people’s English understanding

[Refers to a shirt worn by some anti-Prayuth activists. It was copied from a similar shirt meant to insult Trump supporters.
The cartoonist makes a rape joke, contending that a typical Thai man, with his limited understanding of English, may not understand that the word “fuck” does not mean “copulate” in this context, but instead is meant to indicate derision and disgust.
This cartoon reflects a more establishment view that looks down on the provocative protests and actions of the Future Forward Party.]
