Thereʹs virulent homophobia in our culture. Cartoonist deal with exaggerated caricatures. Comics are seen as a kiddie medium, and there is a little history of dealing with taboo in comic strips. For example, in daily strips you used to not be able to show snakes. Why? Hmmm. Let me think. Snakes: phallic. And so on. Things are loosening up a little bit. As far as I know, Akbar and Jeff (from 'Life in Hellʹ) are the only gay couple in comics. They may dance with a woman or two. But I donʹt think they are going to shape up.”
