This is only a suggestion, and a suggestion of a mixed-species relationship at that. I wanted pure lizardmen representation and you have given me this? Shame on you, shame on your cow.

How well does this comic represent people having sex with their cows?

I just ran a meta analysis combining my recollection of reading the newspaper comics for the last 50 years, and the two statistical reports earlier in this thread.

Even if Zach were to include a gratuitous gay couple in every comic for the next 50 years, gay couples would still be underrepresented in the comic realm.

BigWhoCares wrote:Ok, I was curious so I looked at comics from the last 5 months. This was counting people in relationships, or where there was a clear romantic/sexual attraction, where both were depicted in the comic.
Hetero: 10
Homo: 4
That's more than 25% of all relationships depicted as being homosexual, though this is a very small sample. One thing to note though is that all the homosexual relationships were between two males, and 3 of the 4 depicted them having sex. To me it seems that homosexual relationships receive different treatment to heterosexual relationships in this comic.


I might take it on to parse a larger amount of comics after work just for science. But I know there have been plenty of lesbians and plenty of homosexual relationships shown in a non sexual manner

SMBC is a comic. Since there are more issues (psych, not political) towards homo- than heterosexuals, it stands to reason they would show up more often in comedy. Honestly, I'd say they are underrepresented.

14.6% is overrepresenting. The actual number is prbably below 7%. And foerno is talking about normal couple situations , such as http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?id=4117

It is over-representing if you take into account the general population. If you take into account the amount of people that like this comic, the gay is probably much higher.

The over-representation that actually gets me is the amount of people depicted wanting to hook-up with nerds, when in real life they most often have to settle romancing pillows, robots, plastic figures and 2D cartoon girls.

If we were to edit out stereotypes from this thread it would be a lot shorter, I think.

There is an overepresentation of Satanist aunt with children and Otter People. Where is everybody when it's time to adress important social issues.
