I seem to have missed Zach's announcement that he intends to represent same-gender relationships and different-gender relationships at the same percentages as they have in society. I do remember that some years back after he posted his first comic with a male-male couple he indicated he wants to increase queer representation. I wonder if op approaches all comic artists whose comics overrepresent different-gender relationships. Actually I don't wonder, I'm fairly certain the answer is no.

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.

Eggsactly!

I personally think Zach rolls dice to determine gender and skin tone of every character he makes. If it results in interracial gay couples, so be it.

ANARCHY REIGNS!

I can now hotlink to my heart's content, make an obnoxious signature, and put the Yamid Seal of Approval on everything.
Also, have you noticed how similar SMBC is to Far Side?
