Wes was a guy who made a big fuss about a joke about Jehova's Witnesses that nobody thought was objectionable, and left shortly afterwards. He was a nice guy, and I respected him, but I completely disagreed with his stance on that matter.

But if you're saying that you just don't find gay jokes funny, that's fine. On the other hand, if you're saying that you find a pun that happens to incorporate homosexuality-related terminology offensive, I'm afraid I disagree with you.

I suppose it doesn't matter at this point, but might I point out that the puns in question were all plays on words for transvestites, not homosexuals. The two words are not synonyms.

But enough serious discussion! Let's get back to praising me for my "queer eye of the beholder guy" cartoon! 8)

True, but everyone thinks they are. Speaking of which... what's the crazy misconception about transsexuals that everyone believes? I've never quite found that out, but they're a group it's considered okay to hate, so there must be one.

Quite. You, sir, win at life.

If it was a true guest strip, it would be definitely one of my favorites.

Ah, see, I didn't get that part. Mostly because of the author's own mention of gays, and the fact that I have no clue who that anime chick/guy/thing is.

... That would be Tabasa (Tessa in the US) from the obscure RPG/Fighting game Warzard for the short-lived CPS3 arcade platform, and the slightly less obscure Pocket Fighter. Dunno much about her except that she's a witch-girl

I still don't understand what his problem was. That was a frustrating discussion.
I love this post so much I'm going to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant!

I've always been a bit confused about what offended him so much, myself.

I suppose people sometimes say "gay" when they mean "LGBT" or similar.

I'm pretty sure "queen" without the "drag" can refer to non-cross-dressing homosexual men, though. If so, Saltine pulled a triple entendre: bringing up the location, Queens; bringing up homosexual men; and an ungrammatical mention of cross-dressers. "Queens" vs. "queens" vs. "drag queens". HURRAH!

Ponder: THANK YOU for drawing that. It is FABULOUS!

James: THANK YOU for analyzing my plural entendre. Queens, queens, and drag queens. Oh my!

So, was this too subtle or too dumb:
