Beetle Bailey, 9/21/04
Oh, man. First Camp Swampy gets all Queer Eyed, and now this. And I think that, despite the bad coloring job in the daily strip above, this is the same guy in both. Now, maybe I’m reading too much into this, but I think that it’s pretty clear that this soldier is gayer than a gay thing that is gay.
It would frankly be great if there were a gay character in a daily comic that isn’t Doonesbury. I’m just worried that Beetle Bailey isn’t the most sensitive venue for such an introduction. I mean, they haven’t been particularly nice in their depiction of computer nerds. Or, you know, Asians.
