The Love That Won't Shut Up

Does anyone else find this cartoon a little squicky?

Notice that the woman in the backseat knows that bringing up her sexuality makes the man in the front passenger seat uncomfortable, and yet she brings it up anyway, and does so gratuitously. Moreover, when he is obviously flustered, instead of changing the subject, she reaffirms that, by God, she will shove it in his face.

And there is no sense here that she was rude, or impolite, or anything.  No, mentioning your sexuality at every opportunity is de rigeur and only a bigot would be offended.

It's not a situation in which this came up naturally, and she is simply not hiding her sexuality.  No, she has to confront him with the fact she is gay even when there is no reason to do so. It's like saying, "Hi, I'm your friend's father. By the way, did I mention how much I love Asian porn?"

This is the nature of modern homosexuality. Brazen and assaultive.

That is all.
