Bizarro is brought to you today by Jazz Age Pickles.
I’ve drawn today’s cartoon in the style of the old romance comic books, which is not my usual fare, as you regular Jazz Pickles know. I don’t always do cartoons with a social message like this one, but it isn’t all that unusual for me, either.
If you’ve missed the thinly-veiled message of today’s cartoon, it’s about the persistence of bigotry against homosexuals.
I’m not homosexual, or even bisexual, but neither am I narrow-minded nor do I blindly follow ancient superstitions and mythologies. If you still wonder if homosexuality is a “choice” and believe that the activity of loving another consenting adult of the same sex is a “sin,” ask yourself if your own sexual proclivities are a choice. Do we choose who or what we are sexually attracted to, or is it a natural force that comes over us like hunger, without our consent? You know the answer to that as well as I do. Did I choose to be attracted to women with thick, luscious hair covering their backs? Certainly not, mostly because they are SO damned difficult to find.
PAZZ JICKLES: Speaking of a world gone crazy, here is a vision of the future that I concocted in 1997. I’m still proud of this idea.
