    A nice way to shut somebody up.

    Did he know he was a “man’s man” yet or are you only using “gay” as a disparagement to the “agenda” ?

    @ gimmickgenius: Never figured out what that whole “gay agenda” was. Do you mean like not getting fired for being gay? Or being allowed to marry?

    Don’t you just hate it, when people “bully” the country, just so they can have the same rights as everyone else?

    @gimmickgenius

    In what way does anything he said in this strip represent a “gay agenda”?

    Quite! Must be that pesky equality thing.

    I thought there were more references to Vietnam back then, but we may hear about that soon. The draft was a big protest motivator.

    The revolutionaries are now the establishment, and the Tea Partiers are the new anarchists.

    I love these old Doonesburys so much.

    I am shocked, shocked that no-one has yet said anything about Mark’s vowing “to make this country great again.” Even un-caffeinated, I can think of about 100 different things I expected to see here as a result. Get on the stick, people! That line, coming from him, should have sparked a huge flame war by now. I demand my entertainment!

    …or, another way of putting it: You people are really reaching for some way to imprint your own politics onto the strip by using the fact that, years later, Mark turns out to be gay, even though it has no apparent relevance to today’s strip (and, realistically, GT had not yet even considered whether Mark might be gay by the time he wrote this strip).

    I’m enjoying these retro-strips of Doonesbury. Wouldn’t it be fun to alternate? We can enjoy the characters then and now … this would would be perfect for a then and now perspective.
