    A dig at the Pirate films from Disney.

    Wow, that joke would never fly in our PC world today.

    Happy pirates?
    After all, that’s what “gay” really means; “happy.”

    I hear people on the teevee calling Sparrow a gay pirate all the time, including, I think, even Depp.

    I hope Teena means “gay” in the happy, joyous sense. This strip is no place for controversial social issues. We have Doonesbury for that. But, since the strip was published over 7 and half years ago, it’s pointless to complain about it now.

    This is what irks me about so much of what gets said on subjects like this——the casual dehumanization. Gays are not a “controversial social issue,” they are people. That fact gets very easily obscured by heated rhetoric and by an environment where people who are NOT gay somehow think they have the right to actually VOTE on whether people who are NOT themselves can do this or that.

    Human beings, not “controversial issues.” I’m not saying you meant any malice, but again——it’s very easy to casually dehumanize people when so much out there encourages doing so.

    No one has said, that gays aren’t people. Of course they are. But that doesn’t change, that it’s a controversial subject.

    I don’t know too many “gays” who enjoy being called “gays”. People may be gay but they are still people. I don’t called heterosexual people “straights”!

    It is flying now. And as for the much maligned “PC” white males still have superior position over all other peoples here. So it is hardly a level playing ground of equals yet. Peddle your “PC” blame another way.

    One can be Gay and have a gay all time too. One can be any persuasion and be of gay temper.

    Pirates of the past were quite fascinating and liberated in many ways. Women leaders! Homosexuality was okay in the ranks etc.

    “White males?”
    Why not “caucasian men?”
