    So you must side with their archrivals, the LCBT Community.

    I agree with Goat to Pastis to please make it stop. He’s also making Pig sound like a cannibal.

    Pastis must be glad it was Goat, and not rat that came by

    Bless your heart, you must lead a very sheltered life. More sheltered than Pig, anyway.

    If you ever stumble across the term LGBTQ, the added Q stands for questioning or queer. Now you know.

    I have to confess, every time I see those initials, I think of a BLT sandwich.

    So, we’re all just ignoring the fact that Pig is eating bacon?

    No news in Pig’s eating bacon; he’s been doing it (and loving it) for years! His sandwich looks tasty, though I do not favor greasy bacon. Is Cartoon-Boy advocating unhealthy eating?! That would make Goat’s plea even more urgent….

    Wow… According to the FBI… and they ought to know…Neither San Francisco nor Portland made it anywhere near the top ten most violent cities in their size ranges….

    And police statistics show that most of the violent crimes in areas with high LGBT populations are committed AGAINST them, not BY them.

    Meanwhile…Pig said the line about BLT’s in a very early Pearl’s strip, and it became the title of the first Pearl’s collection:

    some of the anti-LGBT rhetoric in these comments makes me want to puke- even with growing accpetance,every day in america, and most of the West, a gay, lesbian or trans person is assaulted- or murdered just for existing (especially in the case of trans)

    They have it in other countries as well. The LGBTQ Peggy mentions I first heard of from a BBC article. I realize this is a wiki link, so it must be taken with some salt, but it is world-wide:

    @bpullin just because someone is a minority (~10%), doesn’t mean they deserve to be discriminated against. From pastors/priests not allowing them to be buried in their churches to restaurants not serving them food or people yelling slurs at them…how is any of that deserved? If the bigots that hate them really only care about the sanctity of marriage (yeah, right) then how come there’s not even a fraction of the hatred that’s directed towards the LGBT community directed to adulterers (especially with it being one of the commandments, unlike gay marriage)?

    @susan sunshine. It’s just nab being nab. The next time he posts something true will probably be the first. Even on the rare occasion when he’s right (I could swear it’s happened) he still makes up phony stats or dubious personal anecdotes to support it.

    Pastis did a strip or two a very long time ago about Pig eating bacon. As I recall, in one panel Pig is holding his BLT and said something like “This is so wrong.” But he loves his BLTs.

    Can all of you political twerps please take your ongoing politics claptrap to another board like the Huffinton Post or Politico? This is a comics’ site. Humor is the key, not the usual personal attacks and usual throwing of monkey feces.

    1) This is the funniest Pastis Pun in many years. Thank you.2) I am a devoted Dodger fan & anti-SF jint to the hilt. But I would NEVER call it “Frisco”.3) Let’s face it — everyone on the planet (and also those brave souls currently in orbit on the ISS) can be pigeon-holed into some acronym category.4) Re the on-going diatribe: To paraphrase Judge Smails from Caddyshack, “The world needs political morons too.”

    Hey Stephan, if you know a joke is stupid, how about not using it? Devoting a fourth of your daily panels to “I’m aware this joke is stupid” is a waste.

    Too much influence and power? Because they demand the same rights as everyone else?

    Pig has been eating bacon since year one. “But BLTS Taste So Darn Good” was also the title of the very first Pearls book.

    This really is remarkably absurd to the point where I’m getting closer to killing this cartoon from my favorites. Won’t matter, I know….but the thematic ‘dumb’ is getting quite tiresome.
