About this comic:
I’ve often gotten the criticism that I unfairly portray straight men. But by my count only one of my comics on The Good Men Project actually singles out heterosexual behavior. But there’s this idea that you can “spot” a queer person just by looking at them, and while it’s true that some queer folk broadcast their lifestyle (just like how some wear football jerseys 24/7), many don’t.
My point is this, we have to stop immediately assuming that men (or people in general, really) are straight by default. What good does it do us? When we make these assumptions we are twice as likely to accidentally insult the people around us. Even if you knew everyone in the room is straight, you don’t know if they have family, friends, or children that identify as queer.
Sadly there are communities where it does matter whether you’re straight or not, but they’re shrinking. So get with the times and just assume people deserve to be treated equally.
