Dykes to Watch Out For

I'm thoroughly enjoying the latest Dykes to Watch Out For collection. For those who aren't familiar, this is a witty comic strip that is not at all strictly for or about dykes. My straight ex-husband loved this strip, and read each new collection cover to cover starting the moment we left the bookstore.

Last night I was happy to see that this collection includes one of my favorite strips, which happens to feature male characters. I love it primarily because it's hilarious, but also because it addresses a pet peeve of mine, which is using the term "gay" as a synonym for, as the strip puts it, "lame and stupid".
