I’m on the road this week, so this comic’s “window decal” theme worked in my favor for producing a comic in an expedient fashion. I’m sure you’ve seen stickers like this on cars– usually on a mini-van or SUV, featuring the hetero-normative family of man, woman, and 2.5 kids. Sometimes there’s a dog, or various hobbies are represented… I think it’s just a matter of time until more unconventional ones start to show up, if they haven’t already.
Now, I’m not saying decals celebrating normality are bad, of course– I’m just a fan of variety, and weirdness. And, to be honest, I’m also a fan of a little bit of social smoke screen. I’d rather not have my car be an accurate inventory of all my family for strangers. Anyway, this is one of the many things I was thinking about during the drive to Seattle this last week.
