There are only female children. Coincidence? Or are lesbians aborting the Y chromosome fetuses?
The blonde looks like Doonesbury. The wife looks like the old stereotypical Asian women tittering behind her hand.
But this cover makes me happy.
It would have made more sense if both adults wore pink robes and both looked feminine because the cover just looks like a man and a woman reading a card.
And no, women do not have to wear pink and have long hair to be women or identified as such, for fuck's sake. I am happy that Chris Ware chose to present this couple as opposed to the typical, boring, white lipsticked tropes that most media outlets limit lesbians to.
This cover speaks to diversity on several levels. It takes all kinds.
I'm with r12. Many of the rest of you are just lame.
It's kind of a cop out. Unless someone told me that it was two women, I would have thought it was a straight married couple. But, hey whatever works and yay visibility and mainstream covers, but I would have made the blonde look like a woman.

Neither. The boys are out back in the Brother Sun pen.
Key: They are both reading the mother's day card.
Lets face it, some people cant think for themselves and have to have every little thing spoon fed to them.
There are about 300 lbs missing from those frames
W&W for R15.
WOW! So "EDGY" New Yorker.
Yet you'd be terrified and disgusted by the thought of showing two gay fathers. But, ya know, they're MOMS and all so, it's cool.
feeling a little bitter, r21?
r21 gets cranky when women are in the spotlight.
R21...it's Mother's Day. Would be odd to feature men.

They may well do one for father's day, but since that's not till late June, r21 has over a month to stew in his imaginary persecution juices.
R20 is off about this (since it is Mother's day), but he's not off about straight people taking the easy out by showing how progressive they are with lesbians (but not gay men). I am leery of straight people saying they're not homophobic because they have lesbian friends. No honey, that just means you're not lesbophobic.
