That's an extraordinarily tall kitchen cabinet

by Miareply 105/08/2013

Kris and Bruce Jenner standing over that flock of Kardashians?

by Miareply 205/08/2013

The kids are terrified.

by Miareply 305/08/2013

Wait a minute. Did someone specifically say that it's a lesbian couple? It looks like a white guy and an Asian chick.

by Miareply 405/08/2013

She looks a bit like Elizabeth Warren with the glasses.

by Miareply 505/08/2013

R4, it's Mother's Day.

by Miareply 605/08/2013

lol, they're on the "normal" size side.

Check your eyes R4.

Here's an article on the cover:

by Miareply 805/08/2013

There are only female children. Coincidence? Or are lesbians aborting the Y chromosome fetuses?

by Miareply 905/08/2013

The blonde looks like Doonesbury. The wife looks like the old stereotypical Asian women tittering behind her hand.

But this cover makes me happy.

by Miareply 1005/08/2013

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.

by Miareply 1105/08/2013

Love it.

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.

It's awesome.

by Miareply 1205/08/2013

I'm with r12. Many of the rest of you are just lame.

by Miareply 1305/08/2013

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.

[quote]There are only female children. Coincidence? Or are lesbians aborting the Y chromosome fetuses?

Neither. The boys are out back in the Brother Sun pen.

by Miareply 1505/08/2013

Key: They are both reading the mother's day card.

by Miareply 1605/08/2013

Lets face it, some people cant think for themselves and have to have every little thing spoon fed to them.

by Miareply 1705/08/2013

There are about 300 lbs missing from those frames

by Miareply 1805/08/2013

W&W for R15.

by Miareply 1905/08/2013


by Miareply 2005/09/2013

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.

by Miareply 2105/09/2013

feeling a little bitter, r21?

by Miareply 2205/09/2013

r21 gets cranky when women are in the spotlight.

by Miareply 2305/09/2013's Mother's Day. Would be odd to feature men.

by Miareply 2405/09/2013

by Miareply 2505/09/2013

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.

by Miareply 2605/09/2013

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.

by Miareply 2705/09/2013

r20, come back and explain yourself.
