That's an extraordinarily tall kitchen cabinet

Kris and Bruce Jenner standing over that flock of Kardashians?
|by Mia||reply 2||05/08/2013|
The kids are terrified.

Wait a minute. Did someone specifically say that it's a lesbian couple? It looks like a white guy and an Asian chick.
|by Mia||reply 4||05/08/2013|
She looks a bit like Elizabeth Warren with the glasses.
|by Mia||reply 5||05/08/2013|
R4, it's Mother's Day.
|by Mia||reply 6||05/08/2013|
lol, they're on the "normal" size side.
Check your eyes R4.

Here's an article on the cover:

There are only female children. Coincidence? Or are lesbians aborting the Y chromosome fetuses?
|by Mia||reply 9||05/08/2013|
The blonde looks like Doonesbury. The wife looks like the old stereotypical Asian women tittering behind her hand.
But this cover makes me happy.

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 Mia||reply 11||05/08/2013|
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.
|by Mia||reply 13||05/08/2013|
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.

Neither. The boys are out back in the Brother Sun pen.
|by Mia||reply 15||05/08/2013|
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.
|by Mia||reply 21||05/09/2013|
feeling a little bitter, r21?
|by Mia||reply 22||05/09/2013|
r21 gets cranky when women are in the spotlight.
|by Mia||reply 23||05/09/2013|
R21...it's Mother's Day. Would be odd to feature men.
|by Mia||reply 24||05/09/2013|

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 Mia||reply 26||05/09/2013|
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 Mia||reply 27||05/09/2013|
r20, come back and explain yourself.
