It's kinda sad people still use "you're gay" as a diss. How even is that a diss?

Since it doesn't matter to the story I'll just tell you right now Jupiter's just like Otto: asexual (duh!) and romantically interested in women.

All this talk of doughnuts makes me sad I'm on a diet. ;-;

I think people use "you're gay" as a diss the same way people still use "spazz" or "spastic" as a diss. http://jupiter.smackjeeves.com/comics/2031034/chapter03-pg16/ Sorry, couldn't resist. :/

@Oly-RRR: Haha, I didn't mean it in the pathological sense of course. Just the dictionary meaning of an awkward person.

@Zimeta08: But this is exactly what I mean! We don't have to like usage of words in a way deviated from their non-derogatory meaning but we also have to be precise. I'm pretty sure most people saying "that's gay" in conversations have nothing against homosexuals same as you have nothing against people with cerebral palsy. :D

For the record, I wouldn't pick you up on "spazz" if it wasn't for your comment on this page - no, you can't say something is not okay but the other similar word is okay simply because it's in the dictionary -

Donuts are quite the prize to be had it seems XD

Also, minor typo in the second last panel! "I'm going 'to' need a partner"
