The Quest for the Next Wedge Issue

The Quest for the Next Wedge Issue

click for comic

Thanks to the Supreme Court, same-sex marriage was back in the news all week. I’ve been drawing comics about this for what seems like forever. It’s been legal here in Massachusetts for nearly a decade, and my state hasn’t fallen into the ocean or become littered with the corpses of spontaneously-divorced straight couples. The arguments against it are looking increasingly ridiculous and are on the verge of self-parody.

So I drew a cartoon about future wedge issues Republicans will try to use to fire up their base, now that virtually everyone acknowledges same-sex marriage is going to happen; either via a SCOTUS ruling, or when today’s young, tolerant Americans start voting and old homophobes die off.
