TOM THE DANCING BUG: Definitely-Not-Gay-Man Meets His Arch Nemesis!!


/ / / / / / /


  1. That’s pretty funny.  Might be a bit too ‘on the nose’ but what the hey, this is one of the first TTDB comics I’ve laughed at, so I’ll let it go.

  2. Funny comic, but I consider the whole ‘choice’ thing (while easily dismantled) a pointless distraction.

    We SHOULD be arguing over how wrong it is to limit peoples’ freedom to do things that cause no demonstrable harm to anyone else.

  3. Wait, something doesn’t gel. When gay bars open in cities, they rarely advertise or promote. How did Strate’s secretary know about the club’s opening? She’s obviously a straight fem… wait, is that an adam’s apple i see?

    1. Honey, you obviously haven’t visited the dozens of American gay bars that are inundated with straight girls every Friday and Saturday night. Seriously, it’s a thing now. So much of a thing that some bars have chosen to post politely-worded signs imploring their straight girl bar buddies to enjoy their visit, but PLEASE, keep the screeching to a minimum. Of course, a minority of str8 women are screechy, but damn, the ones who are (think sorority stereotypes) can really take the fun out of your party.

      Gay bars (not lesbian bars) are now very popular choices for bachelorette parties, particularly in NYC. It seems to be a trend of the last few years. Bi and str8 women friends have told me they’re tired of being hit on constantly when they just want to have drinks and party. Hey, I’m all for it. Mix it up. (cf, John Water’s interview.) But man, those str8 girls love them some gay bars. Believe it.

      Also, as a female queermo, I can confidently say that I’ve seen that secretary at my local bar. What they say is true: We’re everywhere, practicing deviancy, strapping ’em on, renting U-Hauls, assembling Ikea furniture and raising our kids. (Once we’ve outsmarted the hostile gatekeepers and bent the rules enough to adopt children from orphanages.)

      1. I’m a straight guy, but I’ve been to gay bars on multiple occasions. Everyone is high as fuck, there are *NEVER* any fights and everyone just wants to dance instead of out-cooling each other. Actually, now I think about it there was these bi American twins we met at some bar in Shinjuku’s ni-chome who were assholes, but it was probably just their inability to handle their alcohol (Their last name was “Woody”… I LOL’d).

        Once I went to a club in Sydney and the BOUNCER was rolling off his head. He had very little idea of where he was or what he was supposed to be doing. The other bouncer was lucid enough to be taking care of the one who had clearly dumped one too many es. Anyway, this comic is gold – especially how in frame 2 his left hand is, uh, “hidden” and in frame 3 he appears to be smelling said hand.

  4. … you must be an animal … load of nonsense spouted … deviant and perverted ….

    Dude, I’m not gay… but I bet you’d be such an animal in bed that you could tempt me just for the thrill.   Are you cruising me?

  5. Awww… Antinous, I wanted to see teh troll! Now all I get to see is a lot of reasonable, boring, people responding to said troll and making reasonable arguments.

    1. I don’t think it’s Antinous’ fault, but rather due to disqus’s attempt at crowdsourcing moderation.

      I’m not sure if this is still true, but I think at one point I could easily delete any comment from any active disqus discussion on BB by using five separate accounts that discqus recognizes (which I have) from five separate IP addresses (which isn’t particularly difficult for me, since I have unlimited access to more than five class C IP blocks).

      I don’t like the way threads are now shut down after a relatively brief run (the old threads stayed open for years, with often interesting results) but perhaps that’s a semi-workable response to the problem.

      1. I go through the flagged bin because there are still people who will insist on flagged everything that they disagree with. If it appears to have been flagged due to disagreement, I’ll freshen it up, which I think resets the flags to zero. Maybe. If they’re borderline trollish, gross, etc., I leave them to the will of the mob.
