* While [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2015/comic/book-6/01-to-those-whod-ground-me/appraisal/ Becky and Dina smooching. ]] is adorable on it's own, what brings it here is Joyce's reaction: Just two days ago, while accepting of Becky's sexuality, Joyce could barely deal with it. Now, while she turns away to give them privacy, she smiles at her best friend and her girlfriend making out in front of her, just happy that Becky is happy.
** The strip right after: Amber brings up that Dina's parents might not be so accepting of her sexuality.. reminding Dina [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2015/comic/book-6/01-to-those-whod-ground-me/credited/ to tell them in the first place she has a girlfriend.]] Their response is to give Dina 200 dollars to take Becky someplace nice.

* Meta example. Willis understands perfectly well how sensitive a topic [[spoiler: suicide]] is so in the strip that reveals [[spoiler: that Becky's mother died this way,]] he puts up a very long warning above the strip itself advising people triggered by this to skip it.Commentators are quite pleased with him making this pre-caution.
