Hey, it’s Jason!

Back when Jason was a New Creation during high school, his characterization was, crudely, “stereotypically gay,” with the caveat that I didn’t recognize this behavior as being stereotypically gay because I didn’t know what being gay was.  He just acted amazingly effeminate and overly-concerned about his appearance, for laughs.  I am not sure if having the bow tie really fits into that wheelhouse or not, but I will say that it was amazing that he could get it to work with a noncollared shirt, and for this he should be commended.

Anyway, sometime between then and this strip, I’d decided that what he really was is British, which I viewed as a recontextualization instead of an actual characterization change.
