I don't like the idea of my favourite comic taking sides in a political debate. Why can't Dilbert be for everyone to enjoy rather than Scott Adams dividing his fans? The politics will still be there regardless of Dilbert's involvement, so why get involved in the first place? What's more, it's a slippery slope; if Dilbert is pro-gay now, what's the next controversial issue he'll support? I liked Dilbert as business-themed satire rather than political satire.
India became independent in 1947, and was responsible for its own legislation and judicial system from then on. In England the 1967 Sexua1 Offences Act decriminalised homosexuality. I really don't think this is down to the Brits any longer, if it ever was.
