Is Heathcliff a Homophobe?

Queerty reader Troy Robinson brought to our attention Wednesday’s edition of popular cat comic, Heathcliff. For those who’ve never heard of Heathcliff, he’s like Garfield sans the lasagna. Troy pointed out that in the panel, Heathcliff is in the penalty box of a hockey game and, via picture balloon, is calling the ref a fairy. Troy asks us, “Am I being oversensitive? Am I reading too much into this? Or is Heathcliff really calling the ref a “faggot”?”

What do you think? We’re still getting over the fact that Heathcliff is still around. Full panel after the jump.
