During my exotic phase my sophomore year of college, I dated Isabel, this Latina classmate who resembled Maggie, a Latina character in a comic I read called Love and Rockets. (Two brothers named Hernandez wrote and drew it.) Four months into the relationship, I boinked June—Isabel’s Latina roommate—several times. June didn’t even remotely resemble Hopey, Maggie’s occasional girlfriend, which disappointed me a little. Anyway, Isabel somehow found out what I’d done, and—game over, man. Three decades later, I voted for Trump, despite his views on brown people; he could understand the cheatin’ man, unlike Hillary, ha ha.
