I'm noticing a trend
Is it just me, or is there a REALLY high percentage of Possum Springs that are gay/bisexual? Not that it's a bad thing, but it seems like every 2nd character (and all the main characters) are gay/bi.

That's probably why the town is dying, no population influx!

I guess it's more noticeable because there are the 4 main characters and 2 of them are gay and in a relationship with one another. Other than that I can't think of any others.

CJ, Mae (she's bi), I'm sure I've bumped into a couple others.

Again, not an issue, but it does seem odd.

Your ability to comprehend trends is a bit odd. You're basing the sexuality of the small group of main characters against the whole town. Just because Mae's circle of friends are more often bi/gay doesn't mean the town is.

Logic fail a bit tbqh fam.
Not just her immediate friends, but other randoms she runs into as well, like CJ.

Honestly it would be even more odd if there were no gay characters in the game, since believe it or not gay people actually do exist.

False dicotomy much?

There is middle ground between "there is a weirdly high percentage of gay people in this game" and "gay people actually do exist". But way to attempt to paint my comment as something it completely wasn't.

I just looked up the statistics, and of the US states, the Disctrict of Columbia has the highest percentage of LGBT people, at about 8%. That quickly falls off to 5% and under for all the other states in the USA. So, even going with the highest percentage, that's still less than 10%. I'm going to ballpark here and say that there's about 29 named characters in this game, and I can name 5 of them off the top of my head that are some sort of LGBT. That puts the average at about 18%, just going off rough numbers (I didn't actually count out the total number of LGBT people in the game, but I think my rough numbers are pretty close).

Discounting any characters I forgot about, we're still sitting at around double the percentage in the state with the HIGHEST per capita number of LGBT people, and more than triple any other state.

So, even if we assume that the game is set in Possum Springs, DC (which it isn't), then there would still be a very high concentration of LGBT people in this town.

Going back to my original point: I'm noticing a trend. Perhaps anthropomorphic animals are more likely to be gay than humans, who knows!

It's a work of fiction so literally every character could be gay and it still wouldn't be something to be confused about.
Bea is heterosexual
Uh.. did anyone miss the fact that gregg and angus say they were the only homosexuals in possum springs?

Well, based on Mae being bi and multiple 1-off characters saying that they're gay, I don't know why they would say that.

No one's confused.

That's 2 for 2 strawman arguments. Got any more?
Everyone put your torches away, it was an observation, nothing more. No need to burn the witch for wrongthink.

Ooh are you a poor innocent victim? Please tell us what you think your wrong think is. Confess your sins, foul witch!

Btw I didn't strawman you, just presented a basic counter argument you couldn't defeat and rekt you.

It's actually just simple fact.
