Well, not exactly…
Rock Miyabi dropped us a line about the recent Minnesota State Fair, which had a contest for crop/seed art and a special division for political stands against a proposed state marriage amendment. The artist, Mark Dahlager, took second place in the “30% Dyed or Painted, Advanced Category.”
“We’ve seen Mega Man promote bicycle locks, bubble tea, and power washing before, right? So why can’t he jump and shoot his way into political art now?” asks our tipster. “I didn’t know Mario and Rock had publicly come out for each other, but apparently they are now the poster children for same-sex marriage rights.”
Quite frankly, after all the Mega Man/Bass, X/Zero, MegaMan.EXE/ProtoMan.EXE, and other such pairings this fandom has both created and endured over the years, not much surprises us on that front any more. In any case, congratulations to Mark for his win, and thanks to Rock Miyabi for the tip!
