Brother Arthur’s doubt isn’t just him simply being an questioning authority figure. If we’ve learned anything from the last chapter, it’s that he’s an extremely understanding individual. However, as the author of this comic, I’ll be the first to admit that two siblings both being gay is fairly unlikely. It’s not impossible, I know, but the statistical likelihood is actually quite slim. From his perspective, Maria being a lesbian (especially when she’s been “going out” with a guy like Gavin for almost two years), is almost completely implausible to him.
The choice words he refers to at the end, are of course, “flaming dyke”. Technically, that’s a derogatory term for a lesbian. The irony is that in this environment, it’s frowned upon to be gay, but you still can’t go around potentially offending people who might be with that language (or offending people who have no reason to be offended by that language). Yes, it’s ridiculous, but yes, I can vouch for the realism on this account.

I gotta say, that took guts, doing what she did. It's a starting point, let's see where the path leads.
