    You are right, of course... after I posted that I realized how stupid it was. They all have relationships. Duh Bodi.

    Now tell me that there's no reason to have a gay superhero.

    Yeah... Comics have always been about real issues facing society. They have been the vanguard of social media delving into issues that we face. Abuse. Oppression. Corruption. Psychological opinions. Disfigurement. As well as positive ways to deal with issues. Team work. Etc.

    Now He Man? That guy was gay.

    I have an idea create a new character who is gay. I have no problem with that. But please don't change the characters I grew up with.

    Here is what I have a problem with. Holywood cramming the homosexual lifestyle down our throats...no pun intended. Of the new television shows comming out this fall 11 of them have gay characters. whats up with that? Gays are only 4% of the overall population. Asians are 4.8 % of the population why are they not represented in the new shows this fall?

    Because homosexuals have been severely underrepresented in the past. Name a show earlier than the 1990s that had an openly gay character, particularly as a recurring character. Even during the 1990s, there were really no shows or movies with openly gay characters. You might be able to find a few out of millions of movies and shows from before 2000 that had a recurring openly gay character. That is why they are overly represented now, particularly while same sex marriage is such a major issue in our country. It is very likely that they will start to blend in once same sex marriage is made legal throughout the US.

    What I find hard to understand is why do we have to care at all about the sexual inclinations of our comic characters?

    I'd say, don't ask don't tell leave Donal Duck alone, lol!

    This is a non issue for me.

    As was pointed out before, relationships are a major part of comic books, particularly hero-based comic books. They provide character depth. It isn't like they are likely to just have the guy/gal come out in some press conference "I'd just like to tell the world I'm gay. Thank you." More likely, they are going to have the character start a relationship with a person of the same sex or reveal a preexisting relationship with a person of the same sex. It's possible that it could just come out as something in passing. It shouldn't be a big deal.

    Oh, and I'm willing to bet Donald Duck is safe. He is aimed toward young children and I'm pretty sure Daisy Duck was created specifically to be his girl-duck.

    According to marvel and Joe "dumbass" Biden, it's a "big ****ing deal".

    What utter idiocy. However, it will let the authors pat themselves on the back and tell themselves how awesome and modern they are. It's like when they had Superman (Truth, Justice, the American Way) renounce his American citizenship.
