Just what kids needs…

Another homosexual cartoon character…

DC Comics having one their popular characters come out of the closet, report says

Fox News:  Could Superman be gay?

Honchos at Superman’s comic book home, DC Comics, said this weekend that one of their most identifiable (but as of yet unnamed) straight characters will soon be coming out of the closet, according to a report.

At the Kapow Comic Convention held last weekend in London, DC co-publisher Dan DiDio said the publisher would be reintroducing a previously existing character who would now be “one of our most prominent gay characters,” the website BleedingCool.com reports.

Didio said DC’s position had shifted on the subject since he said in an interview last year that any homosexual characters would be new introductions, and that none of their existing characters’ sexual orientations would shift.

DC vice president Bob Wayne likened DC’s change in tune to President Obama’s shift on gay marriage, explaining that DC’s policy “has evolved,” the report says.

Archie Comics introduced a homosexual character, Kevin Keller, in 2010.  In Keller’s initial story line, “Isn’t It Bromantic?”, Veronica expresses interest in dating Kevin but he is uninterested. As he and Jughead bond over their mutual love of food, Kevin explains that he does not want to date Veronica because he is gay. Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater explained that including an openly gay character is a way to keep the world of Archie Comics inclusive and updated.  “It shows that Riverdale is in the 21st century.”

So when are these comic books going to “evolve” and have a character in a plural marriage?  What about a character that favors bestiality?  What about one that favors little boys?  After all, “you can choose to love whoever you love.”

Going after our kids, in every direction possible.

Beauty, Strong Man, and Liar

Pinocchio, Snow White, and Superman are out for a stroll in town one day.

As they walk, they come across a sign: “Beauty contest for the most beautiful woman In the world.”

“I am entering!” said Snow White.

After half an hour she comes out and they ask her, “Well, how’d ya do?”

“First Place!,” said Snow White.

They continue walking and see another sign: “Contest for the strongest man in the world.”

“I’m entering,” says Superman.

After half an hour, he returns and they ask him, “How did you make out?”

“First Place,” answers Superman. “Did you ever doubt?”

They continue walking when they see yet another sign: “Contest! Who is the greatest liar in the world?”

Pinocchio enters.

After half an hour he returns with tears in his eyes. 

“What happened?,” Snow White and Superman ask.

Pinocchio, crestfallen, asks: “Who the hell is Obama?”

H/t beloved fellow Joseph Fasciani!
