And oh God, the amount of lawsuits would be ridiculous.
I can totally see where you are coming from Discordant. However, kids are exposed to all sorts of things these days. Pokemon handles heterosexuality with characters like Brock, who is a total skirt chaser, so why is it innapropriate for there to be any sort of gay character? They don't have to go into direct detail. It would just be a matter-of-fact type of thing, and not any major plot point. By that logic, children should never be around a gay person because it will make them question if they are gay. If parents properly explain it in an appropriate manor for kids, I can't see the harm in it.
