Gayness is built into Batman. I'm not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There's just no denying it."

For those of you into speculation: So, what do you think, will the dark knight finally get to be open about his sidekick? Will Northstar get a new buddy? (I know, he's Marvel.) Or will it be some other character?

Personally, I'm not too happy that they're going to "change" a major character. I mean, it just seems like a giant publicity stunt and I'd rather a new gay character to join the ranks than "changing" an old one.

But if they really are going to go through with this, why not classic Mr. Wayne:

"Getting out of bed with Robin, Wayne says, 'Ah that was good sleep! C'mon Dick, a cold shower, a big breakfast!'"

(Would of posted the actual comic panel, but I was link-blocked ;x)
(No, I don't think he would actually be the "new gay one."
Could it be Wonder woman that comes out of the closet. I wouldn't mind them changing things up. And I really wouldn't mind Batman being the one either.
I can't really picture it but anything could happen.

When I thought which character would be gay, I immediately thought of the Flash. xD Wonder Woman is so obviously a lesbian that it goes without saying.

Anyway~

Sorry I've had a busy couple of days, but I'm back now!

Welcome Kurui! I'll add you to the list now

Lesbian Wonder Woman sounds like an interesting concept, but since comic books have always been a sort of 'boys club' type thing, I don't know how far I'd trust them not to make it trashy and go for the cheap sex angle to appease the male fanbase. I'd trust it more as an HBO show than a comic book lol

Yeah, I mean DC were the ones who made the Starfire reboot, so they're not exactly the most trustworthy in character development...

Okay quick history on Starfire: she's a character based on love, all the time. She kisses people to learn their language, and in the comics she has indiscriminate sex, but never without emotional love because she feels for/loves everyone. That's just how she is.

DC apparently didn't understand that and instead turned her into an emotionless sex doll, sleeping around for no reason and with no emotions towards the people, even forgetting who they are.



And then they of course had her posturing half the comic:

Spoiler:




For reference, old Starfire:



Sooo yeah.

Bonus shot! Two heroes from the same reboot, in the same comic, one male, one female!

Oh dear.

So essentially they turned her into a succubus, designed to lure men in - much like she lures in male readership. Yeah, DC could never be trusted with a lesbian Wonder Woman. If they make a character gay, it's gonna have to be a man.

Oh, just fyi, I was totally kidding about that lesbian Wonder Woman thing. xD

Shame about Starfire. ;; I liked her in Teen Titans.

Trusting HBO to do a better job than anyone at not exploiting something for a cheap sex angle? Andy, you have very low expectations.

I remember reading about that change to Starfire in an article where the person writing it quoted her own daughter saying she didn't like the changes.

Quote:
"Do you think the Starfire in the Teen Titans comic book is a good role model?"

"Yes, too. She's still a good guy. Pretty, but she's helping others all the time and saving people."

"What about this new Starfire?"

"No, I don't think so."

"Why not?"

"Because she's not doing anything."

@Shining Raichu: Well I we shouldn't trust comic book companies to handle any type of minority character. One of the character's son, I believe it was Green Arrow's, is mixed, but in the comics he is mostly drawn as completely white with no evidence of his mixed ethnicity.

May I join? I'm a supporter of this LGBT thing, and I hope for the best of persons of any sexuality. Hopefully school won't get in the way of being active...

Hey, HBO puts a lot of graphic sex in its productions, but it also does it right! HBO makes awesome TV.

As to the article, hopefully someone sent it in to DC. Though I have to wonder whether if they asked a 12-year-old boy the same question, he'd have the same response. And sadly, I think that's what DC was aiming for.

That seems like a very odd thing to do. The son of a superhero can't be all that important as a character, so I can't really see what is to be gained by stripping the mixed race out of him. That's just a really random thing to do.

Thanks. :D I just remembered about a LGBTS thread on Ponychan a while ago, and I visited it to check up on things (even though I'm not really a member of that one), and realized I forgot to see if you answered. " Whoops on that one. Anyway, thanks again Rai.

and:

Out of the people you've come out to, whose reaction surprised you the most? Please do tell us details. :D

Anniversary questions!!!! :D
Nope. Not in any other ones. My school doesn't even have a GSA.

Out of everyone that I've told, everyone's reaction has been about how I expected, the people whom I expected wouldn't like me stopped talking to me, and the people who I thought wouldn't care didn't care.

So... I was talking with friends yesterday and the topic of gay actors came up. My best friend who is gay (and is not a "gay best friend") said he'd be willing to watch some show he didn't want to watch once he heard that the lead actor was gay. (Sorry, I can't remember the show's name.)

I thought this was kind of weird. To me, an actor being gay or not would have no effect on whether I'd watch a show, or a movie, or listen to an album, or anything like that, but maybe I'm the weird one. How do y'all feel about this? Would you give something a chance if you found out a person was gay, or whatever would appeal to you most?

No, it wouldn't matter to me one way or the other - unless he was young and hot and would give me a chance to perve on him

Honestly I have actors that I love and I'll make sure to watch anything they have coming out, and then I get to love new actors through those projects and start to watch other things they're in, and on goes the cycle.

Also I'd be more likely to watch something with gay characters than gay actors.

Hello there ^.^

Could I be apart of the club?

I'm pan-sexual. I feel that love doesn't need gender, and is based more on emotional feelings. Attractiveness is still a factor with my love, but I'd rather have a stronger emotional relationship than a stronger sexual relationship xD '

Hey there SchwarzRozen, welcome! We don't have a whole lot of pansexuals here so it's cool to fill out the quota XD.

Squee I love Will and Grace so much! Especially when Karen pretends to be straight.

On a more serious topic, I'm really disappointed in the brony community right now. Bronies are supposed to love and tolerate everyone, not just lesbians! http://www.autostraddle.com/my-littl...-magic-138465/

Well, not a lot of people seem to know the term ^.^''

I've met a lot of people who say "I'm just bisexual", and there seems to be a debate between the two. I always like to laugh at it and say I really don't care which way I am. I like what I like, and thats really all there is too it. Bisexual, Pansexual, hell you could call it Hitlersexual and I would still have the same definition xD

You could be talking about fanfiction. In that world there is not a single straight character in any show that's ever existed.
