One Million Moms, the Christian hate group, has just come out with the following (via The Escapist
"Parents may have been able to avoid a new character since it would not be one many children have grown to admire," the group wrote on its website. But now, a superhero that kids have grown up with will suddenly have the gay. "Who will they choose; Batman, Superman, Flash, Green Lantern, Plastic Man, or another one of their characters that children look up to?"
And that's not all! In an even "more shocking" twist, Marvel superhero Northstar, who came out in the mid-90s while still a member of Alpha Flight, recently married his man. "Children desire to be just like superheroes. Children mimic superhero actions and even dress up in costumes to resemble these characters as much as possible," they said. "Can you imagine little boys saying, 'I want a boyfriend or husband like X-Men?'"
"This is ridiculous! Why do adult gay men need comic superheroes as role models? They don't but do want to indoctrate [sic] impressionable young minds by placing these gay characters on pedestals in a positive light," they continued. "These companies are heavily influencing our youth by using children's superheroes to desensitize and brainwash them in thinking that a gay lifestyle choice is normal and desirable."
I was previously mostly just interested in who they would pick, I am now an active supporter of this move.
