He's an alien from another planet.

Nobody upset he was banging humans in the first place?

The facts he looks like a normal American shows the limits of people's imagination a hundred years ago.

Reminds me of the Star Trek series where all the aliens were hot girls, but they were clearly aliens. Cause they were green!

We SHOULD stifle attempts at progress that are making us lose elections allowing fascists to destroy the country.

Gayness if fine. Throwing gayness in everyone's faces and making their childhood heros gay is not strategically wise and right now we have to be thinking strategically. Will this gain or lose votes for democrats?

Our nation is on the edge of a civil war and our democracy is at risk. This is not the time to risk losing everything to make some oppressed group a little happier in a trivial way.

Their lives would be more improved by keeping the fascists out of power than by having gay comic book characters.

You don't seem too worried about swing voters being pushed to the left by the fascist cultist Trumpers.

Which is an odd perspective, shared by apparently a lot of people.

I'm not saying you're wrong. Clearly Republicans don't seem concerned.

Mostly because they've changed election rules so they're guaranteed the win in 2022 and beyond.

No. It's not the left that's ushering in fascism.

It's moderates. Too afraid to do anything.

Moderates abandoned liberals in 2016 and lost the election to Trump.

They are so worried about the votes of independent conservatives they're ready to prove they can keep liberals in check without help from Republicans.

If Democrats want to win in 2024.

Their best chance is Liz Cheney.

I don't know whether the spawn of a main DC character being bisexual is going to be a big talking point in the whole "culture war" right wing spin. Clownshack made a good list of the tried and true talking points, and to get spun up about Superman is kind of geeky.*

Captain America is black, and that was a non-issue (as far as I can tell, I don't go out seeking viewpoints of easily outraged people).

Or maybe there is something called the accumulation of evidence. And if enough evidence piles up that liberals are as nuts are republicans say, swing voters will vote for republicans.

Making superman gay certainly helps them make that case.

Hardly. So it's the replacement superman. The next gen superman.

Remaking things to recast other races, genders, sexual orientations, is almost always lame.

Make a new character, tell a new story. Remaking old ones reinforces the message that for minority groups to increase their representation, old majority groups must lose something they considered part of their identity. This increases the eye-rolling at hollywood which gets tied to liberalism or democrats. It's a win for theoretical equality but a loss for political power. Which would you rather have?

Plus it's creatively weak. It's plagiarism. Make your own thing. Make something even better.

On the one hand it's not that big of deal because almost no one takes comic book continuity seriously, since they're infamous for reboots on infinite Earths or something like that. On the other hand, it reminds people about a larger trend with television shows and movies, which many do care about. People were really irked by Ghostbusters 2016, Doctor Who 2018, and apparently what they're doing now to James Bond (which I haven't been following). Even more so because they got trolled by the producers who accused anyone who was critical of their gimmick as being sexist. Apparently this type fake wokeness has been infecting all kinds of media beyond comics. And yes, it does push people away from the political party that is more closely associated with it.

Sorry, but I seriously hate this trend in Hollywood/Media/Entertainment,
and I'm definitely in the Progressive/Liberal branch of the Democratic Party.
I watched as somebody (almost certainly gay) ruined Star Trek with this (in your face gay stuff), well
that and changing all kinds of stuff in the series, to having to watch pro-gay commercials that
I cannot even look at where gay males kiss (on my Hulu--thanks btw Hulu), to this (again, in your face)
gay rendition of Superman.

Now, I am ALL for gay rights to marriage etc. I have two gay friends that I work with
in the government. I can even stand (which for someone of my generation...(age 54) is
pretty good) seeing gays hold hands, etc... But I draw the line at watching (basically
being forced to watch) gay male kissing. Sorry, but it churns my stomach. Can't help it.
It's a visceral reaction. So I am trying to accept this 'Brave New World of Gay Rights' in
my lifetime, the best that I can.

My question to the artistic types and Hollywood types is this...

"How does rubbing a straight man's face in the fact that your gay, proud, and have arrived,
help me accept your group and your group's goals, more than just giving my generation some
time to grow more accustomed to this new reality? How does forcing me to watch (unless I look away--
which I always do) gay males kissing supposedly bring me around to your cause? I suspect that for
many straight males, it has just the opposite effect. Honestly want to hear a good opinion on this,
because I don't think there is a viable one (other than artistic expression of the oppressed for art's sake).

Yes their campaign was successful to get attention and maybe sell a couple more comics. And the cost? Driving more swing voters to the right and helping re elect trump.

Good job liberals! That's worth it right? We get a gay superman and they get to replace democracy with a fascist tyrant who will make gay marriage illegal again.

I'm not worked up over a comic book character. IDGAF about that.

I care about liberals being so eager to prove their wokeness that they end up pushing swing voters away.

Saving the country and the earth from immediate existential danger is a more pressing need than making every minority group feel heard and happy. Pursuing the latter makes the former harder to achieve.

Is fictional gay superman enough of an achievement to give up real world gay marriage for it?

No. Not until Wonder Woman is a transgender man will I be satisfied.

Preferably a Middle Eastern transgender man, with a thick beard and full chest of hair. Fully bald. Groin region like an unkept nightmare and butt cheeks that fill up the screen.

Cool and you and the other woke warriors can enjoy your progressive comic books in the bunker that is your only shelter in a land torn apart by disease, war, and climate change brought to you by the fascists your wokeness helped elect.

The problem with "wokeness" is there's no single definition.

Ask 20 people what it means and you'll get 20 different answers.

Do you want to hear the story of how Superman turned gay?

#84 | Posted by bored at 2021-10-12 07:40 PM | Reply

One day Superman was flying over Greece and looked down at a yacht in a harbor.
His super vision and hearing enabled him to see Wonder Woman naked, laying on her back, moaning and gyrating.
Superman felt embarrassed and looked away and continued flying until he had another look.
Wonder Woman was still enjoying herself, all alone on the top of the yacht far from shore.
Superman decided he should at least fly down to make sure she wasn't having a seizure.
He flew down to just above where she lay, with her eyes closed, moaning and panting.
Superman could not resist and decide to just put the tip in.

Wonder Woman opened her eyes and screamed, but not as loud as the invisible man.

Let's get back to this when the comic starts showing penetration.

It won't be canon, but allegedly, internet rule34 states that you can find anything on the internet.

"If only Democrats embraced Swastika rehabilitation. That's the winning strategy!"

Wasn't it you who several years ago made the claim that the US needs a national socialism?

Or maybe it was speaksoftly.

It was one of you wierdos.

"Yes their campaign was successful to get attention and maybe sell a couple more comics. And the cost? Driving more swing voters to the right and helping re elect trump."

Dude, this is entertainment. The whole purpose is to get attention and sell more comics. And it has appeared to have worked.

But you're being disingenuous in stating that a gay comic book is going to drive voters to Trump. The dumpster fire that is/has been the Biden administration is going to do that. Quit trying to blame it on something like a comic book.

By itself, no. But most people won't read past the headline, or they'll overhear about it from others who pick up on the anti-"straight white savior" sentiment, and it'll be a few more drops in the bucket added to whatever missteps take place closer to election time when the fake woke crowd are in full swing (with the help of hucksters on the right amplifying their message).

Dumpster fire.

Yeah the same news channels that tell you trump was a great president tell you that biden is a dumpster fire. Same liars who said russiagate was a hoax, there was no quid pro quo, and the election was stolen. No matter how many lies they tell you, you'll keep parroting them like puppet.

Biden's biggest failure right now is not prosecuting your fascist terrorist cult aggressively enough.

Mad,

I voted for Reagan and was appalled by things he did and began voting Democrat after that.

That was until Trump when I realised liberals were taking America down a path that I see as morally bankrupt.

Lack of regard for law and order, no love of this country, and most importantly were on the offensive for anything that is traditional, wholesome or good.

They defend drug use, criminals and every deviant and lazy leach who can vote promising more free stuff.

Speak is onto something.

I'm just ahead of the curve.
