One of the best gay angles that never was: Razor Ramon vs Golddust.
Not saying it's age-appropriate to a show like this for 4-8. Way more of a 15+ angle.
But it unfortunately never happened. I can't believe no one has tried to make their own version of the story since.
It would have been something truly innovative about freedom and capitalism and it wouldn't have even involved any sex.
WWE is lame and #PG now. I'm not really here for the "safe" or "good guy" gay characters.
I want a really annoying cookiemonstery gay coward vengeful heel character ~
And for that there needs to be certain verbage used/allowed in promos on both ends that wouldn't be considered ~politicallycorrect even though wrestling is scripted and a show sooo000ooo yah...
That's where we're at in life right now. Censorship for political correctness.
To the topic at hand, I've already commented but I am too lazy to read past the 2nd or 3rd page sooo if this has already been mentioned, then whatever. Basically, if cartoons had such like an intense and psychological effect on children, then I'd be like shooting and blowing everything up because lord knows I spent a lot of time watching #looneytunes as a kid

Most underrated entrance theme?
I am not even joking. I was watching old wrestling clips and just like realizing/taking in how iconic Gangrel's entrance and theme music were. The lighting, the flames and the actual song was creepy but I was lowkey #hereforit xclick to expand

Most shows have one or two gay people, as do most lives. People only care about this if they don't like gay people.
Here's how a conversation with a toddler seeing this goes (if they're confused at all).
"Why is that boy marrying a boy?"
"Most boys like to marry girls. And most girls like to marry boys. But some boys like to marry other boys and some girls like to marry other girls."
It will only be a problem for people who can't say that because they don't accept the existence of gay people and their right to get married. Toddlers won't have a problem with it. They won't _turn_ gay, but if they happen to be gay, they can feel better about who they are if it's more represented and respected.
And that, my friends, is the "gay agenda". Encouraging self-acceptance of how people are born. I'm all for it.
"Why does daddy have his hands down another daddy's pants?" A question no parent wants to be asked.
Most gay people I've met want to be treated fairly and don't care if they have their own TV programs or not.
I didn't watch this episode of Arthur, but I'm pretty sure they didn't follow them to the honeymoon suite. @Tiziani please confirm.
Their "own" TV programs? This is just two characters on an otherwise straight show, right?click to expand

I watched the episode earlier and the storyline works whether he's gay or straight.
So I dunno if you want to see that as token homosexuality in a storyline or just a minor detail that's upsetting people.
However the episode was age-appropriate. The topic wasn't sexuality, it was about their teacher having a personal life and how they worry it'd affect them at school if he married the wrong person.
I bet 90% of the people complaining haven't even seen the show in a decade +click to expand

Are you lot familiar with the kid television show Arthur? It's been on air for 22 years. This is a show i've grown up with.
Mr. Ratburn is getting married! To his boo thing Mr.... something idk
But, you read that right! The writers of Arthur have decided to introduce same sex coupling to the young impressionable minds of their viewer.
Honestly guys, PC culture aside...let's get real. How does this make us feel? This is a safe space for discussion, and i want to encourage all opinions.
I personally have absolutely NO issue with same sex anything. LGBTQ rights FTW. Who am I to contribute to the oppression of any minority group not represented, spoken for, or protected?
However, I do find this kind of exposure so early on to be a little unnecessary, because (while i do think it's important to be informed and introduced to the many differences that come with being human) I personally feel like it has an alternative effect on children. It kind of takes sexuality from a lifestlye to a trend, popularizes the "idea" which can encourage all to follow suit for the sake of being "cool"
I think at such a young age, the child's parent should have an active hand in making their children comfortable with who they are, not pop culture/media. I also think it discourages a child being child...why would children need to be educated on such loaded topics so soon? (avg. viewer demographics ages 4-8) I think it all just gets pretty sloppy.
I don't know.. I know it's a sensitive topic but what do you guys think?
Would you feel differently if they showed an opposite sex marriage on the kids show?
The point of life is to procreate (2 men and 2 women can't procreate without SCIENCE), why does a small % of the population, get to tell the rest of the population that they need visibility 50% of the time, or even more.
This is a hijacking of society and human existence
children can learn diversity from their parents, but they don't need to be confused about their role on this earth at a young age, they need to know that their main point of existence is to continue the generations not through a test tube but sex with one another - thats why the concept of a straight marriage is important to learn early on
By your logic any minority group doesn’t deserve representation in our culture because they are not part of the majority.
I know you don’t feel that way when it comes to your people tho...
We're not a minority group, the straight population outranks the gay population, 10 to 1, the gay population should be represented, as every population should, I believe in DIVERSITY
but why the treetruk are they represented in kids tv shows, in all netflix shows, in all movies, etc etc etc
I see more Gays than straight Mexicans or Asians on TV
We don't even have straight couple interracial movies/shows.....we barely have that
we're talking about being over represented at this point
Your Netflix watch history is preference based. So what you see is what you chose. It makes for compelling storytelling.
If you really believe in diversity you’d want it represented. You can’t learn diversity from your parents. That’s laughable. They show you one perspective, theirs. To know different you have to be exposed to different.
Personally I don’t see it as having too much of one thing. If anything we are a culture over saturated with media. You pick and choose your poison at this point.
right now my netflix is asian shows/movies
they also tackle homosexuality and I lol so hard! But it's not like in your face , used a million times for political statement, it's just like a preference
Depends on what you call 'in your face', and political statement vs preference. I think this is all up to interpretation and perception.
Being gay irl is more than just a romance story or the cliche stereotypical image of gay that has been prevalent. We should be able to choose to see every story thats being told.
Plus I don't see this being an issue worthy getting outraged over. Every parent out there has parental control of tv settings and what their kid has access to. If your homophobic than block the show from your kids, simple. No one is forcing you to have your kids watch this.
I rarely see Black love between a man and a woman in movies or tv shows, but I seen plenty of Black gay men -
The Carmichael Show
A Different World
The Cosby Show
The Parent 'Hood
The Wayans Bros
My Wife & Kins
The Bernie Mac Show
You were saying??click to expand

There are already kids growing up in and around families with gay/lesbian parents. They are going to need shows that reflect real life for them, for self-esteem and self-acceptance.
So create a cartoon with a gay couple. Why the need to infringe on every kid show.
Although Barney was gay, everyone knew that.
the teletubbies were massively gay, everyone used to talk about that when growing up. The purple one ...click to expand

None of you told me Guardians of the Galaxy was this good.
Rocket is the most watchable in the entire MCU.
wait until you see the second episode.
That movie made me remember how it is to get out of the theater more excited than when I went in. A feeling I had not known since forever (Terminator 2)click to expand

Only two, the others were more likely to order takeout. Which makes them bad girls according to DXP definition.
Did they have good taste in takeout?click to expand
