Marvel Comics has 14 gay/bisexual characters DC has four
DC comics are all minors character the biggest being Batwoman. DC announced that one of their Iconic characters would be gay, that character being… Earth 2 Allan Scott Green Lantern. Raise your hand if you have heard of him?
When you say Iconic DC people think of Superman, Batman, Flash, Wonder Woman. How about one of the main stream Green Lantern. John Steward, Hal Jordon, even Guy Gardener.
In the words of Leonard from Big Bang to Sheldon “Way to step outside the box and push firmly against it”
Also like to note that neither companies have any transgender characters.
Oh, the ramblings of the uninformed.
First, your numbers are wrong. If this was simply a numbers game then you’ve already shown yourself to be an idiot.
Second, it’s Green Lantern. It’s the original Green Lantern. A character that was created 72 years ago. To those who don’t know the comics they’ll hear a Green Lantern is gay. To those who do know the comics (clearly not yourself) then they’ll know that the original Green Lantern is gay. [If, in fact, that is the character that is going to be revealed as gay.]
If you’re going to contribute to the conversation, then at least start with some accurate information. Know your topic and stop making an ass of yourself.
House GOP triples budget to fight same-sex marriage
- $1.5 million in funding to prevent gays from marrying source
» Don’t forget, this is taxpayer money, allocated by House Republicans to their legal counsel to defend DOMA in court. It was originally capped at $500,000, but that limit has since been tripled.
I’m reblogging this because this is an utter joke. A cruel, sick, twisted joke.
I was in Bojangles, which is a fast food restaurant in the South, last night. I overheard a table over from me having this conversation. Keep in mind, everybody was well over 60 and had Southern accents.
Elder Lady: Ya know, Marie doesn’t exactly look like a boy, but Joyce says that’s what she is now. Well, I guess I shouldn’t call her she, I shouldn’t even call her Marie. She *chuckle* I mean he goes by Matt now.
Elder Gentleman: That ain’t right. Joyce needs to teach that girl that that ain’t right. Don’t they go to church?
Elder Lady: Roy, you listen to me. That child is finally happy. Do you remember the last time you saw h-him really happy? Isn’t that’s all that’s important? Joyce raised her a Christian and that’s all that counts. Every child is beautiful in God’s eyes. It’s time you accepted that.
Elder Gentleman: Well damn.
Elder Lady: Now you better be nice to that child, I can’t imagine how hard it must be.
After about 20 seconds silence,
Elder Gentleman: I guess I could take her fishin’ sometime if she’s gonna insist on being a boy now.
Elder Lady: That’s him, Roy.
Then the woman smacked him on the side of the head and the whole table laughed. My town is small and full of “bible-thumpers.” Hearing this gave me hope that people are finally starting to be more accepting here, and that hopefully people won’t have to hide anymore.

I love badass old people. Also, happy to see examples that people from the South are not 100% idiots, because I know there are lots of really awesome folks down there.
This made me smile.
