My brother knew by the time he was 10-11, but he didn't come out till he turned 18 and moved to Austin. Closets suck. It's only a little better today, but not much.<br><br>Comics don't "shove" anything, they're just fairy tales for guys. <br><br>Whooooooaaa ~ pun unintended or not, I just gotta let that stand! Go one better ~ Any super hero who has to be so totally macho all the time . . . hmmmm, is he perhaps . . . COMpensating?

This might just peek my interest in comics. Kathy Kane's (aka Batwoman) ex girlfriend Renee Montoya is slapped around by Kane. She also flaunts her new squeeze (an MD) to irk Renee.<br><br><br><br>Renee has some gynormous ti[i][/i]ts. In fact, if you measure the pixels used to draw her waist and the pixels of just her right tit, the tit wins!<br><br>Ah, to be 12 again. But there is a little 12 year old in all of us males thinking of a foursome with Kathy, Renee, MD and me. Would I try to convince them not to be lesbians? Nah. Viva diversity.<br>Would I think this might harm young children? Not a chance.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

I agree with the role model aspect and teaching kids there are different ways thus tolerance. But I like my super heroes asexual because then I don't have to be grown up. It's the way I have always enjoyed this type of entertainment. Although it definitely leads to interesting situations and plot lines/devices.<br><br>oh yeah, that's going in the blog
[color:blue]Most 'kids' know who they fancy by the time they're old enough to fancy people</font color=blue> - I am talking about the kids that are Not old enough to fancy people and about those kids that are young enough to emulate their super heros while not knowing what their actions means.<br><br>Don't get me wrong - I am not against it.<br>Just not sure if it is appropriate for the younger children like between 6 and 8 ?<br><br>

Well, that sure explains a lot. When I tied that towel around my shoulders, believed it was a super cape and jumped off the garage roof, I was emulating! And you're right, I didn't know it would mean I'd scare my folks senseless and then get yelled at on top of everything else. <br><br>DAMN, those comics are dangerous! <br><br>Uh, like Sheli said, comics seemed really asexual to me when I was a kid. Not that I knew what asexual meant, but I had no problem playin' Super Man. Sheesh, looks like I was gender bender when I was a kid!<br><br>Eh ~ I'm gettin' outta this thread and into therapy.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]Silk suit, black tie, I donít need a reason why.</font color=blue>
