And homophobes everywhere are all up in arms as if this is news of pending Armageddon.
Jon Goldwater, co-CEO of Archie Comics, says it’s “about keeping the world of Archie Comics current and inclusive.”
But the homophobes, as usual, see conspiracies, and they’re not sure what it means — political correctness gone “too far,” or the standard indoctrination into the “homosexual agenda” (whatever that’s supposed to be), or that the publishers are trying to be “hip” — as if it’s, like, the late 1970s.
Well, here’s the scoop.
It’s not PC BS, nor is it indoctrination, or even an attempt to be “hip.”
It’s called progress, folks.
In the modern world — as opposed to paradise never was — we acknowledge that some people are gay and that they are as much a part of our society and culture as anyone else.
So, either live in these times, or get left behind — ’cause there’s no goin’ back to the bad old days when people who were not straight, white, Christian and male, were considered second-class citizens.
(Yes, equality can be a bitch to those who believe themselves superior!)
