Holy gender-bender, Batman! Have you heard the news, comic book fans? There’s a move afoot by the social justice warriors to “reboot” Captain America.
They’re not talking about giving Cap a fancy new costume or shield. Rather, the progressives want to give Captain America a new sexual orientation. They want Steve Rogers, the guy behind the Captain America alias, to come out as gay.
After all, that red-white-and-blue star-spangled patriotism worked back when Cap was throwing his mighty shield at the bad guys in World War II but today progressives want Captain America to quit the Mighty Avengers and join the Village People.
The trending Twitter campaign I speak of is dubbed “Give Captain America a Boyfriend.” As in a gay lover, not a sidekick. Here’s the pitch:
“We all grow up with role models and it should be no different for the LGBT community.”
I’m not against gay characters but why not introduce new characters that happen to be gay instead of rewriting the sexual orientation back-story for existing iconic characters?
As if the gender-bending isn’t enough, watch my video to see the extreme plot twisting the writers have to do to avoid the jihadi-elephant in the room when it comes to the new brand of foes our “re-imagined” Captain America will be taking on.
Forget Captain America. How does Sergeant Sharia grab you?
