I’ve been forced to explain homosexuality to my kids (aged 3 and 4) because their uncle is gay. This incredibly difficult and traumatic experience went as follows:
Why does Uncle Bob go everywhere with Pete?
Because they’re in love, just like Mummy and Daddy are.
Oh. Can I have a biscuit?
We’re all scarred for life. Scarred, I tell you.1
A wonderful comment on a equally wonderful article about the gay marriage issue of Archie selling out, despite boycott threats from conservative groups.
John Goldwater, The co-CEO of Archie Comics, also has a great comment:
As I’ve said before, Riverdale is a safe, welcoming place that does not judge anyone. It’s an idealized version of America that will hopefully become reality someday.2
There are so many things about the USA that I love. In fact I could definitely see myself living there. However some Americans narrow-minded views on others lifestyle choices is just frightening. Big thumbs up for Archie Comics for standing up for peoples right to love whoever they want.
