That DC Comics went down the road of political correctness announcing the Green Lantern was actually same-sex attracted is no surprise. Though I wonder if homosexual activists will be offended they got only a B-list superhero? When will we get the Lesbian, Transgendered, and Questioning superheroes?
Though this slippery slope actually occurred quite awhile ago when we started allowing aliens to date our women. Yet there was no outrage at this when DC Comics first did this and made aliens dating our women mainstream. I am of course referring to Superman who certainly was an alien and even if humanoid had no business dating our women.
Putting on my speculative theology thinking cap it seems to me that since Superman obviously had non-human DNA he would not be able to successfully reproduce and thus would be incapable of marriage. Thus by nature he was incapable of marriage and had no business dating human women. Same-sex marriage has the same defect of alien-human marriage in that it not marriage at all. Though some might think it fine to compromise with alien-human unions as long as they don’t call it marriage, though I would not. There was another slippery slope when DC Comics also created a metahuman clone of Superman named Superboy. Though I shouldn’t just pick on Superman since Supergirl also dated humans. So should we be surprised that DC Comics who gave us cloning and human-alien romantic attraction would give us also the same-sex attracted Green Lantern?
Now of course this post is mostly tongue-in-cheek but of course our acceptance of Superman gave us Captain Kirk and his lusts for green-tinged women in bikinis.
