Conservatives Deeply Concerned By Gay Comic Book Character’s Impending Marriage
It looks like Glenn Beck should have saved his ire for the Archie comics rather than losing it over the new biracial, gay Spider-Man (particularly because Miles Morales is heterosexual). It was announced today that Archie’s friend Kevin Keller will get married to a man later this year. Conservatives are extremely upset because if there’s one thing that influences today’s kids, it’s Archie comics.
Like the new Spider-Man, Kevin exists in an alternate universe, which features stories about the possible future of Archie and company. He was introduced last year, and according to a press release, “Kevin followed in his father’s footsteps and is returning to Riverdale as a war hero, but that’s not all – It’s Kevin’s wedding day!”
Of course, unhinged homophobes are vehemently opposed to the idea of a gay war hero having the same rights as other heterosexual cartoon Americans.
