I don’t like to talk out and make posts due to my anxiety, but y'all.
I am a native floridian and a child of native floridians. Irma is scary as hell.
But Florida is more secure than the Caribbean islands, we have a third of a continent to help us.
The Caribbean is being torn to shreds by Irma, and I’m gonna need y'all who can help to help them. The PM of Barbuda has said that 90% of the island has been severely damaged. Irma is only going to cause more destruction.
Please, as soon as supplies and manpower can be sent to the Caribbean, help them. Be the support these small countries need.
Because these islands are filled with people, other human beings, who deserve the chance to live and rebuild and be happy and survive.
This post is for my Tumblr fans because I know my fans on Tumble are more open minded and understanding than some of my conservative friends on facebook.
It’s about gay couples in cartoons.
Personally, I think it’s great! If it’s done right.
It all started with Korra and Asami simply holding hands as they walked into the Spirt World.
Then The Loud House made cartoon history as Clyde (Lincon’s best friend) had 2 dads. The first married gay couple in a cartoon!
Just recently, someone pointed out that in the latest episode of Star vs The Forces of Evil (Just Friends) there is a gay couple kissing at a concert. It goes by quick and you have to really look for it to catch it because ALL the couples in the audience are kissing, but it’s there.
Now to back up a bit, what I mean by “done right” is - if the cartoon doesn’t make a big deal about it. With All 3 of these couples it’s about love. A couple holding hands, a married coulple raising a son and finally a couple kissing at a concert.
They’re not shouting from the roof top, “Look at me, I’m gay!”
They are just showing you, in a cartoon for younger views, that 2 people can love one another. That’s doing it right!
For the record, I’m not gay. I have been married to the same woman for over 10 years and I have 2 wonderful kids. I believe I am being a good dad by telling my kids love is love.
I was very hesitant on making one of my characters in my Tercona story gay. I wanted to keep family friendly. However, now that I see a gay couple is becoming more acceptable and that it’s becoming more and more mainstream, I’m going to make one of them gay. Well, I wanted to from the beginning, I was just never going to say anything about it. Now I know I will, when the time is right.
So, what do you think about gay couples in kids cartoons. Is it a bad thing or a good thing?
I just saw the latest episode of The Loud House called L Is For Love. Wow…amazing and beautiful.
First off, in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, the Loud House is a new show on Nickelodeon. About a fun loving family full of 11 kids. All girls and only 1 boy, Lincoln.
This post isn’t about Lincoln. It’s about Luna Loud. The rocker of the siblings.
Now before I continue I should point out that Lincoln’s best friend Clyde has 2 dads. It’s NEVER said they are 2 gay dads, but we can all assume.
At the end of the L Is For Love episode it is revealed that Luna has a crush on a GIRL named Sam!
So it is implied that Luna is either Bi or gay. AGAIN, they never actually SAID the words, Gay…Bi…or…Lesbian. It’s just implied.
I believe that the network Nickelodeon has to just “imply” this because if Luna actually came out and said “Yea, dude…I’m gay.” (or something to that effect.) Nick could not be able to sell this show overseas to places where being gay is a crime.
I think Nick handled this beautify. And to think Nick is the network that started it all with Korra & Asami. Again…they just held hands and walked into the spirit word. It’s implied, never actually said on the show.
Finally, for those of you who don’t know me, my name is Frank. I’m a writer and a voice actor. (not a famous VA…lol) I’m writing books about a female superhero named Tercona. I hope to turn it into a cartoon someday.
Since my books are “family friendly” I have always been undecided as to include a gay character in them. What I mean is some people have told me that if they are “family friendly” there can’t be a gay character. Well, I don’t think those people have seen The Loud House.
