“Gayness Is Built Into Batman” (DC comics writer interviewed)
Bleeding Cool News ^ | Written on April 26, 2012 | by Rich Johnston

Posted on 04/26/2012 12:49:33 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

The new issue [of Playboy] features an interview with [current Batman comics writer] Grant Morrison, talking superheroes.

This is the kind of thing he says…

"Gayness is built into Batman. I’m not using gay in the pejorative sense, but Batman is very, very gay. There’s just no denying it. Obviously as a fictional character he’s intended to be heterosexual, but the basis of the whole concept is utterly gay. I think that’s why people like it. All these women fancy him and they all wear fetish clothes and jump around rooftops to get to him. He doesn’t care—he’s more interested in hanging out with the old guy and the kid."

Ironic. Fifty or sixty years ago, DC comics was almost shut down because of charges like this and now their star writer is bragging about how "Gayness" is built into their biggest character.

The homosexual agenda continues...

Everything must be gayed.

I just reread Haldeman's "Forever War". The part about the whole human race becoming homosexual no longer sounds quite so silly.

They also made a character in Archie gay.

It’s completely disgusting.

The time between a famous person being introduced to the public, and the “guess what? They’re gay! Whouda thunk it!!” announcement is getting shorter and shorter.

The costumes of most superheroes are pretty damned "Flamboyant"

This is why I like these types of cartoon heroes:

This writer probably has only seen Joel Schumucher’s direction of the two worst Batman movies made: Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.

Now, they were gay!

Right...it's not the whole 'saw my parents gunned down by a thieving societal reject and swore an oath on their graves to fight to prevent this happening to others by scaring the bleep out of criminal scum' deal. It turns out he's just gay. Give me a break!

Grant Morrison has written some decent stuff (Animal Man, JLA). But for the most part he is defined by one word: overrated.

Is Batman’s built in gayness the reason one never sees Robin sitting down?

Morrison has been writing Batman comic books on and off for over twenty years, long before Schumacher's movies were produced.

Now that homosexuality is PC, all formerly hetero historical figures must be made gay. First Abe Lincoln, now Batman.

Fantastic book.
The author wrote it as a counterpoint to “Starship Troopers” and did an excellent job. I wonder what Heinlein thought of it.

“this new writer is obviously ‘just fabulous’”
*

I’ve read Grant Morrison’s stories since the early 2000’s so he’s NOT “new”, as he developed some good series such as Blackest Night with Green Lantern. The good part here is that DC and Marvel are down in sales for the past 5 years as the scans are easily available over the web and have been downloaded so almost no one buys the comics anymore. I just read mine over my girlfriend’s KIndle..

He is “Kain Blueriver” from the series Lost Universe. He is kinda like Gourry from Slayers but a LOT smarter :)

Lost Universe was written by the same writer who wrote the Slayers.

I recommend it if you like Science Fiction series.

I just did a google on "batman gay" and there are hundreds of original old comic book slides of the Batman and Robin characters from the 50 and 60's and there was a very strong gay undertone even back then...way beyond it being just innocent talk.

I’ve actually read quite a bit of Batman.

He’s got a thing for the chicks in black leather. Knocked up Ras Al Ghul’s daughter. Off-and-on with Catwoman ... controversy in one recent issue when they had sex in the comic book.

“Gay” may be in Morrison’s interpretation ... though I never gathered that. Its certainly not in Bob Kane’s, or Frank Miller’s, or Scott Snyder’s, or Jeph Loeb’s.

Pretty sure Grant Morrison is a gay guy.

Gayness is so "built into" modern culture that people nowadays see it everywhere.

Things from 1930s culture that certainly didn't appear homosexual to people at the time -- if they even had concepts of "gay" or "homosexual" -- get reinterpreted by our contemporaries and turned into things they weren't. Start with the sculptures at Rockefeller Center and the New York World's fair and move on from there.

But 60s Adam West/Burt Ward Batman and Robin were so "campy" that it's hard not to find a gay subtext in their shows. Maybe West always seemed to be out of breath because he was always aroused.

CBS did a Batman (Adam West, Burt Ward) reunion some years ago. Burt Ward was sort of narrating and said as much. It was actually kind of nostalgic. I always had a thing for Julie Newmar. Anyway, if you want to laugh (or be shocked), check out superdickery.com . This gay thing with our superheroes has been going on for 70+ years.

What is the psychological purpose behind Batman having/needing/recruiting a “Robin” - as he has had several?

Just as Bruce Wayne (Batman) will not use a gun - he would NEVER do anything to harm a child that age.

What is “that age”? About the age that Bruce was when he saw his parents gunned down.

So why does he want to see a child the same age as he was taking on armed men and beating them?

To torture himself that he could have/should have done SOMETHING - even as a young boy - to prevent his parents being killed.

He wants to prove that a “Boy Wonder” could take on and win against an armed man. To torture himself that he did nothing.

If anyone has a better take on the subject than this I have yet to hear it.

Ironically I find that a lot of young people who are into anime may not overtly call themselves conservatives but they beleive in a lot of the principles of conservatism and liberatianism. A lot of them eventually become conservatives or at the very least non-liberals.

I think it has to do with a LOT of animes NOT doing the 80’s-90’s cartoon morality that stresses the group think and “play nice and share with everyone” mentality, but Anime instead stresses individualism or the “romantic ronin samurai ideal” which is something completely different than the socialist brainwashing they get from the Hollyweird media.

I mean the first Bleach Arc was all about Ichigo going in challenging the system and essentially exposing the brainwashing Aizen did to the rest of Sopul Society. Even if Ichigo didn’t know that Aizen was behind it he knew it was WRONG and worked to FIGHT it.

A lot of Anime series use Heroes who are downright Awesome in terms of living embodiments of “Absolute Morality”.
