Chip Zdarsky defends Batman's sexuality

Can't a guy just like fetish wear?

Friday nights are "me time." I like to curl up on the couch with a big bag of shelled nuts and watch Ghost Whisperer with my cat, Monster Truck. Once that's over I bundle all of my rage at how terrible that show is, put on my leather pants and PVC mask and head to a local club where I flog strangers with a variety of fun instruments. Jennifer Love Hewitt's face floats in front of me, like the type of ghost that whispers to her every Friday night, and I heed her call with another paddling. Now, my outfit may be outrageous, and my beating of grown men and women masochistic and my cat is actually a teenage boy, but I am not gay. And neither is Batman.

For more than 70 years, people have misconstrued Batman's living situation and exploits as evidence of homosexuality, the main trigger in this gay gun being Robin, Batman's youthful, plucky sidekick. But the introduction of Robin stemmed not from a deep-seated (ho ho!) desire to make Batman gay, but to create a relatable character for the boys reading these adventures. Making Robin a fellow orphan was the easiest way to go. Was Batman supposed to pull up to Robin's parents' house every night and honk his Bat-horn, signalling another night of danger? Preposterous. And it would be poor manners for the �ber-wealthy Bruce Wayne to let young Richard Grayson stay in a dingy orphanage while he sipped aged ginger ale and ate delicious candied yams in the opulence of Wayne Manor. Adopting this orphaned young man just made sense.

I think, "Putting Dick in harm's way" is my most favorite euphemism ever.

Worst comic strip. Ever!

via | worstcomicstripevar.JPG Cartoon Brew | Worst comic strip. Ever!
So when I came across a batch of old issues of My Weekly Reader I had in stashed my archives and found this comic strip - Uncle Funny Bunny and Chumpy - I felt I’d found a comics equivalent to Paddy The Pelican and Bucky and Pepito: the lamest comic strip ever created! Mesmerizingly so.
