259 LGBTQ characters in cartoons that bust the myth that kids can't handle inclusion - "We're not gonna brainwash your kids", they said 10 years ago.

Surprisingly (or not), it actually goes back around to my initial statement. It’s not so much criticism, rather, it’s people engaging in internet culture and misinterpreting fiction left and right and making demands that it bend to their agenda, because cartoons are all they watch and want to look woke for it, and he’s not afraid to call them out.

I don’t think he has a hate boner for her, he’s just fed up with some people demanding the character be something she’s not intended to be. Chloe is a textbook “mean girl” (think Bonnie from Kim Possible, for example). She talks down to anyone who’s not on her family’s level of wealth/social status, and there was once an incident where she stereotyped Marinette. As with any antagonistic character, there are going to be apologists (or stans, as the kids say), who think that this character can do no wrong and deserves to be “redeemed,” even when there’s nothing in canon that points towards that making sense, at least not at the moment. Because this is the internet in the 2020s, people’s way of expressing their personal qualms with fiction is to spam the person in charge. While the best thing would be to not acknowledge the trolls at all, we’ve seen that almost nobody working in animation can stay off of social media. Some of his statements don’t always land well, but I don’t think he’s got bad intentions. It’s more a matter of neither side being able to stop talking. But I do give him props for at least trying to point out fandom stupidity.

That aside, my main point is that the show itself just comes off as a good time and doesn’t try to over complicate things. It’s just a magical girl/superhero story, with interesting lore and likeable characters, and it doesn’t try to be more than what it is, or to pander towards older viewers or the “woke“ crowd, despite having good representation in a lot of areas, so it’s definitely a breath of fresh air that only a couple of other recent animated series have pulled off. And, as mentioned in my initial statement, boy does it get flack for being chill. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but for anyone it genuinely appeals to, it’s pretty damn good.

None of these characters were either showing or stated to be bi or gay. Are they legit making stuff up now?

In the time since you posted this article, their pretentious database added a one-sentence entry on why they think this character has this sexuality. No links sourced, of course. I had to find the confirmation myself.

Sunset here was confirmed by Katrina Hadley, who worked on some of the Equestria Girls movies featuring Sunset, the first of which came out in 2013:

I bet at least half of them are Rowling retcons much like this.

Wendy, for example:

Ahhhhh, now it makes sense. It basically boils down to "PAY ATTENTION TO US, PAY ATTENTION TO US, WE'RE WOKE, WE'RE GOOD, GIVE US ATTENTION!"

Why can't cartoons just be cartoons anymore? (:_(

Your post is ultimately the biggest reasons I'm pissed off these days with the Left. There can be nothing safe, except we're a species that psychologically need coping mechanisms and escapism to handle life. This just robs us of something one could argue is essential.

Most of these characters sexuality was never shown, mentioned or mattered in their respective shows. Having it "confirmed" years later during the age of woke on twitter and tumblr by pandering hasbin writers desperate to appease their corporate overlords to the chagrin of people with actual taste who liked the shows.

Those whose sexuality was shown, mentioned or mattered in the show were either dumpster fires nobody watched or only attracted 20-30 year old shippers and fag humpers. So children were not the primary audience.

The image of a millennial teenage girl that obsesses over her Twitter and Instagram, who dyes her boycut hair every day depending on her mood and insists to be referred to her preferred pronouns of "AUTISTIC SPERG" and thinks any of her followers are her friends comes to mind.

I don't really think this will catch on, and I'm saying that because this feels like it's only online fags and stans care.

If it's more recent, it'll be in the show. Anything older, and it'll have been retconned on social media.

And because I have way too much time on my hands, I did some more digging:

This entire family of space aliens has an "Unknown" gender and orientation, as confirmed on social media.

Jazz Jennings' character is present and accounted for.

The whatchamacallit who sings about accepting yourself in Victor and Valentino is not.

This character is referred to as male on the show. Their "confirmation" is actual stereotyping.

Gay because of... Companion Material??

I've noticed that a lot of these are the gay couple, usually but not always lesbian moms, that only appears in one episode:

They also missed Mr. Simmons from Hey Arnold who was gay (one episode shows him with his boyfriend, and it was kind of obvious given his mannerisms).
Yup, I remember they referred to his boyfriend as his "friend" not unheard of in the 90s. You'd think he'd be on the list for being a positive remodel for kids, being a nice guy that always helped his students and cared about them, but I guess because it wasn't in your face about his relationship (that's the way it was in the 90s) he doesn't count. God forbid they have a gay character that's more then just his sexuality in a show.
