I was going to ignore this story until it became National news.
My first reaction was, So what. A gay character. Big deal. I was more surprised about the existence of new Archie comics since I hadn't read one since somewhere around 1972. It's just not my thing.
I am a little surprised at the, If-you-don't-like-it-you-can-leave attitude of the comic's producers though. This is the accept-homosexuality-or-else/accept-homosexuality-or-leave attitude that inspired my creation of the word "heteroseparatist." Story here.
