Overly protective parents got their feathers in a ruffle after morning kids cartoon show Fireman Sam showed a ‘sexually suggestive’ scene involving two male characters Before we go any further; no it wasn’t an gay actual sex scene, it just happened to be that the way the animators and directors constructed the scene it appeared extremely x-rated. Those watching the Channel 5 kids show pointed out the unintentionally hilarious scene made it appear like fireman character Elvis Cringlinton was getting ‘rear-ended’...

Doc-McStuffins

Disney cartoon series Doc McStuffins featured an interracial lesbian couple, and One Million Moms are not happy. In a first for a Disney Junior show, the most recent episode of the cartoon series featured same-sex parents. The episode, titled The Emergency Plan, was centred around teaching kids what to do in an event of an earthquake. Rather than featuring a mother and father, however, it featured two parents – voiced by Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi – trying to re-unite their...

snagglepuss

In its new Hanna-Barbera line of comics, DC is making official something fans have long believed: Snagglepuss, the beloved pink mountain lion that debuted in 1959, is gay. More specifically, he is being portrayed as a “gay southern gothic playwright.” Mark Russell, the writer for the new comics, says the move is “not much of a stretch,” and the Internet seems to mostly agree with him. https://twitter.com/EsotericCD/status/826574576998023168?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/frankiesamba/status/826617084327124992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw https://twitter.com/LucindaLunacy/status/826480992911233024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Snagglepuss was a reoccurring character in the Yogi Bear show starting in 1960s.

The Russian embassy in Britain tweeted a disturbing political cartoon on Sunday depicting the European Union member countries as ‘gay pigs’ rounded up in what appears to be Nazi-style concentration camps. https://twitter.com/RussianEmbassy/status/789903797803970560?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw The acronym PIIGS has been used by economists to refer to when EU members Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain began struggling to refinance government debt during the banking crisis that started in 2009, reports JMG.

nazi

News Corp newspaper The Australian has set the stage for a public debate on equal marriage by printing a cartoon likening gay people to Nazi stormtroopers. The Murdoch paper this week printed the shocking cartoon from controversial artist Bill Leak. It features a depiction of Nazi soldiers depicted as gay men, wearing rainbow outfits and carrying brutal weapons. The cartoon is captioned ‘Waffen-SSM’, a play on words linking ‘Same-Sex Marriage’ and the Nazi Party’s military Waffen-SS wing, which was responsible for numerous war crimes. The...
Brian Sims

Get ready for your crush on Brian Sims to go from “hey he’s pretty great” to “take me now.” Your favorite bearded Pennsylvania representative just uploaded a video to Facebook of himself singing along to Jodi Benson as Ariel in The Little Mermaid.

(Personally, we’re torn between “Colors of the Wind” from Pocahontas and “I’ll Make a Man out of You” from...
