Earlier today, SJWs on Twitter managed to get their demands for a gay Captain America to trend.
Here's an article:
The thing about these "let's make this super hero gay" campaigns is that 99.99 percent of everyone calling for it doesn't actually read or watch Super Hero stuff anyway. We're talking about the most neurotic people on Earth who are literally offended by everything. These are the people I met at university who would randomly tell me that they wished their own parents would die. These people merely keep pushing and pushing their bizarre agenda to the point that they manage to convince major companies that they actually represent some kind of mainstream consensus. Then that company, utterly deceived, panders to these people only to see their sales plummet. The social justice warriors don't care since they don't read comic books anyway. They read Mother Jones and complain about their therapists. (I'm not joking. I've met a large number of them.)
There are dozens of gay super heroes already, it's just that none of them are very good or as popular as the "white cisgender males" like Superman or Batman. Well, Superman reads like Super-Obama lately--which doesn't seem to be very well received-- but they're planning to kill him and replace him with the classic Superman version anyway. (In the DC universe, classic and "modern" Superman are two distinct individuals.) The obvious reason: sales are awful.
Let's face it. Teenage boys--which is what these comic books are geared to-- don't want to read about a gay Captain America or a social justice Superman, no matter how much the cultural Marxists shove this material down their throat. That's why sales of both DC and Marvel Comics have been plummeting, while their relatively unmolested (by social justice ideology) films are the only things making substantial money now.
The only positive thing to take away from this is that the in-your-face agenda pushing has served to only drive away the viewing public. Perhaps we've reached a point of saturation where all the old methods of social subversion, which have successfully made gay marriage an acceptable thing for half the country, are now starting to backfire like never before. Only time will tell for sure.
That’s a good way to kill off an iconic character.
Golden Age Green Lantern, Captain America (and presumably Bucky), Kevin Kellner.
I give up. They ALL are, which is why they are either unmarried or childless. For my children, a couple of hardbacks with samples from the ‘40s and ‘50s now represent comicbookdom for them, just like the last real World Series being in 1988 or so.

I already thought he was gay. No progress to be made antoginizing the conservatives on this issue. I imagine other conservatives think the guy is gay too. BTW libs, he’s just an actor, dimwits.
Perhaps they could make Wonder Woman transgender. (sarcasm of course....when I was growing up she was a role model for strong, independent girls)
That’s not fair to a black Captain America or a transgendered one.
Can’t see how anyone in love with Agent Carter can be ‘gay’. Although being with her would necessitate having a gay-old-time. LOL
Aren’t they all gay?
Man, %$#$@ these Millennials.
I just hope robots are good enough when I’m old so I dont have to depend on these people for anything.
There. Fixed it.
Social Justice Warriors Sodomites Want Captain America to be Gay a Sodomite

I wonder just who is reading comic books or graphic whateveryacallems nowadays. It's not like they sell them for a dime or a quarter at the drug store anymore. I wonder if more adult misfits are buying them than high school kids. The people who campaign for making more superheroes gay may not actually read the stuff, but they may not be quite as atypical of the readership as they would have been in past decades.
I looked at some numbers...in 2014, the best-selling SUPERMAN comic was issue #32, which sold 97,166 copies to rank as the 43rd-best seller of the year.
In 2015, the best SUPERMAN could do was issue #41, which ranked 310th with sales of 55,368 copies.
I want Captain America to kill the Hall of Social Justice Warriors in the next edition.
Speaking of Warriors reminds me of protest warriors which reminds me of Belly Girl. Where is Belly Girl?
Sure, Marvel, go ahead. Two words: Green Lantern. Never heard of him? Exactly.
So in just a year they lost about 40,000 sales from their previous top. It should be worse now.
