Archie’s new gay friend: Kevin
The folks at Archie Comics are doing it again! They are deciding on introducing a new character : Kevin. And what makes the storyline unique is that Kevin is gay.
Gay. A high school student that is gay. The storyline can be endless with this new addition and is sure to sell a few more comics as it deals with homosexuality. Why gay? Why not introduce a lesbian? Or reveal that secret of Jughead’s S on his sweater? (Sodomite) Oh my, all this time and we just thought Jug was an avid woman hater, but really, he has been living in the closet for over 65 years. He wore the S to demonstrate his pain, his anguish of being in the silent minority for so long…
Of course, there are worse things in life than introducing a gay character to a comic book. Warts come to mind. Cancer is another thing that is worse. Liver is up there too.
I can’t wait to see how old Reggie Mantle will handle the new man in town. I always suspected that he had hidden tendencies. Maybe now is his time to go glam and stay glam.
