!! OMG, quote of the day: BATMAN creator Bob Kane spat some pretty homophobic shit, once denounced the comic’s gay fans !!


Back in the year 1967, Paul Sann wrote a book about American fads that included the theory of Batman being gay, and asked Bob Kane, Batman’s creator, to share his thoughts… It did not go well:

“Batman is the epitome of virility and manliness—just the opposite image of the fag,” Kane said.

“Wertham read homosexuality into this thing because I had a man and a boy living in a big house together — in the same bedroom — with just a butler and no female around,” Kane said.

“Even so, I suppose the homosexuals like the TV show because of those tight outfits Adam West and Burt Ward wear,” he continued. “I imagine they sit around watching them on the screen and slap each other on the knees with the sheer joy of it all.”

“But what can you do about that?” he added, explaining he hasn’t figured out a way to stop gay people from enjoying his creation. “I can’t change the characters because they weren’t homos in the first place and because you have to be crazy to fight success.”

EEEGADS BATMAN! While some of us out there can relate to coming from terrible people, we never would have guessed a character fighting for what’s right would be birthed from such a despicable human being! A product of his time, maybe, but gross nonetheless!

Check out the trailer for Natalie Portman‘s new film JACKIE where she plays Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis – OR you might say she plays Natalie Portman-playing Jessica Lange-playing-Jackie O. That would be more accurate – but REGARDLESS this looks amazing, and just give her all the Oscars now because you know white people are gonna lose their minds for this shit.

!! OMG, WATCH: Mykki Blanco performs Zoe Leonard’s 1992 poem ‘I Want A Dyke For President’ !!

The lyrics to this poem are as important today as they were 24 years ago when American artist Zoe Leonard originally released I Want A Dyke For President. Rapper Mykki Blanco, a black, gender-bending rapper who recently announced that she was HIV positive, and was also arrested in Portugal for ‘being gay’ last year, definitely would know a thing or two about being discriminated against and wanting your world leaders to walk a mile in your shoes someday… Check out DAZED‘s remarkable new video above!

!! OMG, the real ‘Feminist Bookstore’ of Portlandia fame now refuses to let them shoot there !!


In Other Words, the real feminist bookstore in which the skit is shot released a public letter from the staff last week denouncing their support for the show, citing the following reasons, among others [via ontd]:

loss of money due to shutting down the store (& neighboring businesses) for filming; Portlandia staff would trash the space & leave it a mess; contributing to the gentrification of Portland/displacement of communities of color; making light of (trans)misogyny; staff of Portlandia requested the BLACK LIVES MATTER painting removed from window, which the bookstore refused!!!

Oh snap! It’s too bad the show couldn’t find some common ground with the store or hear their concerns. Hopefully they sort it out! Check out some of their finest moments after the jump.
