!! OMG, way to tug on our heart-strings! Archie Andrews will meet his fate while saving his gay friend In ‘ARCHIE’ comic book series !!

Will Archie Andrews die today?! According to Jon Goldwater, co-Ceo of Archie Comics — YES!

The famous freckle-faced comic book icon is meeting his demise in today’s (Wednesday’s) instalment of Life with Archie when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on Kevin Keller, Archie Comics‘ first openly gay character. Andrews’ death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the series that focuses on grown-up renditions of Andrews and his Riverdale pals.

Archie Andrews will die taking a bullet for his gay friend Kevin Keller! And the subtext is laid on THICK!

“The way in which Archie dies is everything that you would expect of Archie,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics publisher and co-CEO. “He dies heroically. He dies selflessly. He dies in the manner that epitomizes not only the best of Riverdale but the best of all of us. It’s what Archie has come to represent over the past almost 75 years.”

Keller‘s character first joined Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, Jughead Jones and Reggie Mantle in the Archie Comics spin-off Veronica in 2010. He later appeared in his own solo title. In Life with Archie, Keller is a married military veteran and newly elected senator who’s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting.

Archie dies, Riverdale is reborn.”

As sad as we are about the whole dying part — we give a big YES to all of this in terms of the message they’re attempting to send. We think it’s great that not only will the comic tackle gun-control issues (which obviously needs to be heavily addressed at this particular moment in time in the US) but also the camaraderie and strong gay-straight alliance between the friends.

“We wanted to do something that was impactful that would really resonate with the world and bring home just how important Archie is to everyone,” said Goldwater. “That’s how we came up with the story line of saving Kevin. He could have saved Betty. He could have saved Veronica. We get that, but metaphorically, by saving Kevin, a new Riverdale is born.”

RIP Archie!

!! OMG, the civil-rights battle of our time: Nintendo bans same-sex relationships in new life simulator ‘Tomodachi Life’ !!

When I was a kid, all the future-gays at my school carried around little Tamagotchis. It was basically a digital, pink egg on a tiny keychain with a little bird inside who’s shit you’d have to clean up and who whined all day… sounds pretty gay to me! Well, here in 2014, Nintendo decided to play dumb and say that in their new life-sim game ‘Tomodachi Life’ — that gays just don’t exist!
Their reasoning? They’re not trying to make a statement here:

“Nintendo never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of Tomodachi Life,” Nintendo of America Inc. said in a statement. “The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternate world rather than a real-life simulation. We hope that all of our fans will see that Tomodachi Life was intended to be a whimsical and quirky game, and that we were absolutely not trying to provide social commentary.”

Right! Social commentary… Tomodachi‘s slogan is “Your friends, your drama, your life.” — ERRRM how is there meant to be any DRAMA without the gays around? Please, inform me.
One player, Tye Marini, a gay 23-year-old Nintendo fan from Mesa, Arizona, is pissed about the exclusion of gays of his gaming experience, and launched a campaign last month urging Nintendo Co. and Nintendo America Inc. to add same-sex relationship options to their games in English.

The game was originally released in Japan last year and features a cast of Mii characters – Nintendo’s personalized avatars of real players – living on a virtual island. Gamers can do things like shop, visit an amusement park, play games, go on dates and encounter celebrities like Christina Aguilera and Shaquille O’Neal. “Tomodachi” means “friend” in Japanese

HOLD THE PHONE — so you can want to meet Christina Augilera , in person, and somehow NOT BE A GAY!? This is some weird Twilight Zone-esque shit that DOES NOT COMPUTE! Get it together, Nintendo!

“I want to be able to marry my real-life fiance’s Mii, but I can’t do that,” Marini said in a video posted online that attracted the attention of gaming blogs and online forums this week. “My only options are to marry some female Mii, to change the gender of either my Mii or my fiance’s Mii or to completely avoid marriage altogether and miss out on the exclusive content that comes with it.”

I know, baby. I know. Someday soon…
