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!

!! OMG, quote of the day: Pope Francis urges Catholics to accept gays in new book !!

“On that occasion I said this: If a person is gay and seeks out the Lord and is willing, who am I to judge that person? I was paraphrasing by heart the Catechism of the Catholic Church where it says that these people should be treated with delicacy and not be marginalized.”

“I am glad that we are talking about ‘homosexual people’ because before all else comes the individual person, in his wholeness and dignity,” Francis says. “And people should not be defined only by their sexual tendencies: let us not forget that God loves all his creatures and we are destined to receive his infinite love.”

“I prefer that homosexuals come to confession, that they stay close to the Lord, and that we pray all together,” Francis also says, in a possible reference to the Church’s historical stance that same-sex relationships are sinful. “You can advise them to pray, show goodwill, show them the way, and accompany them along it.”

Pope Francis, in the new book, The Name of God is Mercy.
