you have 50 years of stories where we see their innermost thoughts, with absolutely no indication that they are struggling with their sexuality, then out of know where that is all pointless because someone wanted a publicity stunt.
Saying it again doesn't make this point less bullshit.
By this same logic I could state that Superman and Batman are misogynistic bastards based simply on how they treated female characters back in the 50's.
By this logic I could say that all black character are street-tough jive talkers, because that's how they talked 30 years ago.
By this logic, all characters should dress like they were drawn by Rob Liefeld, because they existed in the 90's.
By this logic I could say that all comic characters are functionally retarded, because they all used to speak like emotionally stunted monkeys.
In short, it's a stupid argument. There are plenty of good arguments for why it should never happen to certain characters, but a vague "# years of history being undone" is not one of them.
Anyway, I don't even honestly care if they out or don't out any major characters. I really don't. It's the fact that fanboys get so fucking bent out of shape that bothers me. It's like dealing with sadder more zealous Evangelicals.
