His name is Mitch, he is a high-achieving jock-type and he appears in the up-coming movie ParaNorman, a zombie movie for kids. But you only find out he’s gay right at the very end (hope we’re not spoiling this for you) when a girl asks him out and he asks if he can bring his boyfriend.
As you can imagine, Americans of a certain persuasion are up in arms, bingo wings flapping in the breeze. ‘You knew it was only a matter of time before the gay community, which has successfully integrated gay characters into every possible form of entertainment for adults, targeted children,’ said one website written by retards for retards (we won’t give them the oxygen of publicity here). ‘Targeted’ mind. ‘Targeted’.
On the fact that you don’t find out that he’s a gay until the end, the site rails, ‘It’s a time-honored technique of the gay community to hide the fact that a character is gay until the audience has developed a real affinity for him/her, then catch the audience off-guard by divulging that the character is gay.’
They’re wily, those gays. You have to watch them. Or beat them, obviously.
Meet the first gay character in an animated movie for kids! Some people don't like him.,
