LGBT-Friendly Marvel Fans Demand That Captain America Admit He’s Gay

I’ve long-since criticized straight women who pine away after their gay male friends.

The guy says he’s gay. That means he prefers men, not women, from a sexual standpoint.

Ladies, that means he doesn’t. want. you.

Deal with it. Then move on.

However, that criticism crosses the sexual aisle. So gay men who pine away after their straight male friends are just as worthy of derision as their straight female counterparts.

The guy says he’s straight. That means he prefers women, not men, from a sexual standpoint.

Men, that means he doesn’t. want. you.

Deal with it. Then move on.

No. Seriously. Stop whining about what you can’t have and find something that you can. There are plenty of fish in the sea, you pushy, greedy little brats.

That illogical and irritating whine for self-gratification is one of the many reasons I find the #GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend Twitter campaign so exceptionally pathetic. The character is clearly not homosexual, and demanding that he be anything but heterosexual is ludicrous.

How is Captain America not gay? Let me count the ways:

·         In Captain America: The First Avenger, he’s very obvious about being in love with Peggy Carter, who – incidentally – is a woman.
·         In Captain America: Winter Soldier, Black Widow – another female, by the way – smooches him for cover, and it’s obvious his hormones don’t object.
·         In Captain America: Civil War, he initiates his own smooch with Sharon Carter, who… wait for it… is a woman!

Yes, he has a close friendship with Bucky Barnes. But as I detailed last week, even Vanity Fair agrees – through the use of a lame little temper-tantrum – that’s there’s nothing homoerotic about it.

Anyway, since when can’t a guy have a close friendship with another guy? Where in the heterosexual code book states that straight men can only communicate with grunts, punches on the arm and chit-chat about sports statistics?

I don’t see that anywhere. And honestly, it’s incredibly close-minded to claim otherwise.
