as a kid,
i watched cartoons to basically watch cartoons.
cartoon characters didn’t have sexuality to me.
they just did goofy shit that entertained me.
it was really above the surface for me unless it was part of the plot.
i’ll be the first to raise my hand and say i never assumed betty deville,
who is phil and lil’s mom on “rugrats“,
i thought she was just an aggressive woman.
sidebar: angelica is the original hbic.
when susie came into town thooooo…
in the new rugrats reboot,
betty is gonna be a lesbian.
now that i look at her with grown eyes,
it makes sense.
what’s gonna happen to her hubby,
she left him for a vixen?
some people are having a fit with the news.
i was sent this screenshot of what someone fonted on fb(?)…
aren’t we past this type of shit?
this the shit that annoys me with people tho.
So it was okay to ASSUME she was gay,
but it’s not okay to get confirmed about it?
it reminds me of people who stop speaking to someone because they came out to them.
they felt comfortable sharing that side with that person and this is how they get repaid.
they hung tough with them,
but until the person confirmed it,
it became an issue and the friendship ended.
some black families LOVE to assume a family member is gay,
but they feel more comfortable when it’s kept a secret.
same with drug addicts in the family or those who suffer from mental illness.
it’s okay to make up excuses rather than face the truth.
Typical dysfunctional black family bullshit.
it was the part about monitoring kids for me tho.
do these folks realize in real life that there are legit gays raising children?
in two-parent households,
might i add.
not the single baby mama/daddy/random brothers & sisters dynamic that many are used to.
it’s not like the cartoon character is gonna be eating pussy on screen.
i’m sure there were no “monitoring kids” when they were twerking to “body” by megan the stallion.
that was okay tho because it made for great tiktok dances.
some of these offended parents can do this:
Put their kids on the magic school bus and ship them off to the land of Talamazoo.
There is no tv,
or human life there so they can monitor them in the dark.
we should start monitoring kids from the fucked up family dynamics these raggamufins keep putting them in,
