Should there be a strong LGBTQ+ presence on "Rise of the TMNT"?



What do you folks think? Is it time for the latest TMNT show to embrace the growing LGBTQ community? A gay Raphael, lesbian April, maybe a Splinter transitioning to female? Maybe a twist could be that Oroku Saki is actually a post-op... Karai?

Everyone is bisexual until proved otherwise, so there's already a strong LBGTQ+ presence

April should be cis who identifies as a female but is also non-binary and people should refer to her as "ze" or "zer."

Wouldn't that make her not CIS, but "Genderqueer"? I thought I read that somewhere.

Technodrome Moderator: Because hes the hero Technodrome Forums deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So well hunt him because he can take it. Because hes not our hero. Hes a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A dark knight.

That was about BayTurtles Movie #3, and it went sideways.

What do you mean? Karai dressed up in Shredder's armor to fool the Shredder Elite back in "City at War"... perhaps the writing was on the wall, even then?

I’m not sure we are ready for that. At least not all at once.

I have no problem anyone's preference. One of my best friends is gay, but this does not need to be shown to young minds in my opinion

I have this wonderful mental image of you and your best friend hanging out, and then a young mind should happen by, and you just tackle this friend so as to keep them out of sight.

I don't hide my friend. We both went to medical school together and did residency together but I just don't want my children exposed to things regarding sexuality too young

I know what you mean, one of my best friends is a straight but I wouldn't want that hetero stuff shown to kids.

It's all a matter of opinion which is what this thread is about
No offense to anyone. I love everyone but it's just a parenting choice is all
