For some reason, that sounded wrong…

Whether it looked inappropriate or not, there's also this other issue imo... it probably isn't a great idea to give kids the impression that licking weapons looks in any way cool...? Yes, sai aren't sharp edged weapons, but this franchise tends to pretend they are 95% of the time and most kids probably think they are.


*cough* No, I didn't lick the remaining peanut butter of a knife this morning, why do you ask...

Okay, but when I write the controversial one that belief-bends characters and turns Jesus into an atheist for inclusion (atheists are never gonna be allowed on that inclusivity train ) and it WON'T be something he needs redeeming from, I'm crediting you for being a great inspiration.

Well, the cartoons I grew up watching taught me important safety lessons like this one:

There's a homophobia joke in the original TMNT movie but yes, please continue clutching your pearls like you REALLY care about kids

Kids didn’t even get the joke when they first saw the 1990 movie; only their parents did. Casey is an Alpha Male type, like my late Dad, so of course he’ll freak out if someone presumes that he’s into guys instead of gals. Also Donny clearly said “claustrophobic” but Casey misinterpreted that term as something entirely different, so he’s not only macho but also dimwitted. That’s the whole joke: it pokes fun at his character, not gays.

Plus I get the impression that you’re the type who looks for anything that’s homophobic, transphobic, racist, sexist, fatphobic, etc in a classic movie, so you calling me a pearl-clutcher is ironic in itself.

When Donatello says to Casey that he’s a claustrophobic and Casey responds that he’s never even looked at another guy before. Hardly meant to be homophobic

But wait... what does a gay joke in TMNT 1 have to do with protecting kids? What is the correlation here?

I agree with you although I assume they are trying to say that the “gay joke” in that film was harmful to us when we were kids as if it contributed to the modern day anti-gay sentiment? The dude is definitely reaching with his piss poor analogy if that’s the case

Yeah, that's stupid. And honestly, I didn't even pick up on it as a gay joke until I was in my 20s.

Oh that. It won’t stop the fans from making it happen Casey!

Funny coincidence that I’m doing a Casey x Raph comic following the plot of the little mermaid (still ongoing) lol. It just happened cause I felt it’s funny and amuses me.
