Jumping the Gay Shark

From the DailyMail:

DC Comics plans to reintroduce a character as gay in a future issue, it has been revealed.  
Senior VP Sales Bob Wayne said DiDio’s view ‘had evolved’, comparing the shift to Barack Obama’s recent endorsement of same-sex marriage.  
DiDio did not specify which character would ‘come out’ or in which issue it would be featured. 
But Courtney Simmons, DC Entertainment’s senior vice president of publicity, told ABC News that it would be soon. 
'One of the major iconic DC characters will reveal that he is gay in a storyline in June,' Simmons told the network.

Crap like this... and like this... are the reason I stopped collecting comics. All the blatant political stuff just stole all the joy and fun from it.
