Marvel Comics will introduce a variant character of a gay Spider-Man with a “fearlessly femme” identity.
The writer of one of the Spider-Man comics revealed the name of the gay Spider-Man and some character costume designs on his Twitter account Thursday.
“Something I realized immediately when conceiving Web-Weaver is that he can’t — and shouldn’t — represent ALL gay men. No single character can,” said Steve Foxe in the tweet.
“His fearlessly femme identity is central to who he is, but it’s not the STORY— which you can experience for yourself in September!” he added.
Foxe later protected his tweets so that only his followers could access them.
The character is scheduled to have his first appearance in Edge of the Spider-Verse #5 in September. In solicitations for the comic, the character is described as a “not-so-mild mannered fashion designer at Van Dyne” who gets spider-powers and “shows us a very different kind of Spider-Slayer.”
There were some tweets from users critical about the idea, but even some of those who were supportive of the idea were uneasy about the execution.
“I respect what they’re doing………but making the first gay Spiderman Effeminite and Camp could be really tone deaf depending on how he’s written…I would have rather had a Peter who acts like the Peter we already know but he’s in love with another guy,” said one commentator.”I’m a young gay lad and yes of course I’m all for diversity and representation but wtf is this,” said another critic.”Not saying that there can’t be a gay Spiderman but did they have to make him any more into a stereotype of a gay person,” read another response. In 2020 a report said that Sony Studios was actively seeking to film a movie with a bisexual Spider-Man that had a boyfriend. Here’s more about the gay version […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
