Him?

Steph(anie) said...

Exactly. I love that show, but could never figure out how they get away with those villains.

Ummmm... yeah. Obviously we are unclear on the sexual proclivities of Old Scratch. Or even if "he" is a boy or a girl. Who likes girls who like boys who like boys who like girls. I think he likes 'em all! Why the hell not! Eternity is a long ass time to stick to one gender, if you know what I mean.

I've been thinking we need to name sexual orienations for what they are oriented toward... whether you are male or female, if you are attracted to women you are a _____ and if you are male or female and attracted to men you are a _____ and of course bisexual would still be bisexual.

Made more sense in my head than it does here. :)

Him was an awesome villain. I have a queerpunk zine somewhere with an interview with His creator.

And I think your idea makes sense. Simpler than what we have going now.

Steph(anie) said...

I agree with you about Him, I just mean the show... the Professor is a white guy, the primary villain is asian and the devil guy is queer. And nobody got sued?

downtown guy said...

Why would they? The monsters spanned all types. And the Professor created Mojo Jojo, too. But Fuzzy Lumpkins and the Gangreen Gang were both more rockabilly/hillbilly than anything else. And how about Princess Morbucks?

Steph(anie) said...

I almost forgot about Fuzzy Lumpkins! :D

I used to watch that show a lot, back in the day. I was smoking a lot more herb back then.
