And disrespecting his wishes once again
Hillenburg specifically said that, and NO SPINOFFS when he's retired. What do they do? Exactly the opposite, and after he's dead gone, can't say a word against it. Spit on the man's legacy of providing a childhood for millions of kids worldwide why don't you? he only got you the majority of your channels popularity/ merchandising, why treat the man with any respect post mortem then?
@GayShjtSniper, because it’s all about money to them forget the man’s legacy and last wishes
@GayShjtSniper, because the big companies don't care about people or respect, they care about money and finding more ways to make money.
@Ray213, its not about money. If it was about money they wouldnt have politicized it and split the audience. This is about idealogy.
@GayShjtSniper, all they said was lgbtq asexual is part of that it’s the fans that just assumed that he was gay
@GayShjtSniper, spitting on legacies is basically what companies do now. i.e. Disney with Star Wars or 343 with Halo. In both cases they completely invalidated the accomplishments of the original heroes to make new content. Money is all that matters to them.
@CocoasBro, How did they politicize it?
@Jdrawer, because in 2020 due to far leftists being gay in it of itself is a political move. You can thank the rainbow mafia for that.
@CocoasBro, It's only political because people think you shouldn't have the boilerplate set rights if you're gay.
@Jdrawer, what? Whats a boilerplate set of rights?
@GayShjtSniper, the irony is that Mr. Krabs embodies these corrupt businesses with concerning accuracy.
@Empshok, was just about to say that. Good thing I read the comments first.
@ThePandaPool , you know, I try to remember to do that, but about 50% of the time I just get too excited and reply something already said.
@Empshok, everybody does that at some point.
They said he was part of the lgbt+ community, asexual is included in that. So technically he’s part of the community. But everyone took it as saying he’s gay, and those who did are wrong and defiling a grave.
@Nurse Joy, That makes more sense.
@Nurse Joy, I don't think Hillenburg meant the type of asexual you are thinking of. He meant that SpongeBob should be asexual in the same way that sea sponges are in real life: they are genderless and reproduce without the transmission of gametes to another organism. That type of "asexual" is not part of the LGBTQ community, because human beings are not an organism that is capable of asexual reproduction.
"Asexual" can also mean a person who does not feel sexual attraction to other people, which is part of the LGBTQ community, so you are correct in that sense. But I don't think that's what Hillenburg intended.
@StoneFarb, Given how anthropomorphized all the characters are, and how they've been given humanesque personalities, I would be willing to say both are true.
@StoneFarb, except Spongebob has a mom and dad, so within the canon of the show that makes no sense.
@I Are Lebo, Your mom and dad don't have to be people who have had sex.
@Jdrawer, I’m pretty sure there’s a picture of them in a hospital room, mom in the bed holding a baby spongebob...
@Nurse Joy, You're right.
@Jdrawer, they’re not his adopted parents.
Let that poor man Rest In Peace for the love of Neptune.
But was he revealed as black for riot month?
The question is how does spongebob being gay make them money?
@CocoasBro, Forced diversity for their identity politics. Every. Single. Thing has to have it or some blue haired people, who only wish they had it as bad as they pretend to, will get mad and then... destroy you on the internet.
@SeelenVerKaufer , ive been on the end of a full scale tism where theyve found my personal information. Hundreds of people calling my house a day threatening to kill a 12 year old.
@CocoasBro, Maybe... just maybe... Spongebob's gay just because ig was decided to flesh out his character... yknow... for art's sake.
@Jdrawer, i really doubt it.
I'm old enough to remember when some guy on the right wing said SpongeBob was gay and everyone freaked out about him sexualizing a kids show. Now we're here.
@Captain Mal, yeah we progressed to the point where your orientation is more than just sex. Keep up.
Amazing whoever that other person is that decided represent a dead man in his creation of the character to dictate something so redundant. Gay and lesbians have she ra, May have butchered a cool 80s cartoon for their agenda but at least they got one. Stop trying to force characters your like into being something they never were.
@megamanx181x, SpongeBob never was straight, though.
I’m gay and even I was confused at this. Nickelodeon didn’t specify his sexuality when they released it, Twitter just jumped to conclusions. I always saw Spongebob as a fücking cartoon to be honest but his sexuality is clearly asexual -__-
Seasons 1-3 are the ONLY spongebob I acknowledge as existing
Asexual is a LGBT thing. So
I mean, does anyone else remember the episode where SpongeBob says bye to Squidward and Mr. Krabs?
SB: "Bye Squidward! Bye Mr. Krabs! Bye Squidward!"
Patrick: "Why did you say 'bye' to Squidward twice?"
SB: "I LIKE Squidward..."
I mean, that had some undertones...
They just put his picture with a bunch of LGBT+ characters and since he's asexual he is part of the LGBT+ community. That journalist is just a bit of an idiot
But SpongeBob and Pearl went to prom that one time and he was very clearly into her romantically, at least for that episode.
