It's not just that they're doing it, it's the way they are doing it that is a shining example. The spirit of realizing that gay characters reflect a little thing called reality. With their honest and direct approach, they make fools of those who try to pretend gays don't exist.
Which, in my book, is pretty much how it should be. Mitt Romney could take some advice in tolerance and humane treatment from the likes of Archie and the X-Men. Perspective. I likes it.
