I still have no idea why this is news-worthy. Someone care to enlighten me what makes this comic so special to Americans?

... I feel as though that if this is your only complaint about the new character, then society is either doing something horribly right, or horribly wrong. "Oh fuck me, Jesus! Someone had the nerve, the unmitigated gall, to out-Jughead, Jughead! How dare he!" In a comic book series that has a constantly changing and developing plot, (I AM referring to superhero comics, although I do recognize the irony in claiming that stories centered around individuals in brightly-colored latex who use their incredible powers to save the world from similarly attired individuals who think that the best way to solve all their problems is with ray guns have a constantly changing and developing plot.) a character that can match the abilities of one of the main characters is often revered for their prowess and the differing personalities of the two rivals makes for an interesting dynamic.Booze Zombie said:I know, right?Tom Goldman said:Am I the only one up in arms about this new character? Archie Comics is really overstepping its bounds here, if I may be so bold. Do they seriously expect us to believe anyone could beat Jughead in a burger eating contest? Jughead Jones eats a stack of five burgers at once as a snack on a slow day, and some prettyboy out-of-towner is supposed to be able to defeat him just like that? I think not, Archie Comics, I think not. It's pretty forward thinking of them to introduce an openly gay character, though.
Jughead's awesome brain is powered by massive amounts of junk food, how could anyone beat him?
Also, good, good, whatever.
same I havent either.Aura Guardian said:

Don't worry I meant it as a joke I just found your responce humorousWolfiesden said:
Mind if I ask when you look said courses? As I have taken psychology 'courses' and 'deviance' is incredibly hard to define. Indeed, trying to define anyone as 'the norm' is what keeps psychologists up at night. Especially with homosexuality; it's hard to argue against something being 'natural' when it's communicated by brainy men living in steel flats using the interwebs.Le Tueur said:As a person who has taken a lot of Criminal Justice courses it technically is. Fellatio, Cunnilingus, Buggery and etc are all technically listed as "deviant behavior". So am I saying homosexuality is wrong? No. Am I saying that sexual acts involved with it are listed as this? Yes.AngloDoom said:Woah!Wolfiesden said:
Did you just compare criminals to homosexuals? I see we have a time-traveller in our midsts.
In other news, that's quite a big step forward. From what I know about Archie comics (this thread / Superdickery) they're a very 'old fashioned' kind of website. If they introduce this character's sexuality casually that's quite a big step.
I lol'd pretty hard at that.Hurr Durr Derp said:
Exactly what I was thinking.bobknowsall said:Oh god, I'm having Chasing Amy flashbacks.
Hahaha.BANKY: Archie, alright! Archie and the Riverdale gang were a pure and fun-lovin' bunch. You can't find dysfunction in those comics, because they were just flat out wholesome.
HOOPER: Archie and Jughead were lovers. *sips his drink*
BANKY: Shut the fuck up.
HOOPER: It's true. Archie was the ***** and Jughead was the butch - that's why Jughead wears that crown-looking hat all the time: he the king, of queen Archie's world.
As a Movie I can't recall goes: "I love High school girls man I keep getting older they just keep stayin the same" or something to that affect.SteelStallion said:Archie has been in Highschool for 70 years, poor guy...
