So apparently Jughead came out as asexual. What do you think? Personally, I don't mind, I always saw him as romantically uninterested, even when I was a kid.
>people still read Archie
>people still write Archie
>people still care about Archie
>>Betty and Veronica can't admit that they are into each other just as much as Archie and get in a poly relationship in any universe
Right? Absolutely disgusting.
Real talk though, would absolutely anyone actually object to the threesome ending if it ever happened?
I hope it does, asexuality as rarely seen on tv. There's Sheldon from TBBT, who's a terribly written example, and Charlie from It's Always Sunny, but that's never been explicitly stated.
are you trying to use a deleted scene to prove a point? charlie banged dadarrio like 100 times in one episode, dude aint asexual
the only time Charlie was shown having sex was in The Gang Hits the Slopes, and that was the mountain weirdness making everyone act like an 80's movie stereotype.
In other episodes he actually goes out of his way not to have sex, like in The Gang Group Dates
This is a joke right? It's the culmination of a million idiotic things into one big "Hah, gotcha!" moment, right? That fucking blind hack Moen drawing, everyone being a faggot or snowflake-sexual, the obnoxious writing and liberal undertones. There's a big blank A4 page coming up with big letters saying; "Pranked you!", right?
>Charlie from It's Always Sunny, but that's never been explicitly stated
Charlie has been caught pounding off by Frank multiple times and in the newest season, he has awesome sex with a hooker in a Jacuzzi and he clearly seems to enjoy it
I don't think he was ever asexual, it's just that prior to the series starting, he had only had bad sex with one disgusting chick, and then took like 8 seasons until he got laid again because he's awful with women
That doesn't sound like him "coming out" That sounds like Gay dude telling him what he is. Doesn't change anything.
Eh. Who cares whether or not the dude wants to bang chicks. Asexuals that would give a shit are mostly teenaged girls that want to have their own label but can't manage faking lesbian or trans.
Archie Comics outsell Image, Dark Horse, Oni and IDW. People still read Archie.
Get used to the idea of being outnumbered by the plebians. You don't get to be elite without being in a minority.
I had to look up who that was and my god, we could have someone worse on art than Henderson.
I really had hopes for Sharknado, it's just dumb enough that if the comic took it seriously enough, it could've been great.
Archie just has so many properties that could lend itself to better horror ideas. Don't they also own the rights to Casper and Wendy? Hell a Josie and the Pussy cats could go full Mystery Inc played serious and would be great,
>Charlie from It's Always Sunny, but that's never been explicitly stated.
Indulging this nonsense is part of the problem. Why do we have to label every character with a quirk as "x-sexual" to explain said quirkiness? Why can't we just have comedic characters anymore? Why does it have to be sexual at all? How does this impact any character on any meaningful level?
But you know what? Let's cut the bullshit here: This is not character growth, or some writer's new "vision" of the character. This is simply a transparent attempt at drawing in the tumblr audience because it's been proven to be very lucrative and creates free publicity. Good or bad, it's a win win. Me, right now, talking about this? Publicity. I'm doing exactly what they want me to do. They're really like tripfags now. Talking about it is giving them the attention that they crave. The only winning move is not to play.
I know it's been bad for a while now, but this kind of shit is really blatant. It's just pathetic and depressing enough for me to take the bait and make this post.
>people honestly trying to push the "asexual" meme
Look, I get it if you are not "into sex", or if you aren't really a "horndog" like the rest of us and preferes more "mentally stimulating activities", or even if you have a hard time finding someone that gets you going, but if you honestly don't feel sexually attracted to no one, not a single person, you are either lying to be a special snowflake or mentally unstable.
And also, why is Archie of all comics, pushing this shit???
Is the book popuar on tumblr?
Are the writers/artists popular on tumblr?
Why not just make Betty and Veronica lezz out every so often, it would be much hotte... I mean, better and more diverse.
Speaking of Archie, has there been a new Afterlife since the Shining Christmas issue? I'm like three months behind on all my pulls since the move to Alaska and only just got set up at a new LCS.
They're ribbing, like friends do. One guy doesn't really like hot dogs. The other one says "just because you literally can't even stand to be within a 10 mile radius of hot dogs..."
"just because you jack off to burgers and vomit at the sight of women" has the exact same meaning in context. He's saying that Jughead's not super-interested in romance like everyone else is. This isn't some sort of "coming-out" moment or whatever - it's an exaggeration for effect. Which people would know if they had ever even talked to another human being in their lives, and could refrain for ten seconds from slapping a label on everything in sight.
Is this a gay American thing? Cause all we talked about as teenagers was games, movies, getting buttfucked by whatever class it was we were taking/teacher that hated us that week, making fun of the fat kid, making fun of the ugly chick, etc.
In fact, the only time we might have even covered that was when my friend said he was gay once, we called him a faggot, then moved on
>"I don't look at people and think 'hmm yeah I'd have sex with you,"
This is called a "low sex drive". Unless you are chemically incapable of achieving sexual arousal, you are not asexual.
I hate that we're watering everything down. Words stop meaning anything. Transgenderism has gone from being a niche, serious issue to being a widespread non-issue. "Bisexual" now means that you've masturbated to a man once. You're now healthy even if you're obese. Spoiled children appropriate important words for their own use to make themselves feel important, and they dilute the meaning to the point where there isn't any meaning any more. But the rest of the world hasn't caught up yet, and so every time they see these words, they associate them with the previous, concentrated meaning.
>never talking about anything related to sex
Come on now
Labels like homosexuality etc were all made up in the 18th/19th centuries, Protestants, Puritans and Victorians had to control and scientifically dissect everything that made them tense.
Laurel and Hardy were always 'funny fellows' and pairs of guys going through life single have always happened, especially where money is scarce. No money, no women, but still close friends because that's free.
This time with all it's stupid labels on sexuality is going to be flatly laughed at by the future, along with the power of social media. It will be explained that like monkeys and children we were too easily caught by the charm of pressing buttons and making things happen. The whole meme of being connected by devices forgets that you can only connect things that are separated from each other.
I always thought of Jughead as kinda like a holy man, he has his head up high and is wired to focus on other crap than tits and cars.
Asexual is a label made up by people with low sex drives who wanted to act like they were special snowflakes for something mundane desu senpai
It's pretty obvious they're only using the label now for publicity.
>Old timeless character confirmed for having a character trait that has been part of his personality since his inception
And it was in comedy fashion, not a celebration-of-varied-sexual-identities one.
Who cares about made up sexual orientations.
Jughead has WAY bigger issues.
Such as his poorly drawn neck's outline not even connecting to his shoulders in panel .
Like I am not a picky person. I usually don't even catch art issues.
But that is one heck of a fuckup.
When did archie start to change so much, I have all the after life with archie, and life with archie, but now it doesn't resemble what it used to be in the slightest
Asexuals aren't romantically uninterested by default, that's Aromantic. They just lack sexual attraction to either gender, that's it. Most Asexuals are some form of romantic, it's the sex part that makes it hard for them to date.
Not necessarily, what if she's never experienced sexual attraction in her entire life?
Attraction and arousal are different areas of sexuality, like how a blindfolded straight dude can get off to another dude blowing him but not be attracted to that dude.
Blame the jews. Literally, in that they realised labels are marketable and can be merchandised. Same thing happened with "gamers" and "nerds", it's just the current flavour of the month is sexuality
Jughead just wants to eat and fuck Burgers.
This isnt a hard thing to grasp.
Even in the rule 63-verse she just wants to eat and eat. She probably east all the hotdogs and sausages she gets off with.
>no one is ever allowed to casually remark about anyone else's proclivities or lack thereof
Let's get real though. The most extreme thing this revelation could lead to is men and women flinging themselves at Jughead's feet as he ignores them and eats burgers.
this isnt real life bro, so why bother adding real life attributes to things. when someone gets outed in a way, how often do they remain the same? im thinking about iceman being outed as gay, and going hard gay all of a sudden
>they had to say he was asexual, instead of just making a joke where he does something like shoves a hot girl aside and takes a bite out of a hamburger when asked if he'll ever have a girlfriend
Well someone just dumped all of Afterlife tonight, and then there's this from Francavilla's site
Tumblr asexual means next to nothing, but this was handled realistically - it's something asexuals don't think about, but others (who can't understand not feeling sexual impulses) notice and care about.
Asexuality is more like a lack of identity, rather than adding to identity. Tumblr thinks it's a badge to display for everyone to see, which is what makes any mention of LBGT into a progressive SJW boogeyman for the internet to (probably rightfully) hate.
Anybody making a big deal about this now is a moron, whether they are for or against. It's what Jughead's always been, now they just slapped a label on it to spell it out.
Iceman is dressed like this now?
>I swear, if we could harness the power of conservative butthurt we could fuel a ship to Alpha Centauri in a month.
GOD YES. Thank you.
Watching conservatives here whine about how "tumblr" it is to give a shit about social issues... jeezus.
If Trump, Cruz, and Rubio are anything to go by, then today's conservatives are anarchists in all but name—so convinced that life is nasty, brutish and short that they're determined to make it a self-fulfilling prophecy.
One hint of social activism in a goddamn Archie comic and you jump? That's not right.
Jughead's Time Police is still the only canon I believe in. Jughead/January were the best couple.
let them fuck with classic icons, they only have a few months before the conservative president rounds them up
it's like a wasp in a jar, it knows it's dead so all it can do is buzz angrily
>Watching conservatives here whine about how "tumblr" it is to give a shit about social issues... jeezus.
But making asexuality into a social issue is fucking retarded. It's not an identity. It doesn't define your life. It's just not being interested in something that many people are interested in.
>If Trump, Cruz, and Rubio are anything to go by, then today's conservatives are anarchists in all but name
You haven't watched a fucking debate, have you?
>Seems like conservatives are scared to actually call themselves conservatives these days, they call themselves egalitarians or classical liberals instead.
Bill Maher fits into your category, but Sargon of Akkad actually thinks he's a liberal because he lives in the UK where our left/right spectrum doesn't make as much sense.
It's definitely not a huge social issue that requires legislation or rallies or any such extreme bullshit like that, but in the course of day to day life it's still a social issue when you get people coming out of every hole in the ground when it's mentioned to tell asexuals that they're: "gays in denial", "were abused as kids", "have something wrong with them psychologically", "just haven't found the right dong/vagina/asshole yet."
Like shit, it doesn't HAVE to be fucking anything if people would just accept that they exist and leave it at that.
That said, tumblr asexuals that whine about not being in pride rallies, getting protections/attention, or acceptance into gay groups are also fucking retarded.
