ITT: Characters with tainted reputations

Why has He-Man become one big gay-joke?

Maybe is just the gay costume and gay haircut, but who knows...
>>
Have you WATCHED He-Man, OP?

>Why has He-Man become one big gay-joke?
He became a gay joke because he's a big hulking goober with a pageboy haircut in a show that doesn't have a lot of chicks.

He REMAINS one big gay-joke because it's 2015, and despite claims to the contrary, humanity is no more sophisticated than it was in the 2000s.
COME ON

>>77945565
Mostly I think is the haircut. Doesn't help that apparently he dyes it blond.

The show was also campy as hell.

And the haircut is really guy.

Which is funny, because he is basically a recolored Conan, but Conan doesnt look as gay as he is.

So is probablyy the campness of the show, with the blond faggy hairtsyle.

This didt helped either - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ5LpwO-An4

As strange as it can be, I prefer He-man version than the original music. His version is funnier and more energetic.

Because it's all part of an elaborate and long term plan by the neo-feminist movement to deconstruct the "macho man" image that all men aspired to be. They realize that they can never go against men if they have those kinds of bodies to overpower them so they're brainwashing male children from a young age that muscular heroic characters are gay fags while the lanky pretty boy with no muscles is the popular must be type of guy.

>>77945651
In the animation AND og voice acting community industries, it's widely known that Filmation was homo central in the 80's. They had gay models for their rotoscoped animations for He-man and other shows, as well as a lot of the artists themselves. Did you never wonder why their company's name was rainbowed? Hell, Lou Scheimer, a co-founder of Filmation, was openly gizzay.

> because he is basically a recolored Conan, but Conan doesnt look as gay

Conan's image was helped by being able to be shown as incredibly violent and covered in blood while saving big-titted women.

In He-Man, the women are all completely covered, the men are all practically naked and no violence was ever allowed. 80s cartoons were ridiculous, everyone running around with swords and laser rifles and not allowed to hit anyone with them.

Violent beefcake = masculine.
pacifistic beefcake = gay pride rally

Let me put you this. Back then every single Sword and Sorcery was beefy. From the protagonists to the secondary characters. Take all the characters drawn by Frazetta and try to find one that is not beefy. And besides all today's superheroes aren't depicted beefy as well? So better stop being hypocrites.

So Cavil and Afleck that are super beefy, are super gay as well isn't it faggot?

And yet, that "crappy" cartoon will always be the first thing most people will think of when they hear "He-Man".
>>
>>77950175
And Filmation is the reason of why "crap" and He-Man became synonyms as the first thing that people think about him. At least the most recent incarnations have proven that MOTU has the potential to be an epic Fantasy franchise.

>>77949859
Dude I watched the 2000s series as a kid and even I think of 80s He-Man when I here the character mentioned.

>>
>>77946618
From an old edit of He-Man's Wikipedia article:
>There is an enduring urban legend about the so-called "Conan toy line". The story is that the Mattel Toy Company originally intended to base an action figure line on Conan the Barbarian, the pulp fantasy character created by Robert E. Howard which at the time was the lead in several popular series produced by Marvel Comics and due to be the subject of a major movie. However, after viewing the film, the Mattel executives despaired at the thought of promoting a children’s toy with ties to a film featuring such graphic sex and violence. Thus they gave their doll blonde hair and re-dubbed him "He-Man". The legend is unverified but persistent, and most likely false since the first He-Man action figures were produced in 1981, a year before the first Conan film. Roger Sweet, the originator of He-Man, asserts that the He-Man/Masters Of The Universe concept definitely was not an outgrowth of Conan. The He-Man concept, later renamed the Masters Of The Universe, was originated and developed by Roger Sweet in late 1980. Later, that initial concept was followed by the original comics by Donald F. Glut. The Conan license had been dropped by Mattel months before the He-Man concept was begun. At that time, the barbarian fantasy theme, later applied to the He-Man/Masters concept and line, was broadly visible notably in Frank Frazetta and Boris Vallejo barbarian fantasy art - not specifically from Conan.
>>
>>77950364
It's part of the pop culture, but this doesn't change that it is crap. The 200X series was superior at every aspect, even if it wasn't so difficult considering how shitty the Filmation cartoon was.
>>
>>77945651
That Tarzan looks like it was modeled after Schwarzenegger, you can tell by the shape and proportions of the muscles. Particularly the size of his pectorals in relation to his abs and arms.

No that's just because gays are actually attracted to men and their bodies while women are attracted to the other attributes like success and money. Men in general are more sexual so it's natural that a gay man would seem to be more into masculine muscle guys while women don't show that kind of interest.

This happened in Blazblue. The most muscley manly character often is joked around as being gay. I actually really like the idea of overly macho gay characters like Shoreleave
>>
>>77945565

I've heard plenty of people talk about how filmation at the time was very open and very accepting of gays and lesbians and had many on staff. I'm sure a lot of the stuff that's been read into it was at least partially intentional. But things that make it gay are pretty obvious, beefcake as mentioned before, the campy tone that got even more campy as the show went on. there was also a total lack of relationships on the show, so that kinds leaves the characters to be blank slates to be projected on or shipped.

That's because they have their beauty standards and Japan isn't West. The gay stereotype in West still is the flaming fruity twink(=Japanese heterosexual), but muscles will always be connected to gay culture because gay men just appreciate them so much.

Tell that to the majority of MAINSTREAM viewers. Cartoons are a bigger medium than comics. This is why Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are seen as kiddy shit in general across the globe despite their original source, the Mirage Comics. The bigger the medium? The more cemented the image of a franchise.

Thankfully Batman escaped this bullshit and found a balance between serious and campy incarnations.

He-Man is not gay but since he is so super manly all the guys start to feel attraction to him so they think he must be gay and then pin the blame of their own homolust on He-Man.

The cartoon actually paved the way for 80's cartoons to be way more violent than the 60s and 70s. Why do you think the only thing fr the 70's was Scooby doo and subsequent knock offs? He-man was the most violent cartoon that aired after two decades of violence free over protective garbage.
