Let's just say everyone in Etheria is bi and call it a day. Win for all. In all seriousness though, I think the problem is many American's are too conservative to accept a toy company putting sexual orientations on their toys or childeren's properties....(remember the whole Bert and Ernie debate ). TG already said it's not going to be on there. I don't see him going out of his way to put it on Spinnerella if we ever get to her as a figure. It's just not something I see happening anytime soon.
For the record I don't have a problem with homosexuality or people being themselves. Love is always a good thing and you should be free to love whomever you choose. What I have a problem with is putting referances to sexuality on toys just to do it (both gay and straight).

Awesome pic Tallstar! I LOVE it. Interesting that she doesn’t have her mask on in that pic. Did she not have it in FILMation?
I watched the episode, but I don't really see it. They are good friends. Netossa calls Spinerellla "sister". They share a room in an inn, but the members of the Fellowship of the Ring share rooms in the Prancing Pony. (Lord of the Rings) I looks to me like someone got the job of introducing two new characters and they thought the easiest way to introduce them was to have them retell the story of them joning the Great Rebellion. Having them already know each other saves a little time in the story. I also thing it is a really weak episode. So much reused animation and the characters have very little depth. Spinnerella comes off as not being very intelligent. She lives on a planet ruled by an evil empire and doesn't know who the people are that are part of the evil horde.
I want a Spinnerella figure, too.
Children are aware of the concept of dating. And they’re probably the only ones to NOT sexualize it.
This is not Masters of the Christian/Catholic/etc Universe. Your beliefs on relationships are your opinion. My belief is that marriage is an outdated tradition used to control people. Who said that people need a legal contract to prove they love each other. Love is love and sex is sex. The two are often intertwined, but they are different. I see no reason why children can’t be told from birth that two men LOVE each other, just as there is no hesitation to suggest that a man and a woman love each other. I find your comment deeply insulting. A sexist or racist comment would be reprimanded but this is allowed?
My seller/trader/buyer feedback:
MOTUC Most Wanted: 1) Skeletor's Robot Knights 2) Sssqueeze 3) Tung Lashor 4) Stridor 5) Night Stalker 6) Lizard Man 7) Snake Mountain 8) Battle Ram (back half) 9) Roton 10) Eldor
Need Strobo gun - PLEASE PM me!
Yeah, that all fine and good. But it aplies to all. I'm not surprised that you didn't get that impression form blackiecats' comment because it doesn't apply to you. Read his/her last sentence. To me it basically says that gay is bad and children should not be subjected to it at an early age. Replace 'gay' with any other word that applies to you and tell me it's not an insult.
Regardless, we have been told numerous times to keep the convo about MOTU. Blackiecats did not. It looks like two sets of rules to me.
