I can’t stand LGBTQ being forced on society; KOD condemns bisexual Superman

According to KOD, real name Kofi Okyere Darko, he isn't worried about the sexual orientation of people because homosexuality has been in existence for long but forcing it on children and society is something he can't stand.

Producers of the popular cartoon series, DC Comics, Inc, have announced that the new character in the upcoming issue of the "Superman" series, the Man of Steel, will be in a queer relationship and would be seen dating a male reporter in the film.

The details of the issue's plot are to be revealed in November, but images from the comic show Kent and Nakamura sharing a kiss and sitting together atop a building. The cartoon illustration of both characters has since set a debate online about the series associated with kids.

"Latest Superman is bisexual… I sincerely have no challenge with whatever people choose to do with their ‘sexuality’ but forcing it on society is one thing I can’t stand," KOD said in a Facebook post.

He continued that "be gay or whatever, I just don’t wanna know. As children, we never saw these images on television; it didn’t mean that it didn’t exist… It’s always been here with us but this intentional push on us is worrying… Have we lost?"

According to the fashion designer, "we might tolerate them but they should not put these in our face".

However, series writer Tom Taylor argued that the evolution of this new Superman is keeping with the values the character has always represented -- and, importantly, reflects the experiences of many comic fans.

"Superman's symbol has always stood for hope, for truth and for justice," Taylor said in a statement. "Today, that symbol represents something more. Today, more people can see themselves in the most powerful superhero in comics."
