Marvel's Prodigy Is Bisexual - Get Over It!

Marvel's announcement that character Prodigy is bisexual got a lot of people butt hurt (no pun intended!), saying they're trying to force LGBT propaganda on children. WorldofBlackHeroes.com reports that Prodigy was added to Marvel's Young Avengers line-up and that the announcement of his bisexuality caused an uproar with some comic books aficionados: "The comments regarding the news ranged from comic companies forcing LGBT themes/characters on kids to the feminization of Black males to this being a representation of the population".
What's all the fuss about? This is 2013, aren't we ready for more LGBTQ characters? - Lou C-D.

True I havent read the issue and I guess I will but this screams of trying to get attention to a title that isnt doing too well.

I think if they make the introduction of his attraction to the same sex natural, then it won't be gimmicky.

My ONLY issue with this is that at no point in this character's what 10 year history did they ever hint or elude to this and in fact his romantic relationship with a female character was an enormous story line when he was first introduced ... I don't care if the character is bi but this feels waaaaaaaaaaay too forced and seems like a gimick

Good. Hopeful nothing extremely bad happens to him. I read a list of LGBT characters that have endured extreme violence after they've revealed their sexual orientation.
