On this episode of TV Stars From The 90s Crying About Something, Candace Cameron Bure has handed over the baton to Dean Cain after she spat on vaccine mandates and declared that she’s not anti-vax, she’s just for medical freedom (unless you’ve got a fetus in your womb). Dean Cain is now shaking his head over a comic book character coming out as bi. If you’re thinking to yourself, “Good lord, Chachi, eat a bag of dicks, but not in a gay way, of course!”, that’s Scott Baio! And if you’re responding to that with, “Okay, well then Hercules needs to choke on a heaping dose of STFU!“, that’s Kevin Sorbo! This is 90s TV Superman, we’re talking about!
On National Coming Out Today, which was October 11, DC Comics announced that Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s son, Jon Kent (aka Superboy), is into peen and poon, and that like his father, he’s got a heart boner for reporters. Because Jon Kent is in love with his friend, reporter Jay Nakamura. Jon Kent is far from being DC’s first LGBTQ superhero, but yet, Dean Cain felt like he needed to burp up words about this. While on Fox & Friends, Dean rolled his eyes at Jon Kent being bi, because it’s been done before. Dean thinks DC is “bandwagoning.” via The Hollywood Reporter:
“They said it’s a bold new direction, I say they’re bandwagoning,” the 55-year-old actor told Fox & Friends on Tuesday. “Robin just came out as bi — who’s really shocked about that one? The new Captain America is gay. My daughter in [The CW series] Supergirl, where I played the father, was gay. So I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction. If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave.
And Dean Cain, who is obviously the official spokesperson of all Supermans, also has a problem with what the bi-sexual Superboy is fighting against:
“Brave would be having him fighting for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay,” Cain continued. “They’re talking about having him fight climate change and the deportation of refugees, and he’s dating a hacktivist — whatever a hactivist is. Why don’t they have him fight the injustices that created the refugees whose deportation he’s protesting? That would be brave, I’d read that. Or fighting for the rights of women to attend school and have the ability to work and live and boys not to be raped by men under the new warm and fuzzy Taliban — that would be brave. There’s real evil in this world today, real corruption and government overreach, plenty of things to fight against. Human trafficking — real and actual slavery going on. … It’d be great to tackle those issues.”
Oh yes, because if Superboy was straight, I’m sure 90s TV Superman would be like, “Ugh, another straight superhero, how boring, but why isn’t he fighting the Taliban?!” And well, I guess DC now knows what Dean Cain’s kryptonite is. If they really want to make him lose it, they’ll announce that Clark Kent’s other child has come out as trans and will destroy the border wall.
