Darn it, I didn't mean it like that. I just don't want the show to be contorted into an agenda, whether it be gay or straight or Cthullu or whatever. It's just a really good show, and I don't want anything bad to happen to it. And I think the best way for that to happen is to not read into the show too much. Simple as that.
The show is very LGBT friendly. Ruby and Sapphire show lots more affection than Korra and Asami.
I have a strange sadness when I think about Stephen universe...I think "gee, I would have loved that show as a kid!" Instead of "I love that show!" Kinda look at life differently I guess.
I think some kids shows are a lot more inventive nowadays than when we were growing up. They're allowed to tackle themes no one would have been able to get away with back in the 90s, which is great, but at the same time I wouldn't give up the stuff I had, since it helps me appreciate how cool modern animation can be. Not is, since not every show out there ATM is a winner, maybe not even most shows, but there's some light there.
As backward as it sounds, I think I need to watch more TV. A lot of modern culture is passing me by.

Oi, the thing about any show that sets fire to Tumblr is that it will generate a tsunami of super-hyped fans in its wake. Look at Supernatural, look at LoK, look at Homestuck, look at Doctor Who. There will /always/ be the loud, obnoxious, overexcited fans who only want to drag you into their fandungeons for the sake of having someone else to enjoy their superawesome favourite show with. And you hear the loud minority far more than the quiet majority, always. If it looks like a certain show or game has a huge cult following (haha) then it's just cause there's a relatively small group devoted to expounding its glory to the world.
What do you folks think, is this legit?
