We're here, we're queer! We are Sonadow!
Did you read my title correctly? I bet you did. Now, as you may have realized by now, I DO NOT support gays/lesbians but I DO NOT shoot guns at them. But, since I do not support them, I'm going to list the reasons why. If you are a Sonic/Shadow fan, please read this to understand why some people dislike you.
First of all, it is due to the fact, Sonic isn't gay. He has not hinted any signs of love towards Shadow (or any other MALE character). Now, what most fans say is: "SEGA HATES GAYS, THAT'S WHY." Actually, SEGA has no problem with gays/lesbians and my biggest proof is Rotor the Walrus in the 25 Years Later Arc under the writing skills of Ken Penders. He made Rotor gay and his partner was Cobar the Echidna. "Archie and SEGA are different, you knucklehead!" That's what most of you are thinking now about me. But now, I'll elaborate: the comics may not belong to SEGA but are checked by them. When they give the green light, then everything is alright. They allowed Rotor to be made gay but knew that the moment this was openly announced, they would lose half of the fandom and so allowed Rotor to be gay but only hints were allowed to be dropped here and there. Not announced openly. Notice how I mention "lose half of the fandom". This is very important when it comes to marketing strategies. Losing half of the fandom also means losing a lot of cash. This cash comes mostly from pre-teens and teens who buy games with their parent's cash. The child could be totally okay with it, but not the parents. They would immediately stop giving any money to their kids if this was allowed. The fact that SEGA is already struggling with financial problems and by announcing this, they would struggle more will not help their position in the markets. Then Nintendo will certainly laugh in their face.
Secondly, not a very big reason is religiously. I know, some of you do not go churches, synagogues, mosques, etc but there are others who do. They read the Holy Book and have comprehended it word by word. They know that why would God create woman if Adam had wanted to mate with a guy? Saying over here that God would not know is A VERY BIG INSULT. Notice how I stressed upon these words. How can you say God does not know? He has written down all of our faiths word by word, detail by detail and has exacted the exact time this world be no more. A bit scary, isn't it? Obviously, He would know that at point of time man will create the idea gays/lesbians. Some people say "they were born gay/lesbian". Very wrong. First of all, being gay/lesbian is a sin. Notice how those who are gay/lesbian are not very religious or are not scared of God. But those who are not, some of them at least visit a church, synagogue, mosque, etc. Why would God include something sinful in our systems? Being gay/lesbian is just a state of mind. Yes, a state of mind. People who are so think they are. One of the biggest things I have noticed about gays/lesbians is that they often change their victim into being gay. They were never gay/lesbian originally.
Please, I don't like hate comments, and if you have noticed, the words I bolded and capitalized are so for stress, not anger. If you haven't moved from your current position after my argument, then I can only say one thing: Hey, I tried, didn't I?
