Velma gets to experience that feeling of when you proudly come out and all your friends and family are like "Yeah, we know."

You'd think Fred would have come out long before Velma.

I always assumed the Mystery Machine was Fred's, which would explain why it's practically a rape van.

Here's some FAQs from questions in the last thread for assistance:

Why?

Why not? The character was based on Sheila Kuehl, who became a leading openly lesbian politician. Was voiced by strong LBGT advocate Mindy Kohn. Additionally played by gay icon Hayley Kiyoko. James Gunn for the live action movies intended it but was shot down by executives. Mystery Incorporated writer Tony Cervone intended it but it was cut from the final production. Why is because the character is allowed to be gay now when it wasn't before.

It's always good news when children's entertainment producers bow to pressure from adult, basement-dwelling fetishists

This wasn't really a question but it should be noted that children's entertainment producers bow to who their target demographic is, just like they did when you were a kid (see also, Scrappy-Doo), and if they wanted adult, basement dwelling fetishists to tune it they would make the Scooby-Gang try to investigate the Deep State. Homosexuality isn't itself a fetish.

...and this affects the stories how, exactly?

It doesn't! Kids can still enjoy seeing the same Scooby-Doo formula.

I don't remember the old cartoons having any romantic themes either, hetero or otherwise?

The show over many decades has shown relationships and romantic themes, and even had there not been it wouldn't be a perquisite that they never do, despite what may or may not be remembered about an old cartoon.

That's fine and all but why is sexuality a part of the story now?

The characters have had straight relationships before now, and there's nothing stating that this is anymore a part of the story than Velma getting googly eyed over a girl. Additionally because something wasn't part of a story in 1970 doesn't mean that it can never be in future iterations.

How many times does some mercenary asshole need to destroy our childhoods and simplicity?

Enough times until you realize that your childhoods already happened, still exist, and the commercial products made for you back then were a period of their time meant to sell you toys not be a part of your personal identity.

FAQ. That's a novel way to set up your strawmen. I thought Velma was based on Zelda "as confirmed by series creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and writer Mark Evanier"?

These were actual questions and statements in the last thread.

I thought Velma was based on Zelda "as confirmed by series creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and writer Mark Evanier"?

You know who the actress that was Zelda they based her on was right? Sheila Kuehl, who became a leading openly lesbian politician and LGBT activist.

You'd turn it off when I was halfway across: zimbach: She tried dating men, but it didn't work out.

No, I didn't. I missed that in History at Scooby-Doo-niversity.

I said it wasn't really a question. Now if you were trying to be pedantic you could say the memory one wasn't really a question in the original thread, which is true though several posters brought up having memory issues with the original series and is what was being questioned by other users and not invented by myself.

Spartapuss: No, I didn't. I missed that in History at Scooby-Doo-niversity


You're welcome for the history lesson. The actress was outed years before Scooby-Doo as well.

I'd argue framing the fetishist thing the way you did is an attempt to inject a level of incompetency that the actual source didn't present but, yeah, it's super pedantic and, fark it. Thank's for getting me that one step closer to quiz show greatness.

Velma making googly eyes at a girl doesn't make it adult entertainment.

Though there is an adult Scooby-Doo cartoon separately coming! Mindy Kailing will be Velma in that iteration.

Or write new stuff so every generation has their own stuff? Look at Star Wars! That shiat needs to die.
Look at Crystal Skull, fark that  Refrigerator.
Transformers is good. Why? Because they didn't have the technology back then. So that was cool. And they didn't change it, they just updated it. Why is that complicated?
Lazy farking unoriginal people. Write new shiat.  Man.
