Brazil municipality bars Marvel book emphasizing homosexuality

If there's any country willing to stand up to homosexual propaganda highly likely to be promoted to children, it appears to be Brazil's authorities in Rio de Janeiro, who, according to the Hollywood Reporter, are banning Avengers: The Children's Crusade from local literary festivals:
In an unexpected move, Rio de Janeiro mayor Marcelo Crivella has announced that the translated edition of the Marvel comic book series Avengers: The Children’s Crusade would be removed from the literary festival Riocentro Bienal do Livro so as to protect the city’s children from what he described as “sexual content for minors.”

The so-called sexual content in question is an on-panel kiss between two male characters, Wiccan and Hulkling, who are in committed relationship. Both characters are clothed in the scene.
Sounds to me like the trade journal's trying to defend this cheap sensationalism simply because it doesn't involve actual intercourse in beds. Sorry, but that defense doesn't impress me.
Crivella made the announcement on Twitter, in a video where he says, “Books like this need to be wrapped in black sealed plastic with a content warning displayed on the outside.” In ordering the removal of the title, he claims that the city’s authorities are “protecting the minors of our city.” In the text of the tweet itself, he describes the contents of the comic as “content that is unsuitable for minors.”

Crivella’s tweet followed an Instagram post from Rio de Janeiro councilman Alexandre Isquierdo, decrying the book and complaining that it was “spread[ing] homosexuality to CHILDREN!” (Emphasis his.) The sale of the book, he complained, was “an absurd crime.”
In a way, yes, smutty books like that one are aimed at children, even as populations decline in various places. On which note, when you see SJWs opposing heterosexual elements and calling to censor them based on the allegation it's to "protect children", don't buy into their pathetic defense, because if birthrates are plunging in any particular part of the country/world, then there's not many children to protect from supposed harm, and besides, if they got no serious issues with graphic violence - which could also include sexual assault despite their supposed claims to the contrary - then that just exposes their hypocrisy. Why, come to think of it, the very propaganda in such comics is what can lead to population declines to boot.

If anything, there should be a clear description of what elements can be found in the book, beginning with a rating system that'd be honest about the content, and parents definitely need to check the products before deciding if it's suitable for their children. Maybe better still would be if somebody were to argue that criticism of homosexuality and its downsides should be allowed in entertainment as much as anything else, because the "Children's Crusade" obviously doesn't have any.

And if the book were barred in Islamic countries based on the content, something tells me the Hollywood Reporter wouldn't even have said anything. Their article, from what I can tell, isn't altruistic.

Update: regrettably, a judge later barred the mayor from having the book banned at events where children could be present:
A Brazilian judge has blocked the evangelical mayor of Rio de Janeiro from trying to ban a Marvel comic book which shows a kiss between two male superheroes.

The authorities must "refrain from confiscating works based on their content, especially those which deal with homosexuality," judge Heleno Nunes ruled Friday, granting an interim injunction after finding an apparent contradiction with the constitutional right to freedom of expression.

Copies of the book, "Young Avengers: the Children's Crusade," had sold out after the mayor demanded it be withdrawn from Rio's book fair, organizers told AFP.
What kind of people see this as something to uphold at all costs to the point they'd buy it, assuming that's true? I admit freedom of expression is important, but it shouldn't come at the expense of children's sanity, or anybody else's, for that matter. And would they make this kind of a fuss if a product with heterosexuality on full display were the item banned at festivals? Something tells me they wouldn't.

Anyway, the ruling was partially overturned more in the mayor's favor:
The raid also kicked up lots of backlash for the mayor — from festival organizers, publishing houses, comedians and, finally, the Brazilian courts. On Friday, a judge barred Mr. Crivella from further seizure efforts or any attempt to withdraw the festival’s permit, a ruling that was partly overturned on Saturday.

[...] Festival organizers tried a bit of reality altering themselves on Friday when they took the mayor to court, winning an injunction against efforts to bar the book. The judge cited the organizers’ constitutional right to free expression, but his ruling was partly reversed on Saturday when a second judge said that gay and lesbian content for children should not be publicly displayed.
If anything, such books shouldn't be marketed to children, and should at least have a rating and description making clear the content. Better still, parents themselves should figure out how to explain to their children why this is abnormal, and how the SJWs pushing this stuff want to make it seem otherwise.

Update 2: One Angry Gamer has more clarification:
However, that’s not really the whole story.

You see, it had less to do with the gay kiss and more to do with warning labels.

Brazilian outlet Estadao goes more in-depth about the matter, explaining that fictional media that contains sexual content aimed at kids need to have warning labels. This is actually part of Brazilian law, specifically the Statute of the Child and Adolescent.
And that's what apologists for Marvel's propaganda won't consider. Decent education for children is something they never take into account, in all their twisted beliefs of what's acceptable.

The mayor did Marvel a favor. The book fair got an injunction against the mayor's ban, and the book sold out because of the publicity.

I doubt it was kids, the traditional audience for superheroes, buying it.

It was woke adults.

Marvel is doing a very good job rebranding themselves in print as a brand for homos.

Anyone who has done any research into LGBT activism knows that it is full of people who are hostile to the heterosexual family. It's not the gay kiss that is the problem but the concurrent subversion of the family as (outdated, oppressive, hetero-normative, and "binary").

Here is synopsis of the book fair.

"The book fair, which concludes Sunday, will host events on topics including “happiness, science, motherhood, theater, trans literature, LGBTQA+ and more,” according to the Instagram post." It already isn't family friendly, despite the topic about "motherhood". The mayor is doing too little, too late. This a show that will be attended by "educated" people. All the wealthy (educated) people in Brazil are most likely indoctrinated into lgbt lifestyle if they have gone to college (especially) and the history of the Christian right in this country will most likely follow the history of the Christian right in America. It will be done away with when Israel no longer needs its support.

I always suspected that the Christian right was a false flag operation, and it has finally been confirmed. There were obvious clues - the use of the old Testament in their Bible, the worship of a jewish guy as a secret way to get non_jews to look upon jews with favour. I am amazed at the perspicacity of this commentator - Hitler despised Christianity as a religion of weaklings, but even he never saw beneath it to its true face.

Meanwhile, sleeper squads of Israeli assassins are already in place in major American cities, waiting for the word to become activated and remove Christian rightists from the equation as soon as Israel no longer needs their support. Except of course for Bill Keller and Pat Robertson, who will be given the opportunity to return home to Haifa with secret medals for their service to the country, where they will live happily at last but under assumed names.

I have also noticed how many engineers and dentists have been indoctrinated into the gay lifestyle by their college education. Don't let those dentists put their hands in your mouth.

by indoctrinate , I mean they will not question any of the demands that militant LGBT activists (they got rid of the moderates )make.

They will not question whether it is okay for a convicted criminal to get a sex change operation on the taxpayer's dime.

They will not question whether gay pride parades can ever be lewd or obscene.

They treat gay people as a protected class who can do no wrong.

Telling gay men to stop knowingly transmit A.I.D.S is a form of oppression.



Time was when convicted male criminals were forced against their will to take female sex hormones. Think of Alan Turing.

The problem with describing the position of an un-named ‘they’ is that it slides so easily into complete fiction and fabrication. If the enemy is fictional, you cannot fact-check anything they are supposed to have said, and they turn into some weird monster with no real-life equivalent. College educated people are debating and questioning all of the things you listed; the point of college is to teach people to ask questions.

It is illegal in most jurisdictions to knowingly transmit AIDS. It can expose you to civil lawsuits and criminal prosecution. Nobody who is at all serious thinks it is a form of oppression to put obstacles in the path of people doing that, whether they are gay men or straight people who are the ones infected. There is an argument that criminalizing transmission will make gay men protect themselves by not getting tested, preserving their ignorance of their status so that they cannot be accused of knowingly transmitting the virus, and that this increases rather than reduces transmission rates. But that is an epidemiological debate, not one about oppression.

Gay people as a protected class who can do no wrong? Try telling that to Lindsay Graham; he was certainly not protected when all the old rumours about his sexuality made it into the mainstream media.

And isn't the lewdness of gay pride parades part of the fun? It is like saying Mardi Gras has to be made safe for the kids. There are times and places where it is appropriate to be lewd, a point that this blog has made repeatedly in its discussions of sexuality in comics, and a gay pride parade is one of those places.

So, you think that Brazil is what all countries should be like, with so many rights being undermined and repressed like labor, health, education, and culture? How many other books have been banned by this guy?

Yeah,we think places where homos like you aren't allowed to talk about being gay constantly is what all countries should be like.

Importing a huge number of Muslim refugees into Europe will change things sooner than you think.

Your days are numbered, homo.

"Decent education for children is something they never take into account, in all their twisted beliefs of what's acceptable."

Truer words had never been spoken. And it's not just Marvel propagandists that adhere to that line of thinking. Hideo Kojima, for example pretty much pitched a fit when the ESRB rated his game Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker "T" especially when he was gunning for it being rated "E" (he wanted to market the game to schoolchildren, hence why school pop yellow was a frequent color for the marketing of the game, and he largely succeeded in his home country of Japan of marketing it to children via the PSP). You can read it here: http://www.siliconera.com/2010/03/03/metal-gear-solid-peace-walker-is-t-kojima-wishes-it-was-e-for-everyone/

That game included quite a few indecent education for children, such as painting the Sandinistas' drug trade in Central America in a sympathetic light at the very least, promoting the likes of Che Guevara as being a sinless man who could do no wrong while completely ignoring how he nearly orchestrated World War III during the Cuban Missile Crisis, praising of the May 1968 riots in France and its various stuff, including "free love" and tearing down the social mores of their parents, even implying they did a far better job than the Hippies in America or a similar student movement in Japan, and, yes, quite a few bits on homosexuality promotion (like with the character Strangelove who is an open lesbian [well, okay, technically she's bisexual due to her apparently going for Huey Emmerich in the ending, but still...], not to mention there's a mission where Miller and Big Boss date and are implied to have engaged in sex afterward, and bear in mind, both characters are male.). Oh yeah, and there was a reference to a wild party at MSF that got lewd pretty quickly.


One of the anonymouses said:

'Importing a huge number of Muslim refugees into Europe will change things sooner than you think.'


So all this talk about the great replacement means that gays are going to be replaced by straight people? Is that why Milo and Richard Spencer are so upset?

It really depends on who assimilates who; will Muslim immigrants become westernized, or will the West become Islamicized, or will it be something inbetween? My bet is that in 50 years the Muslim mayor of Hamburg is going to be complaining about letting in too many American and Russian refugees, because all the American and Russian newcomers speak German with funny accents and have bigoted homophobic attitudes that are incompatible with German culture.

That is the way immigration and assimilation work; nobody puts more enthusiasm into the 4th of July than immigrant families.

The new Kojima game is rated in Japan for 15 years old and up, so I don't think he succeeded in marketing it to children by PSP. And there is nothing in the website referenced that says he threw a fit over the rating; he just sounds a bit wistful that the kids can't enjoy it.

According to the excerpt of his tweet in the web article:


“This time around we wanted to go for a ‘T’ rating since it’s on the PSP. There is no bloodshed effects so the younger crowd can enjoy it as well. But the MGS world and theme lives on. The script is seriously written…anti-nuke and anti-war with the nuclear deterrence theory as the backbone. Wish it could of been ‘E.’”

What does homo have to do with labor or education rights?

Isn't Brazil where the Nazis are supposed to be hanging out since WWII? Or is it the Japanese?

they are not going to assimilate if they are being told that assimilation means abandoning their culture and submitting to white supremacy by their progressive teachers.

No one is calling for Muslims to adopt white liberal attitudes towards homos. They recently protested lgbt sex education at a school in Britain. Homos can't do anything because scolding them for not accepting and celebrating gay sex is white supremacy

no one shows less enthusiasm for the fourth of july than immigrants who have no ties to America and only showed up because the alternative was starvation or murder back at home. they are often too busy working low wage jobs to celebrate the fourth of july.

what's next are you going to claim not-Christians follow the teachings of Christ better than Christians bc "they really know what it's like to be oppressed"?


"No one is calling for Muslims to adopt white liberal attitudes towards homos. They recently protested lgbt sex education at a school in Britain. Homos can't do anything because scolding them for not accepting and celebrating gay sex is white supremacy"

It is true that Homosexual advocacy is mostly a white thing, a characteristic of white European and American culture. Assimilation takes time; the kids of those Muslim immigrants will be more westernized and accepting of the gay aspects of European culture. As those parents recognize. That is why they are protesting.

"no one shows less enthusiasm for the fourth of july than immigrants who have no ties to America and only showed up because the alternative was starvation or murder back at home. they are often too busy working low wage jobs to celebrate the fourth of july."

When did hard work become unamerican? The bulk of the US population (apart from the black population, who were brought here for different reasons) are here only because the alternative for them or their ancestors was starvation or murder back home. They tended to be appreciative of the country that took them in, more than the long established guys who take it for granted.

"what's next are you going to claim not-Christians follow the teachings of Christ better than Christians bc "they really know what it's like to be oppressed"?"

I guess you don't know the parable of the Good Samaritan.

assimilation is NOT going to happen because progressives, who run schools, and government are perusing an anti-assimilation policies where no cultural norms of Muslims can be challenged.

This time is different. This isn't white European Christians immigrating and mixing with each other. The people coming here are people who are coming from countries that they blame the U.S. for ruining. They have real grievances against White culture and will not accept advocacy.


there is no blueprint for making large numbers of muslims abandon their values. ur done, homo.


You have to admit, it is funny to watch white nationalists cheering the invasion of the Muslim hordes because they think it will rid them of the Moho menace and restore traditional values.

Assimilation does work. That is why we have Muslim congresswomen and comic book executives.

keep dreaming, maggot. non-whites are considerably more conservative on homo rights than whites.

African Americans have been in the United States for hundreds of years and would never have voted for gay marriage if they could have voted for it separately.

counting on non-white people to give up their culture and adopt the behavior and attitudes of white coastal rich liberals is not gonna happen.


Now now, no swearing allowed here. We're supposed to be respectful members of society, not like the degenerates that Green like to pick apart in his arguments.
