BOBBY DRAKE - STRAIGHT AS A DIE...
Let me tell you about my pal, ROBERT - or BOBBY as he was called by those who knew him. Bobby usually hung about with another group of friends, but they let me share in their exploits from time to time. Bobby was slightly... different to most boys and attended a special school. In fact, so did his four friends, SCOTT, WARREN, HANK and JEAN. I knew them from when I was about eight, though they were all slightly older than me - teenagers actually. Not that it mattered much, as they never held my junior years against me. At some stage we drifted apart and I lost track of them. I later heard a rumour that Jean had died, but I was never quite sure whether she actually had or not.
Today I heard that Bobby came out as gay, which surprised me. He always seemed interested in girls and even had a girlfriend called ZELDA. I suspect that the Professor at the special school he used to attend has convinced him by devious means to issue this claim, in some kind of PC/PR attempt to make the place seem more inclusive of different types of people. Or perhaps it was the company he works for. However, the Bobby I knew was as straight as they come and, to me, he always will be. I don't care what he or anybody else says - he's not gay. Never was, never will be.
BOB HOPE once joked that he didn't mind homosexuality being legal, just so long as it didn't become compulsory. Poor Bobby. It seems he's become the latest victim in the PR assault to transform the world into a place that reflects the tastes, desires and whims of a small percentage of the world's population. It appears that tolerance isn't enough for them - they won't be content until they achieve total world domination.
Sounds like a job for the X-MEN. The original X-Men, that is, as their creators intended them to be. Which wasn't as pawns in the hands of those who have scant respect for the characters' history they so cavalierly abandon in pursuit of their aims.
