That is not going to turn out well, even as an Evangelical Christian myself I don't think that capital censorship is the way to go.

In short that isn't a hill worth dying on.

Haven't those two always been gay ever since the original Young Avengers run?

Why just get angry now?

So, freedom of speech is SJW now. Understood.

Well, that's terrible. Is it even legal? I'm pretty sure Bolsonaro will speak in favor of it, but without legal support such a measure won't last.

LOL the guy essentially gave free press to the book and helped boost sales with them being sold out. Also I thought most comic book are rated for teen already unless is different in Brazil.

Also IDK if it's SJW to want freedom of speech. But considering the op potentially being a troll and posting similar stuff like that, it is not surprising.

@buttersdaman000: well, that's better. Still worrying it took the president of the Supreme Court to overturn it, but better.

It's also not SJW to have LGBT characters. Wiccan and Hulking have been around for about 10 years.

Eh. I dont really agree with censorship in general but i dont see how this is any different from our government censoring nudity or violence.

Our government doesn't actually censor that much. It usually takes something extreme to get a piece of media banned by the government (I.E. the tutorial book on how to be a hitman) otherwise most "censorship" comes from the broadcast networks just trying to avoid FCC fines. But the media itself can be distributed through other means.

I didn’t know that freedom of speech was SJW. Plus how is showing a gay relationship SJW. Please explain. I swear, people who are constantly whining about the SJWs and being outraged over every little thing are probably more annoying than actual SJWs.

This mayor banning books for no reason other than they go against his religious beliefs is unbelievably backwards and stupid in a democratic society. It's as bad as what the SJWs do when they criticize and censor things for not conforming to their insane political ideology. The courts made a bad decision here.

I don't see how you can equate a kiss between two gay people to nudity or violence.

A gay kiss from a comic book which I would assume barely any Brazilian reads is the least of their problems.
