I refer you to the precedents...

I cannot say this enough (apparently): There are certain immutable rules of life. One of them is that once something societal reaches the pages of an Archie comic, it can no longer be considered "cutting edge," or in fact, "edgy" at all.

I refer you to the precedents of Betty and Veronica go Goth and Betty Flash Dancing Up A Storm.

Now Archie has not only put a gay character into their comics, they have published an issue in which he marries another fella. This is unquestionable proof positive that gay marriage is not only acceptable in mainstream America, but it's actually a bit passé.

But some folks, I guess, never learn...
