The Facebook page for Captain Planet is pretty much what you'd expect for the brand defined by 90s environmentalism - lots of old clips from the show, messages promoting environmental causes and holidays, and a generally progressive, positive view of things. Because, in case you missed the message of Captain Planet, that's sorta the whole point: caring about one another, promoting peace and kindness, and generally being considerate of others and the world around you.
And in that spirit, the Captain Planet page recently posted a message supporting Australia's push to legalize gay marriage in their country (yes, it's still not legal there!). If you have any familiarity with Captain Planet, this should be the least surprising thing ever. But, for a few people who are fans of the Captain Planet Facebook yet for some reason don't agree with the brand's progressive worldview, this came as something of a shock - but luckily Captain Planet was ready to step in and explain why "basic human rights and decency" was an okay thing to stand up for:
This was meant to be read sarcastically, but the truth is: YES, YOU ARE RIGHT. Less kids, less overpopulation, less pollution! And while gay couples can't reproduce purely through sexual intercourse, lots of gay couples raise children through adoption, artificial insemination, and other methods.
People who shouldn't be allowed to have kids, according to Sign-Asshole over here:
The truth is, you just need someone to raise you who can teach you the basic tenets of human decency, which Sign-Asshole's Parent(s) clearly did not.
"I'm angry at a kids show I didn't like 30 years ago, so I'll continue interacting and engaging with the Facebook page to explain how I never liked it."
