#Joker #comic #Clown #Prince #pregnant #triggers #outrage Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
The Joker is getting pregnant in a new comic book series they’ve just come out – predictably causing some outrage and backlash from a certain demographic… can you guess who?
The latest story about the clown prince of darkness comes from DC’s series The Man Who Stopped Laughing, which explores various plots and subplots for the Joker… and some aren’t even canon, including this one about him growing a baby bump.

It dropped a few days ago, and people immediately noticed that writer Matthew Rosenberg and cartoonist Carmine Di Giandomenico made up a story about Joker wanting an heir, but one that comes from his DNA. So he begins to pursue the female super sorceress Zatanna.
Of course, she doesn’t want anything to do with the Joker… so she puts a spell on him that guarantees no one else will ever give birth to his offspring, but it backfires – resulting in Joker giving birth all by himself by him The readers will eventually find out. Along the way, the comic strip shows him with a huge belly and undergoing a gynecological exam.

In the end, the Joker’s “baby” is a mutated version of himself… and they’re both in love. That’s about all there is to the entry, and yet – it’s, as usual, caused a lot of feathers in conservative circles.
Some on Twitter are accusing DC of trying to bring LGBT-friendly narratives to their base … which they say has been around for a while, through choices like making Robin and Superman gay in some of their more recent comics. Others, of course, saw this as progress.

BTW, the word “trans” is never mentioned in this latest iteration…but that doesn’t seem to have clicked with this crowd. They see what they want to see and they see the trans joker.
Get those frontal veins throbbing, y’all.
