recruit boys type? he-man isn't sexist at all. otherwise there won't be a sorceress at all..who you know is also a woman. she gave adam the magic sword that made him turn into he-man..so the females are equally treated in the masters of the universe. what those stupid feminists say about the toy line and franchise is totally bullshit..
all i was wondering that even if the masters of the universe need assistance to battle the evil forces then they would approach (or maybe summon) all the mighty heroes of earth at once..instead of going to them one by one.
But the Soceress was there before He-Man, or prince Adam, exist. Not his call.
And in this context when I sayd "recruit boys" there were a sense implied, or I tried to implie one (but of course I dont know english so I may have made it wrong). What I intended is: He-Man looks like someone who only would by on choice dates people of the same sex, in his case males. That's a impression anyway, not a well established story element...
Talking about the fiction from outside it, it is quite sexist. She-Ra has just same physical strength her brother has, but her sword can do all that nice transformation his can't, AND her friend/mount flies!!! Noting "equal" there. (lol)
OK, it was to be a patriarchal scenario at first. After all it is based on Conan!! But things change, and this one reversed. (happens a lot: "equally" is a color hard to find on the palette, most writers not even try, they go rigth to the oposit pole of sexism and call this "problem solved").
I must admit, you have a point, I did not any idea Adan married Teela or had a son. Also, let me say, that prouve he isn't gay, because no gay man ever married a woman or had a son before. (lol)
Ok, sorry, that second point was little too much. I'm just a former fan of He-Man, saw some episodes back in the 80's, did not really know much about the Princie's background. You are right about that.
But I supose a first born prince, even a gay prince, should marrie a woman and should have a son, wen he come to the age for that. For national interesse if noting else. Dont you?
Adan is a selfless good guy. Teela make a excelent queen I'm sure. There you have. (does not prove he isn't strait, just keep the subject open to debate)
This is not fanfiction. This is official. Adam and Teela's relationship goes back in time since they were kids. So no He-Man is not gay at all. Just religiously monogamous (and heterosexual of course).
