If the cartoon is like you say then I would not support it.
It's just that some people see a "gay" agenda everywhere.
Cross-dressing is one of the oldest forms of humor, and can be found in everything from Bugs Bunny to Cow and Chicken. One could take clips from there and say there is a gender-blurring agenda, when it's clearly just for a romp and a belly-laugh.
At Shakespeare's time women were not allowed on stage (a custom still found in some very religious countries) so all the female roles were played by men. Was this an evil gay agenda? Certainly not; it was a patriarchal tradition.
In India (from where the OP gets his terminology) the hijras bless births and weddings. The devotees of Lord Aravan are men dressed as women and are married and widowed by their god every year.
So from that tradition the "third gender" (who can dance for men at highly gender segregated functions) is very auspicious.
According to some Christian fundamentalists kundalini energy is regarded as demonic possession.
So that in itself can also be dismissed as evil, and part of a Satanic agenda (see the books by Rebecca Brown, e.g.: Prepare for War).
Tantra is only one way towards awakening kundalini. There are non-sexual methods too.
The devotees of bhaki-yoga would point out that it is not the most appropriate form of spiritual practice in our age of the Kali Yuga. But, each to their own path.
A lot of negative male rape can be found in patriarchal systems that precede any gay political movement.
It is widespread in gender segregated religious systems where older men have access to young men and boys.
It is also rife in violent homosocial systems like prisons
Bizarrely such institutions have a wide social acceptance amongst the moralists and homophobes.

But to call being Gay as WRONG, is as singularly obtuse as calling an inter-racial couple wrong. As calling a Muslim wrong if you are christian..As calling a right-handed person throwing a baseball with their left hand as wrong.
I would have to disagree!
We have all reached this point in evolution by the birth of children through the union of male and female relationships. If a person has a different religion, country of origin or has a different skin colour is not the same as homosexuals.
Yes, I'm sure it has always been in life but it was kept in secret. The Romans had harems where one man was pleasured by many women and the women pleasured eachother. This was not accepted in society in general though because it would effect the birth rate of the nation. Every nation required numbers in population to defend the borders.
The reason why it is accepted now is to slow the worlds population growth down as we have become like a plague to mother nature. Everything we do these days effects plants, animals, environment and ourselves.
In order for us to remain stable and healthy, we should not promote behaviour that is destructive to our survival.
The primary exoteric reason the NWO is promoting homosexuality is De-population.

There is really nothing more to this recent public acceptance that's out of the ordinary...except that you, like the racists after the Jim Crow laws failed, sit and sneer and mutter the word faggot instead of 'n-word'.
Seawind, I respect your views differ from mine, but the only decay I see on this board is the American dream. Homo or hetero, as Hefficide said when he trounced Dark Ghost a few posts up...This normal/natural thing is purely subjective. To quote Hefficide:
"All [things are] natural. Moral objectivity has no bearing upon the reality that, if it occurs, then it occurred within the confines of natural parameters. Morality is not a function of nature. It is a function of society. Nature is filled with things that we, socially and morally, would find undesirable or reprehensible. ( I am not including homosexuality in this statement as I personally do not find it to be a negative at all. )"
