Holy Halloween, Batman! Wertham Was RIGHT!

In Seduction of the Innocent, Dr Fredric Wertham claimed, "The Batman type of story may stimulate children to homosexual fantasies, of the nature of which they may be unconscious" and "Only someone ignorant of the fundamentals of psychiatry and of the psychopathology of sex can fail to realize a subtle atmosphere of homoeroticism which pervades the adventures of the mature 'Batman' and his young friend Robin."
There's a delightfully-snarky article about Wertham's conclusions HERE.

  1. "Only someone ignorant of the fundamentals of psychiatry and of the psychopathology of sex..." H'mm, that would be kids then, eh? The very audience that comicbooks were aimed at back then.
