Okay, this is getting out of hand. People keep removing any mentions of Harold's husband/sexuality.
Listen to me: it's confirmed that Harold is gay, and it's not offensive at all to children or to anybody. Why are you guys ignoring this?
DAV PILKEY HIMSELF ENDORSES IT . HE PUT IT IN THE BOOK HIMSELF. IT'S FINE.
From the article: "I've known these kids for the last 20 years and I always thought that Harold might be gay," Pilkey said. "I wanted to show that they have been true to themselves and live happy, healthy lives. I wanted them to be happy in the future and in loving relationships."
Basically, he recognizes that it's stupid to hide homosexuality from children, and he's right.
Anyway, I have put the information back, and I promise this will be the last time. I don't want an edit war. I'll be disappointed if you guys remove it again without a GOOD reason. If you think it's not important, then say so. But don't remove it because it's "offensive". It's not. You're the type of person Dav Pilkey dislikes, the person who censors things to "shield" children. It goes against the spirit of Captain Underpants.
- "might be" isnt the same as "is". Two men getting married doesnt necessarily mean either is homosexual. Could be bisexual, asexual or a heterosexual "chuck and larry" situation. Author will need to be more explicit before it is proof.
- the proclivities of older versions if characters in the future do not necessarily reflect those of their past selves either. That assumes the stance that orientation is fixed from birth and that it is not mutable. talk2ty 17:36, July 10, 2017 (UTC)
name of husband being Billy
- Old George, his wife, and their kids, Meena and Nik, sat on the couch, while Old Harold, his husband, and their twins, Owen and Kei, plopped down in the giant beanbag chair.
As of "Dog Man: A Tale of Two Kitties", George and Harold are confirmed to be in 5th Grade but that does not mean that they have had their birthdays yet. Have the dates of their birthdays been confirmed anywhere? Even if so, how is the passage of time measured in the books? Based on the ending of "Captain Underpants and the Terrifying Return of Tippy Tinkletrousers", the events of the first three books occurred one week after the previous one but the time difference between "Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (and the Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds)" and "Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants" is never indicated at any point in the story (in any of the books).
