Dora the Explorer: “I’m Gay”

LOS ANGELES – Dora the Explorer, of the eponymous children’s television program, garnered worldwide attention Wednesday, after becoming the first active latina cartoon character to come out as openly gay. Writing in this month’s National Geographic For Kids’, the pint-sized well-drawn youngster explained plainly, “I’m 5 years old. I’m a globetrotting hispanic cartoon character. And I’m a lesbian.” She also took the opportunity to share a brief message later in the day with her over 1.5M Twitter followers, echoing her earlier announcement, saying:

Showing just how far gay rights have come in only a short amount of time, reaction across the internet Thursday morning was largely supportive, with many politicians, celebrities, and children’s television characters praising Ms. the Explorer’s decision.

The only slight hiccup throughout the day was a sustained level of confusion among Dora’s young fan base, aged typically between 4 and 7 years , as to exactly what her announcement was talking about. The matter was cleared up after the entertainer appeared briefly on Univision around 8pm, and led an attentive army of children in a bilingual assembly of a giant rainbow puzzle.

UPDATE: The Westboro Baptist Church has announced plans to protest Dora’s upcoming Friendship Day Celebration, because at this point who the fuck knows why they do any of their stupid shit.
