|For LGBTIQA+ Pride month 2020, Funko Pop released a series of rainbow versions of their most popular figures. There’s dozens of them in this promotional offer, but we thought Spongebob Squarepants is the poster child for rainbowification.
Nickelodeon itself recently hinted as to Spongebob’s alternative lifestyle, which raised some mild, bemused controversy. Like, in the first place, sponges themselves do not have gender, nor do they reproduce by any means we’d consider to be sexual. But since when did gaps in logic ever hold Spongebob back?
Is Spongebob Squarepants gay? Does it matter? Sponges don’t have wee-wees anyway, and we never see Spongebob hang out with his own kind.
