Claressa Shields rejects ‘homophobic’ label while protesting gay ‘agenda’

Claressa Shields next fight is not in the boxing ring or mixed martial arts (MMA) cage, but on the Twitter battlefield.

Shields, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-weight world boxing champion, took to Twitter on Tuesday to express her disappointment that Jon Kent, son of Clark Kent and Louis Lane, is bisexual at DC Comics. Superman: Son of Kal-El comic series.

“I googled it this morning and am disappointed they even did that. He has always been in love with Lois Laine! Shields argued before being informed that the Superman in question is actually Clark Kent’s son.

“I am far from homophobic, I just don’t think cartoon characters should be bisexual or gay. Leave the children alone. Don’t set an agenda on children. For me, that is confusing children. If a teenager or adult decides to be bisexual or gay, congratulations. I do not have any problem with that.”

Shields’ argument seems to be that having any representation of LGBTQ + characters in children’s media is part of an agenda. A 2021 survey of Gallup found that approximately 5.6% of all American adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.

Shields currently splits his time between professional boxing (11-0) and the Professional Fighters League (PFL), where he has a 1-0 record. She will fight Abigail Montes in the 2021 PFL final on October 27.
