“Danny Fenton was my gay awakening.”

“Yep, me too. I remember watching it at my mum’s friend’s house and feeling super uncomfortable.”

“In one episode, when he is battling with Flash, Flash says, ‘I’m gonna wail on you, Fenton.’ … But in the Latin Spanish dub, he says, ‘I’m gonna make you moan, Fenton.’ … It just sounds really gay.”
