I just realized something when thinking about the new Mona Lisa's real name. "Ik'thba." I repeated it in my mind, "Ik'thba Ik'thba Ik'thba Ik'thba," then quickly realized something rather startling. When the name is said repeated, you hear "Thpike Thpike Thpike," sounding like a lisped version of "Spike." If the writers obliquely named her after Spike&mdash;Raph and Slash having made a strong impression on gay audiences as startlingly believable love interests&mdash;it will only add to the suspicion that the earlier writers wrote both Raph and Slash as gay characters before they were seemingly quietly made to stop after the end of season 2. To add insult to injury, Zelda Williams is herself an LGBT actress who voiced a major character in the final season of another Nickelodeon season that ended with two female main characters being in love. I know I'm not the only fan of Raph and Slash who's feeling taunted and betrayed.

All that said, I've been ''trying'' not to care. The 2012 TV series canon has now been split into two separate canons between the TV show and the Amazing Adventures comics. And so far, Amazing Adventures is already much better written. Maybe they'll actually give that version of Raph and Slash more respect and continued development. I no longer trust the TV show to do that.

He'll do him and we'll do us. Wow, when I say it like that it sounds gross and perverted! But you get the idea, I'm just a positive guy/TMNT fan. 😎👍

I don't actually hate the show. I hate what it's become. I really, really loved the show. Let me put things in perspective:

I just realized something when thinking about the new Mona Lisa's real name. "Ik'thba." I repeated it in my mind, "Ik'thba Ik'thba Ik'thba Ik'thba," then quickly realized something rather startling. When the name is said repeated, you hear "Thpike Thpike Thpike," sounding like a lisped version of "Spike." If the writers obliquely named her after Spike—Raph and Slash having made a strong impression on gay audiences as startlingly believable love interests—it will only add to the suspicion that the earlier writers wrote both Raph and Slash as gay characters before they were seemingly quietly made to stop after the end of season 2. To add insult to injury, Zelda Williams is herself an LGBT actress who voiced a major character in the final season of another Nickelodeon series that ended with two female main characters being in love. I know I'm not the only fan of Raph and Slash who's feeling taunted and betrayed.

All that said, I've been trying not to care. The 2012 TV series canon has now been split into two separate canons between the TV show and the Amazing Adventures comics. And so far, Amazing Adventures is already much better written. Maybe they'll actually give that version of Raph and Slash more respect and continued development. I no longer trust the TV show to do that.
