Being gay is not a “sexual situation.” Kissing is no more a “sexual situation” between two woman than between a man and a woman. You can’t tell me opposite-gender characters don’t kiss ALL THE TIME in animation for children.

Thousands of kids go missing every year. Basically any name you can think of there’ll be a kid missing with that name.
