It's Not Just Frozen: Most Disney Movies Are Pro-Gay
The Atlantic ^ | APR 23 2014 | AKASH NIKOLAS

The culture warriors have decided: Disney’s Frozen is queer. Elsa hiding her ice-powers could be read as a metaphor for the closet, the Oscar-winning “Let it Go” plays like a coming-out anthem, and a character in the film evokes the question of whether homosexuality is a choice by inquiring of Elsa’s powers, “born with it or cursed?” Some liberals have praised the film for its subtext; some conservatives have denounced it.

In Defense of Prince Charming How Parents Can Turn Frozen's Big Twist Into a Teachable Moment But the most remarkable thing about queer readings of the film may be how unremarkable they really are. Through both its corporate practices and the content of its films, Disney for decades has implemented the so-called "gay agenda"—which is to say, helping make the world a more accepting place.

To start in the most obvious place: As a business, Disney has long held a progressive attitude toward LGBT people. Gay pride events have been hosted at Disney World since 1991, and the company started offered its gay employees health insurance benefits for their partners since 1995, a decision that wasn’t entirely popular back then.

Not to defend the POS Disney but Frozen comes from a Hans Christen Andersen story not some far fairy tail.

Yep. It's a kid's movie.

How difficult it must be for these people, to view their entire lives through only a single prism?

If a Christian preacher had been saying this, the pink press would be having a field day mocking him.

Funny thing is, such "news" items have started in the gay press in the past (like the "gay Teletubbie" item) and became "radical hysteria" when conservatives picked up the talking point.

My problem with Disney throughout the years, is the way repeatedly they show kids rebelling against their parents, and always portraying the parents being in the wrong.

Give me a break. You can read gay undertones into everything... if that is your intent. Did Disney play a fast one with the “born with it?” question? Maybe... but it fits the story fine, so what does it matter? Just watch the damn movie and enjoy it. It’s a good movie. Read into whatever your worldview demands... just don’t demand that I see the same as you.

I’m going to be honest guys, I’ve watched Frozen and even I do not detect a gay theme.

Maybe they should just learn to Let it Go!

Frozen has already been criticized for being 'gay'. Plenty of mocking.

I liked it and didn’t notice any homosexual stuff in it.

How come no one’s talking about the lack of people of color in “Frozen”?

> Frozen comes from a Hans Christen Andersen story

The Nordic setting and the feudalism made me think it was an old Nordic folk tale, but Hans Christian Andersen fits right in there.

I was expecting one of the characters to say “Yompin’ Yimminee” while watching it.

As a previous poster said, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
