The culture warriors have decided: Disneys 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 Elsas 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.

Took the wife and kids to see Frozen. We’re all gay now. Darndest thing.
How difficult it must be for these people, to view their entire lives through only a single prism?

How does one extract a gay theme from frozen?
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.

Maybe they should just learn to Let it Go!
