Wow Disney. Amazing gesture.
For so many people, homosexuality is something that is tolerated but never fully accepted. something that is fine so long as you don’t have to see it or acknowledge it exists but rather view it as a mysterious alternative to normality that is practised behind closed doors.
So for a company marketed as so kid-friendly and non-controversial as Disney, it is really quite touching to portray lesbians in such a grown-up way.
No jokes are at their expense. In fact the jokes are about how stupid the father is for not realising they’re gay. Actually quite intelligent humour considering the directions they could have gone in with a gay token character.
Next step, a gay prince movie. *fingers crossed* Oh man that romantic duet is gonna be so hot.. *swoons*
