I'm 100% in favor of it. Having a lesbian Disney princess would be HUGE and groundbreaking and do wonders for LGBT representation and visibility. And it also would make me suddenly give an f about Frozen.
Plus think of all the homophobes it would make seethe! Mwahaha.
If I am being completely honest, I do not want her to be lesbian. I would prefer for her to stay single. I have nothing against the LGBT community, but I do not want her to become a lesbian because I just can't see her that way.
Okay, here's my opinion. Let's not forget that nagyelo is a KID'S movie and that means that there is no boy x boy and girl x girl couples because it will ruin innocence. I haven't seen a kid's movie with something like that before. Who had this idea of Elsa being a lesbian anyway? So I'm gonna say it's a bad idea. I know you didn't mention anything about girl x girl or boy x boy but.. lesbian actually means that she has a crush on another girl, nothing like that should be in a movie for little kids. It would put Elsa out of character AND it would ruin the story of Frozen. A lot of parents would not let their kids watch the segundo movie if Elsa would be a lesbian even though the kid would beg them.
For me, it's fine either way. I mean, being gay myself, I'd pag-ibig to see representation in a Disney movie... but I'm not that big on Frozen, and I'd rather see our first proper LGBT character debut in an original movie rather than in a sequel: I mean, it looks a bit like they're pushing it.
1: Elsa being a lesbian does NOT fit her character at all. To make her a lesbian just for the sake of making her lesbian would ruin her character and the movie.
2: And that is why I say no to this. I feel like they just want to squeeze in as much gay stuff in pelikula just for the sake of please the LGBTQ community. Besides, the fans started this petition, not the writers. The writers should not have to carer to the LGBTQ community. Whether they have gays in their pelikula or not is THEIR choice alone. Not ours.
I can't think of a single reason why it'd be a bad idea as such. It's good for representation and it might even help certain Disney fans to be less homophobic. That said, with Elsa specifically, I'm not sure whether I prefer the idea of her having an orientation besides straight or whether it's best to never have her ipakita romantic feelings towards anyone, keeping her orientation un-established.
To be honest, some of the other comments I've seen here against the idea have only convinced me that Disney needs LGBT characters even more.
In b4 some dumb liberal 15 taon old virgin calls me an homophobe.
I'd like it but only if Disney did it on their own accord, I don't want them following twitter trends and hashtags, like, seriously, anyone who follows twitter is just dumb. That site's full of stupidity...And knowing if they do it to please an audience it'd be very half-assed and cliched, and i just rather they do it because they want to, out of a desire to do it. People who do things forced ALWAYS come out with a shitty product. And I don't want Elsa's big romance to come out like some shitty pagkatapos ng paaralan Glee special/PSA or the like...
TBH i'd just prefer the new princess to be gay, it leaves a lot madami to explore and ground to work on. Maybe Moana could be gay, but I know that would leave people who dislike gay POCs in an uproar (since these folks are so racist and they see being gay as only "white stuff")
