Elsa Gives Guys The Cold Shoulder 15

It has been long rumored that Elsa will not be getting a prince in Frozen 2, but a princess or queen. Frozen 1 was released in 2013, and since then people have been begging to make Elsa a lesbian going as far as creating a petition.

According to the Huffington Post, “In 2013, Disney was applauded for breaking its princess mold with Queen Elsa, a strong, independent female protagonist, in its animated smash, “Frozen.” Subsequently, some LGBT rights advocates began petitioning the company to make the character a lesbian in a “Frozen” sequel, going as far as launching a trending hashtag, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, on Twitter in May.”

If Elsa was a lesbian, many people would question who her princess would be. Some say Moana from Moana. Others say Wendy from Peter Pan. However, most say that more than likely it will just be a new made up character specially crafted for Frozen 2.

Even the actor of Elsa, Idina Menzel, would not mind Elsa being a lesbian. After all, it would be pretty cool to finally have an LGBT Disney Movie.

Disney’s writers and producers seem to shy away from LGBTQ+ characters or plots, which seems strange since it is a children’s movie. Wouldn’t we want to teach our kids to respect people regardless of their sexuality and make them comfortable as they are?

That is all the gossip I have for this week. For the first time in forever let me know what you guys think about this whole ordeal in the comments. If you don’t like it, then just let it go. If you do, then build your dreamy snowman, Olaf. Ok, I’m going to stop. Until next time, Cougars, have a frozen day.

      • But Disney wants kids to be LGBTQ+ aware. LGBTQ+ isn’t politics.

      • LGBT isn’t a bad thing. It’s just a learning curve for someone discover. I mean, there are Disney shows with gay characters. I don’t know why children shouldn’t know what it means early on.

      • It’s not about politics. It’s about teaching kids to love themselves no matter what. As somebody who has struggled significantly with mental disorders partially in relation to my sexuality, I really wish someone had told me it was normal to feel this way. Introducing kids to these topics can work wonders in their later life.

      • Lgbtq isn’t politics, it’s a lifestyle that more and more people become a part of every day. If kids are exposed to it early on, they will have a better understanding of it for the future; this will help prevent a lot of hate and bigotry that stems from misunderstanding.

    • Like Kelsey and Andy said, LGBT is not politics. LGBT is life. We need to teach kids that it is ok to be LGBT related or to accept their friends & family for being LGBT related. It is not politics, it is simply just life.

  1. Agreed, if you think this is a little kids movie then there shouldn´t be kissing like there already is. Makes zero sense. To add on to that, your making it seem like LGBT is a bad thing and kids shouldn´t know about it, and we should lock it away from them. Kids need to know about this now and learn about it and know that it´s not bad. That way there is no ignorance & homophobia & hatred everywhere. Kids are the world´s future. We don´t want that future to be full of pessimistic people and hatred.

    • I never said lgbt is a bad thing I just rather not have 5 year olds argue about equality and putting these things in children movies doesn’t allow them to have their own opinions, making them sheep

      • putting heterosexual romance in kids movies meant for five-year-olds is something that kids shouldn’t be seeing, but we put them in movies anyway. This shows kids from an early age that “This is the norm, and if your not straight, you’re weird.” If we’re going to include romance in a kids movie, we might as well be inclusive.

      • I feel like it is better for kids to discover homosexuality themselves and decide if they support it or not so it gives them an option

  2. Actually, Andy, like as I said in the article, Disney is shying away from this, so that is why people are trying to be aware. I am not saying I want Elsa specifically to be LGBTQA+ related, however, if they could just make another movie dedicated to that, it would be great.
