The latest culture battle in regards to homosexuality has reached Elsa, the fictional heroine in Disney's 2013 animated feature "Frozen."
The controversy began on April 30 when Twitter users began calling for Elsa to have a girlfriend in the 2018 sequel, "Frozen 2." The hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend began to trend big time, reports The Guardian.
Those Twitter users want more of a representation of the LGBT community in film, but the online platform CitizenGo, which uses petitions and action alerts "to defend and promote life, family, and liberty," started a petition on May 6 asking otherwise:
Join us in standing against the absurd "movement" to turn Queen Elsa of Frozen into a lesbian during the 2018 sequel, "Frozen 2."
...Frozen is the “highest-grossing animated film” of all time. Its influence reaches into the hearts and minds of children. Girls across the world grow up dreaming of the day they marry their Prince Charming and they want to be like their favorite Disney Princess.
We hope that Disney will not give in to the pressures of the liberal agenda. We are asking you to fight back now. Ask Disney for Elsa to fall in love with her Prince Charming. #CharmingPrinceForElsa
According to Right Wing Watch, Gregory Mertz, who began CitizenGo's petition, sent an email to members on May 9:
With our petition, we’re suggesting Disney with a much better idea… An idea that promotes solid family values to our children and represents the natural family.
Join the 37,000 -- sign our petition, now, to Disney asking that Elsa fall in love with a Prince. #CharmingPrinceForElsa:...Queen Elsa a Lesbian? Thinking about our children, this idea is frightening.
Pastor and radio host Kevin Swanson predicted on May 9 that Elsa would eventually get a girlfriend, which will help "homosexualize" children, according to Right Wing Watch:
Anybody who has the guts to stand up against the homosexualizing of kids in the present day will be shamed for it and that means that the homosexualizing of kids will be wholesale happening across this country in the next two, three, four, five, 10 years.
Of course Elsa is going to get her girlfriend eventually. That’s the way you destroy sexuality. That’s the way you destroy an entire civilization. The entire social system of the United States of America is collapsing.
You have got to be sure that you have homosexualized four-year-olds and six-year-olds and eight-year-olds and ten-year-olds in order to destroy a civilization, because the destruction of a civilization happens over two or three or maybe four generations max. In order to bring a civilization down, you’ve got to homosexualize the kids.
In order to bring a civilization down, you’ve got to homosexualize the kids.
