Crazy Mormon blogger sees “Gay agenda” in Disney’s “Frozen”

This was posted on RfM about this Mormon blogger's post about somehow seeing the "gay agenda" in the new Disney movie Frozen. The only problem I can see Mormons having with this movie is the character saying that one shouldn't get married right away because they meet Prince Charming. After all, RM's are told that they should get married ASAP, and that quick engagements are preferrable to someone committing the sin of premarital sex.

She's crazy alright! What she doesn't seem to understand is that we all live in closets, hiding the parts of ourselves that make us feel insecure. That is, of course, why the blogger herself claims she was hesitant to publish this piece—people might hold her in derision or label her paranoid.

 

The message I got from this really awesome movie was simply this: take control of your life and don't be ruled by secrets and shame.

She'd see gay agenda in ANYTHING. I want her to do the Lego movie next. Then she can make her way through the classics.

I have to thank her for this important lesson I learned from her blog: If you don't want to be accused of being a bigot, just add a little sidebar comment explaining how you're not a bigot (even if you are).

I'm going to disagree... I actually "agreed" with the blogger's argument. It's just those sorts of things represent my own moral belief system, so I'm glad they are in the movies. It's funny how those sorts of values can resonate in ANYONE once the religious dogma over your brain is circumvented. What the blogger fails to realize is that it is popular because people love it, meaning it has values that resonate with people enough to pay for the movie and sing the songs. What someone should really consider: If those values resonate with 4 year olds and good people everywhere, why are you listening to your old religious dogmas to avoid and disregard them?

I saw the movie with my 12yo daughter (she's seen it 3 or 4 times). I don't recall seeing anything in it that promoted the "homosexual agenda"

 

In fact, my daughter and I have spent time discussing Frozen and found it to be full of uplifting messages about learning to accept yourself, friendships, and the incredible love of family - specifically the sister in this movie. We liked that the main characters were female; that one was going to be Queen without having to marry first; that the idea of marrying someone you'd just met was dismissed as a poor idea; that is was sisterly love and not romantic love that saved them; etc.

 

Sure, "Let it Go" has notes of rebellion in it -- the poor girl was locked up in her own home for years, with all sorts of rules placed upon her by her parents. Her parents died, now she was free of their rules and it was time to let go all that had happened to her and try to make her life her own.

 

Personally, I think that fact that that blogger see homosexuality in every frame and note says far more about her than it does about the movie itself.

I can't prove the movie isn't promoting the "gay agenda" to have gay people treated like people by society at large. I also agree with you that the "gay agenda" is good.

 

But I think the movie is about so much more than the plight of homosexuals in society. It's about empowerment of the individual within the social context—casting off the old guard.

While the "gay propaganda" tag might be overstating it, I'm going to have to go with dovahkiyn in saying there's something there.  OK, to be perfectly fair: when I say "I" am going with this I mean "I listened to DW."

 

Her view (and some good practice from her English major) is that if ti wasn't written specifically with a gay "coming out" theme, it's at least useful for one anyway - after all, the meaning of a work is ultimately left up to the audience.  If someone can see the movie (or more importantly, hear the songs) and it can help them decide that they're free to be who they are, that they can put the closeted past behind them, the all for the better.

 

Yeah, I can see that.  And if you read that "well-behaved Mormon woman" blog (what self-respecting woman calls herself that anyway?), that's just the attitude she's complaining about.  People watching this move might just decide that they're not just miserable sinners after all!  Oh noes!

 

While I don't think Disney really meant the plot to be pro-gay (except that one flash of the sauna scene), I do think there was a generally "subversive" liberal theme.  This isn't surprising, following on the heels of Tangled which had a similar self-actualization anti-authority bent.

 

Well-behaved Mormon Woman:

The fact is, that not one of us would allow a person, contrary to our values, to come into our homes and teach our family many of the principles advocated in the movie Frozen - such as rebellion/disobedience - as good.

 

The fact is? I guess that depends on who "us" is, sister.  The fact is, I have worried that my children would learn the church's doctrine of "obedience über alles" and not understand that they are the captains of their souls.  Thankfully, I don't worry about that as much as I used to.  Authority for authority's sake is one of society's most pernicious evils, and a little rebellion is often necessary and good.

 

Shame is at the core of Elsa's feelings about her magical powers: same-sex attraction.

 

Again, I think she's reasing something in the specifics that isn't written.  But if it was, she'd be right: she and the church have a pro-shame agenda, and see it is a proper and useful tool for control.  Shame is one of the church's worst evils, one of its strongest tools for controlling the masses.  And the masses don't need to be gay - the church will helpfully provide you plenty throughout your life to be ashamed of.

 

The message of "Let it Go" is specifically intended to rebel against moral absolutes, which have governed society for centuries, now being viewed by a progressive agenda as antiquated.

...

This is not an innocent song, with a catchy tune. It is rebellious. It mocks moral absolutes. It is careless. It is unaccountable. It is anti-obedience. It is regardless. It is selfish. And if you still disagree, then by all means, feel free to show me how I've misinterpreted the lyrics.

 

All true.  What can I say?  The woman is just plain right.

The latest thing making the rounds on facebook is that the blogger has a gay daughter. I cannot verify this, but holy shit, imagine the daughter reading this type of screed. Sorry honey, but you're worthless.

 

So... what is this gay agenda? To be loved? To spend time with their family? To be treated fairly and equally? To love their partners & children?

 

Sounds pretty subversive to me.

 Just wait until she gets to 300 and the Lord of the Rings triology. Oh and Braveheart.

 

Well, any movie, really, where a bunch of half-nekkid men beat the crap out of each other with big phallic objects. SO homoerotic. 

 

ETA: Fried Green Tomatoes is also a gay love story. Fact.
