this is depressing and not at all surprising and also hilarious
like i’m just laughing
a disney heroine whose motivations are not only driven by men so duh, total lesbian
okay so the article isn’t horrific but- … wait a second
- But could Merida be gay? Absolutely. She bristles at the traditional gender roles that she’s expected to play: the demure daughter, the obedient fiancée.
oh .. so every single person who identifies as non-normative “bristles at traditional gender roles”, good to know
- And she hates the prospect of marriage — at least, to any of the three oafish clansmen that compete for her hand — enough to run away from home and put her own mother’s life at risk.
…….. uh ………………….. hey Adam Markovitz, gay people want to get married, in case you haven’t seen the innumerable protests to overturn the bans on gay marriage in EVERY. FUCKING. STATE.
and for the record, I’m not exactly planning to ~run away from home and put my mother’s life in danger~ because I’m queer … thanks for being a judgmental asshole
ONCE AGAIN THE MEDIA READS TOO DEEP INTO SHIT CAUSE THEY ARE FUCKING SHITFORBRAINS
It’s shit like this article that got me labeled as a lesbian in high school for not being interested in dating.
You too, Erin?
Seriously, though, the assumption that women who aren’t motivated by love or follow gender stereotypes are automatically lesbian is a sickening and dangerous mindset.
*face palms into forever* SHE DOESN’T WANT TO GET MARRIED BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO BE FREE, NOT BECAUSE SHE IS A LESBIAN. She even said, “I want my freedom” not ”I hate boys ew gtfo”. People need to understand that just because there was no real love interest in the movie doesn’t make her gay. JUST READ THE OTHER COMMENTS AND YOULL SEE MY POINT
Did anyone else notice the “gay/lesbian/Kathy Griffin” tag?
