Image via Instagram @hallexchloe tl;dr: No, not everyone’s a racist for not being happy. But yes, everything’s about race. The Ariel Debate Yes, yet another writer is posting an article about the current Ariel debate. Which let’s be honest, has just devolved into a grudge match about race. But many are sidestepping discussion on the complexities of race and how it affects this situation and all others. So, I’m attempting to do so. When I first heard the news that Halle Bailey was...

Halle Bailey Instagram / Ariel – The Little Mermaid Screen Capture Two days ago, Walt Disney Pictures unleashed the apocalypse by announcing they were making a live-action movie of their hit, animated film, ‘The Little Mermaid.’ The public backlash began with slight grumblings against the casting of Melissa McCarthy as the larger-than-life, evil villain, Ursula. Scores of ‘Mermaid’ fans took to Twitter with their impassioned cries of bad casting. Whereas most agreed that McCarthy is a terrific actress, some people found...

Andrew Lipovsky/NBCWe adore Melissa McCarthy as much as the next gay, but the news that she’s circling the part of Ursula in Disney’s upcoming live-action Little Mermaid makes us feel like “Poor Unfortunate Souls” since we live in a world where Lizzo exists. After McCarthy’s potential involvement made headlines, the “Juice” singer-slash-rapper-slash-flautist retweeted a video from when she started campaigning for the role — fully dressed in character — way back in November. “I’M URSULA. PERIOD,” she wrote at the...

gay teens

Andi Mack, the Disney Channel show that features an out-gay teen and earned the network a fair number of “firsts”, has been canceled. The tween dramedy series’ third and final season will air this summer, according to Deadline. While certainly an entertainment niche, Andi Mack rose to national prominence in 2017 when a 13-year-old character, Cyrus Goodman (Joshua Rush) told his friends Andi (Peyton Elizabeth Lee) and Buffy (Sofia Wylie) that he had feelings for Andi’s boyfriend, Jonah (Asher Angel). That moment...

Disney’s descent into indecency continues… The Disney Channel recently featured two anti-family story lines that shocked audiences around the globe. One of the Disney’s new TV shows, Andi Mack, features the first gay storyline on the Disney Channel. In a recent episode, a 13-year-old character "realizes" he is gay and “comes out” to his friends. His friends accept and affirm his same-sex attractions, and they applaud him for expressing his “true self.” This anti-family storyline already forced Kenya to pull Andi Mack...

It is not the first time when Disney plays with gay stories and same-sex relationships, especially in animated shows like “Star vs The Forces of Evil” and “Doc McStuffins” to name a few. This time, however, it goes all in by featuring the first gay storyline ever with the second season of “Andi Mack” coming up soon. GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis declared that: Television reflects the real life world and today that includes LGBTQ youth who deserve to...
Doc-McStuffins

Disney cartoon series Doc McStuffins featured an interracial lesbian couple, and One Million Moms are not happy. In a first for a Disney Junior show, the most recent episode of the cartoon series featured same-sex parents. The episode, titled The Emergency Plan, was centred around teaching kids what to do in an event of an earthquake. Rather than featuring a mother and father, however, it featured two parents – voiced by Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi – trying to re-unite their...
Descendants_2

And fans are not happy Disney has cut a gay kiss from Descendants 2. The film, which features the children of classic Disney villains, is under major fire from fans for cutting a very important scene. Harry Hook, the son of Captain Hook, and Gil, the son of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, kissed in the original cut. While straight couples got together in the sequel, like Dove Cameron’s Mal and Mitchel Hope’s Ben, it turns out Disney might not have been...

At the heart of the discussion on gay stereotypes portrayed negatively in Disney animated classics are some points worth real thought. Re-watch some of the old gems of your childhood and you may start to notice a theme emerge among the films’ ne’er-do-wells — they all exhibit some similar gay stereotypes around femininity. Here’s a clip from the 2015 documentary Do I Sound Gay? that speaks to the point: https://youtu.be/ZQ6C4p0HvZ8 But if that’s the heart of the matter, let’s call this the elbow:...
lgbt cartoons

LGBT cartoon characters have always been part of your world. Much has been made about the “exclusively gay moment” in the live-action Beauty and the Beast, but a closer look at the Disney archives shows that LeFou is hardly the House of Mouse’s first queer character. They may not have been out of the closet, but these animated folk definitely pinged our gaydar. Captain Hook Peter Pan’s fashionable foe leads a ship full of men on a mission to capture a group of...
