I have took the whole family to see it and we watched it at home twice already, and none of us had made a connection to it being pro-gay or having a gay character coming out of the closet.  Just a goof family movie.     In fact when I first heard the controversy I thought maybe it was because the snowman was not a  manly man.   But no that's not it at all. Far more subliminal - too subliminal for the average family to notice anything if that was their intent.

Is the strategy of Hollywood to teach children that there's something other than boy-girl....girl-boy...expression of love?

I'm not bothered by it.

Dumbo tied to pro-gay plots? Disney does what Disney does. If you don't like it don't watch it.

I'm far more concerned with the TV shows these days than Disney movies, and  nobody seems to be speaking out against them- at least according to ratings.

My cable offers 100s of channels. Then I subscribe to Netflix, which I watch most of the time. I cannot tell you what is in the content of almost the entire list of channels, because I don't care and never watch them.

Is there something wrong with others having freedom to watch, or not watch, even if you don't like or approve the material?

If you are "concerned" about them, does that mean you want them banned by government edict?

Frankly I don't want a government so big as to involve itself in my entertainment options, or if I have a gun, or to incentivize me to drive an electric car, or what I eat, etc.

Concern doesn't translate into a desire for bigger government. It's right to be concerned that children may be indoctrinated to accept things that may go against your family's values. There's enough of that in the public schools!

I think what most of us would do with our concern is 1) look more closely at the movies and TV shows we permit our children to watch; 2) teach our children to evaluate critically what they hear or see; 3) discuss our concerns with others. I suspect most of us here are too fond of the First Amendment to call for banning.

In the case of this article, however, I think it's utter nonsense to say "Dumbo" had some sort of subliminal homo-friendly message. It's just wishful thinking on the part of the writer, who apparently sees homosexuality around every corner.

It reminds me of why I stopped reading the New Yorker magazine: it seemed every article, every book and theatre review, tried to convince the reader that all the world was homosexual, that Lincoln was a homosexual, that every famous writer, actor and composer was homosexual ... and it all became quite tiresome!

Frozen is gay?

Where? When? And more to the point - HOW!

These guys realize that Walt Disney was one of the most conservative men in Hollywood, right?
