Frozen Turned My Son Gay

Frozen Turned My Son Gay

A Mormon blogger is claiming that Disney’s new blockbuster is turning children gay, inspiring Aaron Gouveia to cast a critical eye towards his “Frozen”-loving son

My son is acting all kinds of gay, and Frozen is to blame!

Yes, you read that correctly. I’m blaming my five-year-old’s sudden “gayness” on Disney’s mega-hit movie, after reading a little something from a Well-Behaved Mormon Woman. No, really. That’s her blog name. And in her now-viral piece, she opened my eyes to the REAL story of Frozen—furthering the Gay Agenda!

Now, I know you’re thinking, “Wait, I saw ‘Frozen’ and all I saw was a story about two plucky sisters learning about love and sacrifice while singing deliriously catchy songs with a talking snowman in a frozen tundra.” Well, that’s what I thought at first too, but remember—that’s just what they want you to think. I’m just a dumbass liberal, which means my tiny mind can barely comprehend the deeper meaning of things. That’s why I’m ever so thankful to religious conservatives like WBMW for showing me the light.

She writes:

“When mainstream society comes to the point where it celebrates that which is contrary to the commandments, taught in a movie presumably made for children, by awarding it the highest accolades within its culture, and good parents don’t perceive it, but rather endorse it unwittingly, we are in serious trouble. And you can bet that those we have to thank are laughing themselves all the way to the bank, while mocking the religious ignorant.”

and

“The process of normalizing homosexual behavior in society is going to require more than the liberal media saying it is so – which they do all the time – or activist judges legalizing same-sex marriage in one state after another. It’s going to require the indoctrination of our children, in order to lead their generation to the next, necessary, level of mainstream social acceptance. Remember, that in today’s liberal society allowing almost anything, even legalizing it, in the name of “love” trumps sin – it’s that powerful of an ideology. And that my friends, is exactly what Disney is selling your children, while you unknowingly standby and watch.”

Now I’m a politically left of center unabashed proponent of gay marriage and equal rights. But, to be fair, that was before I knew I was being indoctrinated. And more importantly, it was before I knew my children were at risk.

Case in point, I took my son Will to see Frozen about a month ago. He loved it. He started singing all the songs like “Let It Go,” at the top of his lungs. I thought it was adorable—until WBMW peeled back the onion to reveal it as a gay anthem (“It’s time to see what I can do / To test the limits and break through / No right, no wrong, no rules for me / I’m free”). Might as well throw a headdress on him and make him sing YMCA!

And that’s when I started thinking about the last month.

Will has been prancing around the house singing these gay songs. He’s also started to pay much more attention to fashion. He picks out his mother’s clothes and helped me match a tie to my shirt. I think he even threw in a “Fabulous!” Also, we had a specific conversation about kids with two moms and two dads, and he thinks there’s absolutely nothing weird about it. The words “totally normal” were invoked.

But all of that is circumstantial. The real proof that Frozen turned my son gay arrived in photo evidence form on my wife’s Facebook account. Will… you see… he was in the kitchen and… well, just see for yourself.Frozen Turned My Son Gay

Yup. That’s right. Not only is my son addicted to cooking, he’s wearing an apron. WITH PINK STRINGS! Clearly the gay agenda has not only been normalized, it’s now in the water supply. Perhaps even airborne. Either way, it’s spreading.

This plague of thoughtfulness, tolerance, equality, respect, and basic human compassion is full-on contagious, and our kids are being affected. If I’m not careful, my little boy could end up being the first generation who talks about marriage without having to put the word “gay” or “same-sex” in front of it. He could also become a victim of this redefined, PC version of modern masculinity, which places an emphasis on totally homo things like feelings, communication, and not drawing arbitrary lines in the sand based on things like gender roles and sexual orientation.

I’m sorry son. I’m sorry I’ve failed you as a father. As a parent. I’m sorry you’ve bought the hype from the liberal media that everyone should be equal and enjoy equal rights. I’m sorry you can’t see the abomination that is homosexuality, and the affront gay marriage poses to traditional marriage. I’m sorry I can’t protect you from movies that erode our social values by promoting messages of inclusion.

“How sad would it be, for diligent parents, who teach correct principles in the raising of their children, to find that their children, as they grow up, have developed, through mainstream social acceptance, unchallenged, these negative attitudes toward obedience, respect and moral absolutes.”

Indeed. How sad.

  1. Brilliant response! Last part really nailed it. For what it’s worth, we (Mormons) aren’t all like her. In fact I’ve met far more people in the church disgusted with this woman’s post than supportive of it…

    • Thank you for posting this comment. It shows that one religion should not be defamed because of one woman’s extremist tendencies. Life would be so much easier if people could just be who they are and at the same time having respect for eachother and showing love, compassion and respect, for themselves and others. I am encouraged by your post that the world is heading in the right direction, whilst extremists become irrelevant. Hopefully one day they will see that humans can live together in harmony and the harm that comes from separating ourselves and making others wrong for the way they are made is a sin. Whatever our sexual orientation we should all love our neighbours, look after our bodies and our planet and be good members of society. It is possible. Our greatest gift is our life. Thank you.

  2. Aaron, What a great post. So happy to have discovered you and looking forward to reading more from you. Thank you for this. I hope it will challenge thinking, validate experiences, and create change. Loved it.

  3. Excellent article. BTW, I read her post (what I could get through), then scrolled down to read the responses to it. Priceless.

  4. Just felt the need to come back with a qualifier. Not all Mormons agree with her and not all people who were offended by the movie were Mormon. I’d like to assume that we all know that but I have a Mormon friend who is working really hard as a mom, therapist, and person to create safety for LGBT members of the Mormon community. Sometimes articles like this can make her feel defeated in her mission to create change in her faith and by supporting this article, I still want her to know I support her and what she is trying to accomplish for those in her community.

    This is what women raising children who have faith and love in today’s world really think….. it’s a good read.

  6. Wow… You really misconstrue the innocent acts of a little boy. What your son is doing is normal. None of those thing he is doing makes him gay. He is FIVE years old…. This post makes me sick. I understand everyone has the right to free speech and the right to the freedom of religion but when people think like this… It goes against some of the basic rules that Christ taught all of us… Love one another and treat each other with kindness. That doesn’t mean you have to agree what those people are doing but don’t take your opinions out on the innocent acts of children.

      To the anonymous who posted this message “Wow… You really misconstrue the innocent acts of a little boy. “. I guess you didn’t understand, the author was satirically responding to the other blogger. He doesn’t really think there is anything wrong with would his little boy is doing, or that it makes him gay. If his son did turn out to be gay, I don’t think he would have a problem with it. Please reread it carefully. It is almost all tongue in cheek.

  7. LOL… Love the way you got your point about intolerance across with wit and satire.

    Good job!

    A brilliant use of irony & satire in your riposte there.

    What I find so sad and frustrating with people like WBMW is that they cannot fathom, cannot entertain (even for a moment) the notion that their ideas, presumptions, aesthetics & prescriptions; all of them, might just be wrong. Not just their interpretations, mind you- but their actual judgements of God’s will & wisdom- might just be off the mark. What’s more, they believe that it is divinely inspired will for them NOT to entertain such a notion of God’s will. Without backdrop of religion & religious sanction it does, of course, become more difficult to sustain a homophobic position based on a purely moral (and not purely subjective, aesthetic) standpoint.   

    Many people believe, quite strongly, that they have relationship (and, often, a very personal relationship) with God. What we fail to remember is that (by God’s nature) that relationship can be very one-sided at times: God speaks to us figuratively, and not (typically) physically, literally and objectively. We make inferences, we ascribe, we attribute- subjectively.     

    No one feels comfortable with the idea of saying “I don’t know -I can’t truly know- what God really wants here” and too often, I think, we fill up that silence & ambiguity with our own dogmas and aesthetics, while pretending it isn’t; while pretending we are both truly knowing & doing God’s will. If God indeed thinks that homosexuality, by writ, is evil and sinful, then the silence has been deafening. Frankly, at the very least, I tend to think that God is apt to be more decisive on matters of greatest significance.  

    But people like WBMW try to pretend that they can speak for the will of God; by imposing their OWN will, their own ascetics, their own judgment into that silence, with the banner of divine authority, scripture, and license. What do the ravings and outpourings of the WBMWs count before the quiet dignity of the Ellen Pages of this world?                    
     
    “Love” may or may not indeed trump “sin” – but there is no god higher than truth.
    And the truth is that when one appoints one’s self as the arbiter and gatekeeper of what is and is not sinful here they are not doing God’s will anymore. On the contrary, they are imposing their OWN will, their own aesthetics (confusing & conflating them with ethics) willfully and vainly, usurping God’s authority to support & justify their purpose. If there are moral absolutes (or near-absolutes) then I have more faith in a just and merciful God judging me, one day, as too forgiving, too tolerant & too inclusive, too permissive, than I do in people like WBMW trying to tell me (or anyone) what is and is not “love” or “sin” or virtue or vice. 

    Faith was meant to reconcile that which we do not know, cannot prove, but gallantly hope: So it is beneath one of faith to hope that others acting out of an abundance (and not a deficit) of “thoughtfulness, tolerance, equality, respect, and basic human compassion” will be proven wrong, and that one’s self will be proven right for condemning them.

  9. Anonymous: I wrote it as satire with tongue firmly planted in cheek. I’m a complete proponent of gay right, gay marriage, and basic equality. Also, not all of us believe in Christ/religion. Just fyi.

  10. I was hoping this was a joke at first, but apparently it isn’t. I hope your son does turn out gay, and force you to open your mind. Why should we live our lives around a book there is no scientific evidence is true? Why should you shun people for being different and not “obedient” instead of just following whatever they hear like some kind of mindless robot? I’m guessing you probably think something is wrong with me as well, because I’m a woman and I DON’T enjoy cooking and cleaning and other domestic activities. You seem like you buy heavily into gender roles. I can’t believe such fanatical and close-minded people exist in this world. You clearly have no ability to think for yourself. Does t the bible also tell you to “love thy neighbor?” So quit being a judgmental, ignorant ass.

    • Uh Heather, just mentioning,
      I think you might want to consult the above posting (the one that said “I wrote it as satire with tongue firmly planted in cheek. I’m a complete proponent of gay right, gay marriage, and basic equality. Also, not all of us believe in Christ/religion. Just fyi.”) I could be wrong, (though I doubt it) but I THINK the author of the article was writing & speaking in a voice of satire & irony; not earnestness. I was under the impression he was using intended & exaggerated irony to critique the opinions & prejudices of MBMW, not endorse them. Satire. Just thought I might mention that as a consideration…

      …Unless, of course, your response itself was purely satirical… in which case, ‘ya-got-me’ — and that would be a good example of satire.

    As a hetero father of a (now adult) gay son, I too first saw the signs in the kitchen……… :P
    Seriously though, brilliant writing. Loved every word.

  12. So your son sings at the top of his lungs, picks out outfits and ties, and wants to cook and that makes him gay? Wow…apparently my husband must be gay because he does two out of those three. I’ve seen the movie and I love the song let it go. To me the song is about embracing who you really are, who you’re meant to be, instead of being something everyone wants and expects you to be. That’s just what Elsa does when whiles she singing th e song…she transforms into the woman and queen she’s meant to be. She becomes her own person. And what if your son really was gay? Would you take him some where to try and ‘cure’ him or just disown him altogether? This post is ridiculous.
