Who, or what is being forced?

Yes, lots of virtue signalling going on these days..but so what! None of it forces me to do anything.

Nobody said anything about being disgusted and many of these woke films aren't successes.

I go to the movies to be entertained not woke by hypocrites

The plots are horrible and then they screw it up even worse when they try to insert the token gay character or token minority character into the plot.




however, i don't understand what exactly it is supposed to do with me? that i find it normal when two men kiss? sure, that's how life works, you are constantly influenced. kissing is not a bad thing per se, isn't it? but i understand that it annoys some people, because they have the feeling of being indoctrinated. and that's true. it's a kind of socially accepted education.

I heard the film sucked not because of the kiss but because it sucked.

Betcha Disney will blame their low ticket sales on "anti-gay" stuff instead of accepting the fact that they made a movie that sucked.

The term is "toxic fandom".

Now when a movie doesn't do well, or not well enough, it's the fault of the fanbase, AND your fault because you are a straight white male.

Kudos to Disney for showing How perversion of sexual nature really works.


Fixed that for you!

Ever done oral? Anal? Touched yourself? Watched someone touch themselves? Used a toy? If yes, then I suppose you're a pervert. If no, I pity you.

Rogue 1 has so far been the best out of all the new ones honestly. I hope they don't try to revive that somehow...


It'll have to be remade because the kiss at the end was hetero. You know, they need to be braver with it. It was too exclusive and didn't include human/alien relations or show homosexuality or trandgenderism or anything.

All those things aside, if you are against them being shown explicitly in a movie you expect to be able to take your kids to, then you are some kind of prude.

A prude to not accept a same-sex kiss? Okay...

Did I not read your tonality properly? The message didn't exactly come off as sarcasm...

That said, I did imagine Yoda doing an arm wave while readig it.

Homosexuality has been around since the beginning of mankind. The fact that some people are still not used to it is remarkable. .


That's not true and actually the opposite.

Most people don't give a rats arse about homesexuality. What they get annoyed about is taking their kids to watch a kids movie and irrelevant characters and irrelevant focus is placed on sexuality or sexuality, or color for no other reason than sjw bs.

They have overdone it and people are tired of being woke with everything they watch.




It's called zeitgeist. The film industry mirrors society, otherwise such films would not be successful. And in civilized open societies, the subject is only marginal. Of course you register as a hetero when two men or two women kiss, that's natural, but why should i be disgusted? And what exactly is so bad when children see something like that? .


The film industry is infested through and through with perverts like Weinstein who actually believe their behavior is the norm (spoiler alert: it is not) and are actually shocked when "woke" pictures like Dark Fate fail.

By your own logic, since their "woke" movies fail, the film industry DOES NOT mirror society (normal majority of society)
The problem is they do not stop at "equality" - that is NEVER the objective

The "slippery slope" is REAL. This "woke"/leftist film/communications industry is always pushing the boundaries into perversion: Cenk Uygur has already broached the bestiality limit- the next limit the Left will attack and try to normalize is Pedophilia. California already has its' NAMBLA group...

THAT is the disgusting part.

When being gay is a stage prop, instead of something found organically in the character.

red light saber in the dark and then the casual stroll down the hallway just annihilating everyone.


I think it was meant to mimic the gritty nature of the light saber battle between Luke and Vadar in Empire strikes back.

Friendly reminder: it was considered a "perversion" to be left handed until about 50 years ago...

There are some kids' movies that don't really have hetero kisses. Frozen didn't have much of a romance with hetero kisses, but the LGBT crowd were mad because they didn't make Elsa gay in Frozen II.

People don't walk around with a big sign openly admitting they are gay you know. Maybe where you live people are perhaps afraid to admit it? Which is a whole other issue.

The books and games, which were made canon when JJ made the first new film of the batch from Lucas himself. Which opened up a whole whack of characters that were bisexual, in relationships with other species, gay, transpecies, you name it. Just no-one actually cared. It's tough to get a definitive list, but here's what I found.

They do in California. And other places around the world. There's even a parade..

If the cold never bothered her anyway, why would she need someone else in that way?

I'd argue that her being a single Monarch strengthens the strong woman narrative..

And there's a reason for it. I made a post earlier addressing the pride parade symbolism.
