Feminist Disney, "Gay Disney Prince's"
"Gay Disney Prince’s"

amateurarethehottest:

Who says there has never been a Disney movie with gay characters? Has anyone ever seen the Fox and the Hound? Can you honestly tell me that’s not about two gay lovers who want to be together but can’t? Seriously… It’s classic. Two boys who are ‘best friends’ fall in love and are tore apart because ‘its wrong.’ One usually is flamboyant and accepting, yet confused as to why the can’t be together.. the fox, Todd. Then you have the more masculine, hard nosed guy who loves his ‘friend’ but knows they can’t be together.. the hound, Copper. They eventually go their separate ways, grow up and meet again. When they do things fall back into place, but people start finding out. Then all hell breaks loose, violent arises. Usually the masculine one (Copper) has to follow order and starts being mean to the more flamboyant one (Todd). The masculine one ends up protecting the other but still they can’t be together. In the end they find heterosexual love and the story ends.. hello.. I just described the fox and the hound.. its a gay love story!

It’s one of my favorite movies but I never realised it until now. Sorry if I ruined it for you, but I think I made it better. I think its cute and I think people should be aware of this. So please reblog this and keep it going!

herm… it’s a story about friendship and conflicting sides (in other words, it could also be an allegory for something like kids in staunch republican/democrat households, or something).  Two guys (aka, animals) being friends does not automatically equal a romantic relationship, even if they, you know, help each other (“and then find hetero love and the story ends”??).   To be real, it’s nice to interpret things that way, not saying it’s bad to think it if you want to think it, but the point of critique of lack of queer characters in animation/media etc. isn’t that some characters couldn’t be thought of in that way, in our minds- it’s that there is a real lack of actual, definite/defined queer characters.    The “hetero” relationship you identify in the movie is a lot more clearly defined as “a romantic relationship.”   Queers need that- to see their love validated, represented, and seen as normal by others- just like straight people do.   So, yeah, I’ll still say there has not been a Disney movie with gay characters.
