That seems like quite a leap. The Walt Disney Company has been offering its employees benefits for their same-sex partners since 1996, but a princess marrying a princess? Spoiler warning for “Frozen”: the princess doesn’t marry the prince in this one, but she does end up with “ice dude.”
Finished Frozen. Glad Anna ends up w ice dude, not prince. & saves herself. Still, would luv to see full range of families in kids movies.

Plenty think it’s time for Disney to move ahead with same-sex couples and families.

What do the rest of you think?
No. RT @sallykohn: Watching Frozen, it's awesome. But ain't it finally time for a kid's film where the princess marries a princess?!

@sallykohn please…leave your politics out of my children's movies. Let them be kids.

@sallykohn that would be cool. Maybe the girl can get pregnant and have an abortion at 26 weeks. I know, we can call her Wendy…..

@sallykohn I'd say do away with sexual roles in movies for kids altogether. Let kids be kids for fuck's sake.

Some are encouraged by the “baby steps” Disney has been taking.

What about Oaken’s gay family?
@sallykohn They DID have a scene where the deep-mountain storekeeper's family was a gay family with 3 kids!
