This blog entry about Frozen has been floating around my Facebook newsfeed. This is a quote from the entry where the blogger says she hopes her blog post can “open your eyes to the homosexual agenda, and the principles advanced to promote it”:
"Elsa has a great power that she has been taught by her parents from the time she was a child, is not publicly acceptable and that she must fear its expression, at all cost, thus hide it from people, even her own sister who could be hurt by it - even killed. Shame is at the core of Elsa’s feelings about her magical powers: same-sex attraction.”
The person I know who posted it on Facebook (who got a lot of backlash from people) followed up with this statement:
"I would HIGHLY recommend you scroll to the bottom of the article where the lyrics of "Let It Go" are analyzed and she is kind enough to italicize the key messages of the Gay Agenda in the song."
Because Facebook is not the proper place to dissect movies and express my opinions on the deep meanings behind them, I am turning to Tumblr.
I personally don’t agree with this article.
Certainly Elsa’s issues represented through the coined phrase “Conceal, don’t feel” can clearly speak for the struggles that come with the pressures put on many people to conceal their homosexuality, but I feel it represents far more than that. The “Conceal, don’t feel” is a wonderful illustration on the stigma of mental disorders in society today, as well. I personally think depression is the best example — a problem experienced by 1 in every 5 adults — continues to be a major issue worldwide, because we have been taught that depression is simply “dramatics” or “over-reactions”. People don’t seek help, grow to hate themselves even more; the problem continues full circle.
I.E. people learn to “conceal, don’t feel”
For me, Elsa’s represents everyone who is going through anything that they feel the need to keep secret. For this woman to go ahead and declare that she feels her article has the chance to “open your eyes to the homosexual agenda, and the principles advanced to promote it” is very close-minded.
Overall many people struggle with the concept of being one’s “TRUE SELF”. We in society today are often so worried about the judgment of others, that we are hiding parts of ourselves from the world. We suppress our true desires in an attempt to fit into a system of values that are already in place: schools, parents, religious systems, etc.
Elsa’s main anthem “Let it Go” represents self-acceptance for whatever someone might be going through. It’s a beautiful thing. This woman caught onto something, but I feel like she missed the overall message.
