I want you to look at this clip. It’s all of 3 seconds. It’s a short, very short, portion of the trailer for the 3rd installment of The Incredibles.
Okay. Did you see the part where Elastigirl drives past the convertible? Did anything stand out? Was there a secret message of any kind? Did anything seem.. queer?
Take a look at this.
Michelle’s Big Beaver sent this to me. People are pig-piling the original poster on Tumblr, and well they should.
This post of hers is troubling on many levels.
Elastigirl is recognized by a car full of fans. She waves back. This, somehow, is a signal that she’s a “friend of Dorothy?”
Furthermore, she knew she had to be gay because she was “way too gorgeous.” Huh?
Yes, there are lesbians that are good-looking, but what’s this notion that the more gorgeous a woman is the more likely she’s a lesbian? When did this become the standard? I’m pretty sure, anomalies aside, the more manly looking a woman is the more likely she’s a lesbian.
The other disturbing angle here is that we are TALKING ABOUT A CARTOON!!!
Yes, I’ve played the game where a group of guys sit around and ask “Ginger or Maryann?” and the guys won’t hesitate to answer even if they don’t know the other guys too well.
But if the new guy wanders into Wilma or Betty territory, the game doesn’t remain so enthusiastic. You have to be real good friends to start talking about your Jane Jetson fetish amongst strangers. But this lesbian shouts to the world that Elastigirl is just “too gorgeous.” Odd.
As long as we’re analyzing a cartoon, Elastigirl is married with 3 kids. Does that not count as evidence of heterosexuality? No?
Lastly, what’s this supposed to mean that “2018 is a gays only event?”
Is this the ambassador for the LGBT “community”? Because she’s apparently thrown down the sparkly gauntlet of division and derision. Why?
How can I think of gay bashers as horrible people when it seems like, given the opportunity, gays would enjoy hetero bashing?
