- Reaction score
The 89er Theatre sparked controversy with a since-removed sign saying it would “fast-forward through” a brief kissing scene in the animated “Toy Story” spinoff.
Because of a circumstance I could not avoid, I saw the animated feature, "Lightyear" this evening, and I watched for the brief scene that has been the source of a lot of controversy. A lesbian kiss.
But that's not the half of it. Lightyear's commanding officer in the story - a Black woman, of course - is MARRIED to a white woman, and has two children as a product of that marriage. Citing the kiss - very brief and not passionate in any way - as cause for cultural outrage seems silly, given the rest of it.
My grandchildren (5, 8, 10) saw the propaganda without comment, which I guess is the point of propaganda. Make it seem normal so there is no reaction.
