thin privilege at work
I’ve already read: Strawberry Panic by Sakurako Kimino, Girlfriends by Milk Morinaga, Ash by Malinda Lo,and Huntress by Malinda Lo. I would love to hear any ideas.
Anything by Sarah Waters, she only has a few books out but they’re all about lesbians in Victorian era England (so late 1800s.) Tipping the Velvet and Fingersmith are my two personal favorites. And don’t read Affinity unless you want your heart ripped out and stomped on.
A friend of mine posted this Mormon woman’s extremely thorough analysis of “Frozen” as a movie that is secretly propagating the gay agenda. And she’s not talking about the gay sauna dudes - she posits that Elsa’s “power” is actually “gayness” because she can’t control it and her parents force her to hide it and once she “comes out” about her power she’s happier and a more whole person. She says Anna represents how the gay agenda-mongers see the noble straights: As people who are welcome to get married to anyone they want after knowing them for 10 seconds. Then she breaks down the lyrics to “Let It Go” and italicizes the parts she thinks are the most gay, including but not limited to “Couldn’t keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.”
Is it weird that I kind of love a queer reading of Frozen? Like I know this woman is a homophobe who wrote this to scare fellow god-fearing parents off of taking their kids to see it (though the author has, by her own admission, seen “Frozen” three times in theaters - but it’s OK because it allowed her more time to analyze how gay it is!!!), but I’m kind of reading it and nodding along like, yeah, that actually is a pretty fascinating interpretation.
