disney is just not your friend. i don’t care what gay subtext (or even gay Text) they put in children’s animation show #536, they are a for-profit corporation that will green light whatever they think will make the most money and abandon you whenever they decide your identity won’t do that. i don’t care that some creative working for disney “fought hard” to get your gay ship to be canon or “fought hard” for lgbt representation. pay that creative directly. talk about how happy you are within the context of disney being a horrific embodiment of late-stage capitalist corporate hegemony and control. people who i know are leftists continue to insist on supporting content born from the poisoned tree of the disney corporation because they don’t want to have to put in the work of pirating/ignoring whatever disney churns out that is designed to pander to them. disney is not your friend. none of disney’s intellectual properties are your friend. if you cannot responsibly consume disney content—meaning, you are always aware of the insidious nature of said content and act accordingly—then you should not consume it at all. your children’s show is not the exception, it is the literal embodiment of the rule.
