Gay Kiss Scene Back in Toy Story Prequel After Backlash

I’ll bet you wish your childhood wasn’t based around popular culture.

If your childhood had been based on agriculture and religion, it would be really hard for them to go back in time and destroy it.

The Guardian:

A same-sex kiss has been added back to upcoming Disney-Pixar film Lightyear after being cut, according to a report in Variety.

The animated prequel for Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear features a relationship between two female characters, one voiced by three-time Emmy winner Uzo Aduba. A kiss between the two had originally been removed but following recent uproar related to Disney’s handling of both LGBTQ characters and the recent “don’t say gay” bill, it has reportedly been restored.

The move follows a letter released by LGBTQ Pixar employees, which claimed that Disney executives had insisted “overtly gay affection” was removed from all animated features.

“We at Pixar have personally witnessed beautiful stories, full of diverse characters, come back from Disney corporate reviews shaved down to crumbs of what they once were,” it read.

It was in response to Disney’s mishandling of the recent Florida bill that seeks to ban teaching of sexual identity and gender orientation in early-grade education as well as in “a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students”.

So this is literally about punishing Ron DeSantis and the Florida voters.

And just generally punishing America and the world.

Along with the sexual diversity, this film is also filled with colorful diversity.

America no longer has a culture.

It is going to have to be built back from the ground up.
