Someone said :
[...] which is the one criticism I would have with this that. It is falling into the Disney trap of "Happy ever after" when in reality, gay or not, the brown haired kid would have most likely kicked 7 shades of poo out of the ginger kid just to hide his own secret but then again cartoons aren't suppose to be a 100% representation of reality.
Is it not the point that this love is no longer "a secret to hide"?
And that the new generation is no longer living in the fear of your generation.
Last week a colleague was telling me how bullies called something her kid was doing "gay", and his natural reply was that he did not find this insulting and that the bulltboy would have to find another insult (he offered a selection too!).
The child was smart nough to know it was safe to do so in this instance, and had no internalized negativity towards same-gender relationship. (No more than he had towards mix-gender relationships anyway)
