According to “Lightyear” actor Chris Evans, exposing young children to same-sex kissing between female characters is a “social advancement” and anyone who thinks differently is an “idiot.”
All of which doesn’t do much to promote Walt Disney’s new Pixar animated movie, which effectively advances a pro-gay agenda in the eyes of many.
“The real truth is those people are idiots,” the actor told Reuters during a recent interview. “Every time there’s been social advancement as we wake up, the American story, the human story is one of constant social awakening and growth and that’s what makes us good.”
Evans voices the character Buzz Lightyear, the action figure of “Toy Story” fame, and he was highly supportive of the on-screen kiss between Alisha Hawthorne, a female lead voiced by Uzo Aduba, and another female character, Kiko.
Not content with dismissing those interested in protecting children from sexual indoctrination idiots, Evans went on to call them “dinosaurs” who will eventually “die off.”
“When that happens there’s always going to be people who are afraid and unaware, and trying to hold on to what was before,” he continued. “But those people die off like dinosaurs and so, you know, I think the goal is to pay them no mind, march forward and embrace the growth that makes us human.”
Entertainment Weekly said the “family-friendly film depicts not only Pixar’s first prominent LGBTQ character in a movie but also its first same-sex kiss on screen” in an article that details a discussion with filmmaker Angus MacLane and producer Galyn Susman on the evolution of the scene.
MacLane tells EW that he “didn’t realize how significant” the moment would be as he explains how the same-sex relationship developed, but the entertainment news site noted that in addition to the kiss, the finished film “has other clear nods to Alisha and Kiko’s love story, including Alisha telling Buzz that she married a woman.”
The kiss was initially dropped, but Disney reversed course amid the controversy in Florida, when the company publicly opposed a law prohibiting classroom discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through grade 3 — the radical left and their media allies inaccurately dubbed the law the “Don’t Say Gay” bill — and vowed to help override the legislation.
The controversy prompted “various employees at Pixar to collectively voice their grievances in an open letter,” EW reported. The letter complained that Disney had a history of censoring LGBTQ characters and stories and Disney would add the gay kiss back in soon after.
“I totally agree with the sentiment,” Susman said, speaking of the letter. “I’m not always a big fan of sharing with the whole world everything that we’re thinking, so though I agree with the sentiment, I probably would’ve liked it to be released in a different way. But here’s the thing — people look to see themselves in films. The more they can find themselves in the movie, the more they can connect to the movie. That’s the whole idea when you’re working toward having a diverse cast, is to be able to reach out and touch and speak to as many people as you possibly can.”
