this pisses me off (the Traditional Values Coalition needs to get a life)–Anti-gay religious group targets Shrek 2:
“Shrek 2 is billed as harmless entertainment but contains subtle sexual messages,” says the coalition, which describes itself as a grassroots inter-denominational lobby with more than 43,000 member churches.
“Parents who are thinking about taking their children to see Shrek 2 may wish to consider the following.”
The article then proceeds to describe one of the characters, an “evil” bartender (voiced by Larry King) who is a male-to-female transgender in transition and who expresses a sexual desire for Prince Charming.
In another identified scene, Shrek and Donkey need rescuing from a dungeon by Pinocchio and his nose, which is made to extend as an escape bridge by getting the wooden boy to lie about not wearing women’s underwear.
And this makes me happy (Go, Matt Groening, go!): Simpsons’ gay character is Patty:
In There’s Something About Marrying, which has aired in the US, Homer Simpson buys a licence to perform dozens of same-sex marriages.
This prompts sister-in-law Patty to explain how she fell for professional golfer Veronica.
