Character in 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' comes out as gay
Fox News ^ | 5/18/2014 | Chris Kensler

Cannes – Is the world ready for its first animated gay Viking?

"How to Train Your Dragon 2" sure hopes so.

"How to Train Your Dragon 2" opened at the Cannes Film Festival last week with its stars in tow, a big party on the beach, and a life-sized Toothless the Dragon hanging out for photo ops with reporters.

The sequel to its $500 million blockbuster predecessor has a lot to prove, with the kid movie’s star Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) now a young man, and the Vikings vs. dragons conceit of “Dragons 1” rendered effectively moot as the dragons and Vikings have become best of pals.

But not even writer/director Dean DeBlois was able to cook up one of the new movie’s most surprising twists.

Gobber is gay.

Featuring more adult themes is nothing new for his “Dragon” series, DuBois says.

“It’s my personal crusade, I want to break down the stigma that animation is just for kids,” he said.

Just for kids? But the kids are watching it!

Probably the reason they are doing it.

Then shouldn’t the sequel title be “How to Drain Your Dragon”?

Haven’t we pushed the envelope enough with homosexual characters in movies and TV shows?

What’s next? Requiring that all characters either be gay, or else having their sex change operations as part of the plot?????? sheesh.................................

The dragon is the archetypal symbol for evil and the enemy, the strong enemy, since folklore began. In the Bible itself, in fact.

They want to tame it. Control it Befriend it.

This is the outcome

And who, in Hollywood, cares about contributing to the good of children’s formation?

That women allow their children to be fed with this crap tells you all you need to know about what’s about to happen after November when the beast pulls out in front of Obama and everyone the chamber of commerce party throws at her from behind

It’s like living in the dark ages, really

The ad-libbed one-liner will now need to be written into Gobber’s role in Part 3, which DuBois says he has just started outlining.

So it is not happening in part 2. Not going to happen at all is my guess. They pull this a lot. It was claimed that Peter Parker was going to be gay in part 2 as well. And they implied it with the Scooby Doo movie years back as well. Never actually happens. Just hype and promotion.

I can’t remember all of the instances but in raising my kids we of course watched a lot of cartoons and some were leftovers from “back in the day” and as an adult I was somewhat surprised at the political bent I was seeing that I of course didn’t get when I was a kid, but just the same those messages were there. My kids are in their 20’s and 30’s now so it’s been a while. But now I have grand kids....Can’t wait for Lion Queer.

Interesting how we have moved from "the love that dare not speak its name" to "the love that will not shut its *bleeping* mouth" in such a short period of time.

Homosexuals are too focused on instant gratification to recognize the dangers that are lurking just around the corner as a direct result of their "victory."

Too bad none of their predecessors in Nazi Germany survived to tell them the tale.

It’s the power trip. I can remember when I was teaching swimming classes as a young adult. I could get these little water bugs to do anything I could think of. i remember telling my mom, “these kids will listen to anything I say, and believe it.” And I can remember being a little scared of that power.

That would make such an excellent tagline. If I can make it fit, can I use it??

They need to brainwash the kids from an early age. Kids are constantly being inundated with a pro homo message in the news, on tv, music, social media, gubmint schools, boy scouts, girl scouts, even some churches.

Any honest mental health professional will tell you that the overwhelming majority of male homosexuals were molested as a child by an older male or introduced to t he activity by peers.

Look at Chastity Bono. Her mother left her in the care of a lesbian nanny that molested her for years with Cher's consent. The bitch should be in jail.

The left's goal is to remove all stigma from homosexuality and make it more acceptable than heterosexuality.

I think I read something about this happening before. It didn't turn out well.

Yep, get people talking about the movie to drive more people to see it.

Now that I know they’re not doing any such thing for real in the movie, I’ll go ahead and take my kids after all.

You can go ahead and try. You have six characters left with what is below.

“the love that dare not speak its name” to “the love that will not shut its *bleeping* mouth”

You might be able to make something coherent out of it.

Great, but you need to replace some of the quotation marks because they aren’t showing up right. Look at it and you will see what I mean.

Actually I think Pat Buchanan was saying “the love that will not shut up” around 1992.

I am more libertarian than mosst on FR and have no problem with gay people. I want everyone to be happy. However, must this be at the forefront of everything???? I am a huge NFL fan and can’t list to NFL Radio on Sirius anymore because it’s Michael Sam all day, every day. I find myself screaming at the radio-Talk about the 4-3 vs. the the 3-4. Opine if Bortles and Manziel are going to be successful. Enough with some halfway decent DE.

This from the 1963 congressional record on Communist goals:

#26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

14 In the next Hobbit episode we’ll we find out that not only is Gandalf gay, so is Bilbo which explains Gandalf’s fondness for Hobbits.

NOV 2009 - In a Q&A with Details magazine, the British film and stage actor and openly homosexual star of the “Lord of the Rings” blockbuster motion picture trilogy, Ian McKellen, admitted to a habit of tearing out the Bible passage that condemns homosexuality -- Leviticus 18:22 -- every time he finds 1 in his hotel room. The passage states, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." "I'm not proudly defacing the book," he asserted, "but it's a choice between removing that page and throwing away the whole Bible." McKellen said his actions inspired others to do the same. "I got delivered a package of 40 of those pages that had been torn out by a married couple I know. They put them on a bit of string so that I could hang it up in the bathroom."

Aside from the obvious that the homosexuals of that era didn't procreate, Pastor Scott Lively and Kevin Abram made the case in 1995 in their book ...

Their stated purpose was to counter historical revisionism by the homosexual political movement which had been attempting since the 1970s to fabricate a “Gay Holocaust” equivalent to that suffered by the Jews in Nazi Germany. The Pink Swastika, 4th edition, on-line

OFGS. I thought for a minute we’d have to skip this movie, and my kids have been looking forward to it for months. (They LOVE Toothless! We have a kitty who looks just like him, in the face. It’s quite a resemblance!) Luckily they say it’s just a throwaway line, and I’m sure I can make up some other reason Gobber says that.

But if they’re going to elaborate on this nonsense in another sequel, we may have to skip that one. Sigh. I wish to heck they wouldn’t do this crap with kids’ movies.

We saw this movie this week, and I just wanted to report in on the “gay” issue. Personally I think Craig Ferguson was having some fun with this (he is rather mischievous!) since the line he says in the movie could not possibly be construed in this way. There’s not enough information to even figure out what the character is talking about. Gobber says, “That’s the reason I never married. Well, that and one other reason.” This flew right OVER my kids’ heads. They had absolutely no idea. Had I not seen this article in advance, I think I would have thought he was missing his “manly bits” (since he’s also missing an arm and a leg).

For other reasons, I’d like to recommend supporting the movie. Honor, valor and family values are stressed throughout the movie. Several times, characters repeat a variation on, “A chief protects his own,” and indeed the “true” chieftain does just that. The dragons reject the reign of a dictatorial, bullying dragon for one that is brave and willing to fight, but clearly on their side. A parent who was not there when the child was young apologizes to the child for that lapse. Lots of good stuff in there. :)
