Last week, the world got to watch American right wingers absolutely lose their shit after Michael Sam had the nerve, the nerve, to kiss his boyfriend after being drafted to the St. Louis Rams. “Children might have been watching!” cried poor morning show host (and male stripper enthusiast) Amy Kushnir, another tragic victim of the gays shoving their agenda in everyone’s faces by behaving like human beings in a loving relationship. Where do they get off? (Don’t answer that. This is a family site.) And now comes word that one of the vikings in How To Train Your Dragon 2 will come out of the closet, so let’s all watch Dreamworks take the biggest fucking gamble in children’s movie history by basically daring the Christian right to start lighting theaters on fire. E! News reports:
Gobber (Craig Ferguson), the right-hand man to Berk tribal chief Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), comes out as gay in the much-anticipated Dragon sequel.
And he does it in the most subtle way. While watching a husband and wife bicker, Gobber says that’s why he never got married—and then he simply adds there’s one other reason.
He doesn’t explain anything further, but Dragon 2‘s openly gay writer and director, Dean DeBlois, confirms Gobber was talking about being a same-sex-loving Viking.
“When we were recording Craig Ferguson, I had written the line, ‘This is why I never got married,” and he, as he often does, added it as an ad lib and he said, ‘Yup, Gobber is coming out of the closet,’” DeBlois told me earlier today at the Cannes Film Festival while promoting the film at the Carlton Hotel. “I think that’s a really fun [and] daring move to put in. I love the idea that Gobber is Berk’s resident gay.”
Keep in mind, Republicans already think common core will turn kids gay, so I can’t even imagine how they’ll react to finding out a cartoon character doesn’t fuck women in the babyhole while Jesus watches in the corner. Better to let kids find out about homosexuals the natural way, the American way. Namely hearing someone on the bus say “faggot,” and then using that insult for the rest of their lives without giving a shit about its connotation. USA.
