EDITOR’S NOTE: Don’t worry, this story doesn’t contain any spoilers for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
For the average viewer who watched the new “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie, it was practically devoid of romance.
But for liberal journalists foaming at the mouth for Disney to finally indoctrinate the next generation into believing that homosexuality is a lifestyle to be encouraged and praised, the “romance” between two male characters in the film was palpable.
According to the Media Research Center’s NewsBusters, news outlets like Inquisitr, Vulture, Buzzfeed, Yahoo!, and the UK’s Independent have praised Disney for featuring the gay couple of blind monk Chirrut Imwe and his heavily armed protector, Baze Malbus.
Except that they were never written into the script that way.
Despite that fact, liberal journalists refused to see the kind of close, brother-in-arms straight male bonding that Imwe and Malbus had because it fails to advance their social agenda.
But don’t think that Disney will remain immune to having gay main characters. In fact, “The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams first spurred the hunt for gay characters in the upcoming Disney Star Wars movies by suggesting “Rogue One” could very well have some.
After anxiously awaiting a pair, a jilted Fusion whined that “Chirrut and Baze’s relationship makes a poor excuse for queer representation in a galaxy far, far away.”
What do you think of this?
