The internet is calling on Disney to give them the Disney princess they and their kids deserve. They want to see a lesbian Disney princess, and they want it to be none other than Elsa. Woot, way to go for representation for the LGBTQ community!

Because when you think out it,Elsa’s story in “Frozen” is a story of breaking free from societal pressures and norms and living an authentic life that’s truthful to oneself. Just check out the bridge on the movie’s most infamous/beloved song, “Let It Go”:

5f76ae8f-02b9-4076-9f91-62fbf3282034Don’t let them in, don’t let them see.
Be the good girl you always have to be.
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know.
Well, now they know!

Hmmm… I don’t know about you, but it certainly sounds very much like she’s singing about coming out of the closet. (And don’t you dare tell me it hasn’t occurred to you at least once.)

In fact, some people were wondering if Elsa wasn’t lesbian to begin with. (Hey, wasn’t that part of the movie’s subtext? No? Gee, could’ve sworn that was the case.)

This Twitter user began a vote.

And lo and behold, the hashtag #GiveElsaAGirlfriend was born.

It spread like frost in the chill of winter, and warmed the hearts of the Twitterverse.

There were naysayers who felt disgusted by the idea of Elsa being gay, but the sentiment was quickly rebuffed.

And c’mon, folks, this one’s for our kids, too.

Because deserve to have love, no matter what form it takes.

and kids deserve a safe space to live their best, most authentic lives.

And no matter how you look at it, representation matters.

In the end, love is love, and
