Fans share what it would mean to them if Elsa had a girlfriend in 'Frozen 2.'

In 2013, Disney released "Frozen."

Since "Frozen" ended with Anna and Kristof getting their reciprocal crushes on, fans have been clamoring to ship Queen Elsa with ... someone in the inevitable sequel.

With "Frozen 2" officially in the works now, fans on Twitter came up with brilliant idea: Not only should Elsa finally get a love interest in the new movie, that love interest should be a woman.

The tweet that started it all was simple enough:


But pretty soon, fans started taking it seriously.


Some LGBT fans chimed in to say how much they would have loved to see themselves represented on screen as kids.


A few noted that a gay Disney princess could not only help LGBT kids feel accepted — it could help them feel empowered to come out.


Others pointed out that giving Elsa a female partner affirms the movie's message ... by quoting the movie itself:


Though Elsa makes it through "Frozen" without a romantic side-quest (and hey, that's cool too!) ... giving her a same-gender love interest totally works.

Despite that whole flee-the-kingdom-after-causing-endless-winter mix-up, Elsa is queen of Arendelle now, which means she's free to choose whoever the heck she wants.

And ... let's face it: "Let it Go" is already, like, the most obvious coming out anthem of all time (so obvious that Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out" is now in second place).

More importantly, it would be a huge boost for LGBT kids and a historic moment for "Disney."

While the company has given its iconic princess characters female partners in its more adult properties, giving Queen Elsa a co-queen — and treating it like it's no big deal — lets young viewers know that it's not only OK to love whoever you love, you can do so and still be a fierce, capable leader.

It would certainly get many fans lining up for "Frozen 2" a lot sooner.

The first nonstraight Disney princess? A move that would mean so much to so many? Hard not to root for.

What do you say, "Disney?" Let's build this particular snowman, eh?

Albert Einstein

One of the strangest things about being human is that people of lesser intelligence tend to overestimate how smart they are and people who are highly intelligent tend to underestimate how smart they are.

This is called the Dunning-Kruger effect and it’s proven every time you log onto Facebook and see someone from high school who thinks they know more about vaccines than a doctor.

The interesting thing is that even though people are poor judges of their own smarts, we’ve evolved to be pretty good at judging the intelligence of others.

“Such findings imply that, in order to be adaptive, first impressions of personality or social characteristics should be accurate,” a study published in the journal Intelligence says. “There is accumulating evidence that this is indeed the case—at least to some extent—for traits such as intelligence extraversion, conscientiousness, openness, and narcissism, and even for characteristics such as sexual orientation, political ideology, or antigay prejudice.”

'Merry Christmas' on YouTube.

The world must have been—mostly—good this year. Because Elton John and Ed Sheeran have teamed up to gift us all with a brand new Christmas single.

The song, aptly named “Merry Christmas,” is a perfect blend of silly and sweet that’s cheery, bright and just a touch bizarre.

Created with the holiday spirit in every way, it has whimsical snowball fights, snow angels (basically all the snow things), festive sweaters, iconic throwbacks and twinkling lights galore. Plus all profits from the tune are dedicated to two charities: the Ed Sheeran Suffolk Music Foundation and the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

I personally don’t know which is more of a highlight: Ed Sheeran channeling his inner-Mariah, performing a faux sexy dance in a leg revealing Santa outfit, or him flying through the air with a giant Frosty the Snowman … who seems to be sporting glasses similar to Elton’s. Are we meant to believe that Elton is the Snowman? This music video even has mystery.
