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?

Glenda moved to Houston from Ohio just before the pandemic hit. She didn't know that COVID-19-related delays would make it difficult to get her Texas driver's license and apply for unemployment benefits. She quickly found herself in an impossible situation — stranded in a strange place without money for food, gas, or a job to provide what she needed.

Alone, hungry, and scared, Glenda dialed 2-1-1 for help. The person on the other end of the line directed her to the Houston-based nonprofit Bread of Life, founded by St. John's United Methodist pastors Rudy and Juanita Rasmus.

For nearly 30 years, Bread of Life has been at the forefront of HIV/AIDS prevention, eliminating food insecurity, providing permanent housing to formerly homeless individuals and disaster relief.

Glenda sat in her car for 20 minutes outside of the building, trying to muster up the courage to get out and ask for help. She'd never been in this situation before, and she was terrified.

When she finally got out, she encountered Eva Thibaudeau, who happened to be walking down the street at the exact same time. Thibaudeau is the CEO of Temenos CDC, a nonprofit multi-unit housing development also founded by the Rasmuses, with a mission to serve Midtown Houston's homeless population.

Lately, Twitter has been a rough place for famous Chrises. First Evans had his day on the trending side bar, and now it's Pratt's turn. With the way things are going, we cringe for what's in store for Hemsworth.

Earlier this week, Warrior Nun writer Amy Berg posted a photo on Twitter of four famous Chrises - Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, and Chris Pratt. "One has to go," Berg captioned the photo.

Pratt started trending as he was quickly dubbed the "worst Chris." And things just got worse from there. Until some real-life heroes stepped in and tried to address the situation, defending their co-star and friend.

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

A photo of Joe Biden hugging and kissing his only living son, Hunter, is circulating after Newsmax TV host John Cardillo shared it on Twitter with the caption, "Does this look like an appropriate father/son interaction to you?"

The question is clearly meant to be a dig at Biden, whose well-documented life in politics includes many examples of both his deep love for his family and his physical expressions of affection. While his opponents have cherry-picked photos to try to paint him as "creepy," those who know him well—and who are in some of those viral images—defend Biden's expressions of affection as those of a close friend and grandfatherly figure. (And in fact, at least one photo of Biden holding and kissing a child's face was of him and his grandson at his son Beau's funeral, taken as a still shot from this video.)

Everyone has their own level of comfort with physical space and everyone's line of what's appropriate when it comes to physical affection are different, but some accusations of inappropriateness are just...sad. And this photo with this caption is one of those cases.
