Whenever a new Disney movie for the 3-9-year-old crowd is released, leftist commentators go nuts, insisting that any friendship between same-sex characters means they are gay. It happened with Frozen 2, Raya, and now Luca. Even when characters are clearly little children, this madness still happens.
The neoliberal left (which is a tautology because there’s no other kind) doesn’t believe in friendship. If people are nice to each other, the left feels puzzled and uncomfortable. Why are they nice? What do they want? What’s the value they are trying to squeeze out of the interaction?
